There may be a possiblity of doing damage to the turbo if you continue to drive it this way. I would recommend either taking it to the dealer or a reputable repair shop in your area to have this repaired as soon as possible, as to not risk damaging the turbo. Hope this helps.

My engine light came on, code P1281 is what the computer read, what does that mean? and how would I fix it?


Hi...Code P1281 means the engine is staying cold too long - check your thermostat. It is possible your thermostat is stuck in the open position.

Hope this helped,

My check engine light is on. Its reading code p1281 engine cool for too long. My heat and ac works fine with no problems. What should I do?


This code is stored when the thermostat does not function properly and it causes the engine to take longer than normal to heat up to operating temperature. So to fix the problem will require the thermostat to be replaced. Have the thermostat replaced and the codes cleared.

    For the P0700 I would check your tps sensor first to make sure it is good. This is a common failure in this vehicle which can sometimes show as a transimission malfunction.

    My resources say P1281 is engine is cold too long. That would lead me to possibilty of faulty thermostat, or something else in cooling system. What exactly are you getting for symptoms? No start, poor starting, poor running, ?
