If servicing separately, refer to the following:

 

The ESIM switch (2) is located on the Evap canister (1) The picture displays a typical Evap Canister and a typical ESIM switch. graphic

graphic

2.

Disconnect electrical connector at switch.

 

3.

Clean any dirt from ESIM switch and its lines.




4.

A lock tab (see arrow) is used on the back of the switch. Push lock tab towards switch while rotating switch counterclockwise 1/4 turn for removal.

 

5.

The fresh air lines and hoses from the ESIM must have a clear opening to the atmosphere. Check the fresh air lines, including the fresh air filter, for obstructions or restrictions at the ESIM. Also check the routing to the exit to atmosphere. If a restriction is present, the system will not allow free flow passage of clean air, and an early shut off of the fuel fill nozzle may occur during fuel fill.
