Chevrolet Tahoe 4x4: I have a 1996 chevy Tahoe. A few years

Customer Question

I have a 1996 chevy Tahoe. A few years ago I got a P1441 code. I have replaced the purge solenoid and the charcoal canister but still get the P1441 code. I keep clearing it with a scantool but it keeps coming back. I have also changed the gas cap. No luck. The hoses appear to be good. What else could it be. I'm tired of having to clear the code

What scan tool can I use to operate the EVAP solenoid. All I have is a reader. I have an OBD Link but need an inexpensive software that works with it and allows me to operate the solenoid. I may also need it to operate the ABS in the future so if there you can recommend a good inexpensive one that works with the ABS, and one without, that would help.
