Default New Fault Code - P0443

I got all my O2 sensors replaced, and now I am down to the last code before I can get that CEL off!!

P0443 seems to be the Evap control valve solenoid, and I wondered if this is the part I need.

Thanks

Hey I appreciate it!

I bought this truck used, and it just needs some basic maint. items. I replaced all 3 of the O2 sensors, and now if I can get this one last piece replaced, she will be good to go

Its a clean truck! A 96 150 Eddie Bauer with a 5spd. And those 300's will run FOREVER if you maintain them, I just don't get how people aren't willing to put in the little amount of time to maintain their vehicles!

I replaced the part this afternoon, pulled the negative cable for a few mins, drove a few mins(light was off) then, half way back to my apt, the check engine light came back on. Autozone said I need to drive ~100 miles before they scan it again, as scanning it right now does no good

Will the CEL go off on its own? I was under the impression when u dump the computer like that, the computer should pick up the new part...

Ideas??

Find yourself a local shop that has a scanner and have them delete the code for you, then run and recheck it. Auto Zone won't delete the codes, usually.

its a 96 EB F150 L6..will the scanner work fine with that old of a scanner?

And is this a scanner I can pickup at autozone, or is this some special scanner that can delete codes? My old roomate works at his family's car lot, and I know they have scanners there.

All cars built since January 1, 1996 have OBD-II systems. So...unless your truck was one of the late 1995 models, you should have it. And even then, since it's a 96 model you should have the plug. As for the scanner, as long as it's got a handful of buttons on it so it will do more then just display the error, one of the options that comes up is usually to delete/remove the code. The one my friend bought from Auto Zone was 60 bucks and does everything we need.

A generic OBD2 scanner should clear the code. Most OBD2 codes will not clear just by unhooking the battery.
