my check engine light came on about a week ago (fyi there is a fuse that can just be pulled to turn off check engine light #52 if like me you find annoying till the problem is fixed) it read p0443 purge control valve 3 times. i changed the part and cleared light, however on second start the light is back on with 3 same codes. look at the valve and see one of the connector wires broke from the connector. has anyone had this happen and what to do about it?

Just dealt with this and making a post in case anyone stumbles across it.
Had the P0443 DTC for a bit and replaced the purge control valve. Cleared the check engine light but it came back on with the same code. After looking on the internet for hours, trying a few diy troubleshoot tips from youtube, I came across a couple posts about broken electrical connector wires. Decided to check one last time before taking it to the mechanic and sure enough the frigging wire popped off when I gave it a little jiggle. (had taken the connector off at least a half-a-dozen times while trying to figure things out, but the wire never came loose... so check them and don't just give them a look) Now that I found out what was wrong, trying to get a frigging replacement connector/harness seemed all but impossible. (more internet hours wasted) Finally just snipped the non-broken wire and removed the connector for a good look. This is the part you might be looking for but you will need to buy terminals and seals also.
Bosch 1928405522
Terminals 1928498059
Seals 1928300599
Only site I could find to order them from was Chief Enterprises
(forum would not allow me to add a link, sorry. Just do a search)
Cost was about $22 with shipping and will take a little diy to assemble/repair (I plan on doing some soldering just to make sure)
Hope this helps someone else save their time/frustration dealing with this problem.
