Charged AC, now Check Engine came on.

Post by Mrittinger » Sun Oct 14, 2018 3:46 pm

07 Freestyle sel.
Charged ac to correct level. Had to move an item out of the way to get at low side nipple.
Now CE light came on. Running fine, AC cold.
I suspect moving this item caused CE light to come on. What is circled item? ( pic not of freestyle, but same item)
Thank you.

Besides the electrical connector, I remember it has some rubber hoses connected to it. I was pretty rough with mine, moving it out of my way once it was off the bracket. Didnt feel like the rubber hoses connected to it were fragile.

If you moved the CPV out of the way, and didnt reconnect the electrical connector while running the engine to charge the A/C, that might throw a code. I would reset the code and see if it comes back and see if CEL goes out.
