What does PO 455 code mean on a 2002 Chrysler Sebring?
Diagnostic Trouble Code (DTC) P0455 "EVAP LEAK MONITOR LARGE LEAK DETECTED"
This simply means that your Evaporative Emissions Leak Detector monitor has detected a large leak in your Evaporative Emissions (EVAP) system.
It is common for this code to set if you refuel your vehicle with the engine running, forget to put the fuel cap back on after refueling, or do not properly install or tighten the fuel cap after refueling. In these cases, it can be fixed by simply installing the cap properly and clearing the code. Also, make sure your engine is turned off when refueling so it dos not happen again.
If none of the above is the cause of this code, then you either have a large leak in one of the hoses, connections, or the fuel tank itself, or the EVAP leak detection pump is defective.
