There is no code P0544 , maybe you mean P0455 ?
The control module tests the evaporative emission (EVAP) system for a large leak. The control module monitors the fuel tank pressure (FTP) sensor signal to determine the EVAP system vacuum level. When the conditions for running are met, the control module commands the EVAP canister purge solenoid valve OPEN and the EVAP canister vent solenoid valve CLOSED . This allows engine vacuum to enter the EVAP system. At a calibrated time, or vacuum level, the control module commands the EVAP canister purge solenoid valve closed, sealing the system, and monitors the FTP sensor input in order to determine the EVAP system vacuum level. If the system is unable to achieve the calibrated vacuum level, or if the vacuum level decreases too rapidly, this DTC sets.

It's called EVAP purge solenoid , the front one . An your Mechanic is probably not full of it . You need to know how the system works . If the computer set's a code for that system , it will not test it again till it's fixed an sometime other problems come up . After he fixed the first problem he should have told you that after a day or two or a couple of key cycles , starting the car cold till warm an a cold start again , sitting over night , 8 hours . Then the computer will retest the system . An other codes may set . Before putting blame , you should have to read about OBD 2 emissions , before being able to have a vehicle .

Sensor would be inside the water tank. if you can't fix it, just ignore it.....as long as you know you have water in the tank.....

Best bet is to try to get a key cut at a dealer - take the vehicle to one and see what they can do..

My mechanic made a gizmo that he disabled the Anti Theft and left it so I don't have it any more.. That has to do with the chip on your key as well. See what happens if you try a different key if you have one.

Do you have a check engine light on? If not then you have a defective gage, the gage is a computer generated display and you will need to remove the instrument cluster and send it out to be rebuilt. Cost about $250
