Q: Battery malfunctioning

asked by on

My car is getting two error codes: P0455 and P0341. When I start my car, I get a battery malfunction light.

P0341 is a camshaft position sensor error code while P0455 indicates a large evaporative emissions leak, such as a failed gas tank cap seal. These are likely not related to the battery malfunction. Have a mechanic, like the ones at YourMechanic, inspect the fault codes and test the vehicle’s starting and charging systems.
