Code P0441 is a standard code under the on-board diagnostic parameter ID (OBD-II PID) system, a diagnostic reporting system required in most passenger vehicles sold in the U.S. since 1996. When a vehicle's on-board computer identifies a problem, it logs the appropriate OBD-II PID code and illuminates the check engine light.
