Variable Cam Timing Over-advanced (Bank 1) The comprehensive component monitor (CCM) monitors the VCT position for an over-advanced camshaft timing.
The test fails when the camshaft timing exceeds a maximum calibrated value or remains in an advanced position. Cam timing improperly set No oil flow to the VCT piston chamber Low oil pressure VCT solenoid valve stuck closed Camshaft advance mechanism binding (VCT unit) P245A DTC is a check of the VCT unit.
As long as the throttle plate remains closed, the idling speed and quality is controlled by the PCM via the idle control valve, and as can be seen from the above it should be clear that idle control on a gasoline engine is a complex affair. For instance, if the engine is started in sub-zero temperatures, the PCM will command the idling control valve to allow less air to enter the engine to enrich the air/fuel mixture to create a condition which is roughly analogous to how chokes worked on carburetted engines to control idling in cold weather.

For p245a exhaust gas recirculation cooler bypass control circuit/open check engine light is perhaps the most troubling of lights because it could mean so many different things, from you didn't screw the gas cap on tightly enough to look out for pistons flying through the hood and into the stratosphere. The easiest way to find out what this light is telling you is to hook your vehicle up to a scan tool. P245A error code diagnostic tool looks a little like an oversized calculator and plugs into a communication port inside the car. After you instruct it to perform the scan, it speaks p245a exhaust gas recirculation cooler bypass control circuit/open with your car's computers to find out exactly what's prompting the light to turn on.
P245A 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.
