CAUTION: The canister vent solenoid must not be energized for more than nine minutes at one time. Once the canister vent solenoid is energized and de-energized, adequate time must be allowed for the component to cool adequately. Failure to allow the component to cool may create a false failure in the diagnostics, causing unnecessary repairs.

2. If PID monitors are not active, select PIDs.

3. Select the fuel tank pressure (FTP) and the volts (V) parameter identification (PID) for monitoring.
