SOURCE: antilock brake system control module malfunction

I agree on getting it fixed. The system can also apply brake pressure to one or more wheels at any time.

Crank and cam sensor replaced . cars starts and run but still reads code 335 . cranksensor circuit malfunction. and idea whats the issue why this code is still coming up.?

the sensor may be good its the circuit code which means can be a wiring /connection problem not just the sensor the following link is courtesy of obd-codes.comP0335 - Crankshaft Position Sensor A Circuit Malfunction OBD-II Trouble Code Technical Description Crankshaft Position Sensor A Circuit Malfunction What does that mean? The crankshaft position sensor (CKP) measures crankshaft location and relays this information to the PCM (Powertrain Control Module). Depending on the vehicle, the PCM uses this crankshaft position information to time the spark properly or on some systems it is only for misfire detection and does not control spark timing. The CKP sensor is stationary and works in harmony with a reluctor ring (or toothed ring) that is attached to the crankshaft. As this reluctor ring passes in front of the CKP sensor, the magnetic field created by the CKP sensor is interrupted and this creates a square wave voltage signal that the PCM interprets as crankshaft position. If the PCM detects that there are no crankshaft pulses or if it sees a problem with the pulses on the output circuit, P0335 will set. Symptoms NOTE: If the crank sensor is used only for misfire detection and NOT spark timing (this varies with the vehicle), the vehicle should start and run with MIL (Malfunction indicator lamp) illumination. Also, some vehicles require several key cycles to illuminate the MIL. If this is the case, there may be no MIL illumination until the problem often enough over time. If the crank sensor is used for BOTH misfire detection and spark timing, the vehicle may or may not start. Symptoms may include: Vehicle may not start (see above) Vehicle may run rough or misfire MIL illumination Causes A P0335 "check engine light" code could be caused by: Damaged CKP sensor connector Damaged reluctor ring (missing teeth or not turning due to sheared-off keyway) Sensor output open Sensor output shorted to ground Sensor output shorted to voltage Failed crank sensor Broken timing belt Failed PCM Possible Solutions Using a scan tool, check if, when engine is running or cranking, that there is an RPM signal. If there is no RPM reading, then visually inspect the crank sensor and connector for any damage and repair as necessary. If there is no visible damage, and you have access to a scope, you could check the CKP 5 Volt square wave pattern. If you do not, then, obtain a resistance reading of your crank sensor from a repair manual. (There are so many different types of crank sensors that there's no way to put here which resistance reading is correct). Then check the resistance of the CKP sensor by disconnecting the sensor and measuring resistance of the sensor. (It is best to check resistance readings from the PCM connector. This rules out any wiring problems from the start. But it does require some mechanical skill and shouldn't be performed if you\'re not familiar with automobile electrical systems). Is the sensor within resistance specs? If not, replace the CKP sensor. If so, recheck resistance reading from the PCM connector. Is the reading still okay? If not, repair open or short in the wiring to the crank sensor and re-check. If the reading is okay, the problem is intermittent or the PCM may be at fault. Try reconnecting and checking for RPM signal again. If there is now an RPM signal, wiggle test the wiring harness to try and induce the fault. This code is basically identical to P0385. This code P0335 refers to Crankshaft Posistion Sensor "A", whereas P0385 refers to Crankshaft Position Sensor "B". Other crank sensor codes include P0016, P0017, P0018, P0019, P0335, P0336, P0337, P0338, P0339, P0385, P0386, P0387, P0388, and P0389.

I have a 2000 Corvette and the Check Engine light came on, power was decreased and it said check Active Handling System...what does this mean and what kind of problems does it create?

Have the codes checked. There are to many possibilities for your car to list. Repost with the codes. Kind of problems it creates is lost power and handling.

What does mil cmd fail mean?

MIL is your malfunction indicator lamp, (check engine light)

CMD is the computer interface port, or OBDII port indicating a malfunction communicating with your cars computer

check all the fuses, primarily any marked pcm and retest your vehicle
note: your check engine or MIL has to be on in KOEO state (key on engine off), if the bulb is burned out everything will still work and the OBDII test computer will show MIL status ON, and if you don't have a computer to tell you that, you must get that light to light in the koeo state.

Code p1659

ok , you scanned or Autozoned it, if latter?, fail you do.
did they write it down wrong?
the code must be told accurately, (im sure you know that)

this code needs honda only meanings, P1
Electronic Throttle Control System Control Relay Off Malfunction
blown 7.5a fuse #15?
baring a simple fuse.
read the FSM./
the FSM covers this code, what to do and to find which part is
bad , not guessing, the ECU cant tell you what part is bad or dirty.
it only tells you what tests failed.
read the FSM or take the car to any ASE certified Mechanic.
this car is Throttle by wire. technology. (a pain , the TSB proves it.)

ever heard of a TSB? all good mech read them first
here is one example, on topic. too.
quote: (look up you car, and YOUR TSBs, read them all)

MIL Comes On With DTC P1659 TSB 05-008
In cold temperatures, the MIL comes on with DTC P1659 (electronic throttle control system control relay OFF malfunction). PROBABLE CAUSE Moisture inside the throttle control relay may freeze. This would cause the relay to fail, storing DIG P1659 along with any of these DTCs: P0135: Rear Air Fuel Ratio (A/F) Sensor (Bank 1, Sensor 1) Circuit Malfunction, P0141: Rear Secondary Heated Oxygen Sensor (Secondary HO2S, Bank 1, Sensor 2) Heater Circuit Malfunction, P0155: Front Air Fuel Ratio (A/F) Sensor (Bank 2, Sensor 1) Heater Circuit Malfunction, P0161: Front Secondary Heated Oxygen Sensor (Secondary H025, Bank 2, Sensor 2) Heater Circuit Malfunction, P0498: Evaporative Emission (EVAP) Canister Vent Shut Valve Control Circuit Low Voltage. CORRECTIVE ACTION Replace the electronic throttle control relay, the air/fuel sensor relay, and the starter cut relay.

Computer code P0650


Malfunction Indicator Lamp (MIL) Control Circuit Output drive moduels (ODM's) are used by the powertrain control module (PCM) to turn on many of the current-driven devices that are needed to control various engine and transaxle functions. Each ODM is capable of controlling up to 7 separate outputs by applying ground to the device whish the PCM is commanding ON. Unlike quad diver modules (QDM's) used in prior model years, ODM's have the capability of diagnosing each output circuit individually. DTC P0650 set indicates an impropervoltage level on the output circuit that control the MIL.

What is code p0650 and what is mil control system

P0650 - Malfunction Indicator Lamp Control Circuit Malfunction

Possible causes- Harness or connectors for the MIL circuit is open or shorted. Check connectors to instrument cluster.
- MIL bulb may be faulty, check this first.
- Faulty ECM. Very rare that this is the problem.
