2006 lexus es330 track off VSC plus the engine light is on

The ES330 has a notoriously bad fuel cap problem. Notice that if you tighten the cap two clicks it will come off with one finger. They apparently have a different cap not just a new cap. It will cause the Check Eng light to come on but apparently may also affect the VSC because it affects engine performance. When the VSC light comes on it will also shut down Trac Control and turn on the light. Replace the fuel cap! Cheap first fix. If you need to clear codes when you get the cap at Autozone they'll scan it and clear codes.

Po456 check engine light on lexus es330

code p0456 refers to evaporative emission system--very small leak detected===causes --mechanical fault--hose connections--EVAP pressure sensor.
Mechanical fault could be as simple as the fuel cap is not on tight.

Chrysler p0456 code

Possible causes - Missing or loose fuel cap
- Incorrect fuel filler cap used
- Fuel filler cap remains open or fails to close
- Foreign matter caught in fuel filler cap
- Evaporative Emission (EVAP) canister or fuel tank leaks
- Evaporative Emission (EVAP) system hose leaking
- Fuel tank leaking
P0456 Chrysler Description The Evaporative emissions system is design to prevent the escape of fuel vapors from the fuel system. Leaks in the system, ca allow vapors to escape into the atmosphere. The leak detection system tests for EVAP system leaks and blockage. During the self-diagnostics, the Powertrain Control Module (PCM) first checks the Leak Detection Pump (LDP) for electrical and mechanical faults. If the first checks pass, the PCM then uses the LDP to seal the vent valve and pump air into the system to pressurize it. If a leak is present, the PCM will continue pumping the LDP to replace the air that leaks out. The PCM determines the size of the leak based on how fast/long it must pump the LDP as it tries to maintain pressure in the system.

The most common misfire causes on the cars I've worked on have been:
  1. Spark plugs
  2. Spark plug wires
  3. Ignition coil
  4. Fuel injector
  5. Wiring to fuel injector
  6. Timing Belt
  7. Vacuum leak or stuck open EGR
  8. Contaminated fuel or bad fuel pump
  9. Weak compression
  10. Blown head gasket

What's causing the P0456 code?

  • A small leak in any of the EVAP hoses or fuel tank hoses
  • A small leak in the purge valve or vent valve
  • The EVAP Canister may be leaking- be sure fuel cap is sealing good, if in doubt replace fuel cap.

How to turn off Check Engine light on 2004 Lexus ES330? Had Autozone hook up computer and it said the the gas cap was the problem. I tightened cap as much as possible but light still on.

Sometimes the light will stay on for 100-500 miles depending on the fault code. You can disconnect the battery to reset it, but you will have to reset the radio and other memory such as seats mirrors.
