    I am also getting the F 51 Error Code. What causes this? The manual says to call for service, but does not say what is the cause of the problem.

How to repair if engine cannot race up when vehicle is running in Toyota Model KDN190R-CRPSYT vehicle?

If it is a Tercel or MR2, it is T and E1 terminals. Code 21 is main oxygen sensor signal fault. Code 51 is A/C signal on; DL contact off (in transmission shifter with diagnostic connector jumped). I have no idea what that 51 means.

1994 F150 Airbag Trouble Code 51

Code 51 means you have to retrieve the real code from the computer.

Ignition switch should be on with engine off.

Locate the black RABS II diagnostic connector.

Disconnect the two halves.
Attach a jumper wire to the black with orange stripe wire side of the diagnostic connector. Ground the jumper wire ground for a few seconds. ABS lamp should start flashing.

Count the flashes. For example, three short flashes followed by one long flash indicates diagnostic trouble Code 4. The code will continue to repeat itself until the key is turned off. A code of 16 means normal system operation.
The last step of the system test always includes clearing the Keep Alive Memory (KAM).

To do this, simply turn off the ignition while the diagnostic connector halves are separated

Then diagnostic connector should be re-assembled.

After getting the real code, then we can look it up and see what the 51 was trying to tell us to look for.

F then 51 flashes when there is a motor rotor position sensor (RPS) failure.
It can also be a defective control board false reporting an error which is common on these models.

to be replaced.
1.rotor sensor itself
2.the control board

F-51 code on Cabrio Washer

usually this means you have a bad rps sensor that is attached to your motor. when you lifted the lid you should have seen the tech sheet it is attached inside the cabinet in the front. this should help you. the rps sensor has i believe 3 wires attached to it with a quick disconnect. let me know if this helps.

➔ Does basket turn freely? If not, determine cause of friction.
➔ If basket turns freely, see TEST #3, Page 10.
the above link is for code 51, very similar. the quite above is from the PDF manual. I just solved this problem on my machine. turned out it was clothing between the 2 baskets. Others have had bad control boards, or bad sensors
