SOURCE: 97 taurus flunked DEQ

the cam sensor is located to the back of the engine (meaning to the right end of the engine where the transmission is bolted to it) P0340 most commonly is the sensor and what they call the syncronizer you will have to replace them both but be aware that this code can be caused by a wiring concern or a pcm concern,to replace the cam sensor/syncro you will need to make sure the engine is timed properly othewise the code will come right back,they make a timing tool that really should be used when doing this but I have done them in the past with out it and never had a problem.As for the p0430 it means your catalytic converter has went bad and will also need replaced as I recall there are 3 cats on this car p0430 means bank 2 which is the one on the front of the car but I reccommend to replace them all at once because as soon as you get the one replaced the others will start acting up.One other thing do not let someone sell you sensors for them as this will not fix the concern.

SOURCE: 2002 Hyundai Sonata code reads P0430 what does this mean Catalyst System Efficiency Below Threshold (Bank 2)

That's a pretty RELIABLE code!... You have a bad CAT (Catalytic Converter). Trust it to be accurate. The conditions which set this code is when the Upstream O2 sensor's data/signal is compared to the Downstream sensor's data/signal... when they are nearly identical, that's when this code is set (unless you have an exhaust leak).. If there is an exhaust leak.. repair it, then retest/recheck.

SOURCE: Check Engine Light ON

What codes come on? P0420

The converter's only purpose is to reduce emissions from the engine, in rare cases the converter can disintegrate which could result in a loss of power but this is not very common,

This means that you're Cat needs repair or replacement, You're car will not pass legally smoged without fixing this. :

Good luck

SOURCE: won't stay running upon starting in the morning

sounds like a vacuum leak is causing the problem. consider this. idle bypass valve can be going bad or is bad.

if the engine is getting weak fuel pressure you should see a fuel light come on when this occurs. indicating improper pressure, witch the car running quickly tap the gas pedal.

now dose the problem happen in only cold weather so far? or also hot?

if not then your fuel pressure regulator is faulty.

i suspect the fuel pressure regulator myself but this is a procedure to help you determine it.

Having problems with climate control. Temp setting does not come back on to the last setting it always comes back on at 75. Also when pushing the front defrost it doesn't blow air.


You may want to have it check for DTC'S diagnostic trouble codes . A code may point to the problem , these HVAC systems are very complex .
DTC B0248, B0268, B0408, B0418, B0428, or B3531
The HVAC door actuator is an electronic motor with a feedback potentiometer. The HVAC control module supplies power and ground to the actuator. The HVAC control module controls the direction of the actuator by changing the polarity of the control circuit. When the actuator reaches the desired position, voltage is removed from the control circuit. The HVAC control module determines the current position of the actuator by monitoring the feedback voltage of the door position signal circuit. The feedback potentiometer position is a function of the actuator position.

What do codes P0411, P1000


P1000 code means the codes were cleared or the battery was disconnected
Powertrain Control Module (PCM) Reset Description All OBDII scan tools support the powertrain control module (PCM) reset.
The PCM Reset allows the scan tool to command the PCM to clear all emission-related diagnostic information. When resetting the PCM, a DTC P1000 will be stored in the PCM until all the OBD II system monitors or components have been tested to satisfy a drive cycle, without any other faults occurring. For more information about a drive cycle, refer to Drive Cycles .
The following events occur when a PCM reset is performed:
  • Clears the number of Diagnostic Trouble Codes (DTCs).
  • Clears the DTCs.
  • Clears the freeze frame data.
  • Clears diagnostic monitoring test results.
  • Resets status of the OBD II system monitors.
  • Sets DTC P1000.

I have a 02 malibu throwing code po403 egr flow circuit malfunction i have replaced the egr sensor and checked that the intake tube that feeds the egr valve and it is not clogged. I don't know what to do...


Read this it might helpCIRCUIT DESCRIPTION
The powertrain control module (PCM) monitors the exhaust gas recirculation (EGR) valve pintle position input to ensure that the valve responds properly to commands from the PCM. The linear EGR valve is controlled by using an ignition positive driver and ground circuit within the PCM. The driver has the ability to detect an electrical malfunction in the ignition positive or ground circuit. If an electrical malfunction occurs, the driver signals the PCM to set this DTC.

CONDITIONS FOR RUNNING THE DTC
^ The engine is cranking or running.
^ System voltage between 9-18 volts.

CONDITIONS FOR SETTING THE DTC
^ The PCM detects an electrical malfunction in the EGR high control circuit or in the EGR low control circuit.
^ The condition is present for more than 20 seconds.

ACTION TAKEN WHEN THE DTC SETS
^ The control module illuminates the malfunction indicator lamp (MIL) on the second consecutive ignition cycle that the diagnostic runs and fails.
^ The control module records the operating conditions at the time the diagnostic fails. The first time the diagnostic fails, the control module stores this information in the Failure Records. If the diagnostic reports a failure on the second consecutive ignition cycle, the control module records the operating conditions at the time of the failure. The control module writes the operating conditions to the Freeze Frame and updates the Failure Records.

CONDITIONS FOR CLEARING THE MIL/DTC
^ The control module turns OFF the malfunction indicator lamp (MIL) after 3 consecutive ignition cycles that the diagnostic runs and does not fail.
^ A current DTC, Last Test Failed, clears when the diagnostic runs and passes.
^ A history DTC clears after 40 consecutive warm-up cycles, if no failures are reported by this or any other emission related diagnostic.
^ Clear the MIL and the DTC with a scan tool.

Have a po405 code on a 02 impala, said its a egr


In Hopes the info BELOW will Help, And Also the Mass Air Flow Sensor is A Totaly Different Sensor (MAF) The EGR Valve Code you are asking About is More Related to the Exhaust Gas that the EGR Valve is Allowing to Flow Past Its Self. I can tell you that From My Own Experience that EGR Valves Get Dirty More than they Fail and Require a Simple Removal and Cleaning of Carbon Buildup. This is after the Procedure Below is Performed.

