I just replaced the turbo...
I just replaced the turbo I on a 2010 Dodge Cummins. I went to recalibrate the old actuator which was working fine before hand. The calibration wouldn’t go through and kept saying failed. Went ahead and bolted it on to see if it would work as it should. No movement at all from it.
I’m getting p00af, p0046, u0075. If I’m not mistaken. I’m getting proper ground and power to the vgt actuator. Ecu is commanding the actuator to move as it should. What gets me is it worked as it should of and all I done was removed it and went to plug it in and recalibrate it and nothing. Auto zero stays at 0% while desired percentage says at 5%

From what I can tell the u code is from a disturbance in the can signal coming from the vgt actuator. That code comes back as soon as I clear the codes. The two actuator codes come back after the four drive Cycles. Actuator isn’t trying to do anything. My question is more or less is the u code from the actuator issue causing a disturbance to the can signal.

The monitor for this U code error detects disturbances on the J1939 Data Link which contains the following nodes: VG Turbocharger, O2 Sensor Module and the Powertrain Control Module (PCM). Yes the actuator can cause this code.

Have you ran into a actuator just dying from unplugging it?

No I have not had one fail from just unplugging it. I can see the connector or wiring possibly getting damaged and now having a resistance issue.

Exactly my thought but I have inspected the wiring on the actuator and harness and have found nothing. If one failed calibration would it cause it not to operate? Before auto zero was 50%, commanded went threw the full percentage as it should. Desired didn’t sweep the full percentage but did operate because a exhaust gasket blew and was wedged stopping the veins from full operation.
I installled the new turbo and went to prealign the actuator and could not get it to pass. It hummed for a split second the first attempt. Then didn’t do anything for the next several attempts. Decided to try to install it to see what it would do. Even key on no movement. Auto zero is at 0%, ecu commands normally, desired stays at 5.0%. Can drive it this way.I didn’t drop or bang it. Simply removed laid in table then after the job was finished went to calibrate.Has proper power and ground supply. My lab scope doesn’t work so I can’t do that step. Only thing I can figure is something has shorted out internal. What are your thoughts? If you need anymore info just ask.

One other option we can do is go through the diagnostic steps. You mentioned other codes but you were not sure if they were current or old. Can you scan it again?

What Customers are Saying:

I AM VERY GLAD THAT I TOOK A CHANCE ON YOUR PROBLEM SOLVING SKILLS. I WAS SUCCESSFUL IN REPLACING THE FUEL PUMP. MY TRUCK RUNS LIKE A CLOCK. IT RUNS LIKE THE DAY I BOUGHT IT. NO LUNGING FORWARD, THE TURBO REACTS THE SECOND I STOMP ON THE GAS, AND IT HAS A LOT MORE POWER AND EVEN SOUNDS BETTER TO ME. IT SAVED ABOUT $500.00 BY DOING THE WORK MYSELF. I GIVE YOU ALL THE CREDIT FOR YOUR DIAGNOSING THE PROBLEM, JUST FROM THE SYMPTONS I GAVE YOU OVER THE e MAIL. I WILL USE YOUR WEB SITE AGAIN AND REFER MY FRIENDS. THANKS SO MUCH FOR THE HELP.
