P003a-61

Post by Newwave19 » Fri Apr 27, 2018 3:42 pm

Hi, just wondering what the additional numbers after a code mean. For example, I have a 2010 ford kuga with a error code of p003a-61. I can see lots of info on the p003a-61, but nothing on the -61, does this narrow the fault down further?
My systems are as follows. When the code was first read, there was no noticeable problems with the turbo, but now I have a bit of lag on acceleration.

Thanks
Phil

Hi neweave
Did you ever manage to fix your problem. I have exactly the same code. I’ve replaced the turbo position sensor but the code keeps coming back
I’m hoping I can fix it :(

doubt you will get an answer , he seems to be the same as most others that join they make one post wait a day or 2 for a reply then never come back because they want spoon feeding and telling what to do step by step (which 9 out of 10 times could be solved with a quick search ), unless they have further problems which they cant get fixed cheap .
dont expect to be spoon fed you will learn nothing .
do search ,its a wonderful thing and saves everyone a lot of time .
i am the same as you just a forscan user still learning .

Very true Andy. I did some work yesterday on the Kuga and found that the clamp holding the cat to the turbo was very loose with no movement to tighten it. Replaced the clamp and did a forced regen. Took it out last night and no EML light as yet. I’ve notnplugged it in to check it on forscan yet but will be interesting to see if the problem reappears

hope it was that simple fix :) , always good if its just a pressure leak causing the fault codes to pop up .

I truly hope so mate. I took it for a drive and tried all all ranges and give it a few heavy accelerations but it seemed fine. Will see if the misses manages to break it again tomorrow ha ha
