What is P0443


Hi there:

To cause a P0443, there has to be a problem with the purge control CIRCUIT, not necessarily the valve. Usually they are a unit housing the valve and the solenoid as an assembly. Or it could be comprised of a separate solenoid with vacuum lines to a purge valve. That said, it could be any of the following:
- Bad purge solenoid (internal short or open)
- Wiring harness chafing or rubbing another component causing short or open on control circuit
- Connector worn, broken or shorted due to water intrusion
- Driver circuit inside powertrain control module (PCM) is bad



About the possible solutions
1. Using a scan tool, command the purge solenoid to activate. Listen or feel for a clicking coming from the purge solenoid. It should click once, or on some models it may click repeatedly.

2. If it doesn't click with scan tool activation, unplug the connector and examing the solenoid and connector for damage, water, etc. Then check for battery voltage on the feed wire with the key on. If you have battery voltage, then ground the control side manually using a jumper wire and see if the valve clicks. If it does, then you know the solenoid is working properly but there is a problem with the control circuit. If it doesn't click when you manually ground it, replace the purge solenoid.

3. To check for a problem on the control circuit (if the solenoid tests okay and you have voltage to the solenoid) plug the solenoid back in and remove the control circuit (ground) wire from the ECM connector (If you're unsure how to do this, do not attempt). With the ground wire removed from the ECM, turn the key on and then manually ground the Purge valve control wire. The solenoid should click. If it does, then you know there is no problem with the control wire to the solenoid and there is a problem with the ECM purge solenoid driver circuit in the ECM. You'll need a new ECM. However if it doesn't click, then there must be an open in the wiring between the ECM and and the solenoid. You must find it and repair it.

Hope this helps; also keep in mind that your feedback is important and I`ll appreciate your time and consideration if you leave some testimonial comment about this answer.

Error code p0443 on ford windstar 2002


Hi there:DTC P0443 - Evaporative Emission Control System Purge Control Valve Circuit
The Evaporative Emissions System (EVAP) allows fumes from the gas tank to enter the engine to be burned, rather than vented into the atmosphere as an emission. The purge valve solenoid is supplied switched battery voltage. The ECM controls the valve by operating the ground circuit, opening the purge valve at specific times allowing these gasses to enter the engine. The ECM monitors the ground circuit as well, watching for faults. When the purge solenoid isn't activated, the ECM should see a high voltage on the ground circuit. When the solenoid is activated, the ECM should see the ground voltage pulled low, close to zero. If the ECM doesn't see these expected voltages, or senses an open in the circuit, this code is set.

P0443 trouble code symptoms could be just an malfunction indicator lamp (MIL) illumination. There may be no drivability problems at all. But, it's also possible to have a lean condition or a rough running engine if the purge valve is stuck open. Usually though, these symptoms are accompanied by other EVAP codes. Another symptom may be excessive pressure in the gas tank in the form of a "whooshing" sound when the cap is removed, indicating a purge valve that isn't working at all or stuck closed.

P0446 code


Locate the vent solenoid under the car (by charcoal canister) make sure you have power and good ground. Try manually actuating the solenoid several times while listening for clicks if it doesn't click or intermittently stops clicking replace the vent solenoid.

My 99 expedition shuts off when I put it in reverse and shuts down when I have to stop fast at a red light. I have codes p0443 and p0441 on. Someone please help


P0443 code, EVAP system control purge control valve circuit failure, p0441 is related to p0443. if you fix it, both codes should be gone! to fix p0443-- Using a scan tool, command the purge solenoid to activate. Listen or feel for a clicking coming from the purge solenoid, If it doesn't click with scan tool activation, unplug the connector and examing the solenoid and connector for damage, water, etc. Then check for battery voltage on the feed wire with the key on. If you have battery voltage, then ground the control side manually using a jumper wire and see if the valve clicks. If it does, then you know the solenoid is working properly but there is a problem with the control circuit. If it doesn't click when you manually ground it, replace the purge solenoid.

Have 5 codes coming up on my 2007 saturn vue v6 one is po498, po455(twice), and po442(twice). Do not know what po498 is and how to fix all. I believe it has something to do with evap canister solenoid, not...


Effectively it is a evaporator canister solenoid failure, Tis can be triggering the other codes. You need a scanner to test the solenoid so you can activate and deactivate the solenoid, if you hear the solenoid clicks then it's ok, but if it doesn't click, then you have a faulty solenoid and you need to replace it. It's an easy and inexpensive fix, if it doesn't click then just replace the solenoid, make sure you erase the codes with the scanner after you replace the solenoid. Ask your mechanic to test the solenoid first.
Attached there is a video of how to test and replace the evap canister solenoid in another car, but maybe it will give you or your mechanic an idea.

When my truck gets hot it doesn't want to start. Sometimes if you wiggle the key it will start, but when it doesn't start, it makes a clicking noise.


the clicking noise is most likely coming from the solenoid on the starter motor, the solenoid is like a big switch with contacts inside of it,when you turn the key to start the engine these contacts come together to transfer the power to the starter motor,if the solenoid can't be taken apart & the contacts cleaned or replaced it will have to be replaced.......hope this helps....cheers

My 2004 Kia Optima has a code P0443 and I know what it is. There's a hole where air is getting in and I need to know how to find it


Hi, 443 is not a leak--it a purge valve malfunction. Usually the solenoid packs up, but it could be wiring or the connector. You need to disconnect the valve and apply battery voltage to it to see if the solenoid will click. If it clicks, the problem is wiring. If not, replace the purge valve/solenoid. Please let me know if you have questions.

Po401 ive cleaned the egr & replaced the egr but i keep getting this code??


depending on your model, there may be a solenoid valve that turns the vacuum to the egr valve on. If the solenoid fails, the egr valve will not open. Follow the vacuum line on the egr valve--does it go to a solenoid valve? If yes, apply 12 volts directly to the solenoid blades to see if it clicks open. If it doesn't click, replace the solenoid.
