    this is a chart for you.
    DTC P0449

    Circuit Description

    A battery positive is supplied to the evaporative emission (EVAP) canister vent solenoid valve. The control module grounds the EVAP canister vent solenoid valve control circuit to close the valve by means of an internal switch called a driver. The scan tool displays the commanded state of the EVAP canister vent solenoid valve as ON or OFF. The control module monitors the status of the driver. If the control module detects an incorrect voltage for the commanded state of the driver, this DTC sets.




    The table illustrates the relationship between the ON and OFF states, and the OPEN or CLOSED states of the EVAP canister vent solenoid valve.

    DTC Descriptor

    This diagnostic procedure supports the following DTC:

    DTC P0449 Evaporative Emission (EVAP) vent Solenoid Control Circuit

    Conditions for Running the DTC

    The engine speed is more than 400 RPM .
    The system voltage is between 10-18 volts .
    DTC P0449 runs continuously once the above conditions are met.
    Conditions for Setting the DTC

    The control module detects that the commanded state of the driver and the actual state of the control circuit do not match.
    The above conditions are present for a minimum of 5 seconds .
    Action Taken When the DTC Sets

    The control module illuminates the malfunction indicator lamp (MIL) on the second consecutive ignition cycle that the diagnostic runs and fails.
    The control module records the operating conditions at the time the diagnostic fails. The first time the diagnostic fails, the control module stores this information in the Failure Records. If the diagnostic reports a failure on the second consecutive ignition cycle, the control module records the operating conditions at the time of the failure. The control module writes the operating conditions to the Freeze Frame and updates the Failure Records.
    Conditions for Clearing the MIL/DTC

    The control module turns OFF the malfunction indicator lamp (MIL) after 3 consecutive ignition cycles that the diagnostic runs and does not fail.
    A current DTC, Last Test Failed, clears when the diagnostic runs and passes.
    A history DTC clears after 40 consecutive warm-up cycles, if no failures are reported by this or any other emission related diagnostic.
    Clear the MIL and the DTC with a scan tool.
    Test Description

    Step 1 - Step 10



    Step 11 - Step 15



    The numbers below refer to the step numbers on the diagnostic table.

    Listen for a click when the valve operates. Verify that both the ON and the OFF states are commanded.
    This step verifies that the control module is providing ground to the EVAP canister vent solenoid valve.
    This step tests if the EVAP canister vent solenoid valve control circuit is grounded.
