how much have you driven the van since???

a lot of times it takes a few minutes to adjust from the plug not being there.

I have done many of these and sometimes I have to drive a bit for it to settle down

Expert:  roy replied 1 year ago.

ok, disconnect or unplug number 2 coil and see what happens

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
Nothing different, it stays on for 4 to 5 seconds and then shuts right back off
Expert:  roy replied 1 year ago.

the code is indicating a wiring issue with number 2 coil but may b effecting others as well. check the harness for damage from the plug blowing out and pushing up and out

Roy

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
No damages
Expert:  roy replied 1 year ago.

was there any other issues prior to the plug popping out???

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
No there werent any of the issues
Expert:  roy replied 1 year ago.

without me being there, I am out of ideas and cannot see or touch it.

I will opt out and see if anyone else has any ideas
