P245A code

7 posts in this topic

Truck is my dads 09. He's not in good shape health wise so I've been running the truck the last week or two getting it ready to sell. The EGR's been unplugged for a few years and has helped a lot, but I plugged it back in so the CEL would go away before I list it and it did as usual and has been out for a few days. Today I got a CEL for a 245A code, something to do with turbo solenoid voltage. I cleared it and it stayed out for now, but it's only been 15 mi. or so. Any idea what it means and what to look for?

Reminds me again why I refuse to get rid of my 99 :wink:

Thanks for the link. Plenty of information and possible causes. I'm guessing it's probably sooted up like everything else on a DPF equipped truck. Hopefully get to look over the weekend.

No. It a voltage issue. The ECM is sensing a voltage problem in the EGR circuit. Nothing to do with sooting up. It the fact that the ECM is seeing a voltage out of range. Either shorted to ground or open lead.

I mean the servo is trying to move the butterfly but can't because it's sooted up and needs cleaned therefore causing an over draw. At least that's what I understood some had problems with.

Hmmm. Reading through the info on the link provided it seems a dirty EGR can stick open and cause the code. Some had success with a simple cleaning which is why I suspect it. Seems this code can be the result of several issues.
