    Default Cel code P0447 resolution

    Hello:

    Some time ago I posted about a stubborn CEL light code P0447. It has finally
    been resolved and it was a corroded solder in the wiring in the rear wheel
    well. Fixing this seems also to have solved a rough engine problem (though
    it might be too soon to tell...)

    P.S. I'd have posted to the original thread, but I'm having problems with
    free newsgroup server letting me go that far back...

    Anyway, after a long, expensive year with lots of problems, here's hoping
    things change for the better with my Subie!

    Sorry, I don't know. I think it was somewhere around right rear wheel well.
    I've seen some posts/info somewhere on the 'net that describes this issue
    with Subies - but I can't find the links at the moment.

    We have a P0446 code, which is similar to what you had. If I could
    find a manual for this car, I'd be much more comfortable messing
    around back there. But once I replace the knock sensor to fix the
    P0325 code, we'll get on the 446.....

    Hi,
    Wiring in the wheel well makes me to think ABS sensor.

    Hi:

    Here is one of the posts I had found that describes the situation. The
    service manager brought me a piece of wire coloured green with corrosion. He
    said something as well about separating wires as part of the repair. The
    engine has not exhibited any recurrance of roughness or stumbling since the
    repair was completed a few days ago, so that is good!

    Code 0447 has to do with the electric circuit for the drain valve part
    of evaporative system. This valve closes the atm. pressure line to the
    cannister for testing purposes.

    By the way, the service manager suggested this wiring issue might be the
    problem the first time I came in (the CEL had gone out on it's own, and they
    couldn't really do much on that visit), sooo I got the impression that this
    is not uncommon.

    I live in Ontario, Canada, and there is plenty of salt on the roads in
    winter...

    Good info. I was looking at the cannister yesterday afternoon, but not
    having a manual yet, was a little reluctant to pull it off. What a
    terrible design, there is an electrical connector directly in the path
    of water and crud thrown up by the right rear tire. Why would they put
    uncovered electrical wires there??!!
