    Default Fault Codes Found

    Well plugged my new fault code reader on tonight and identified these faults:

    OP-COM 081016 - PC based diagnostic tool

    Please add your workshop
    name in the settings window

    OP-COM - CAN Communicaton Window> 2004|Vectra-C / Signum|Engine|Z 19 DT


    Read Info...

    Identifier: 0x0711
    VIN: W0L0ZCF3541079931
    Hardware number:81011449
    Motor type: Z19DT
    Part Number:55189630
    Software version number: MNPMS120_S
    Hardware manufacturer number: 0281011449
    Hardware key number: S001002172
    System description: BOSCH0100
    Type approval number: B04016
    Alpha code: LM
    Hardware manufacturer system name: EDC16


    Total number of fault codes: 3

    P0703 - Brake Switch Circuit Malfunction
    (04) - Not present

    P0380 - Glow Device General Error
    (08) - Not present

    P1125 - Throttle Actuator Feedback Circuit Malfunction
    (08) - Not present


    So we know the faults but how do I rectify them?

    Edit

    Ive searched the individual codes and in order:


    P0703 Torque Converter/Brake Switch B Circuit Malfunction

    P0380 Glow Plug/Heater Circuit "A" Malfunction

    P1125 Throttle position sensor intermittent

    So would I be correct in assuming I need a new throttle pedal and sensor?

    I thought that "not present" meant it was an old fault that just needs clearing?

    I did clear the faults and I think its the same 3 faults which were there when the garage scanned it and cleared it, I just bought the scanner as I couldnt keep taking the **** and getting free scans.

    Forgot to add the link above:

    Fattony - Has your car been having a slight hesitation while you have been driving it?

    Mine does this, and this morning I used cruise control instead of keeping my foot on the gas and the problem didn't occur which leads me to think that I may have the same Throttle Position Sensor Intermittent problem.

    I used the same conditions - 70mph in 6th gear - but the speed was regulated by the CC instead of pedal and no problem.

    Could anyone expand on this fault code as I believe its whats causing my hesitation and I changed the throttle pedal with no success - fault is still there.

    Richy yes I have the same problem but doesnt seem to be there with cc on, mines just over 100k miles how about yours?

    As I replied on your other thread m8, ask the garage to check the connection at the throttle pedal and ECU.

    Maybe you need to clean/change the throttle body.

    Surely if it was the throttle body the fault would be there using either the pedal or cruise. As previously stated, it sounds more like fly by wire connection between the pedal and ecu.

    Follow the big turbo hose on the right hand side of the engine to where it connects to the engine, that is the throttle body. Probably best to remove it from the engine and clean with carb cleaner and a small brush.
