Engine coolant temperature over 2. Code: P1447 System: Powertrain Covers functions that include engine, transmission and associated drivetrain accessories Category: Manufacturer The code definition is assigned by manufacturers according to their vehicle basic system differences, implementation differences, or diagnostic strategy differences. If you have any doubt as to repairs on your vehicle, please contact your technician. Can a faulty gas cap affect the flow to the canister, or is there some valve that controls it that might be bad? We have a large number of resources to help you repair the problem. Since I don't have a repair manual, I'm hoping someone out there can point me in the right direction, as I'm not very close to a dealer. When the alternator is failing it can be intermittent ok some times and then stops.
They will provide valuable info! Remember, these are manufacturer specific codes only. Please use the form on our Contact Page to get in touch with us. We do ask that you please read the info available on the site first so that we can help reduce repeat questions. The cap is part of the evaporative recovery system which is also what the canister is involved in. Here's the maddening thing: I think this issue started when I left the car with the body shop to fix the above mentioned boo boos. If you see less than 13 volts the alternator is not charging.
So I'd say yes, running out of gas could have had a role in this. You'll know sooner if the problem has actually been fixed. These are listed in numerical order for easy searching. When the alternator stops charging with the engine running the overall voltage of the electrical system cannot be handled by the battery and systems will start to shut down like the radio and wipers until the vehicle stalls. I'd bet they ran out of gas and then put in a couple of gallons to get back to the shop. Due to the amount of free content we provide, we cannot guarantee the accuracy of all information.
Finally got the car fixed, and it's perfect again. Normally it is not supposed to run. Thank you for using FixYa, have a nice day. Finally got the car fixed, and it's perfect again. Either way, I guess I'm destined for a trip to the dealer. My Service Engine Soon light came on, and I stopped by Auto Zone where they put a code reader on it and it displayed code P1447. The car runs perfectly, but I'd like to fix it rather than contribute to depleting the ozone layer.
Hello Bimmerheads, I purchased a second hand '01 e46 'vert about a year and a half ago with 96K miles. Did you discuss the 300 miles and no gas with the owner of the shop? Look up your code definition. Soapy water will help separate these hoses. Is pump too high an indication of a leak? I have a 2001 E46 325i with 32K miles. Tell the owner you're going to take his car for a 300 mile trip, run it out of gas and then put in just enough to allow him to limp to the gas station and see how he reacts. Searching around on the internet I found that this is apparently an incorrect flow to or from the evaporative canister, but the Auto Zone guy told me the code could vary some by manufacturer.
The list of automotive Makes at the right edge of the screen. It's still on; will that clear by itself, or do I need to have it cleared and then see if it comes back? If your are for a different car, select that vehicle series before searching for the diagnostic codes because not all used by one manufacture are used by the other makes. Some will clear on their own loose gas cap is one example , some don't or they take so long to clear it seems like they won't. Threaten a small claim suit. Since I took the whole assembly down, I decided to move on to replacing both units. This tells you where to start testing.
The location of the part certainly is suspect given the damage on the car. During Air Bag is not working. Here is how we suggest you proceed. Then a semi nearly ripped off the back bumper on the George Washington Bridge. I bought a used mirror on eBay and did the job myself, as you can see in the pix.
If there is a link to a specific diagnosis strategy for the code then follow that and start testing. However, we also don't know the voltage is operates with. If you are familiar with checking voltages, to check this with a volt meter, you would want to see 13 volts to 14. Also, to check yourself, when the problem is occuring you can use a volt meter to check the voltage at the jump terminal to see what the output of the alternator is. Followed your advice and replaced the pump myself, it was not difficult. The currently selected is for the Subaru makes. I actually almost ran out of gas trying to get to the gas station: the car was bucking and running poorly, and I really think I just made it in time to put some gas in.
It could very well have been damaged from the accident when you rear bumper was pulled off. It didn't, but I took your advice and I cleared the code, and so far it has not come back. The pump is mounted on the carbon canister, which is located at the rear of the car between the spare tire and battery compartment. Then a semi nearly ripped off the back bumper on the George Washington Bridge. Dealers love to scare you and overcharge you.
