My name is ***** ***** I am a professional here at Just Answer. I noticed that your question had not received 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.

That is odd to have the purge code set off this warning here as usually it wont cause this warning to set.If they did not check all computers for fault codes this needs done to see if any other computers have codes set like suspension computer or transmission ecu in some cases.If they did and this is the only code set it is possible the purge was stuck on or off and may have set off this warning here.The purge valve usually requires replacement when this code sets.

If more help is needed, use the reply tab to continue our conversation. If no further assistance is needed, kindly rate my service,your 5 star rating is appreciated.You can rate at any time and we can continue to work on your question as this will not close out your question.Keep in mind in some cases it can be difficult to fully diagnose or help repair your vehicle without seeing it and I work on delivering the best possible answer from what I see to work with.
