I've been lurking here and the hybrid forums for awhile now doing research before buying my first C-Max. I finally did it! Bought a 2014 Hybrid SEL two weeks ago with 121k miles on it for $7.6k. It's currently displaying the P24BE code. The dealer I bought it from didn't have enough time to diagnose the issue (I arrived within a hour after they received it from auction) so they agreed to take $400 off the price because of that. The description for this DTC code is "EVAP System Leak Detection Pump Vacuum Switching Valve Control Circuit Low." They had never seen this exact code before in the previous C-Max's they sold. It's a hard code that can't be cleared.
I am having a lot of trouble finding any kind of information online about what this code could mean for the C-Max. I searched high and low on these forums too. I appear to be the first one asking about this specific code. Can anyone help me begin diagnosing where I should go from here?
I look forward to being part of the C-Max (and hybrid) community!
P.S. I also posted this on the hybrid forum two weeks ago and haven't received any responses yet so that's why I'm also posting here.
