P1494 is the diagnostic code. How do I fix this? I know it's the leak detection pump or sw or mechanical fault. What do I need to do to fix this? We have a 2001 jeep grand cherokee laredo. The check engine light come on and we took it to auto zone they said it was P1494 the leak detection pump.
Autozone are parts salesman not techs. Codes never identify bad part, just failed systems. I will give you the flow chart for this code.
