Question about 2004 Ford Ranger

1 Answer

2004 ford ranger 2.3 would crank but doesnt start

I got a code which is b1318 that says low voltage to the instrument cluster I did troubleshooting to the injectors but #1 stays open but if I unplugg all injectors it would start and shut off but when all injectors are in thevtruck would crank but not start I vchnged the crank and cam sensors and changed the pcm but still wouldn't start

Our 2007 Ford Freestyle 3.0V6 shows B1318 code, also scanner shows low battery voltage module. Car shuts off.Please help what to do to fix?


Which module ?

B1318 Battery Voltage Low Audio Control Module REFER to Section 414-00 . B1318 Battery Voltage Low DSM REFER to Section 414-00 . B1318 Battery Voltage Low DVD Player REFER to Section 414-00 . B1318 Battery Voltage Low Instrument Cluster REFER to Section 414-00 . B1318 Battery Voltage Low RCM REFER to Section 414-00 . B1318 Battery Voltage Low Satellite Radio Receiver REFER to Section 414-00 . B1318 Battery Voltage Low SJB REFER to Section 414-00 .
According to this charging system isn't working correctly ! This is a computer controlled charging system .
Principles of Operation
The powertrain control module (PCM) controlled charging system determines the optimal voltage setpoint for the charging system and communicates this information to the voltage regulator. This system is unique in that it has 2 unidirectional communication lines between the PCM and the generator/regulator. Both of these communication lines are pulse-width modulated (PWM). The generator communication (GEN COM) line communicates the desired setpoint from the PCM to the voltage regulator. The generator monitor (GEN MON) line communicates the generator load and error conditions to the PCM. The third pin on the voltage regulator, the A circuit pin, is a dedicated battery voltage sense line.
The charging system voltage is controlled by the PCM. The generator charges the battery and at the same time supplies power for all of the electrical loads that are required. The battery is more effectively charged with a higher voltage when the battery is cold and a lower voltage when the battery is warm. The PCM is able to adjust the charging voltage according to the battery temperature by using a signal from the intake air temperature (IAT) sensor. This means the voltage setpoint is calculated by the PCM and communicated to the regulator by a communication link.
The PCM simultaneously controls and monitors the output of the generator. When the current consumption is high or the battery is discharged (the PCM recognizes this and increases the output of the generator to accommodate), the system is also able to increase the idle speed to increase the charge.
To minimize the engine drag when starting the engine, the PCM does not allow the generator to produce any output until the engine has started. The PCM then progressively increases the output of the generator.
The PCM turns the charging system warning indicator off after the engine is started and illuminates it under fault conditions (when the generator is not generating the correct amount of current with the engine running). The charging system warning indicator is also illuminated by the PCM whenever the key is ON with the engine OFF.
This is a System 4 charging system, which uses the GEN MON and GEN COM lines to control and monitor the charging system through the PCM. System 4 charging systems are virtually identical in design and therefore, share the same diagnostics. The circuit numbers and colors may be different, but the functions are the same.

Code b1318 2001 ford ranger edge 3.0. What would cause this code


my book says b1318 code is "low battery voltage at module" this is a self test the engine control computer (ECC) does to measure the power comming to it that runs it. it means voltage at module has been less than 11 volts , try unhooking battery cable for like an hour , also good time to clean your battery terminals (BOTH OF THEM) reconncet battery OBSERVE polarity Very important (red to+) this should reset fault rescan after driving a few miles if code persists then you;ll have to look farther for a bad /dirty power connection around battery and assoc items

THESE ARE POSSIBLE CAUSES TO YOUR PROBLEM. CLASS 2 CIRCUIT IS OPEN SHORTED TO GROUND OR TO B+. THE PCM IGNITION POWER CIRCUITS HAS A HIGH RESISTANCE CONDITION. THE PCM MAIN GROUND CIRCUITS HAS A HIGH RESISTANCE CONDITION. THE SDM MODULE COULD BE SHORTED PULLING THE VOLTAGE LOW. THIS MORE LIKELY DEALERSHIP FIX.

Trying to locate electrical junction to test fuel level sensor


Fuel Level Indication System The fuel level indication system is a magnetic gauge system. It consists of a magnetic fuel gauge (9280) mounted in the instrument cluster (10849) and a sending unit located in the fuel tank (9002) with an instrument cluster gauge amplifier (10E849) in series between the two. No instrument voltage regulator is used with this system. Fuel Gauge
The magnetic gauge movement consists of three primary coils, one of which is wound at a 90-degree angle to the other two. The coils form a magnetic field which varies in direction according to the variable resistance of the sender unit which is connected between two of them. A primary magnet, to which a shaft and pointer are attached, rotates to align to this primary field, resulting in pointer position. The bobbin/coil assembly is pressed into a metal housing which has two holes for dial mounting. There is no adjustment, calibration or maintenance required for these gauges. The instrument cluster amplifier is calibrated to the fuel gauge. The instrument cluster amplifier and fuel gauge must be replaced as a system. Instrument Cluster Gauge Amplifier/Check Gauge Module
The instrument cluster gauge amplifier electrically averages fuel sender readings so the fuel gauge displays actual fuel level and not fluctuations due to sloshing in fuel tank. The instrument cluster gauge amplifier is a small printed circuit board which latches into a pocket on the back of the instrument cluster. The electrical connections for ignition, ground, input from fuel sender and output to fuel gauge are made through a spring-type connector on the instrument cluster gauge amplifier to the instrument cluster printed circuit (10K843) on the instrument cluster. There are no provisions for calibration or adjustment of the instrument cluster gauge amplifier.
Fuel Sending Unit
The fuel sending unit consists of a variable screened resistor made up of a ceramic substrate. It is controlled by the action of an attached float in the fuel tank. When the fuel level is low, resistance in the sending unit is low. When the fuel level is high, the resistance in the sending unit is high. As the float moves from empty to full, the resistance will gradually and continuously increase. f9e3b50.gif

Ford mustang gt 2005 dtc codes


B1318 are related to low battery voltage .
B1202 is fuel sender circuit open.
P0463 is fuel level sensor circuit, (high input.)
If your gauge appears to be working o.k. all I would do for now is double check my voltage at battery with engine off & running, to make sure all is good there, erase codes & start fresh. The cheap way to erase is to remove neg (-) cable form battery for about 5 min., or more & then reconnect. You eill lose your memory on radio stations & have to re-set them though, otherwise have someone hook-up scan tool to erase them. Is vehicle starting & running o.k. at this time?
