VGT Actuator – Voltage Below Normal or Shorted to Low Source
|Fault Code: 2384
VGT Actuator – Voltage Below Normal or Shorted to Low Source. Low voltage detected at turbocharger control valve circuit.
Variable geometry turbocharger will go to the open position.
Turbocharger Control Valve Circuit
The electronic control module (ECM) controls the variable geometry actuator position with the turbocharger control valve. The turbocharger control valve controls the air pressure to the variable geometry actuator when commanded by the ECM. ECM commands are sent to the control valve through the turbocharger control valve signal of the ECM engine harness.
The turbocharger control valve is located on the fuel pump side of the engine. It is mounted between the number 5 and number 6 fuel lines on the air intake manifold. Refer to Procedure 100-002 for a detailed component location view.
Turbocharger control valve command can be monitored with the INSITE™
electronic service tool. This parameter represents the ECM command to the turbocharger control valve which in turn controls the variable geometry actuator position.
Possible causes of this fault code include:
- Signal short circuit to ground
- Short circuit to ground in the turbocharger control valve.
