what is the error? no signal, probably..
Indeed, follow the blue pipe, on a 1.6-2.0 this leads to a metal silver pipe behind the engine, which leads to the actual, small canister purge valve (renamed evaporation control valve in new FES version.. even more obscure) that is under the throttle control unit under the motor ECU. There is a 2-pin plug that controls the valve.
This is very hard to access and you might squeeze your hand to unplug it but its a big job to change it, to me at least! BTW I got a "no signal" error that cannot be cleared if the engine is running.
I checked the power to the valve, 12V and ~7V, trigger the valve via FES; the power changed to 12V and ~0V; Seems OK AFAIK if I remember correctly, another normal car had the same voltages . I also tried changing the valve, plugging another valve with my connector. I still got the same error! I then tried to ground the metal parts of the valve, like where the screws are, to the (-) of the battery and it fixed it. Even removing the cable, the error didn't come back (until later while driving I guess....)
So strange issue. Need expert advice ; I'll keep working on the electric aspect...
