I have a es300 with a 0446 code and I am told I need a vacuum switch. Where is the vaccum switch located? I have ordered the part (without the canister) and I hope I can figure out which switch it is. ...

There is a chance the problem is something other than the switch you have ordered.
Below is the explanation for the code. You may have a leak somewhere in the EVAP system.

The Evaporative System (EVAP) canister vent control valve is located on the EVAP canister and is used to seal the canister vent.

This solenoid valve responds to signals from the Engine Control Module (ECM). When the ECM sends an ON signal, the coil in the solenoid valve is energized. A plunger will then move to seal the canister vent. The ability to seal the vent is necessary for the on board diagnosis of other evaporative emission control system components. This solenoid valve is used only for diagnosis, and usually remains opened.

Transmission overdrive failure

Good chance there is a problem with the wiring to the OD solenoid or the OD solenoid itself. The solenoid is located at the top of the tranny, on driver side. Unplug the solenoid and put + 12-volt to it, if you hear it click in and out give it a test drive with your rigged wiring, if she goes in to OD then you know the tranny / solenoid are good but problem with OD relay, switch or heat sensor. Push come to shove you can just rewire it to a new switch and be done with it (that's what I ended up doing)

Please let me know if this assisted you.

Have code p2716 pressure control d, will need help


Before you start looking at replacing solenoids, here is something that you need to know:

Toyota has a technical service bulletin regarding this issue.

Changing the solenoids will NOT rectify your situation. Replacing the ECU in the car is what you need to do. The logic/programming is the problem, not the solenoids.

The good news is this: The ECU is covered, under the factory warranty! It will be replaced for free, if your car has less than 80,000 miles on it.

If you have more miles than 80K, call the Toyota Customer Experience Center at 800-331-4331; an analyst may be able to help offset your costs; they do this quite frequently.

This should get you fixed up. Thanks for visiting FixYa!

How do you change a chevrolet trailblazer transmission solenoid?

If you have to ask I would not recommend doing it. Its located inside the trans and there is a shift solenoid for every gear so you need to know which one has failed and if it s tranny issue or could be your ecu (which also controls the shifting). So have it diagnossed before repairing so you can perform the correct repair.

Shift solenoid relay.. internal or external?

Trans model is the 4L60E,and the shift solenoids are mounted on the valve body,just inside the bottom pan.There are 2 shift solenoids,one EPC solenoid (Electronic Pressure Control)One TCC PWM solenoid (Torque Convertor Clutch,Pulse Width Modulated),one 3-2 kickdown solenoid,and a manifold pressure switch.As far as a shift solenoid relay switch,i have never heard of that.The power for the transmission solenoids comes through the ignition switch ,and uses a fuse,not a relay.Accessing the solenoids only requires dropping the bottom pan,and the valve body does not have to be removed,to change the solenoids.The shift solenoids are the TWO solenoids right side by side and look identical..They are the only two solenoids inside the pan that are in fact identical.Good luck.
