It sounds to me like you just have a bad fuel tank pressure sensor. I would check for 5 volts to this FTP sensor and be sure it has a good ground. Also, be sure that the voltage on the fuel tank pressure sensor signal wire is moving or fluctuating like it is supposed to when blowing air into the fuel tank. If you cannot get to this sensor to test this, you can do all of your testing right at the computer.

where is this sensor located?
Expert:  AMEDEE replied 6 years ago.
Right on top of the fuel tank sending unit. You will need to drop the fuel tank at least a few inches in order to get to or replace this sensor. That is why i would recommend to do all of your testing at the computer before you drop the tank. You only want to drop the tank if you need to. This will make it easier on you.

we have a snap on verus, we can perform these tests with this?

YEs.. you should be able to read the fuel tank pressure voltage in the live data with the key on.
