2003 VUE 3.0L
Default P2176 code after fueling.

I have a 2003 Vue V6 and recently it started throwing this code shortly after fueling. The engine performance does not seem to be affected. I can clear this code and it does not come back until the next fuel up. A check of other posts on this code does not show any link to fueling or opening gas cap.
Anybody have some ideas?

REWARD EXCELLENCE!

Default Re: P2176 code after fueling.

It may be coincidence to have this error code turn up right after refueling. The error code is related to the drive by wire system - electric throttle, electronic pedal and engine computer.

Was the throttle body ever cleaned?

The engine control module (ECM) controls the throttle blades by applying a varying voltage to the throttle valve motor. The ECM monitors the actual throttle blade position using throttle position (TP) sensor 1 and 2. If the ECM cannot detect the minimum throttle position, DTC P2176 sets.

REWARD EXCELLENCE!
