The MIL comes on with one or more of these evaporative DTCs stored: P0451 (FTP sensor circuit range/performance problem); P0452 (FTP sensor circuit low voltage); P0453 (FTP sensor circuit high voltage); P1454 (FTP sensor circuit range/performance problem).

Diagnosis:

The FTP (fuel tank pressure) sensor has an internal malfunction. Replace the fuel tank pressure sensor.

1. Connect the HDS to the DLC (data link connector).figure 1

2. Remove the fuel fill cap.

3. Turn the ignition switch to the On (II) position.

4. Select the PGM-FI data list, and observe the fuel tank pressure sensor voltage.
• If the FTP sensor voltage is between 2.46V and 2.56V, run the evaporative function test and follow normal troubleshooting. This service bulletin does not apply:
• If the FTP sensor voltage is not between 2.46V and 2.56V, go to Repair Procedure.

Repair Procedure:

1. Remove the EVAP canister.
• Refer to page 11-217 of the 2002-’04 CR-V service manual, or
• Online, enter keyword EVAP, then select EVAP Canister Replacement from the list.
