Turbocharger Turbine Inlet Temperature (Calculated) – Data Valid but Above Normal Operational Range – Least Severe Level
|Fault Code: 2346
Turbocharger Turbine Inlet Temperature (Calculated) – Data Valid but Above Normal Operational Range – Least Severe Level. Turbocharger turbine inlet temperature has exceeded the engine protection limit.
Fuel is limited in an attempt to decrease the temperature of the exhaust gas entering the turbocharger.
ISB, ISC, and ISL with CM2150 – Electronic Control Module
The exhaust gas temperature is calculated by the electronic control module (ECM). The exhaust gas temperature is derived by the ECM, based on engine operating conditions such as intake manifold air temperature, engine speed, injection timing, intake manifold pressure, and fuel flow.
There is not a physical exhaust gas temperature sensor in the system. The exhaust gas temperature is a calculation of exhaust gas temperature before the turbocharger and is also know as turbine inlet temperature.
Note: Some original equipment manufacturers (OEM) have pyrometer gauges mounted in their chassis. Pyrometers measure turbine outlet temperature or the exhaust gas leaving the turbocharger and will not equal the value monitored with the exhaust gas temperature parameter with INSITE™ electronic service tool.
Conditions for Running the Diagnostics
This diagnostic runs continuously when the engine is running.
Conditions for Setting the Fault Codes
The ECM detects that the calculated turbine inlet temperature is greater than a calibratible value.
Action Taken When the Fault Code is Active
- The ECM logs the fault code immediately when the temperature threshold is exceeded.
- Fuel is limited in an attempt to decrease the temperature of the exhaust gas entering the turbocharger.
Conditions for Clearing the Fault Code
The ECM will turn off the amber CHECK ENGINE light immediately after the diagnostic runs and passes.
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.
This fault code is an information fault code indicating that the engine has been derated for high turbine inlet temperature (exhaust temperature). No troubleshooting is necessary for this fault code. It is only an indicator that the engine power was derated to limit the exhaust temperature.
If the condition continues to exist, Fault Code 2451 will become active.
