That is a fault code for the evaporative emissions system. Often, it is just a loose or faulty gas cap, or it may be a leak in one of the hoses in that system. Check the gas cap, and if it's okay, then start checking the associated hoses for leaks.

What deos Code p1477

According to the Ford OBD code list for your car, it is "Additional Fan Relay Circuit Malfunction." I would check the fan relay and all connections to it. If you can't find anything there, then I would guess it's probably a wiring issue somewhere.

04 dodge caravan 3.3 coolant fans not working with AC on with code p1477

There is a sensor in the radiator that reads the coolant temperature. When the temperature rises to a predefined temperature the sensor will turn the fan or fans on. This sensor is usually on the side tanks on your radiator and screws into the tank. A relatively inexpensive part. These sensors corrode and fail with time.

P1477 reed switch not open- changed gas cap last week 2000 328ci

Im going throught this problem also P1477 code on my E46/99 bmw 328i, also dont forget to check all the vacume lines, it is very common on this car that the hoses they use go rotten very quick, along with the intake tubes or elbows, i found massive holes on my mine also many vacume lines damaged, i still have the 1477 code, but ive seen various post were people swapped the fuel breather valve, i checked all the canister tours the rear of the vehicle, they all seemed fine , no broken lines, everything is tight but the fuel breather valve its only between 80 to 100$, compare to the 350$ canister... go figure, and its fixed quite a few cars, so ill give it try, wipe the codes, and hope it doesnt come back, good luck....

My 04 freelander is showing codes p1133, p1472, p0304, p1471, p1477, p1775, p1319, p300 and p0050. along with this my vehical has very limited torque and throtal responce through out the entire power band.

When you get that many codes and the drivability issues as well,you most likely have a single item pulling down the computer,so to speak.
You need, as you have done, list what the codes are,possible fixes,based on a trouble chart ,you won't have.
Then you need to do three things.
Have a complete vehicle wiring schematic.
Check what does work
Use logic, and do a few tests of suspected areas, if you don't get what you should,you enter the schematic and work your way back to find out why.

In your case,a very good diagnostic repair shop will be what you want.
