After stage 1 fails, the 50 sample test results are used by stage 2. Assuming the first item is the most common issue. In later car models, the car's computer can usually keep the vehicle running, but the engine warning light on the dashboard goes on to warn the driver. You can certainly try the front O2 sensor. There does exsist a service dept advisory informing dealers of this Onstar battery issue. The Fuel Tank Pressure Sensor parameter should be less than 1.
This determines the catalysts ability to convert exhaust emissions effectively. So you should chech it on our car models. Engineers call this a power contribution. Click the reputation button near the bottom left corner of this message box. If you have OnStar push the button when the Service Stabilitrak light is on have them run a diagnostic.
If it comes back again I will replace the valve all together. For example if a P0442 is usually a loose, missing, or bad seal on a Gas Cap. All the other ones have nothing to do with your code. Exhaust leaks--Look at the exhaust, check for holes or leaks. Fuel tank vapors are allowed to move from the fuel tank, due to pressure in the tank, through the v P0496 code. When this value goes above 0 mV indicating stage 1 has failed, the stage 2 test will start to be used in determining the efficiency.
Or bad wiring to the pressure sensor. Each time a cylinder fires, it generates a power pulse. Saturn Outlook P0496 if your catalytic convertor fails completely, you eventually won't be able to keep the car running. If there are no intake leaks, the next step is to replace the air filter and clean the air flow meter. You could also go to AutoZone and rent a hand vacuum pump hook the hose to one of the nipples of the solenoid and pump the hand pump to pull a vacuum. The Fuel Tank Pressure Sensor parameter should be less than 1.
What is the exact code number you have not code description? Rate the quality of this post and help lgodave reputation points. Important A catalyst monitor test will not be performed if a fault exists in the rear or front oxygen sensor circuits. Check to make sure that the converter is not damaged. Repair Instructions: Perform the Diagnostic Repair Verification after completing the diagnostic procedure. If it is loud you have a leak. I wish it was that easy, lol. Re-read the full article you copied from and see how it wants you to perform the test s.
That alone should raise a red flag and something is fishy. To monitor these contributions, the computer looks at the crankshaft position sensor and correlates the acceleration speed of the crankshaft in relation to each spark plug fire. Long story short everyone should at least try and do their own Troubleshooting and Repairs whenever possible. Basicly the light will go off on it's own if what ever turned it on does not happen again. Did that with my Wiper Transmission Linkage. I suspect that you will need to replace something before this will happen.
So I put it back in. Each contribution accelerates engine rotation. Tech notes If the P0171 is combined with the P0174 code, it's very likely that the problem is caused by an intake leak. Agree, will start with something easy first and most likely to break down. All I want you to do is unhook the two hose from the number two call out then blow air with your mouth through the solenoid.
If the problem persists the front oxygen O2 sensor may need to be replaced. Assuming this Solenoid open and closes very frequently during operation and the car being 5 years old, I will go a head and change the part myself. The code sets to let you know there is a problem with that circuit or system etc, of that part of the car. If so glad it all worked out. You will still need to get the code erased though.

As I said my first post most often this code is caused by a bad converter but there is a chance that it may be a bad O2 sensor or exhaust leaking. Here is what I have so far for ya. Your gas mileage will also be terrible, so you should try and fix it as soon as you can. The only number we care about is number two, that is your canister purge solenoid that turns the vacuum from the engine on and off from the engine to the gas tank. If I screwed up they said they'd be fine installing it for me no problem. But what if the sensor is providing false information? I posted a diagram of where the canister purge solenoid is its figure 2.
