Computer : c0455 , c0244. In addition, these vehicles also exhibit a rough engine idle. This is a quick and easy test using an. Learn how to perform the reset procedure and replace the ignition lock cylinder. If no other problems are found, then replace 1 02 sensor.
Continue driving and see if the check engine light turns off. It's important to understand the differences between these two parts. Clean your throttle body with throttle body cleaner. Since both of these components remain relatively inexpensive, I'm now recommending to my customers that they replace both parts at the same time. This gray plastic lock needs to pop up before it releases from the sensor. However, if we start with diagnosis of the P0013 and the P0014 we solve the problem, clear the codes, and deal with any of the additional codes that return.
We can also check the signal wire and the ground integrity at the connector. We'll get into that below, but we also have to make you aware of another issue climbing its way up the list of common trailblazer problems. I swapped Throttle-Body with my Trailblazer. Therefore, the condition surfaces on high mileage vehicles or at any mileage with a lack of oil changes. Your computer learned some bad habits, so when you changed the battery, the computer thought the throttle body was clean and functioning properly. This is why mechanics believe in starting diagnosis with the lowest number code first. As I mentioned in the opening, replacing the trailblazer camshaft position sensor is one of the easier tasks you will ever run into on an automobile.
Probably not connected with the P1400 though. When the solenoid starts to experience problems you often set a check engine light code of P1345. The other bulletins dont seem to apply. Any chance my Dealer would fix this at no charge? It talks about a redesigned pump intake hose and routing to prevent water from getting into the pump. Diagnosis and repair should be complete as soon as possible. But you can set codes from P0340 all the way through P0349. Due to engines imploding they quit making them and Chevy took over in 1998 calling it the Blazer.
Remove the retaining bolt from the ignition coil. However, when you have problems with the Trailblazer camshaft position sensor you'll often set a completely different check engine light code. But it sounds like it is working. Your computer learned some bad habits, so when you changed the battery, the computer thought the throttle body was clean and functioning properly. All you need to do is take the old one off and screw on the new one. If not, those are definitely due for a change too. These can range from a faulty spark plug lead, shorted kill switch or flywheel key damage.
Difference between Camshaft Sensors and Solenoids As you can see the camshaft position sensor simply reports to the computer the current position of the camshaft. You'll find this issue surfacing on Trailblazer models from 2002 through 2006. This error code is a manufacturer-specific trouble code, meaning it does not apply to all vehicles makes. You can also find a code P1345 which stands for a camshaft correlation error. However, it didn't make itself obvious until I went to check for voltage in the connector slot. What causes the P0506 code? Sludge builds up in the ports and oil no longer flows to move the cam phaser. However, from my experience with this actuator failure, shows they will pass both of these tests, yet the solenoid remains the root cause of the problem.
In other words, the computer has given the command for the solenoid to activate and not detected that the solenoid followed the instructions. They rely on sensors and electronics to control the throttle. No change in condition,,, which means the throttle body is not bad. Cleaning your throttle body should take care of both problems. Reconnect all the senser connectores and the one on the cam adjuster for sure with the engine trying to idel wrap on the actuater it's on the end of the head to unstick it. Ever changed those O2 sensors since you got the truck? Disconnect the negative battery cable at the battery.
Refer to the illustration above. So I'll be cleaning my throttle body this weekend too. Note that this isn't the only Chevrolet product with camshaft issues. Posted on Aug 05, 2011 forums. Slide the intermediate shaft off the column shaft, then pry the sensor of the column after disconnecting the electrical connector. Now don't ask yourself; What should you do with P0506 code? A friend checked the code- P1400. Remove the pinch bolt that attaches the intermediate steering shaft to the bottom of the column shaft.
Remove the air cleaner outlet resonator. Like others have said- it was easy and the engine runs smoother audibly and by feel. With the bolts removed will move just enough to facilitate the removal of the solenoid. Wires can break anytime and other menchaic work may have overlooked reconnecting the connector or damageing it in some way. Check the air filter element for dirt or signs of deterioration.
Start and idle the engine. If it runs any different with it unplugged or you don't see the 12 volts go looking for blown fuses in the underhood fuse panel. Possible Causes Many factors lead to this error code. The bypass air flow is reduced and the idle speed decreases as the pintle approaches its seat. I changed it last year and it was fine until I filled up a couple of months ago- back to using the odometer. Tighten the bolt until the clamp load of the bolt secures the Air Distribution Manifold and Retaining Bracket to the back of the engine cylinder head.
