September 16, 2020 P2610 Code: ECM/PCM Engine Off Timer PerformanceThe vehicle has either the ECM or PCM as its engine controller, which relies on signals from the engine to identify how long the engine has been shut off. In many cases, the control module will use the engine coolant temperature sensor signal to determine how long the engine has September 15, 2020 P0117 Code: Engine Coolant Temperature Sensor 1 Circuit Low Diagnostic trouble code (DTC) P0117 stands for “Engine Coolant Temperature Sensor 1 Circuit Low.” It indicates that the vehicle’s powertrain control module or PCM has detected a low voltage input from the engine coolant temperature (ECT) sensor 1.
September 15, 2020 P0116 Code: Engine Coolant Temperature Sensor 1 Circuit Range/PerformanceA change in coolant temperature will cause a change in resistance on the ECT sensor’s signal wire. This data is used by the PCM to determine the current operating temperature of the engine. Inaccurate information from this sensor will cause the PCM to make adjustments according to false operating conditions, September 02, 2020 P2181 Code: Cooling System PerformanceUnlike other DTCs that point to specific components that might be malfunctioning, this powertrain code is generic and does not include any specifics. Therefore, it is important to check for other codes that may have been logged by onboard diagnostics.
When the coolant temperature in your radiator and your engine August 19, 2020 P0125 Code: Insufficient Coolant Temperature for Closed Loop Fuel ControlDiagnostic trouble code (DTC) P0125 code stands for “Insufficient Coolant Temperature for Closed Loop Fuel Control.” It means the engine coolant temperature (ECT) sensor is telling the powertrain control module (PCM) that the engine isn’t reaching the temperature required for it to go into closed-loop operation within the specified time August 27, 2020 Ford Gives F-150 Additional Standard Safety TechPreviously, F-150 buyers looking for a truck equipped with automatic emergency braking didn’t have much choice but to get a Lariat trim or higher. But a spokesperson for Ford confirmed that the company is now making the tech available on all trim levels of the truck. This is in addition
