All 3 codes are related

code P0446 evaporative emission vent system performance

code P0452 fuel tank pressure sensor circuit - low voltage

code P0453 fuel tank pressure sensor circuit- high voltage

all codes are for the purge system the pressure sensor is inside the fuel tank is most likely the cause of all 3 codes.....good luck

DTC P0446 - Evaporative Emmission Control System Vent Control Circuit
Evap vent valve has only one purpose. It closes in order to seal the vent so the EVAP system can pressurize and ensure there are no leaks. Evap vent valve is usually supplied Batt. voltage with key on. The ECM's driver controls the ground, and when grounded, activates the valve (closing it). If the ECM detects a short to ground, and open,or a short to battery voltage on the control circuit, P0446 will set. Code also may refer to ECM detecting that EVAP system is unable to achieve or maintain vacuum during test. A code P0446 could mean one or more of the following has happened:

  • Faulty vent valve
  • Open, short or excessive resistance on Vent valve control circuit
  • Blockage of vent valve
  • Bad PCM
Possible Solutions
  • Replace Vent valve
  • Repair open, short, or resistance problem in control circuit
  • Repair open, or short, or resistance problem in power circuit
  • Replace PCM

DTC P0452 - Evaporative emission control system, pressure sensor low imput
DTC P0453 - Evaporative emission control system, pressure sensor high imput

The PCM monitors the EVAP control system FTP sensor input signal to the PCM. The test fails when the signal average jumps above a minimum allowable calibrated parameter. If both codes are present, it sounds like your fuel tank pressure sensor has failed.

The sensor is on top of the tank and you will have to remove the tank. But your symptoms are pointing to more than just the sensor. You may have wiring problems.

2001 Tahoe no check engine light. will not pass smog due to stored trouble codes. air valves , catalytic converter


you have to have the codes erased and then drive for a while, at least 100 miles and it should pass providing there are no other issues.

I have a 01 2.2 s10 had to replace o2 sensers light whent off but wont reset so i can pass emissions


It might take as long as two weeks to come back on. The onboard computer has to run diagnostics that include a preset number of manuvers. Just drive it as you normally would and in a little while the check engine light will probably come back on, unless you got it fixed and in that case you may not know when it resets.
