On-Board Diagnostic Trouble Code Description Chart

___________________________________________________________________

5/12/2004

Ive had the SES light staring me in the face for a while now. It first came on after I had taken the Apten chip out and put it back in. So I pulled the chip and reset the PCM in the process. The light came on 10 minutes down the road. I reset the PCM again, and it stayed off for about 50 miles before coming on again. I had the codes scanned at A/Z, and the result was 16XX or 17XX (should have written that down!) something about an Idle Speed Sensor (?) I checked around on the V8SHO.com site and the SHOTimes FAQ to no avail.

The car is running just fine. The tach does indicate a very slight variation in idle (like 50rpm variance or less) but the idle isnt rough or anything. Gas mileage is fine (27mpg highway.)

As a shot in the dark, I pulled the two electrical plugs on the TB and cleaned out the connectors with contact cleaner. I even managed to get at the small grey plug right under the TB (on the block) and clean that one out. The orange one next to it was too much of a PITA to get at. After securing all the connections, I started up the car and drove to the gas station. By the time I got there, the darn SES light came back on. Any ideas?

I just looked up the code. It was P1755 - Intermediate Speed Sensor. The guy said Idle Speed Sensor but I think he just read it wrong (I verified that it was Intermediate on the v8sho.com site.) Anyone know what that means or how I could fix it?

NOTE: Prior to entering pinpoint tests, the vehicle harness must be checked for continuity and shorts, and the PCM must be checked for any concerns. Refer to the Powertrain Control/Emissions Diagnosis Manual for proper procedures.

NOTE: If any non-transaxle DTCs appear, service those DTCs first. They could affect the electrical operation of the transaxle. Record and erase codes from continuous memory after repairs have been performed. After servicing any DTCs in the Quick Test, the Quick Test should be repeated.

NOTE: Check the PCM system wiring harness for proper connection, bent or broken pins, corrosion, loose wires, proper routing, proper seals and their condition. Check the PCM sensors and actuators for physical damage.
