Engine Brake Actuator Circuit 1 – Voltage Below Normal or Shorted to Low Source
|Fault Code: 2183
Engine Brake Actuator Circuit #1 – Voltage Below Normal or Shorted to Low Source. Low voltage detected at the engine brake solenoid number 1 signal circuit.
Engine brake on cylinders 1,2, and 3 can not be activated.
ISL with CM2150 – Engine Brake Circuit
This circuit can be used to control either an exhaust brake or an engine brake depending on the application. The electronic control module (ECM) controls engine brakes on cylinders 1, 2, and 3 by sending a signal on the engine brake solenoid number 1 signal circuit. If an engine brake is installed, there will be a jumper harness from this connector to the engine brake pass-through connectors on the rocker lever housing.
The engine brake solenoids are located under the valve cover. The engine brake solenoids are controlled through the engine harness from the ECM.
Conditions for Running the Diagnostics
This diagnostic runs when the keyswitch is in the ON position and when the pulse width modulated device is getting energized or de-energized. In some cases the diagnostics can also run at some fixed intervals.
Conditions for Setting the Fault Codes
The engine brake 1 circuit pulse width modulated signal is not detected to be system voltage when the pulse width modulated signal is turned on.
Action Taken When the Fault Code is Active
- The ECM illuminates the amber CHECK ENGINE light immediately when the diagnostic runs and fails.
- The engine brake 1 circuit will be disabled.
Conditions for Clearing the Fault Code
The ECM will turn off the amber CHECK ENGINE light and the fault code state will become inactive immediately after the diagnostic runs and passes. The fault code can also be cleared with INSITE™ electronic service tool.
Verify the electronic control module (ECM) calibration is correct. Check the calibration revision history found on QuickServe® Online for applicable fixes to the calibration stored in the ECM. If necessary, recalibrate the ECM. Refer to Procedure 019-032 (ECM Calibration Code) in Section 19 in the corresponding Troubleshooting and Repair Manual for the engine being serviced.
Possible causes of this fault code include a short circuit to ground in the engine harness, connector, or engine brake solenoids.
