Let's start at the beginning. 
You have a Yaesu FT-400 XDR. and I'm not familiar with this, so I'll
find an on line manual.
I see this is a mobile rig, and has a GPS built in.
We aren't pushing our PTT to send out on 145.175, we are doing this in
an automated way when mobile (Keep your hands on the wheel). 
Checks you need to do are
Your callsign is entered
The GPS has a signal.
You can transmit (antenna etc all in order)

I found an APRS guide for your radio 

If you start working through that guide it seems to be well set out.
When you get to a point where you are stuck, just call back here.
