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?

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.
