Re: Hours of searching. no answers. Help please.
So I just replaced the clutch in my car, completely removed the engine to do this and everything seems to be fine... other then an engine light on, and my e-brake light will not go out. I'm not too concerned about the engine light right now (P0444- purge control valve open circuit) but the e-brake light is really irritating me..
I own a 2007 Tiburon GT 6spd, I didn't touch anything in the braking system other then remove the master cylinder fluid level sensor, I was having my driver side rear caliper hanging up prior to the clutch install so this could have been a problem before the clutch swap. My question is, what could fail to cause this light to come on? What are the chances of the connector to fail for the master cylinder, the wiring looks undisturbed.
I'm guessing your brake light is on because you either damaged the fluid sensor when removing it or installed it incorrectly or something silly like low brake fluid. The purge control valve cel is likely because you forgot to plug in the purge solenoid (2 prong plug), first time I swapped motors I forgot this two just follow the hose from the tb. I don't think the plugs are close enough, but a theory could be you got the brake sensor plugged in the evap and vice versa (can't remember if they are the same plug or not as I have never needed to mess with the brake master cylinder.)
