These codes are for a malfunctioning ignition coil/s.
P0351= ignition coil A primary/secondary circuit malfunction.
P0354= ignition coil D primary/secondary circuit malfunction.
visually check the coil packs for burn marks, damage, loose wire connectors, and the wire harness to each of the coils for damage. How long has this been happening? Has any work been done recently? Did the engine compartment recently get wet?

2010 ford fusion died and won't start but it will turn over. codes p0456,p0351,p0352,p0353 and p0354.

p0351,p0352,p0353 and p0354. It won't start because you have four cylinders not firing . P0351 - Ignition Coil A Primary/Secondary Circuit Description: See the description for DTC P0350. Possible Causes: See the possible causes for DTC P0350. Diagnostic Aids: See the diagnostic aids for DTC P0350. Application Key On Engine Off Key On Engine Running Continuous Memory Coil-on-plug (COP) ignition testing - GO to Pinpoint Test JF . GO to Pinpoint Test JF . Coil pack ignition testing - GO to Pinpoint Test JE . GO to Pinpoint Test JE .
When you see these codes , it's time to worry . These ford coil on plug system's can fry the transistors that control the coil firing . New computer or reman at ford $ 800.00 buck's then it needs to be programmed (dealer) What engine ? 3.0 v-6
This happens when the spark plug's are neglected , gap get's to wide , make's coil's over heat an break down , spark goes through the primary wire to the computer . Your best bet , take it to a qualified repair shop.

Update 2005 Pontiac vibe , giving faults codes p0351,p0352,p0353,p0354,replaced p0352 coil . car running great.

It may run fine but it's in fail safe mode
DTC P0351-P0354
DTCs P0351 through P0354 Ignition Coil Primary/Secondary Feedback Circuit diagnostic monitors the primary circuitry of individual ignition coils for the successful completion of an ignition event. The ignition trigger signal and ignition fail-safe input signal provide crucial information in the control of ignition system timing and the activation of the fail-safe function. Based on the initial timing angle, calculated from the crankshaft and the camshaft position signals, the powertrain control module (PCM) calculates the ignition trigger signal. The ignition trigger signal is then sent to the ignition control circuitry located in each ignition coil. The ignition control circuitry initiates the ignition dwell period by commanding the power transistor ON. When the PCM determines the proper time to provide spark, the PCM turns OFF the ignition trigger signal. In response to the PCM signal, the ignition coil control circuitry turns OFF the power transistor, producing a high voltage discharge from the secondary coil windings. After the spark has occurred, the control circuitry sends an ignition fail-safe input signal back to the PCM, confirming that an ignition event has taken place. If the ignition fail-safe input signal is not received by the PCM, a cylinder specific DTC will set.
Anytime the fail-safe input signal is lost, engine operation will enter the fail-safe function. If engine load exceeds certain parameters during the fail-safe function, Fuel Cut-off mode is activated and fuel injector operation is ceased. The suspension of fuel injection in the Fuel Cut-off mode protects the catalytic converter from damage. Damage can occur when excess unburned fuel reaches the converter and causes the catalyst to overheat.

Diagnostic Aids
• Check for the following conditions:
- An interruption of the ground circuit or voltage supply to the ignition coil will prevent a proper ignition event from taking place. A DTC P0351 through P0354 will set if there is a fault in any of the ignition coil circuits.
- If DTCs P0352, P0353, and P0354 are present, the fault is located in the shared electrical circuits or shared components of the ignition coils.
- Inspect the ignition coil grounds at G 105 for a clean and tight connection.
- The scan tool data parameters for Misfire Current Cylinder # are frozen at the time the MIL illuminates when the DTC sets.
- If no engine misfire is felt when the DTC sets, inspect for a fault in the Ignition Fail-Safe Input circuit.
- Inspect the noise filter for an internal short or low resistance. The ignition coil may not receive adequate voltage during high load conditions if the noise filter is faulty. A good noise filter will indicate infinite resistance (OL) with a DMM after the capacitor inside the filter is charged up.
- Unless the ignition key is cycled or the DTCs are cleared, the PCM waits to receive ignition fail-safe signals before providing fuel injector operation.
• An intermittent malfunction may be caused by a fault in the ignition coil electrical circuit. Inspect the wiring harness and the components for an intermittent condition. Refer to Intermittent Conditions .
• Repair any electrical circuit faults that were found. Refer to Wiring Repairs .
• The information included in the Freeze Frame data can be useful in determining the vehicle operating conditions when the DTC first set.

I have a 2000 dodge Durango with the 4.7L engine in it. on my way home it started to shutter and lose power. had a friend put his code reader on it and it came up with error codes...

