Default P1446 & P2408 codes

Additive had reached minimum level and fault was displayed on centre console.

I've topped up additive.

A local Veh electrician was asked to sort outout aircon and also to clear additive fault.

Aircon was done ok but he was unable to clear additive fault - asked him back and still couldn't clear it even though I showed him a guide how to do it. Ie re-set counters and follow the convelouted procedure to clear the fault etc..

He has still not cleared the additive low fault on the console but his reader and software shows the above codes: (in the title)

I presume P1446 is low additive (on a 307 - I believe it varies according to model which is why I mentioned the air con)
P2408 is faulty fuel cap sensor.

I've checked fuel cap sensor and get around 1.001KOhms and around 15ohms fuel cap on and off respectively.

Q's

1. Can someone confirm the reading for the fuel cap sensor around 1.001Kohms is out of range? I believe it's supposed to be 150KOhm and 15ohms.

2. Presuming P1446 is low additive: Will the fault fuel cap sensor stop him clearing P1446 fault code?

He does not have PP2000 but another software package but he was not forthcoming what it was even when I pushed him. Can you only clear this fault with PP2000??

Thanks for that. I'll get it sorted correctly after the fuel cap has been sorted.

Can you help with the fuel cap range readings? Can you confirm fuel can sensor is faulty?

Ok thanks. Local guy wants to come back and try again after fuel cap sensor replaced. I can't see the fuel cap sensor fault stopping the fault codes being cleared...

Just a quick update. It definately was a faulty fuel cap sensor. It was out of range.

New one fitted 140KOhm and 14+ohm

That's that one sorted....

Just a final update.

The low diesel additive fault has cleared after fitting new fuel cap sensor. I noticed it had gone after refueled. So the guy did manage to re-set it it but obviously the fault won't clear until the fuel cap sensor was replaced.

All happy now. Next when I get some time next "projects" :

1. Clean the DPF
2. Replace noisy cam belt tensioner and belt.

Thanks

Yes I know. It's not that bad at the moment but it is a priority and unusually at the moment the car is not getting that much use.

I've not done a cam belt before but I am fairly confident. As with anything I've never done. I usually spend time before hand making sure I've got all the information and matierial. Double check the information and then approach the problem slowly.

I've got an aquaintance who has done many and I'm going to approach him to help me with my first.

The car's due a service in about 1500miles so I'll do everything while the belly panel is off.
I'll let you know how I get on
