3.5L V6 VIN L Auto

Trouble Code: C0241



PCM Indicated Requested Torque Malfunction

Trouble Code: C0244



Pulse Width Modulated (PWM) Delivered Torque

Possible Causes:



It is very important that a thorough inspection of the wiring and connectors be performed. Failure to carefully and fully inspect wiring and connectors may result in misdiagnosis, causing part replacement with reappearance of the malfunction.
 
If an intermittent malfunction exists, refer to Checking Aftermarket Accessories in Wiring Systems.
 
Possible causes for DTC C0244 to set:

An open in the torque delivered control circuit
 
Torque Delivered Control circuit shorted to ground or voltage
 
A communication frequency problem
 
A communication duty cycle problem
 
Torque delivered control circuit has a wiring problem, terminal corrosion, or poor connections
 
EBCM not receiving information from the PCM
 

 

Trouble Code: P0016



Crankshaft Position (CKP) - Camshaft Position (CMP) Correlation

Possible Causes:



Inspect the engine for any recent engine mechanical repairs. An incorrectly installed camshaft, crankshaft, or timing chain can cause this DTC to set.
 
For an intermittent condition, refer to Testing for Intermittent Conditions and Poor Connections .
 

Trouble Code: P0030

Trouble Code: P0068



Throttle Body Airflow Performance

Trouble Code: P0101



Mass Air Flow (MAF) Sensor Performance

Possible Causes:



Inspect the harness of the MAF sensor to verify that it is not routed too close to the following components:

Any aftermarket accessories--Refer to Checking Aftermarket Accessories .
 
The secondary ignition wires or coils
 
Any solenoids
 
Any relays
 
Any motors
 

A low minimum air rate through the sensor bore at idle or during deceleration may cause this DTC to set. Inspect for the following conditions:

Any deposits on the throttle plate or in the throttle bore
 
Any vacuum leak downstream of the MAF sensor
 

Inspect for any contamination or debris on the sensing elements of the MAF sensor.Inspect the air induction system for any water intrusion. Any water that reaches the MAF sensor will skew the sensor and may cause this DTC to set.A wide open throttle (WOT) acceleration from a stop should cause the MAF sensor parameter on the scan tool to increase rapidly. This increase should be from 3-10 g/s at idle to 150 g/s or more at the time of the 1-2 shift. If the increase is not observed, inspect for a restriction in the induction system or the exhaust system.Inspect for a skewed or stuck ECT sensor.A high resistance of 15 ohms or more on the ignition 1 voltage circuit may cause this DTC to set. A high resistance may cause a driveability concern before this DTC sets.The BARO that is used in order to calculate the predicted mass air flow value is initially based on the MAP sensor at key ON. When the engine is running, the BARO value is continually updated near wide open throttle. A skewed MAP sensor will cause the calculated mass air flow value to be inaccurate and may result in a no start condition. The value shown for the MAP sensor parameter varies with the altitude. With the ignition ON and the engine OFF, 101 kPa is the approximate value near sea level. This value will decrease by approximately 3 kPa for every 305 meters (1,000 feet) of altitude.A high resistance on the low reference circuit of the MAP sensor may cause this DTC to set.If the condition is intermittent, refer to Testing for Intermittent Conditions and Poor Connections .
 

Trouble Code: P0102



Mass Air Flow (MAF) Sensor Circuit Low Frequency

Possible Causes:



Inspect the harness of the MAF sensor to verify that it is not routed too close to the following components:

The secondary ignition wires or coils
 
Any solenoids
 
Any relays
 
Any motors
 

A wide open throttle (WOT) acceleration from a stop should cause the MAF sensor parameter on the scan tool to increase rapidly. This increase should be from 3-10 g/s at idle to 150 g/s or more at the time of the 1-2 shift. If the increase is not observed, inspect for a restriction in the induction system or the exhaust system.A high resistance may cause a driveability concern before this DTC sets.
 

Trouble Code: P0103



Mass Air Flow (MAF) Sensor Circuit High Frequency

Possible Causes:



Inspect the harness of the MAF sensor to verify that it is not routed too close to the following components:

The secondary ignition wires or coils
 
Any solenoids
 
Any relays
 
Any motors
 

A wide open throttle (WOT) acceleration from a stop should cause the MAF sensor parameter on the scan tool to increase rapidly. This increase should be from 3-10 g/s at idle to 150 g/s or more at the time of the 1-2 shift. If the increase is not observed, inspect for a restriction in the induction system or the exhaust system.A high resistance may cause a driveability concern before this DTC sets.

A lean condition could be present during high fuel demand due to a fuel pump that does not pump enough fuel.
 
Excessive resistance in the ignition 1 voltage and/or the fuel injector circuits may cause the following symptoms:

A lean condition
 
Misfire
 
Rough idle
 

Fuel contamination, such as water and alcohol, will effect the fuel trim.This DTC may set due to poor idle characteristics as a result of uncontrolled fueling caused by an open or high resistance in the HO2S 1 low signal circuit.
