HI,

It will either be the fuel pressure sensor or the fuel pump control module. Do the following test to determine which

FPCM
DTC P0641 or P06A6 (FPCM)

* ReviewStrategy Based Diagnosis (See: Vehicle > Initial Inspection and Diagnostic Overview) for an overview of the diagnostic approach.
* Diagnostic Procedure Instructions (See: Vehicle > Initial Inspection and Diagnostic Overview)provides an overview of each diagnostic category.

Circuit/System Description

The fuel pump control module (FPCM) monitors the voltage signal from the fuel pressure sensor. These DTCs will set if the FPCM detects that the FRP sensor voltage is out of range.

Conditions for Running the DTC

The engine is running.

Conditions for Setting the DTC

* The FPCM detects that the FRP 5 volt reference is above or below a predetermined voltage threshold.
* The above condition is present for greater than 10 seconds.

Action Taken When the DTC Sets

DTC P0641 and P06A6 are A type DTCs.

Conditions for Clearing the DTC

DTC P0641 and P06A6 are A type DTCs.

Diagnostic Aids

Using the Failure Records data may help locate an intermittent condition. If you cannot duplicate the DTC, the information in the Failure Records can help determine how many miles since the DTC set. The Fail Counter and Pass Counter can help determine how many ignition cycles that the diagnostic test reported a pass and/or a fail.

Circuit/System Testing

1. Ignition OFF, disconnect harness connector of the fuel line pressure sensor.
2. Ignition OFF, test for less than 1.0 ohm of resistance between the low reference circuit terminal 2 and ground.

♦ If greater than the specified range, replace the FPCM.

3. Ignition ON, test for 4.8-5.2 volts between the 5 volt reference circuit terminal 3 and ground.

♦ If out of the specified range, replace the FPCM.

4. If all circuits test normal, replace the fuel pressure sensor.

How can I tell if the code is on the fuel pressure sensor side or the cam sensor side?
Saturn Mechanic: Eric, Automotive Repair Shop Manager replied 26 days ago

Should also have either a P0365 or P340 if on the cam sensor side

Those would be in addition to the P0641
