    Many thanks for "emissionwiz" for quickly answer. I have to ask under Wolkswagen 'cos there have no choice for Opel/Vauxhall cars.
    I have just one more question: where do you find the explanation for this code? Is this a secret code? What I find as ECU error codes, there I fund nothing between P1503 and P1530.

the P1693 is a companion code ,not a big deal as for not starting are you getting fuel to the injectors prime your filter and try this
I'm going to point out to everyone there is NO WAY to have just a P1693 code present during error code dumping. Yes the P1693 is a companion code and has no really meaning but...

"This code indicates there is more code present in the other computer" So if the P1693 is in the P PCU that means there is more codes present in the P ECU. So if there is a P1693 in the P ECU that means there is more codes present in the P PCU. Then even in rare cases seeing the P1693 code in both computers pointing out that both computers have codes. But there is NO WAY for the P1693 to be the only codes present during error code dump. It's totally impossible!

The reason I'm posting this is because it seem like everyone is cancelling out at the first P DONE thinking its done. WRONG! There is TWO computers in the truck .

P PCU = Powertrain Controller Unit (Passenger side firewall)
P ECU = Engine Controller Unit (Driver side of engine block)

You should always see both P PCU and P ECU displayed and 2 P DONE's in the display. If you want to see a video of this and how to properly do it please reffer to my web site and watch the video I produced so you can give us acurrate information on your problems your having with your truck.As worded by my Cummins certified friend., try site too ,

I bought a 97 Toyota camry with a bad motor an a good motor came with it I installed it the car will nt start unless u jump the starter relay an when u put it in neutral the car dies every time u start it...

can you supply the engine numbers. engines can be the same from some years but the electrics can be of a different type 97 is on borderline when they changed the ecu and sensors. your ecu would read everything as normal but will not start. if you swap over the sensors from the old engine to the new engine it should work after this. as long as no sensor problems are on the old engine. check the part numbers and change the ones that are a different number to you old engine. there will be a few the same but most will have changed there number like cam crank and maf and prob knock sensors

I need the reason for the ecu error codes for a 2001 firebird 3.8L code #01 P0601,#02 P0606,#3 P1518

P0601 means your engine computer has an internal error; P0606 means that the engine computer has stored in memory exactly the running condition( much like a "black box") that the vehicle was in when the P0606 was triggered. P1518 also relates to the PCM in the matter of low voltage.

Try testing the battery as improper voltage can cause all of these codes. Otherwise it means that your PCM has failed and either needs to be reprogrammed or replaced.
