147 2 ts - What's triggered all these error codes?
Replaced faulty ignition switch today which was preventing car from starting. Car now starts but for reasons unknown to me it is in limp mode, engine malfunction light is on and thrown up the following errors:
P 0220 Accelerator potentiometer – invalid signal/Fatal/Light On
P 1221 Accelerator potentiometer track 1 -signal low/Fatal/Light On
P 0340 Camshaft position sensor – signal high/Fatal/Light On
P 0100 Air flow meter – signal low/Fatal/Light On
When attempting to clear the errors with Multiecuscan, the first 2 do not clear at all and the remaining 2 return within about 2 seconds. This is puzzling as the errors were not present prior to ignition switch replacement.
OK so let's see what I did in between ignition switch failure and its replacement: I unplugged the MAF, removed post MAF pipe, removed throttle, unplugged the Electronic module which sits on top of the throttle, unbolted starter motor, removed trigger and main stater cables, tested starter, refitted it, and refitted what I took off.
I tested output of starter trigger wire feed at the ignition switch. It failed.
I removed the ignition switch from the lock barrel assembly and turned the switch by hand and after some fiddling about, the starter motor kicked in as normal and started the car.
At this point the errors occurred. At the moment, I'm wondering if something in the switch has damaged the ECU.
I've done ECU resets by unplugging battery etc, Unpluged the MAF, camshaft position sensor connectors and reconnected them, checked all fuses under dash, battery and in front of battery and, these errors do not clear. Haven't checked relays though!
Crank sensor plug not checked as I can't see it. Not sure if a failure at crank sensor connector would result in the above errors being triggered.
Oh the battery was and is fully charged.
Any ideas appreciated.
