    LOTS of Fault codes found now - is my engine goosed?

    Further to my previous post, I found no less than 6 fault codes stored from the pedal test. Strange thing is that no eml/spanner/etc lights are currently on?


    I found 6, but 2 appeared to be identical and one started with a 1 which I assume is wrong?

    P0120 TPS/ Throttle position senson A Circuit malfunction (see my other post)
    P0340 Camshaft position sensor A Bank 1 Circuit malfunction
    P0530 A/C Refrigerant Pressure sensor A Circuit malfunction
    P1550 (I assume P0550) Power Steering Pressure Sensor Circuit malfunction.

    Can I assume as no EML or spanner light is now showing that these were temporary blips and all is ok now? My previous post pointed out that the engine power momentarily cut on Saturday throwing on the spanner light and the esp light.

    Any clues?

    try resetting the codes, leaving it for a day then doing the pedal test again, you never know you might be lucky

    when you say momentarily cut out, did it stall or just shudder really badly? you serviced it recently or has it been a while? sorry i cant help much

    Some of the codes could be old ones that have not been cleared.

    As above get them cleared and start again.
