Hi,

P1684 - Battery disconnected within last 50 starts. Will go away eventually. That code by itself though should NOT illuminate the Check Engine Light. If that is on, you likely have another code besides P1684

P0141 - P0141 02 Sensor Heater Circuit Malfunction (Bank 1 Sensor 2)

P0442 - EVAP Emissions Control - Small leak

P0456 - Check the gas cap.If it is tight and sealed, could be a small leak in a gas line .

Let me know, if needed further assistance.

Hope i helped you.

Thanks for using ' Fixya ' and have a nice day!!

    Thanks for your response!!

    All these codes refer that there is a serious Vacuum Leak or multi component failure your car. You need to take the car to professional on site so that he could fix it.

    As the engine light is ON, the first code refers to the other 3 codes.

    Thanks!!

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/

I have a P0456 code on my 2003 Ford Expedition. Where is the vapor purge solenoid or the canister?


The information you are asking for varies depending on how the vehicle is equipped ie. ENGINE SIZE, AUTOMATIC or MANUAL TRANSMISSION, 2-WHEEL DRIVE, 4-WHEEL DRIVE, ALL-WHEEL DRIVE, etc.
With that said, it also deserves mention that there is a Technical Service Bulletin published by Ford Motor Company that applies to the model year and model that you have listed that involves Diagnostic Test Code (DTC) P0456.

Please note that this bulletin emphasizes the requirement of special equipment to properly diagnose and repair the DTC's listed in the bulletin. Below is a brief (partial) description of the bulletin:

ISSUE
Some vehicles may exhibit a Malfunction Indicator Lamp (MIL) illuminated with Diagnostic Trouble Codes (DTCs) P0442, P0455, P0456, P0457 or P1442 or a "Check Fuel Cap" Lamp illuminated with DTC P0457 for the Evaporative Emission System. This may be caused by loose or leaking hoses, loose or broken fuel cap, a leak at the top of the fuel filler pipe neck, etc.
ACTION
Use the Rotunda Leak Detector Smoke Machine (Part 218-00001) or equivalent, to locate and repair leaks in the Evaporative Emission System.

What are troubleshooting codes P1684 and P0456?


P0456 is a small vacuum leak - see if you can trace down the vac lines for inspection according to the diagram that's on the sticker under the hood (it should be near the end of the hood prop on the covering over the radiator). I just took a picture of my 2002 Chrysler Town & Country but to get it small enough to upload you can't read the detail.

P1684 is an easily trigerred code that is from a diagnostic reader or battery issue - not 100% sure of it's cause but it does not trip the engine light.

What is the diagnostic codes P 0700 P1684 p0442 p0455 p0456 on a 2001 dodge Caravan with a 3 3"


P0700: EATX Controller DTC present
P1684: Battery was desconnected
P0442: EVAP leak monitor medium (.040). Leak detected.
P0455:
EVAP leak monitor large. Leak detected.
P0456: EVAP leak monitor small (.020). Leak detected.

I suggest check the lines and flow it down to the ldp (leak detection pump) that is just behind the steering gear under the van It has a wire connector and 2 large EVAP hoses. look for any split or crack then follow the lines back to the tank. Even a small crack is a leak.

Hope helped with this. Remember rated this help. Good luck.

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!

CODES,P0442,P0455,P0456,P1684


P0442, P0455 AND P0456 are all evaporative leak monitor test failures (small, medium and large leaks). These codes appear anytime the integrity of the air space above the fuel or the lines to/from the vapor canister or purge valve. If there is no damage to the canister, check the lines that run under the van from the fuel tank and canister to the purge valve (under the hood). Also, check to make sure that the hoses are not split or disconnected where they connect to the purge valve. The P1684 is abit more confusing. This is not a valid DTC for your vehicle. It's possible the scanner the shop you went to is an OTC scanner that is reporting a false code. It's also possible they wrote it down incorrectly. The closest thing that makes any sense is a P1486 which would indicate a pinched hose in the same monitor system as the other 3 codes. Best of luck!
