Hello,

Thank you for your question, my name is ***** ***** I will be glad to assist you with your concern today.

EC56 is for Intake air temp input sensor high, this could indicate a bad sensor or air temp is overheated/too hot coming in. You could be getting hot air sucked in, air restriction, bad sensor, etc.

Thank you!
