P1494 Leak Detection Pump Switch or Mechanical Fault
Part of the early evaporative emission system. (Fuel tank fumes)
It’s there to allow the computer to run an integrity test of the fuel tank, lines and carbon canister’s ability to contain all of the fumes coming from the tank and all line associated with the system.
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.

PO442 means you have a small leak in your EVAP system. Most common cause is a bad gas cap, replace the gas cap with a factory gas cap,after market fail or does not conform to the OEM EVAP system. Other cause would be small leaks in the EVAP vacuum lines. P0445 is also related to the EVAP system and has detected a large leak in the system. Start with the gas cap as mentioned above. P1685 Is an issue with the ignition not recognizing the ignition keys and the car's ignition immobilizer my activate leaving the car not being able to start. That's going to have to be a Dealer repair. Good luck and hope this helps.
