This was something that I wondered when i used to do the pedal dance but always forgot to ask, is there any indication that the ECU and fuel pump have been put into learning mode? Does a light come on/turn off? Does it stop flashing the engine codes or do you just have to assume that it has done it?

Also, agree with Danny above...you're a legend! Never met you but i'm sure you've deserved a pint or two from me!

Hi all, that is top info and nice and clear. After performing a timing chain repair I would just like to add a bit about the ERG blanking. Due to the amount of carbon contaminated thick oily mess heald within my inlet manifold blanking is only half the job. To get a positive result and allow the cylinders to breath uniformly can I suggest that the inlet manifold needs to be removed and cleaned throughly. My no1 cylinder was almost completely blocked! How and fuel was being used efficiently is a wonder. There was so much crud also heald around the ports into the head the air flow to at least the first two cylinders would have been drastically reduced causing chocking and no doubt a reduction in power. Yes it will take a couple of hours but well worth it from what I saw in mine. I hope this helps as the ERG blaning is the start, not the cure.

Thanks Keith - plenty to think about there, and when I get a moment I will go through the list. By "waste gate" I meant EGR, which I thought was doing the same thing as a waste gate. Shows how much I know about automotive engineering - a tad different from the marine version...
I guess you consider I should blank it off, even though I am in a hot country? I'm not bothered about emissions in this country providing the truck doesn't smoke.

Thanks for that - very helpful. During the reset I was offered one group of FIVE digits repeatedly. 10 dashes, 4 dots, 9 dots, 10 dots and 3 dots. How does one read this 049?3...? Any clues?

Hi Geoff, I've moved your post to the guide in the D40 section.

Fault codes only come in four digits. It may be that there is more than one code coming up ( two groups of four flashes). Have another go if not try a code reader.

Do you have any symptoms other than the fault code(s)?

Morning,
There were definitely five groups in the cycle. Is zero always represented by 10 long dashes or can it be either dashes or dots, with the long dashes simply representing the first digit in the string? First indication of a problem was a Limp Mode experience three weeks ago which I did not understand but fluked a fix by switching engine off.

Yesterday, I removed, inspected, cleaned and replaced the mass airflow sensor as detailed in this stream. It was really quite clean. I was hopeful that this would do the trick. Sadly, the light came back on again today and I did the peddle dance again to reset the system. I have a code reader on the way.

The long flashes represent the first number in the sequence. Don't forget there is a slight pause between groups of fault codes.

I'll send you a PM

Hi guys

Just like to thank you keith for such a great write up as today my malfunction light cane on and when ive followed these steps i had the code 0409 flash. It relates to the EGR so i presume some dirty emisions went through it or it is just got to the point were the dirt has built up a lot..
i have reset it and has now turned off.. so i will see if it comes back.. and if it does i will consider blanking it off. Do you guys agree? And also by blanking it off does it not cause the light to come on again if it doesnt detect flow or air/gases??

Cheers

Storm Grey 07 Aventura, Sat nav, reverse camera installed. pretty standard lots of To-do´s...
