Question about 1997 Toyota T100
P0450 is Evaporate emission system pressure sensor/switch
the cause could be
1. short or open in the vapor pressure sensor circuit
2.vapour pressure sensor
You can test with the following
you can access the ECM behind the glove box. turn ignition on,backprobe the ECM connector, on A/T models, measure voltage between terminals #1 (green/black wire) and #22 (brown/black wire) at the ECM E6 connector. on M/T models measure the voltage between terminals #1 (green/black wire) and #9 (brown/black wire) at ECM E6. if voltage is 4.5 - 5.5 volts, go to the next step. If the voltage is not 4.5 - 5.5 volts, replace ECM and retest.
2. back-probe ECM connector on A/T models measure voltage between terminals #15 (red/blue wire) and #22 (brown/black wire) at ECM E6. on M/T models measure voltage between terminals #4 (red/blue wire) at ECM E5 and connector #9 (brown/black wire) at ECM E6 connector. on all models disconnect the vacuum hose from the vapor pressure sensor. sensor is located near the brake master cylinder. connect a vacuum pump to sensor. if voltage is 2.9-3.7 volts without vacuum applied and 1.3-2.1 volts with .59 in.Hg (2kpa) vacuum applied. replace ECM and retest if voltage is not as specified go to next step.
3. check for open r short circuit in the wiring harness between vapor pressure sensor and ECM. repair wiring as necessary. if wiring harness is okay replace the vapor pressure sensor.
Hope this helps
