Fault Code Example
Description: This will contain the basic description of the
code. If a sensor is mentioned here, it will be a link to a more
detailed explaination of it. Otherwise, a related sensor will be
linked at the first occurance on the page.
Power loss light: "Off" or "On" will indicate if the "power
loss", "limited", or "check engine" light will come on when the code is
Limp-in mode: A brief description of what the logic module
will do when this code is stored if the sensor is no longer useful.
Here will be a list of common and/or known causes of this code. For
example, you will see this one a lot:
Bad connection or wiring - Check the wiring and connections between
the sensor and the logic module (or SMEC). Clean and regrease any
corroded connectors with dielectric grease and repair any shorts.
This section will contain a list of all of the events that need to take
place for the code to be stored. This should give you a better idea
of what is wrong.
Results If Component Fails
What actions the logic module takes when the trigger parameters are met
will be described here. There will also be a detailed explaination
of the limp-in mode for this sensor, if applicable.
This section will only be present if there is additional information about
this fault code that is useful, but does not fall under any of the above
catagories. Again, all related sensors are provided with a link to
a page that give a more detailed description of the sensor, how it works,
how it is used by the logic module, and how to test them.
