How do I reset the
put park brake on, turn ignition key to on position (no start) turn parklights off and on 4 times quickly (horn should sound twice). If you have or can get a TPMS activation reset tool great. Starting at drivers front, then passenger front, then passenger rear, then drivers rear. if you do not have a reset tool then you can try following method. Take valve caps off of all tires, start at drivers front tire (front left) let out 2 to 3 psi of air, about 5 seconds (TPS will detect this) wait about 10 to 15 seconds for horn to sound proceed to passenger front (front right) and repeat process, proceed to passenger rear and repeat process, proceed to drivers rear and repeat process. If horn does not sound than you will have to turn ignition key off and start over. You may have to re-inflate tires, it took me 2 days of @#$&^# around to get this method to work first time. God help you if a sensor is bad or missing.

Trouble shooting p0496 code on 2006 chevy colorado 3.5 where to start
H there, from what i get....
When trouble code P0496 is set, it means that there is an issue with the purge flow in the EVAP system.
The EVAP system is a closed system that captures fuel tank vapors and prevents them from escaping into the atmosphere. When your engine light comes on because of a weakness or failure in this system, you most likely won't notice the car driving any differently
Id suggest you see a mechanic and see if its safe to just reset the system or if the issue needs to be addressed but according to what I'm reading its more of an environmental hazard than anything not really any harm to you or the car. good luck
To be sure and find exactly what to do consult and expert The EVAP system is a closed system that captures fuel tank vapors and prevents them from escaping into the atmosphere.
