The code P0449 indicates a problem with the vent sol.being either stuck on or off.
This is usually caused by road dirt getting into the vent sol. due to it's mounting location above the fuel tank.
You have options, one is just simply replace the vent sol. the other and the correct repair is to install a kit and a filter to the vent sol.
Dirt and dust intrusion into the EVAP canister vent hose assembly, resulting in restricted air flow, may cause about the illumination of the instrument panel SES light, with a DTC of P0446 (Restricted/Blocked EVAP Vent Path).

SOURCE: I just bought a remote and I need to program it in an 06 chevy eq

Up to 4 transmitters can be programmed. Do not operate or program the transmitters in the vicinity of other vehicles that are in the keyless entry program mode. This prevents the programming of the transmitters to the incorrect vehicle. The order in which the transmitters are programmed is important. The first transmitter programmed will be transmitter #1, and the second transmitter programmed will be transmitter #2. Use care to program the transmitters correctly.

  1. Install a scan tool.
  2. Turn ON the ignition with the engine OFF.
  3. Select Body Control Module.
  4. Select Special Functions.
  5. Select Program Key Fobs.
  6. If you are adding a transmitter to the system, or are replacing a transmitter, choose the Add/Replace Key Fobs option. This allows new transmitters to be added without deleting those currently programmed to the module. If you are replacing all transmitters or none of the transmitters are working, choose the Clear memory and Program All Fobs option. This prevents lost or stolen transmitters from being used to access the vehicle.
  7. Follow the scan tool on-screen directions.
  8. After programming the last transmitter, remove the scan tool.
  9. Exit the vehicle. Attempt to lock/unlock the doors to verify the programming.
  10. Operate the transmitter functions in order to verify correct system operation.
  11. if you don't have a scan tool then you can go to a lock smith they can do it cheaper than the dealer sometime.

Error code p062b 2012 equinox


Had the same problem on our 2012 Equinox today. Threw codes P026B and P062F. Appears to be a bad battery. Replaced battery and all seems ok now...keeping fingers crossed. My suspicion is that the faulty, dying battery caused a low voltage situation in the injector control module and thus those errors. Will see if the check engine light returns in the next 48 hours.

2008 chevy cobalt engine light on


Your Po449 code means: Evaporative Emission (EVAP) Vent Solenoid Control Circuit. Check to see if anything on you EVAP system has gotten disconnected and make sure that none of your hoses have gotten old and bridle or have holes. If everything looks ok, you probably have to replaced the Vent Solenoid Valve, which is located on the EVAP canister.
