This code means there is a loss of cooling fan speed signal.

This could be due to a bad cooling fan, or the fan clutch assembly. This might also make a banging sound as it's kicking on and off, especially at the wrong time or inconsistent times. It's not unusual for this fans to fail.

Please let me know if there is anything else I can do to help.
