P06B8 Trouble Code

OBD/2 P06B8 error code description and symptoms.

The Camshaft Position sensor will signal the Engine Control Module when the #1 cylinder is ready for the spark plug to fire (top-dead-center on compression stroke). The ECM uses the information from this sensor to help calculate fuel delivery and spark timing.

In most cases, the TCM is integrated into a single housing with the PCM. Nevertheless, the section of the module which controls (automatic) transmission function may be powered up separately. In any case, the TCM is typically powered using switched (only present with the ignition switch in the ON, start, or run position) voltage. This circuit is normally equipped with a fuse, fusible link, and/or a relay. Frequently, the PCM and TCM are powered using the same relay albeit by separate circuits. Access to a reliable vehicle information source will yield necessary details of the TCM power circuit for the specific vehicle in question.

P06B8 Error Code Repair Process :

OBD P06B8 code and tailpipe testing are two different approaches to identify vehicles in need of repair. The OBD system looks for broken or malfunctioning emissions control components and kickdown pull relay open or short circuit to ground, while tailpipe tests sample a vehicle's exhaust to see if it is above or below certain prescribed limits. Given the robust nature of today's emissions control components, it is entirely possible for an individual component to P06B8 malfunction without leading to an immediate increase in emissions at the tailpipe. In such cases, other components (like the catalyst) can temporarily compensate for the part that is broken however, these other components can only do double duty for so long before they, too, begin to malfunction. In addition, OBD also monitors for P06B8 and other malfunctions in the fuel system problems that traditional tailpipe tests were not designed to identify. Most state and local areas also include a gas cap pressure test as part of an emission inspection.

Wrench Tool P06B8 is a kind of Powertrain Trouble Code

Powertrain of a modern automobile, comprising engine (with exhaust system), transmission, drive shaft, suspension and the wheels. In a motor vehicle, the term powertrain or powerplant describes the main components that generate power and deliver it to the road surface, water, or air.

Common Causes of P06B8

A common cause of code P06B8 is the failure of Kickdown Pull Relay Open or Short Circuit to Ground, but there are several other possible causes as well, such as ;
