SFI SYSTEM(w/ Canister Pump Module), Diagnostic DTC:P050500

DTC Code DTC Name
P050500 Idle Control System

DESCRIPTION

The idle speed is controlled by the ETCS (Electronic Throttle Control System). The ETCS is comprised of: 1) the one valve type throttle body; 2) the throttle actuator, which operates the throttle valve; 3) the throttle position sensor, which detects the opening angle of the throttle valve; 4) the accelerator pedal position sensor, which detects the accelerator pedal position; and 5) the ECM, which controls the ETCS. Based on the target idle speed, the ECM controls the throttle actuator to provide the proper throttle valve opening angle.

DTC No. Detection Item DTC Detection Condition Trouble Area MIL Memory Note
P050500 Idle Control System Idle speed continues to vary greatly from the target idle speed (2 trip detection logic).
  • Electronic throttle control system

  • Intake system

  • PCV hose connections

  • ECM

Comes on DTC stored SAE Code: P0505

MONITOR DESCRIPTION

The ECM monitors the idle speed and idling air flow volume to conduct Idle Speed Control (ISC). The ECM determines that the ISC system is malfunctioning if either of the following conditions is met:

CONFIRMATION DRIVING PATTERN

B005OLGE03

  1. Connect the GTS to the DLC3.

  2. Turn the engine switch on (IG) and turn the GTS on.

  3. Clear the DTCs (even if no DTCs are stored, perform the clear DTC procedure).

  4. Turn the engine switch off and wait for at least 30 seconds.

  5. Turn the engine switch on (IG) and turn the GTS on [A].

  6. Start the engine and warm it up until the engine coolant temperature is 75°C (167°F) or higher with all the accessories switched off [B].

  7. Idle the engine for 5 minutes or more [C].

    Tech Tips

    In order to keep the idling stable, turn off the A/C and all other electric loads and do not perform any shift operations.

  8. Enter the following menus: Powertrain / Engine / Trouble Codes [D].

  9. Read the pending DTCs.

    Tech Tips


    • If a pending DTC is output, the system is malfunctioning.

    • If a pending DTC is not output, perform the following procedure.

  10. Enter the following menus: Powertrain / Engine / Utility / All Readiness.

  11. Input the DTC: P050500.

  12. Check the DTC judgment result.

    GTS Display Description
    NORMAL
    • DTC judgment completed

    • System normal

    ABNORMAL
    • DTC judgment completed

    • System abnormal

    INCOMPLETE
    • DTC judgment not completed

    • Perform driving pattern after confirming DTC enabling conditions

    N/A
    • Unable to perform DTC judgment

    • Number of DTCs which do not fulfill DTC preconditions has reached ECU memory limit

    Tech Tips


    • If the judgment result shows NORMAL, the system is normal.

    • If the judgment result shows ABNORMAL, the system has a malfunction.

    • If the judgment result shows INCOMPLETE or N/A, perform steps [E] and [F].

  13. Accelerate the vehicle to 10 km/h (6.25 mph) or more, and then idle the engine for 20 seconds or more [E].

    CAUTION:

    When performing the confirmation driving pattern, obey all speed limits and traffic laws.

  14. Repeat step [E] 5 times.

  15. Enter the following menus: Powertrain / Engine / Trouble Codes [F].

  16. Read the pending DTCs.

    Tech Tips


    • If a pending DTC is output, the system is malfunctioning.

    • If a pending DTC is not output, perform the following procedure.

  17. Enter the following menus: Powertrain / Engine / Utility / All Readiness.

  18. Input the DTC: P050500.

  19. Check the DTC judgment result.

    • If the judgment result shows ABNORMAL, the system has a malfunction.

CAUTION / NOTICE / HINT

Tech Tips


  • The following conditions may also cause DTC P050500 to be stored:


    1. The floor carpet overlapping slightly onto the accelerator pedal, causing the accelerator pedal to be slightly depressed and therefore the throttle valve position to be slightly open.

    2. The accelerator pedal being not fully released.

  • Refer to "Data List / Active Test" [Engine Speed, ISC F/B Torque and ISC F/B Learn Torque].

  • Read freeze frame data using the GTS. The ECM records vehicle and driving condition information as freeze frame data the moment a DTC is stored. When troubleshooting, freeze frame data can help determine if the vehicle was moving or stationary, if the engine was warmed up or not, if the air fuel ratio was lean or rich, and other data from the time the malfunction occurred.
