Hi my name is ***** ***** I will be happy to assist with this today.In some cases I may need more info to assist better.I apologize for any delay.

The first set of codes you have (p0201 through P0206) is for fuel injectors 1 through 6 circuit failure.Code P1420 indicates a fault with the air pump switch over valve,code P1400 indicates EGR vacuum transducer fault,code P0443 indicates fault with purge control valve,code P0446 indicates fault with canister shut off valve.

If all of these codes came up and issues occurred at the same time it is very rare for all of these components to fail at the same time.This indicates that there is either an engine wiring harness fault leading from all of these components to the engine computer (this can be common if wiring is breaking/coming apart or shorting out) or that the engine computer itself is at fault internally needing replaced.I have seen both occur here.

I would have the engine wiring harness checked over leading to the computer for any issues.If no issues are found then I suspect the engine computer itself needs replaced.

If more help is needed, use the reply tab to continue our conversation. If no further assistance is needed, kindly rate my service,your 5 star rating is appreciated.You can rate at any time and we can continue to work on your question as this will not close out your question.Keep in mind in some cases it can be difficult to fully diagnose or help repair your vehicle without seeing it and I work on delivering the best possible answer from what I see to work with.

Thanks Pete

i don't see any damage to the wiring so can you please give me the procedure in testing the ecm

I will post the procedure below for code P0201 which will help lead to see if the ME (engine computer) is at fault.This needs followed to locate the cause here.

Y62y1 (Fuel Injector Cylinder 1)

Check Component Y62 (Fuel Injectors)

Check Component Y62y1 (Cylinder 1 Injector)

Warning! Risk of explosion, poisoning and injury!Fuels are highly inflammable and toxic if inhaled. Fuels may cause skin damage. fuel vapors are explosive, invisible and spread out at floor level; they are toxic if inhaled and produce giddiness and an anaesthetizing effect.

Rules of conduct and protective measures
- Wear suitable protective clothing.
- Pay attention to national safety precautions and regulations.
- No fire, sparks, naked flames and smoking.
- Ensure the work place is adequately ventilated.
- Never drain or pour in fuels over assembly pits.
- Store drained fuel in a suitable and sealed vessel.
- Immediately eliminate any fuel which has flowed out.

First-aid measures
- Clean moistened skin with water and soap.
- Change moistened clothing as quickly as possible.
- If fuel gets into your eyes, rinse out your eyes immediately with water and contact a doctor if necessary.

The problem was the piece of metal that holds the battery in place wasn't bolted down so the positive wire on the battery was coming into contact with it and shorting out. Thank you for the help
