Hello, my name is***** you for the question. Can you tell me if the engine seems to run fine below that rpm?

Customer: replied 10 months ago.
The abs light comes on right when it cuts off
Expert:  FIXITMAN replied 10 months ago.

Thank you. The code you are getting is for the variable air induction system. If the manifold is not adjusting from a bad motor or a manifold failure then the vehicle will run like this.

Customer: replied 10 months ago.
Ok solenoid replaced, code off, mechanism now works, but same issue
Expert:  FIXITMAN replied 10 months ago.

Your other code is for a cam sensor problem. Has that been repaired also?

Customer: replied 10 months ago.
No, c1130 is an abs code code C1130 sets when ecm detects engine fuel cut system has failed
Expert:  FIXITMAN replied 10 months ago.

Sorry for not clarifying. I have had this ABS code come up many times, and for some reason it is typically associated with a cam sensor code. Many generic scan tools will not read this cam code though as it only shows as pending and not a hard code.

Customer: replied 10 months ago.
Ok, replaced both cam sensors, and still same issue, nothing changed
Expert:  FIXITMAN replied 10 months ago.

Does the engine lack power up to that RPM when the vehicle is moving? Does your scan tool read live engine data?

Customer: replied 10 months ago.
I have a snap on verdict, what do you want me to check?
Expert:  FIXITMAN replied 10 months ago.

I would like to know what the crank sensor is reading as well as what the air flow meter reads as you rev the engine.

Customer: replied 10 months ago.
Got it! I realized that the battery voltage rises to 17v and that's when it cuts off,so I loaded the system, turned on everything electrical and got the voltage to around 13v and the car drives fine now!

do you think it's a bad alternator?
Expert:  FIXITMAN replied 10 months ago.

If it is overcharging then that will definitely cause this. If it has the wrong battery then this can occur otherwise it is more than likely the alternator itself.
