Re: Engine code 565- Canister purge circuit failure?
The terms are synonymous and you only have 1. It takes several minutes for the KAM to die, but it doesn't matter where the circuit is broken - positive or negative. The reason they ALWAYS say to pull the negative is that a wrench on the positve that accidentally touches the body will throw sparks & could explode the battery - a wrench on the negative won't do anything.
If they recommend killing the KAM, try it. The only reason not to is that it will have to re-learn the adaptive strategy, but if they say that's necessary, go for it.
The other sensors & stuff I was referring to would be injector(s), fuel pressure regulator, MAP, ECT, ACT, IAC, EGR EVP, KS, TPS - pretty much everything the computer uses to either detect or control how the engine runs, with extra attention on things pertaining to fuel mixture.
