Ford Mechanic: roy, import/domestic specialest replied 7 months ago

what diagnostics have been done???

620

Normal Operation

The PCM monitors the generator output via the generator monitor (GENMON) circuit. The PCM uses the generator command (GENCOM) circuit to command the generator to either increase or decrease output. If the GENCOM circuit (generator control circuit) or the "A" sense circuit are open or shorted to ground, the PCM will not be able to control the generator output. When the engine speed is greater than approximately 2,000 rpm, the generator defaults to a steady voltage output of approximately 13.5 volts and the PCM sends a message over the High Speed Controller Area Network (HS-CAN) to the Instrument Panel Cluster (IPC) through the Body Control Module (BCM) to illuminate the charging system warning indicator lamp.

- DTC P0620 (Generator Control Circuit)- The PCM sets this DTC if the GENCOM circuit or "A" sense circuit is open or shorted to voltage or ground.

This pinpoint test is intended to diagnose the following:

- Fusible link

- Wiring, terminals or connectors

- Generator

- PCM

Ok so the turbo charger didn't go off until the truck was deleted so how do I fix the problems ?
Ford Mechanic: roy, import/domestic specialest replied 7 months ago

you need to have the charging system checked to find the failure. there is no one line answer as diagnostics need to be done to find the failure.

the delete has affected the turbo code. I know you dont want to hear this but I would have never done the delete. that has always caused issues. we always re program back to original.

Because of your expertise, you armed me with enough ammunition to win the battle with the dealer. They are installing a fuel filter and fuel pump at no charge to me.

I do know, after going though this with JustAnswer, that I can somewhat trust my mechanic but I will always contact you prior to going there.

BRNew Jersey
