    If the computer has not been cleared of the original codes by using a code scanner; that may be all that is needed, and that can be done by anyone who has a code scanner with code clearing capabilities. But if the codes were already cleared; then the computer should be reflashed, and the dealer is one place where that can be done. It also can be done by any shop that deals with fuel injection and computer problems, and has the equipment to reflash your computer.

    Sometimes disconnecting the battery causes the computer to lose its programming. I would have the computer flashed (reprogrammed). The other common cause of evap codes is a gas cap that is not adequately tightened, or one on which the seal is worn and leaking.

    I am not hetting a code for a vapor leak, so I don't think it is the gas cap. The replacement of the cracked hose took care of that. Does the dealer have to reset the computer?
