May I have the "p-code" that led you to replace the canister?

Customer: replied 6 months ago.
449 and 449pd now it's only 449pd
Expert:  Ron Z. replied 6 months ago.

Ok. Great. Give me a minute to load in your vehicle and grab some info. Be right back...

Expert:  Ron Z. replied 6 months ago.

Ok. The P0449 is a fairly straight forward code pointing to a problem with the EVAP Canister Vent Valve. It's located on the fuel filler neck (click here for image view: https://goo.gl/zMSVta). Carefully inspect the rubber lines for any cracks, holes or disconnections. Inspect the electrical connector and wire harness for any loose, broken or damaged wires. If the inspections check ok, replace the Canister Vent Solenoid. If you found this answer helpful, please help me by leaving a rating using the "stars" at the top of the page or click 'accept'.

I replaced it and checked everything and it's not working
Expert:  Ron Z. replied 6 months ago.

Ok. We'll need to test the circuit. Do you have access to a test lamp?

Customer: replied 6 months ago.
No
Expert:  Ron Z. replied 6 months ago.

Ok. If the vent valve is not working, then the next step is to check the circuit. If you do not have access to a test lamp, then a careful inspection of the electrical connector and wire harness must be done. Look for any broken, damaged, rubbed-through wires.

It's secure no loose wires
