My van has a P1494 code. It means leak detection pump switch or mechanical fault, per the FSM. Possible causes: (1) cracked, blocked, or disconnected hoses; (2) wiring issues; (3) leak detection pump itself.

In the event that the pump needs to be replaced, is it a good idea to pick up one from the yard? A brand new one, albeit after market, is quite expensive. It chalks up to about $100. And if picking up one from the yard, is there any way to test it?

I searched, but did not find any answer to the question. Many thanks in advance for your info!

I wouldn't go with a used pump. You can get a pump assembly for less than $100. Eventhough they're not perfect, it's better than an unknown used one.
RockAuto would be the place to go. They have two choices there for the 3rd gen. After tax and shipping, though, it would be $100, if not more.
