SOURCE: Dodge Neon code 1494
p1494 isnt for the purge solenoid it is for a mechanical switch failure detected in the leak detection pump. as long as the pump has vacuum going to it the likely cause is the pump itself. it is attached to the vapor canister

You will need to remove the right front wheel & wheel well liner. The canister purge valve is behind the cover. It should have two tube going into the bottom and one on the side near the top.
You can fix it!
If this helps you out please rate me!

Here is what I could find for your code error as potential causes:
After market parts and accessories nonconforming to the EVAP system specifications.
Damaged, missing or improperly installed fuel filler cap.
Blockage in fuel vapor hoses/tubes (EVAP canister tube, EVAP canister purge outlet tube or EVAP return tube) in EVAP system.
Disconnected or cracked fuel vapor hoses/tubes in EVAP system.
EVAP canister purge valve stuck closed.
Canister vent (CV) solenoid stuck open.
Fuel tank pressure (FTP) sensor malfunction.
EVAP canister leaking.
Fuel vapor control valve tube assembly blocked.
Fuel vapor vent valve assembly blocked.
Obviously the gas cap would be the easiest and cheapest thing to fix. Just make sure it is put on correctly and tight. If it is not that, I would have to suggest to take it to a mechanic because the other problems on that list are not really DIY material. Hopefully it is the gas cap and you can take care of it yourself. Good luck.

The evap vent valve is locate behind the left rear tire,You will need to remove the tire and the plastic covers, the vent valve is located on the top of the filler pipe, filler pipe is the pipe in which you fill your gas tank.
the valve sits atop the pipe near the top, i will enclose a diagram picture to help you locate it. you can also test valve with a battery when you remove it. the valve should allow you to blow air through it and then when power is applied to valve it should close and no air should flow through it.hope this is helpful. good day.
