2007 town & country has "gas cap" where odometer reading is. what causes this and how can I reset it?


The message usually means the engine has been run with the gas cap off, or the cap is leaking.
You may have to use a scanner or code reader to erase the code.
Check your owners manual for details.

Check engine light comes on


yes. the rubber gaskets do wear out. on most vehicles the gas cap
should be tightened 'til it"clicks". you probably can't tell from the
"appearance" but if you tighten 'til it clicks then drive for awshile and still
get the same code, the next step is a NEW gas cap/

My check engine light came on. The dealership said "filler neck leaking causing evaporative leak." The gas cap also says "loose cap will turn on check engine light." Would like to try a new gas cap but...


sad to say sir that how to clear the code is not easy in manual clearing, you need diagnostic tool to clear the dtc, but some dtc will cleared by 20-50 consecutive warm up if no other trouble code detected by the computer

Engine light on cleared and came back on


Evap Codes.You got the codes. Leaks. Now check the entire system. May be a cracked or loose hose. If not,check valves,switches.solenoids. If nothing you can find or are familiar with on site,you will need professional help and possibly a pressure test,vacuum test, smoke test etc,to find the problem.

Code P0456 on 2003 Town & Country


Below are the possible causes for your engine light and error code:

Possible Causes:
  • EVAP fuel tank or canister vapor hoses leaking or damaged
  • EVAP system component leaking, fuel cap loose or missing
  • Leak detection pump damaged or leaking

The fuel cap is probably the most common cause of this problem. It's considered part of the emission system and if faulty or not place on the filler tube correctly, it will throw an error. Best of luck with your engine light issue. Take care!

Error codes 442 and 456 on 2003 Chrysler Town and Country


Could be the gas cap.  Do you fill the tank with the engine running?
Otherwise, check the hoses near the Evap canister.  I have 2003 T&C and had the small leak and large leak codes.  I looked at the evap cansiter and the hose coming from the fuel tank vapor line had a huge crack in it, to the point it had fallen off the evap caniser.  I trimmed the end of the hose and reconnected and voila, no codes.
The evap canister is on the driver's side of the van, underneath, slightly behind the drivers seat.
BTW, to clear the codes without an OBDII reader, remove the negative cable for 5-10 minutes (15 to be safe).  The computer resets and clears the codes, except for one that it sets saying loss of power to the memory.
