My name is XXXXX XXXXX I am a professional here at Just Answer/Pearl. I noticed that your question was not getting a response and thought I would see if you still need help with this.I apologize for the delay and I hope I can still assist you with this here.

Is this the emissions evap vent valve you are looking for here on this vehicle?

Let me know so we can continue,thanks Pete.
Customer: replied 9 months ago.

It's the tank vent valve I was looking for, I heard it was near the throttle body but I don't see it, and also I had a couple battery sensor codes as well.

Expert:  Pete replied 9 months ago.
Are there any other fault code numbers set besides this code number as this code number isn't coming up in my list of codes on this model?

Let me know,thanks Pete
Customer: replied 9 months ago.

I have battery sensor code 299B,C,D. And 29A8, And 29AE and 2772. It says vent valve activation for the code 2772.

Customer: replied 9 months ago.


Also could you let me know where the tank breather valve is located. Thanks.

Expert:  Pete replied 9 months ago.
O.k.,for code 2772 this code will indicate a fault with the EVAP purge valve.

My info is limited on this model and finding this valve location seems to be difficult.The info I did locate is it should be located behind the power steering fluid tank attached to the engine itself.It should have a couple of vent hoses attached to it and an electrical connector.

You may have to remove the engine air filter assembly and the power steering tank to locate it.

Unfortunately my info doesn't list the other codes you have here for the battery sensor.

Thanks Pete

Expert:  Pete replied 9 months ago.

Expert:  Pete replied 9 months ago.
O.k.,this info HERE does show this on the drivers side.My info isn't the clearest on this valve and everywhere I check it looks like this is a difficult valve to locate.But looking at this valve you should be able to open the hood and locate it compared to how it looks in this picture.



Thanks Pete
Customer: replied 9 months ago.


I'll check it, put that's a different motor. mine is not in the front right there, not sure where it is.

Expert:  Pete replied 9 months ago.
O.k.,let me know if you can locate it as well if you need anything else here.

Thanks Pete
Customer: replied 9 months ago.

Do you see anything like the pictures posted above under the hood by the brake booster,firewall or on the intake.It should have hoses and an electrical connector attached to it.

Yeah, it has these plastic clamps on there that are hard to get off, look like they twist and pull

Expert:  Pete replied 9 months ago.
Is there any way you can take a picture of these and upload them here using the tree or paper clip icon so I can see if I can tell how they are released?

Let me know,thanks Pete
Customer: replied 9 months ago.

plug

Expert:  Pete replied 9 months ago.
O.k.,if it is the clips that hold the pipes to the valve itself if you look where the clips have ridges or lines on it squeeze this and the bottom one on this clip to open up the clip and pull the hose off while holding squeezed.

Thanks Pete

Pretty much solved the problem except for those battery sensor codes, can't seem to find any info on them.

Customer: replied 9 months ago.

Do you have any info on those?
Expert:  Pete replied 9 months ago.
Unfortunately my info doesn't list the battery sensor codes so I don't have any diagnostic steps to follow for those codes.You can open a new question HERE on those codes to see if anyone else here has info on them.

Thanks Pete
