|What Does the P0443 2009 NISSAN SENTRA Code Mean?

This system controls the flow rate of fuel vapor from the EVAP canister. The opening of the vapor by-pass passage in the EVAP canister purge volume control solenoid valve changes to control the flow rate. The EVAP canister purge volume control solenoid valve repeats ON/OFF operation according to the signal sent from the Engine Control Module (ECM). The opening of the valve varies for optimum engine control. The optimum value stored in the ECM is determined by considering various engine conditions. When the engine is operating, the flow rate of fuel vapor from the EVAP canister is regulated as the airflow changes.
The EVAP canister purge volume control solenoid valve uses an ON/OFF duty to control the flow rate of fuel vapor from the EVAP canister. The EVAP canister purge volume control solenoid valve is moved by ON/OFF pulses from the ECM. The longer the ON pulse, the greater the amount of fuel vapor that will flow through the valve.
The Diagnostic Trouble Code (DTC) will set when the canister purge flow is detected during the specified driving conditions, even when the EVAP canister purge volume control solenoid valve is completely closed.