CIRCUIT DESCRIPTION
The powertrain control module (PCM) monitors the exhaust gas recirculation (EGR) valve pintle position input to ensure that the valve responds properly to commands from the PCM and to detect a fault if the pintle position sensor circuit is open or shorted. If the PCM detect an excessively low EGR Position sensor signal voltage, this diagnostic trouble code (DTC) will set.

CONDITIONS FOR RUNNING THE DTC
The system voltage is greater than 10 volts .

CONDITIONS FOR SETTING THE DTC
  • The EGR Position sensor is less than 0.14 volts at any time.
  • The condition is present for more than 20 seconds .
ACTION TAKEN WHEN THE DTC SETS
  • The control module illuminates the malfunction indicator lamp (MIL) on the second consecutive ignition cycle in which the diagnostic runs and fails.
  • The control module records the operating conditions at the time the diagnostic fails. The control module stores this information in the Freeze Frame/Failure Records.
  • The PCM disables the EGR valve for the ignition cycle.

Howdo i enter diagnostic mode 1994 deville


TROUBLE CODE DISPLAY:
After entering On-Board Diagnostics, a segment check is automatically performed and then any trouble code stored in computer memory will be displayed. Codes may be stored for the Powertrain Control Module (PCM), Instrument Panel Cluster (IPC), Air Conditioning Programmer (ACP), Supplemental Inflatable Restraint (SIR), Traction Control System (TCS) or Road Sensing Suspension (RSS) systems.
Each trouble code consists of the system abbreviation: (E: Engine, PCM), (I: IPC), (A: ACP), (R: SIR), (T: TCS), (S: RSS), a three digit code identifier, and the letter C or H. All codes for each system are displayed together, in the order of their three digit number (lowest first). The final digit of the code, a "C" or "H" is used to indicate whether the code is Current or History. A "C" means the fault was still present the last time the diagnostic test was run, while "H" means the failure was not present the last time the code was tested for.
If no codes are present for a system, a "NO X CODE" message (with "X" being the system i.e. E, I, A, R, T or S) will be displayed. If the communication line to a component is not operating, a "NO X DATA" message will be displayed, indicating that the IPC could not communicate with that system.
SELECTING THE SYSTEM:
After trouble codes have been displayed, a specific vehicle system PCM, IPC, ACP, SIR, TCS, RSS may be selected for testing.
The first available system will be automatically displayed (i.e. PCM?). While selecting the system to test, any of the following actions may be taken:
  1. Depressing the "HI" button on the CCC will select the displayed system for testing.
  2. Depressing the "LO" button on the CCC will display the next available system selection. This allows the display to be stepped through all system choices. This list of systems can be repeated following the end of the system list.
  3. Depressing the "OFF" button the CCC will stop the system selection process and return the display to the beginning of the trouble code sequence.
SELECTING THE TEST TYPE:
Having selected a system, the first available test type will be displayed (i.e. PCM DATA?, PCM CLEAR CODES?). While selecting a specific test type, any of the following actions may be taken:
  1. Depressing the "HI" button on the CCC will select the displayed test type. At this point the first of several specific tests will appear.
  2. Depressing the "LO" button on the CCC will display the next available test type for the selected system. This allows the display to be stepped through all available test type choices. This list of test types can be repeated following the display of the last test type.
  3. Depressing the "OFF" button on the CCC will stop the test type selection process and return the display to the next available system selection.
CLEAR CODES
Selection of "CLEAR CODES?" test will result in the message "CODES CLEARED" being displayed along with the selected systems name. This message will appear for 3 seconds and then return to the next available test type.
EXITING DIAGNOSTIC MODE:
To get out of the diagnostic mode anytime during the test, depress the "AUTO" or "DEFOG" button, or turn the ignition switch "OFF." Trouble codes are not erased if this is done prior to selecting "CODES CLEARED."
ECC Trouble Code Descriptions:
  • DTC A010 - Outside Temperature Sensor Circuit
  • DTC A011 - High Side Temperature Sensor Circuit
  • DTC A012 - Low Side Temperature Sensor Circuit
  • DTC A013 - In-Car Temperature Sensor Circuit
  • DTC A015 - Sunload Sensor Circuit
  • DTC A037 - Loss of IPC Data
  • DTC A040 - Air Mix Valve (Door) Circuit Problem
  • DTC A047 - Low Refrigerant Charge
  • DTC A048 - Low Refrigerant Pressure
  • DTC A050 - HVAC - Coolant Temperature Too High

Replaced fuel pump in 1998 for ranger


Diagnostic Trouble Code (DTC) P0232 indicates that the powertrain control module (PCM) detected the FPM circuit voltage was high when the fuel pump was commanded off. The FPM circuit is wired to a pull-up voltage inside the PCM. The FPM circuit will go high if, with the key on and the fuel pump commanded off, the FPM/FP PWR circuit loses its path to ground through the fuel pump. The FPM circuit will also be high if the FPM/FP PWR circuit is shorted to power.
Possible causes:
No Start:
Inertia fuel shutoff (IFS) switch not reset or electrically open.
Open circuit between the fuel pump and FPM circuit connection to the FP PWR circuit.
Poor fuel pump ground.
Fuel pump electrically open.
Diagnostic Trouble Code (DTC) P0102 indicates the MAF sensor signal went below 0.39 volt (refer to Voltage to Mass Air Flow Conversion Table at beginning of this Pinpoint Test) sometime during normal engine operation (Continuous) or during Key On Engine Running (KOER) Self-Test.
Did you have the MAF unplugged?
