    Have engine check light and this code comes up when scanned

    I have checked the bulb, and the horn comes on when I hit the lock button, but I still can't seem to arm it. I bought it from a Dodge dealer and they used it as a certacy vehicle.

My 2001 town and country mini vans check engine light won't go out. It was tested at auto zone for a gas cap problem. I bought a new gas cap and drove over 50 miles now and the light is still on.

    My 01 caravan has same problem. Key dance showed 0455 and 0442. DIY smoke test (idea from youtube) had smoke pouring out around gas cap. Replaced gas cap, smoke retest showed leak in filler neck:( So much for my $89 savings for a smoke test!

You need to have a smoke test done to see exactly where the leak is. The cost should be aroung eighty dollars. I am sure the leak is in the fuel filler neck.

I had the same problem, tried the gas cap, didn't work. Have someone check your filler neck had a rust hole, that was my problem. I had a hard time finding one used and in good shape here in NS. It is very common around here.

Is your gas cap tight? check it, these codes indicate a large leak in the fuel evaporative emission recovery system at the gas tank

Check engine light stays on


There could be many reasons your check engine light turns on. The light means that the computer in the vehicle detected a fault or problem with a part or system such as when low air flow is noticed. You can buy a code reader at a local parts store that will tell you what the codes mean, or some vehicles can tell you what code it is using a flashing light much like Morse code.

Go to your local parts store,(Advance Auto, Napa, Autozone) and get the codes read for free and they can help somewhat of what the code means. If they can't tell you what the code means tell us what the code is and we can help from there.

I just bought a 2006 dodge grand caravan with 66,000 miles on it and the check-engine light came on!!! It seems to still drive fine but I am not sure what this is caused from!!!


Take it to Advance Auto Parts, or Auto Zone, they will scan your computer for free to get the code and tell you what it means. May just be a sensor, or the gas cap isn't tight (emissions) may or may not be serious. Thanks.

I would take the vehicle to your local autozone and have the codes checked and that can tell you with a lot more accuracy what the issue is.

Engine check warning light


Take the vehicle to your local auto parts store and have them read the check engine light code for you and then you can bring that back here and someone will be able to help you figure out what is going on. Just because you can't tell what it is right now doesn't mean that something isn't going bad very soon. Let us know. Thanks for using FixYa!

Check Engine Light


sounds like you have a code for evap leak detected. thats why you have been told to change the gas cap. this means you have a vapour leak in your systam. check all line and hoses to and from gas tank for leak. the filler hose and lines may be leaking. good luck please rate this.
