Dode what happened with the dealer? Did you go to them so they can try to fix the problem or what? (referring to dieseling problem)

2x, you took it there for some wiring or whatever it was, then you get dieseling, you take it there to get the dieseling fixed, now you have this problem. Seems like some one at that dealership is screwing you.

"P1494 (M) Leak Detection Pump Sw or Mechanical Incorrect input state detected for the Leak Detection Fault Pump (LDP) pressure switch" is the actual 1494 error code.

The code could be set for a number of reasons such as a faulty gas cap, cracked vacuum lines, solenoids & vent valves stuck to the pump itself. It can be a very difficult fault to cure being it doesn’t take a very big leak anywhere in the system to set the code and that’s if it’s a leak and not an electrical or mechanical fault.

Start with the easiest, look at your fuel cap. Is the gasket good? Buy a new one, clean where it seats well, put it on making sure it clicks at least 3 times, and see if that solves it. If not you will have to start looking at hoses for hairline cracks. And yes, although it's rare, sometimes the canister itself gets a crack and needs to be replaced. It will be a dealer only item of course.

i know certain cars will stall after resetting the computer/ecu.. you need to gas it for about 2-3 minutes so the ecu will register.

I don't know if TJs are this way specifically, but I know a lot of GMs fuel injected stuff needs time to learn to idle after the battery has been disconnected. From past experience, I've also found that gunk in the throttle body can aggravate the whole situation with it's ability to learn correctly. Maybe try cleaning the throttle body and disconnecting the battery for a reset.
