OBDII code 0452

1998 GMC sierra 4.3 vortec 267000mi.
for the last three weeks trouble code 0452 has been popping out.
I was told to replace the gas cap and see if that solved the problem.
I relaced it and it didn`t do any good. Does anyone no what couses this
code and how to fix it.

Check the wires between the pcm and the fuel tank pressure sensor.At the sensor with it disconnected (key on) you should have ground on the black wire and 5 volts on the gray wire.Do you have access to a scan tool?

P0452 could also mean

Fuel Tank Pressure Sensor Circuit Low Input

depending on the car

Long shot guess fuel pump.

Don't replace the relay or the pump it will not help a thing.Check the gray wire for 5 volts (key on) to a known good ground.Then let us know what you find.

Tell us some symptoms

Do you hear the fuel pump working (buzzing sound) when turn on the key.

Do you get fuel near the hood. (smell)

Do spark plug test to see if it's working.

The only symptom of a P0452 is the SERVICE ENGINE SOON light being on.It is a code for an electrical circuit malfunction in the EVAP diagnostic system.The truck will run fine forever with that code.

Best idea is to get certified mechanic to look at it before GMC break down.

Let us know what the solution was to low input.

Thank you for your help guys, Davo was right.
I traced the wire and found that in passed somebody had probed 5 wires
of the wire harness near the fuel filter and didn`t seal it back up. Being in Michigan, guess the salt worked its way in and corroded trhe wires.I cut the wires to where they were clean and added a new one. That solved my problem. Thanks again Davo.
