DTC P1384 is VVT (Variable Valve Timing) Solenoid A malfunction

also Glow Plug Circuit malfunction.

I used to test heaters across a battery like you may have done from the above, but that only proves they glow, it does not prove the system functions correctly. A good way is to check the resistance of each plug first, which should be around 0.1 Ohm each, this ensures with the correct voltage supply they will each draw 120A. High resistance will impear their function some what. Starting may not be impeared like the old days?

Measure the current draw through the circuit when all components are installed and connected, compare against recommended data. Based on above one knows that initially 480A should be drawn through the circuit. The second part to your question, are they heating all the time?
Modern heater systems have an after glow period which is quite normal, so they are not just used to start an engine in very cold conditions anymore with modern vehicles.

When we had problems with Vauxhall systems we used to change all plugs and relay at same time. Other owners comment about have the solution to the problem, next to a glow plug control unit was also defective. Strangely, although more moderately ohms measured, but little compared to the others. Be that as he was running normally again.

Hope this helps

92 dodge shadow trouble code 355

Are you sure it's not 1355? The fault codes using the key on/off sequence are two digit codes, and code 55 means the end of the list. So it may be 13, 55. Code 13 means the ECU is not receiving a MAP (manifold absolute pressure) signal. See the link for the breakdown of Chrysler fault codes (bottom of page).

Error code p1384 and 1396


Possible Causes:
- Bank 2 VVT solenoid valve to PCM PWM drive circuit fault.
- Bank 2 VVT actuator oil supply fault.
- Bank 2 VVT actuator stuck.

The biggest issues with vvts are oil supply issues. Useally debris like oil sludge in oil pickup screen, loose bearing clearances as an engine wears, and oil passages blocked/partially blocked to and in vvts. The first (i always shoot for cheapest potential likely fix) use a good engine flush(2 bottle for our higher than normal capacity engines) follow directions on bottle. Change oil and switch to a 20-50w. Leave out 1 quart and add 1 qt auto ****** atf(highly detergent, more so than engine oil and wont hurt anything) while you have overly ******** cam codes, it may be an issue of apply and blockage that keeps pressure in vvts too long when supposed to release. Most times its ******** cams( like the 1 i am doing right now....try this first and go from there, rememebr to clears codes and give time, you may have to clear codes a few times as it may continue to reset.

Subaru wrx impreza showing fault code p0037. how do i fix this fault which sensor is it and where is the sensor located?

It's an O2 sensor according to the above link, and it is bank 1 sensor 2 low, the 2 meaning that it is downstream past the catalytic converter but not on the manifold.

- Heated Oxygen Sensor (H2OS) Bank 1 Sensor 2 circuit open shorted to ground
- Heated Oxygen Sensor (H2OS) Bank 1 Sensor 2 circuit poor electrical connection
- Faulty Heated Oxygen Sensor (H2OS) Bank 1 Sensor 2 circuit
- Heated Oxygen Sensor (H2OS) Bank 1 Sensor 2 circuit fuse
- Faulty Engine Control Module (ECM) Possible Solution Tech Notes The code means that there is a problem with the heater element circuit of the heated oxygen sensor. Water getting inside the heated oxygen sensor connector can caused the heated oxygen sensor fuse to blow, which is a very common problem for this type codes. Before replacing the sensor, check for the condition of the heated oxygen sensor fuse and connectors.
Good luck on this repair.

TROUBLE CODES System Diagnosis READING CODES When the "Check Engine'' warning light on the dashboard comes on and stays on, it indicates a problem in the fuel injection/emissions system. Check the ECU for fault codes. On certain models, some codes will not trigger the check engine light; if driveability has suffered, check for stored fault codes. The most common error when using fault codes is to assume the indicated component has failed rather than checking the entire circuit. The presence of a trouble code means simply that the electrical circuit for the named component is not functioning properly. For example, a code for the oxygen sensor circuit does not automatically mean the oxygen sensor has failed. A wire terminal may simply be loose or corroded at the connector. When using diagnostic or fault codes, always remember that the entire circuit including the component must be checked carefully. On 1990-95 Accord (except V-6) and 1992-95 Prelude, the codes are read from the check engine light after the two-wire service connector has been jumpered. On Accords, the service connector is under the dash on the passenger side. On Preludes, it is located behind the center console. Codes 1 through 9 are indicated by a series of short flashes; two-digit codes use a long flash for the first digit followed by the appropriate number of short flashes. For example, Code 14 would be indicated by 1 long flash followed by 4 short flashes. Codes are separated by a pause between displays. Multiple codes are transmitted in an alternating pattern. For example, a code 3 and 14 would be displayed as 3 short flashes (for Code 3) followed by the separator pause, then 1 long flash and 4 short flashes (for Code 14).

Fig. 8: On Accords, the service connector is located under the dash on the passenger side 86804049.gif
Fig. 9: The service connector on Preludes is located behind the center console 86804050.gif
  1. Use a jumper wire to connect the two terminals of the service connector together.
  2. Turn the ignition switch ON; the check engine light will display any stored codes by rhythmic flashing. NOTE: In the event that a code is encountered which is not on the chart, re-count the number of flashes. If the code is truly wrong, it will be necessary to swap the ECU for a known-good unit and recheck. Since this can be expensive, you may wish to bring the car to a reputable repair facility if no other cause of the failure can be found. This may save you the expense of purchasing an unnecessary part.
  3. If no codes are displayed but a driveablity problem exits, testing of the system individual components is necessary to find the problem. If codes are displayed, follow the appropriate troubleshooting chart in this section. Fig. 10: Fault code chart for 1990-93 Accords 86804051.gif
