ECD SYSTEM(for Swirl Control Valve), Diagnostic DTC:P2454 and P2455

DTC Code DTC Name
P2454 Diesel Particulate Filter Pressure Sensor "A" Circuit Low
P2455 Diesel Particulate Filter Pressure Sensor "A" Circuit High

DESCRIPTION

The two sensing chambers of the differential pressure sensor are mounted to monitor the pressure before and after the DPF catalytic converter.

The ECM compares the exhaust gas pressure before and after the DPF catalytic converter by monitoring the pressure using the upstream and downstream sensing chambers of the differential pressure sensor. If the difference between the pressure before and after the DPF catalytic converter exceeds a predetermined level, the ECM judges that the catalytic converter is clogged with particulate matter (PM). When the ECM judges that a partially clogged condition exists, the ECM begins to perform PM forced regeneration.

When the output voltage of the sensor deviates from the normal operating range, the ECM interprets this as a malfunction of the sensor circuit, and sets DTC P2454 or P2455, and illuminates the MIL.

CAUTION / NOTICE / HINT

Note:
  • When replacing the ECM, the ECM needs Registration and Initialization (Click here).

  • After replacing the differential pressure sensor, the ECM needs initialization (Click here).

Tip:
  • When the ECM must be replaced, before replacing the ECM, perform the "Learning Values Save" function using the GTS. Then after installing the new ECM, perform all of the initialization/registrations for the "Learning Values Write" function by following the instructions shown on the GTS display.

  • Read freeze frame data using the GTS. Freeze frame data records the engine condition when malfunctions are detected. When troubleshooting, freeze frame data can help determine if the vehicle was moving or stationary, if the engine was warmed up or not, and other data from the time the malfunction occurred.

PROCEDURE

  1. READ VALUE USING GTS (ADAPTATION VALUE OF DIFFERENTIAL PRESSURE AT PARTICLE FILTER)

    1. Connect the GTS to the DLC3.

    2. Turn the ignition switch to ON and turn the GTS on.

    3. Enter the following menus: Powertrain / Engine and ECT / Data List / Adaptation Value of Differential Pressure at Particle Filter.

    4. Start the engine.

    5. Read the values while revving the engine at high speeds.

      OK

      The values in the Data List change according to changes in the engine speed.
