Hi! Welcome to JustAnswer. Thanks for coming! I'm Ron and I'll be working with you on your question today.

Do you happen to have access to a scan-tool that can interact with EVAP system components?

No don't think so

Cadillac Mechanic: Ron Z., - Cadillac Tech - replied 11 months ago

Ok. More commonly with the P0446 is a faulty EVAP Vent Solenoid or Fuel Tank Pressure Sensor. Unfortunately, the test to determine which is faulty requires a scan-tool. In my experience though, P0446 is more commonly the Vent Solenoid. So, this may be the better place to start. The Vent Solenoid is located on the driver's side frame rail. Inspect the electrical connector and wire harness for any loose, broken or damaged wires. Inspect the lines for any cracks, holes or disconnections. If the inspection checks ok, I'd recommend replacing the Vent Solenoid. For an image location view, click here: https://goo.gl/wV9xdQ

That is what I have replaced already
Cadillac Mechanic: Ron Z., - Cadillac Tech - replied 11 months ago

Ok. Above you stated the EVAP Canister. Did you replace both?

Cadillac Mechanic: Ron Z., - Cadillac Tech - replied 11 months ago

Ok. Then the Fuel Tank Pressure Sensor is the next item that can set this code. It's located at the top of the fuel tank, mounted to the top of the fuel pump assembly.

do you have a pic diagram?
Cadillac Mechanic: Ron Z., - Cadillac Tech - replied 11 months ago

Unfortunately, I do not. It has a 3-wire connector going to it; black, dark green and grey. To gain access, the fuel tank will need to be lowered.

That don't do me any good
Cadillac Mechanic: Ron Z., - Cadillac Tech - replied 11 months ago

You can't miss it. It's mounted to the top of the fuel pump assembly. I can give you a picture of the sensor here: https://goo.gl/j52lVu
