P0456 code!!

My check engine light came on today :/ I ran the code and it seems to be with the Evap control system. I will look at it tomorrow, has anyone gotten this code before and what did you do to fix it? Besides just pulling the battery to reset it :P thanks guys

Try tightening the fuel cap.

Yup that's the first thing I tried but the code didn't erase... The Hanes manual said to check the Evap emission hoses and canister itself so that's the first thing tomorrow

After you tightened the cap did you clear the code? I would have replaced the gas cap, cleared the code and ran it through it's drive cycles. If it throws another code I would suggest to smoke your evap system to find the leak. It's the easiest way, any shop can do it for you.

How would I clear the code? Sorry I'm new to my Jeep so I am still understanding her! How would I do that at a shop? Thanks

You can clear the code with a scan tool, otherwise disconnect the battery for a few minutes and that will reset the computer.

That won't affect anything when I go for my emissions test? I'm from Texas that's why I ask.

I had the same code reading large and medium evaporation emissions leak. I looked around the engine and found two badly cracked vacuum hoses I replaced those and it fixed my problem! The hoses were on the driver side under the Hood one connecting to that black box on the side and one below the vent cylinder shaped thing. If you go to my profile look at my started threads and find one that says P0455 code evap leak and I have pics of the hoses

If you reset the computer you will have to drive about 50 miles for it to complete it's drive cycles before it will be ready to pass an emissions test.

Ok so unplug negative terminal on battery and drive 50 miles before my emissions test?

Did you have them clear the codes. The will do it for free. Or stop by my house I have a code reader and can clear it for you.
