This code (P1457) is not a leak code like a gas cap or gas tank leak, it is caused by a problem with a part of the Evap system called the "Evap Bypass Solenoid", there are Technical service bulletins about this code and the solenoid is the fix, this is a dealer part and when u buy it ask the parts person nicely for a printout showing of the location of the valve a picture is worth, well u know, It is connected to the Evaporative Emissions Canister, which is mounted on the passenger side of the gas tank just between the gas tank and the passenger side rear wheel

    One last note Honda calls this the "EVAP TWO WAY VACUUM VLAVE", THE CANNISTER PURGE VALVE IS DIFF AND IS LOCATED UNDER THE HOOD.

My car is a 2000 Honda accord, engine light came on checked gas cap,it was ok,shop checked it with machine and code P 1457 came up.What does it mean, & and how do i fix it?


P1457 90 EVAP Emission Control System Leak Detected (Control Canister System) Possible causes
- Missing Fuel cap
- Incorrect fuel filler cap used
- Fuel filler cap remains open or fails to close
- Foreign matter caught in fuel filler cap
It means that your fuel tank isn't airtight. It could be a crack in the filler pipe, a loose hose or even a blown gasket at the fuel gauge sender.
Your car does a vacuum check on the fuel system now and then. If it detects it's not air tight, it throws a code. Now, the gas capis the most common thing. But from the fuel filter to the filler neck something is not right. Look for a small gas leak, stick your head under the car and give it a whiff. see if you smell it, if you have a garage put sheets of news paper under your car over night and see if any leeks drip on it. There's other things but try those first.

P1457 honda light off but still reads code


The light on the dash, should do a bulb check when you first start the car. (bulb should illuminate for 3 seconds) after that the light will go out. then if there is a code in the computer it will come right back on . bulb could be burned out. a po 1457 is a evap code which is fumes or fuel vapores from the fuel tank .these fumes go through vacuum lines from the tank, back to the vacuum canister under the hood. then these vapors are purged to the engine to be burned with the fuel. you need to check all vacuum hoses going from the tank ,to the charcoal canister (vacuum canister) this is most cases about the size of a coffee can .around the front of the engine compartment. black plastic. with vacuum lines going to it. if there is a vacuum hose cracked, or off .it would cause a po 1457. service manual says- evaporative emissions ( evap) control system leakage (evap canister system) this problem is hard to repair eve for the skilled tech good luck

Code for radio/cd honda civic 2003


Try to locate the unique code number that will unlock the theft-protected audio system on your 2003 Honda Civic. It probably was imprinted on an anti-theft identification card that you should have received when you acquired the car. The code was printed on a document that came with your owner's manual packet

If you do not have the code, you will need to track down the audio system's serial number. In the case of the 2003 Honda Civic, finding the serial number may require seeking assistance from a Honda dealer. The dealer should be able to determine the audio system's special code number so you can reset the radio. With some newer Honda Civic models, the serial number can be retrieved electronically from the radio.

If you are able to locate the serial number of your 2003 Honda Civic's audio system without a dealer's assistance, you can obtain the special code by going online to the Honda Web site. You must first provide specific information to prove you own the car. For instance, you will need the Civic's vehicle identification number, or VIN, and the audio system's serial number.

When you know what the audio system's special code number is, use the preset buttons on the car radio to punch in the digits. This should reset the audio system, enabling you to resume using the radio and the CD player.

My 2000 honda civic engine light on code p1456


Hey I had the same code and I have a 2000 honda civic lx. My cousin works at honda and drives a '96 honda civic and he has had that code before on his car as well.

First thing he came up with was that the catalytic converter was cracked. We checked mines, and lo and behold, that's what it was.

Look under your hood, and there should be a catalytic converter with a sensor sticking out of it. It is connected to the exhaust manifold and the sensor sticks out of the heat shield. Around the sensor, look for a crack. If there's a crack, that's your problem.
