P0010-00 - inlet camshaft dephaser, programming of the stops

Post by 508c5 »

Peugeot 3008 1.6 165bhp VF3**************[VIN obfuscated, can be read by forum staff]**************

Hello,

I had a P11A3 fault code (i put up a post a few days ago) and it disappeared after replacing the VVT solenoid (stupid engineers, took me hours...) but this P0010 code popped up (and "check engine" light is on - i can't earse the fault, it is defined as "permanent").

The car seems to run fine , maybe even better than before and i also think that cold starts are quieter.

As the pics from my last post show, the timing chain's tension seems ok.

In my PSA service box, the p0010 wording is different...

In the programmable section of the service box i reprogrammed the dephaser option, the "check engine" light went off but appeared again this morning 😔

Does anyone have a clue?

Thanks

P0010 13 refers to: Inlet camshaft position sensor signal (Camshaft dephasure): Open circuit.

Simply, there's no further info as the sensor circuit is open.

Thanks - the text you quote is the one i saw also on the service box but it isn't the one quoted on the scan (which is the text i quoted on the subject of my post).

Dephaser= vvt?

What does it mean that the sensor's circuit is open anyway? The sensor is new and fastened to the plug...

Yes, that is perfectly possible because you don't have the last 2 digits of the code!

The code I have put up is P0010 13. These full codes provide additional detail. I don't have much detail for this engine unfortunately, but this is all I have on this specific code.

You therefore may have a P0010 XX code which is something different. Does that make sense now?

An open circuit means the current is not flowing. The circuit needs a path, so where there is a break, the current can't flow. So regardless if the plug is connected, it may be a faulty pin that's not making contact, or further back like a break in the wire, or a faulty connection at the other end of the circuit like the engine ECU where the circuit may terminate.

Yes its p0010 00

Ok, so its a different one from the electrical issue you described -13 (i figured that "open circuit " meant what you wrote but didn't want to assume)

Ok, so I managed to get hold of the correct code - same!
Fault Code: P0010
Description of Fault: Inlet variable timing electrovalve control fault: Open circuit. Open circuit on the inlet camshaft dephaser electrovalve power stage (For more than 0,5 s).

Conditions of activation of the diagnostics: The following conditions have to be met:
- Battery voltage between 9 and 15 V
- engine running
- Power relay jammed for more than 2 seconds
Conditions for Fault to clear:
  • Absence of the fault codes P0010 - P2088 - P2089 for 1 s
Downgrade Modes whilst Fault is active:
  • Deactivation of the richness regulation
  • Deactivation of oxygen sensor regulation
  • Deactivation of the adaptation of the inlet camshaft
  • Switching on of the warning lamp and/or warning message: MIL indicator lamp
Symptoms:
  • Lack of power
  • Emissions outside the norms
  • Excessive fuel consumption
Suspect Areas:
  • Engine ECU
  • Electrical harness

Thank you

Still doesn't correspond with the text i get "programming of the stops" - ha???

Also, there is no lack of power (but i cant tell about emissions or fuel co consumption - however, the richness value is optimal - 1)

Yes it does - read the 'Downgrade Modes whilst Fault is active' - 3rd downgrade point in the table and it tells you there that the adaptation is deactivated: 'Deactivation of the adaptation of the inlet camshaft'

In other words it can't do an adaptation because of the open circuit.

Well, good news 🤞

Last night i inspected the vvt area and found the connector disconnected from the vvt port - that explains the "open circuit" ...

I reconnected (firmly), scanned again, deleted the faults, restarted the car and was delighted to see that no light went on, scanned again and scan came out clean. Till now (after driving the car today) no fault light lit up

Hopefully this concludes this quest.

... and sometimes the simplest of things... but at least all sorted.
