Р0335 – Р0339 The on-board computer informs the car owner of an incorrect signal or failure   crankshaft position sensor. You need to check the chain or replace the part, depending on what the fault is.
Р0340 – Р0344 If one of these combinations appeared on your laptop screen when diagnosing your Ford , it may indicate a wrong signal coming from the camshaft control device. The sensor should be replaced if necessary, or check the electrical circuit for breaks.

Engine codes

Code Description
P0171 – P0172 Too poor or too rich mixture in the engine.
P0173 The on-board computer recorded a gasoline leak from the fuel system.
Р0174 – Р0175 One of these combinations of numbers indicates the wrong level of the mixture in the engine (too poor or rich).
Р0215 Reported failure of the solenoid off the motor. With such an error, it may be difficult to start the engine. Also, the motor can troit when it is turned off. Replace the component.
Р0216 Interrupted or short-circuited in the circuit control the injection time. Need to more carefully check the chain.
Р0217 BK informs the car owner about overheating of the engine. First, check the quality of the coolant. In Ford cars Focus and Mondeo this error is one of the common. As a rule, it occurs due to the loss of antifreeze of its performance characteristics.
Р0218 BK has registered excessive temperature in the transmission system. Possible overheating. In this case, the operation of the transmission may be incorrect.
Р0219 Excessively high engine speeds are reported.
Р0243 – Р0246 One of these combinations indicates the incorrect operation of the first solenoid (A) of the exhaust gas shutter. The device can always be open or closed. It may also indicate a wrong signal.
Р0247 – Р0250 These figures as a result of the diagnostics report that the BC has registered the incorrect operation of the second solenoid (B) of the exhaust gas shutter. Replace the component.
Р0251 – Р0255 Reported incorrect operation of the injection pump of the first turbine. You need to more carefully check the circuit for openings and closures or replace the pump.
Р0256 – Р0260 One of these combinations of numbers indicates an incorrect signal from the second turbine injection pump. Also, these errors can be said about the failure of the element, resulting in the need to replace it.
Р0261 – Р0296 These codes report malfunctions in one of the twelve nozzle cylinders. It may be:

·   closing the flail of one of the nozzles to the ground;

·   open circuit;

·   injector driver malfunction.

In such cases, it is recommended to check the circuit more closely for open or short circuits. If this does not help and everything is in order with the chain, then the failed injectors must be replaced.

Р0300 BC recorded single or regular misfire.
Р0301 – Р0312 These combinations of figures indicate a misfire in one of the twelve cylinders.
  Р0410 An incorrect secondary air supply system is reported. The system should be checked for leaks.
Р0410 – Р0417 The appearance of these codes on the laptop screen during car diagnostics indicates:

·   failure of one of the two secondary air supply valves;

·   detecting errors in the secondary air supply system;

·   wrong mix flow through the system.

A more thorough check of the system should be made, as well as the failed valve should be replaced.

Р0420 Is one of the most common in the diagnosis of vehicles Ford Mondeo or Focus . This combination indicates an inefficient operation of the catalyst system.

Faults in the electrical circuit

Code Description
Р0200 – Р0212 Reported faults in the injector control circuit. It is necessary to make additional diagnostics of wires and to reveal the place of breakage or short circuit.
Р0213 Defects in the operation of the control circuit of the first or second cold start nozzles were recorded.
Р0230 – Р0233 In the event of the appearance of one of these combinations, the on-board computer warns the driver about an incorrect signal coming from the fuel pump. A breakdown may consist in shorting, grounding or breaking the wires of the primary or secondary circuit.
  Р0320 This combination informs the driver about a break or a short in the electric circuit of the ignition distributor. This may also result in misfire.
  Р0321 – Р0323 An invalid signal is reported in the electrical distributor circuit. The signal may be intermittent or out of range. In addition, it may simply be absent.
Р0325 Registered breaks in the electrical circuit of the first knock sensor. An incorrect signal may come from the device, but the problem cannot be fixed by replacing the component.

Other breakdowns

Next, consider codes that do not fall into any of the above categories. However, these combinations of errors are most common in Ford Fusion, Focus and Mondeo cars.

Code Description
Р1000 It is reported that the readiness check of the EOBD system was not carried out. This code is hardly an error. Most likely, this is a sign of system self-tuning. As a rule, it appears after a memory reset has been performed, a recalibration hasoccurred, or a module has been reflashed . Often this code will disappear automatically after the calibration has passed, that is, the car will be used for a while.
P2008 On-board computer recorded incorrect operation of the intake manifold. Also we can talk about faults in the electric circuit.
U1900   BC recorded a connection failure on the CAN bus. To eliminate this error, you must:

·   disconnect all trip computers used in the car;

·   turn off all electrical devices, including the media system, GPS navigator, etc .;

·   turn off the alarm;

·   reset the DTC using the on-board computer or disconnecting the battery terminals.

  Р0420   This combination indicates the inefficiency of the catalytic system . Defects in the operation of the catalytic converter may also be detected.
  Р1131 There is a short circuit on the lambda probe.
  Р251А The on-board computer has detected an open circuit in the switching device.   access to the RTO.
R2303 This combination indicates an error in the car’s ignition coil. In practice, such a code occurs most often when the coil power wire is frayed. To eliminate the cause of damage, replace the wire.
U0001 CAN data bus failed.
U0401 Registered incorrect data reception with   ECM / PCM.