P0320 is crankshaft sensor and the last code is an ignition coil malfunction probably caused by the position sensor error.
Could be a faulty connector. Could be the crankshaft sensor.

Ford edge wont start codes ,p0351,p0352,p0354,p0316

You may need a mechanic for this one.
The first three codes are for coil problems on cylinders 1-2-4.
Code 316 is for a cylinder miss on startup which would follow along with the other codes.
Someone would need to test the coils and the circuits that power them.
It is unlikely all three have failed, but rather something with the computer or the crank or cam sensors.

Miss fireing

Hi there:

P0351 Ignition Coil A Primary/Secondary Circuit Malfunction
P0352 Ignition Coil B Primary/Secondary Circuit Malfunction

P0354 Ignition Coil D Primary/Secondary Circuit Malfunction

Work for all coil codes. The COP (coil on plug) ignition system is what is used on most modern engines. There is an individual coil for each cylinder that is controlled by the PCM (powertrain control module). It eliminates the need for spark plug wires by putting the coil right above the sparkplug. Two wires are dedicated to each coil. One is a battery feed usually from the power distribution center. The other wire is the coil driver circuit from the PCM. The PCM grounds/ungrounds this circuit to activate or deactivate the coil. The coil driver circuit is monitored by the PCM for faults

If an open or a short is detected in the driver circuit for coil number 1, a P0351 may set. Also, depending on the vehicle, the PCM may also shut down the fuel injector to the cylinder also.

Symptoms of a P0351 P0352 and P0354 DTC may include:
MIL (Malfunction indicator lamp) illumination
Engine misfire may be present or intermittent

Potential causes of a P0351 , P0352 and P0354 code include:
Short to voltage or ground on COP driver circuit
Open on COP driver circuit
Loose connection at coil or broken connector locks
Bad Coil (COP)
Faulty Powertrain Control Module

Possible Solutions:
Is the engine misfiring presently? If not, the problem is likely intermittent. Try wiggle testing the wiring at the #1 coil and along the wiring harness to the PCM. If manipulating the wiring causes the misfire to surface, repair the wiring problem. Check for poor connection at the coil connector. Verify the harness isn't misrouted or chafing on anything. Repair as necessary

If the engine is misfiring presently, stop the engine and disconnect the #1 coil wiring connector. Then start the engine and check for a driver signal to the #1 coil or #2. Using a scope will give you a visual pattern to observe, but since most people don't have access to one there's an easier way. Use a Voltmeter in AC Hertz scale and see if there's a Hz reading of between 5 and 20 or so that indicates the driver is working. If there is a Hertz signal, then replace the #1 ignition coil. It's likely bad. If you don't detect any frequency signal from the PCM on the ignition coil driver circuit indicating the PCM is grounding/ungrounding the circuit (or there is no visible pattern on the scope if you have one) then leave the coil disconnected and check for DC voltage on the driver circuit at the ignition coil connector. If there is any significant voltage on that wire then there is a short to voltage somewhere. Find the short and repair it.

If there is no voltage on the driver circuit, then turn the ignition off. Disconnect the PCM connector and check the continuity of the driver between the PCM and the coil. If there is no continuity repair the open or short to ground in the circuit. If continuity is present, then check for resistance between ground and the ignition coil connector. There should be infinite resistance. If there isn't, repair the short to ground in the coil driver circuit

NOTE: If the ignition coil driver signal wire is not open or shorted to voltage or ground and there is no trigger signal to the coil then suspect a faulty PCM coil driver. Also keep in mind that if the PCM driver is at fault, there may be a wiring problem that caused the PCM failure. It's a good idea to do the above check after PCM replacement to verify there won't be a repeat failure. If you find that the engine isn't misfiring, the coil is being triggered properly but P0351 is continually being reset, there is the possibility that the PCM coil monitoring system may be faulty.

Hope this helps; also keep in mind that your feedback is important and I`ll appreciate your time and consideration if you leave some testimonial comment about this answer.

Thank you for using FixYa, have a nice day.

2004 Taurus DOHC; All COPs and spark plugs have been replaced. Intermittent problem (car may run great for weeks at a time) Then engine runs very poorly, and these codes come up: P0351, P0352,...

codes p0350-p0360 are all coil primary/secondary failure codes. could possibly be the pcm its self if you have already replaced all 6 coils and plugs. there have also been cases i have seen where a remote start system is the cause, if one is installed check the wiring where they tie into the ignition system

I am change out a direct ingnition coil, which is the c coil?

"C" stands for cylinder #3. Facing the engine from the front of the car, the cylinders go A, B, C, D left to right (i.e., A closest to passenger side). To test you coil, change it with another. Codes are specific to each cylinder. A = P0351, B = P0352, C = P0353, and D = P0354.
