Troubleshooting:

The ECM will log the diagnostic code and the ECM
will trigger a snapshot. The check engine lamp will
illuminate while this diagnostic code is active. The
electronic service tool will show a SHORT during
the Injector Solenoid Test. The automatic Cylinder
Cutout Test will not work.

Test Step 1. Engine Overspeed


A. Check the ECM for indications of an engine
overspeed.

Engine misfires

B. If there are indications of an engine overspeed,


check the cluster gear for proper alignment.
Also check the cluster gear for damage. Refer
to Testing and Adjusting, Gear Group (Front)
- Time.

Low Power

Expected Result:

The injector will not operate while this diagnostic


code is active.

The cluster gear is properly aligned and there is no


damage to the cluster gear.

Troubleshooting:

Results:

Perform the following diagnostic procedure:


Injector Solenoid Circuit - Test

OK Proceed to Test Step 2.

Possible Performance Effect:

Not OK The cluster gear is not aligned correctly


Results:

or there is damage to the cluster gear.

OK STOP.

Repair: Align the cluster gear or repair the cluster


gear.

Engine Speed Signal
Calibration (42)
SMCS Code: 1912-038
Conditions Which Generate This Code:
The Engine Control Module (ECM) detects the
following conditions:

A timing calibration has been successfully


completed.
The primary engine speed/timing sensor and the
secondary engine speed/timing sensor are off by
more than 3 degrees.
System Response:
This code will not be logged. The check engine
lamp will illuminate while this diagnostic code is
active. The ECM will use the default timing.
Possible Performance Effect:
The engine may run rough when this code is active.

Run the engine until the engine reaches operating


temperature.
Verify that the repair eliminates the problem.
STOP.

Test Step 2. Accident


A. Determine whether the vehicle has been involved
in an accident.
If the vehicle was involved in an accident, then
the cluster gear may have been damaged.
B. Check the cluster gear for damage.
Expected Result:
The cluster gear is not damaged.
Results:

OK Proceed to Test Step 3.


Not OK There is damage to the cluster gear.
Repair: Repair the cluster gear.
Run the engine until the engine reaches operating
temperature.
Verify that the repair eliminates the problem.
STOP.

Test Step 3. Cylinder Head


A. Determine whether the cylinder head was
removed.
B. If the cylinder head was removed, the backlash
for the camshaft may be out of the specification.
C. Check the backlash for the camshaft. Refer to
Testing and Adjusting, Gear Group (Front) Time.
Expected Result:
The backlash for the camshaft is within
specifications.

Repair: Refer to Troubleshooting, Engine


Speed/Timing Sensor Circuit - Test.
STOP.

Not OK There is a problem with the installation


or the wiring of the engine speed/timing sensors.
Repair: Install the sensors properly or repair the
wiring.
Run the engine until the engine reaches operating
temperature.
Verify that the repair eliminates the problem.
STOP.

Results:

OK Proceed to Test Step 4.

STOP.
System Response:

Test Step 4. Engine Speed/Timing


Sensors
A. Check the engine speed/timing sensors for
proper installation. The engine speed/timing
sensors can not be interchanged.
B. Verify that the sensor wires are connected
properly. Refer to the electrical schematic for
proper wiring. Make sure that the positive
terminal on the ECM is connected to the positive
terminal on the engine speed/timing sensors.
Also, make sure that the negative terminal on the
ECM is connected to the negative terminal on
the engine speed/timing sensors.

This code will not be logged. The check engine


lamp will illuminate while this diagnostic code is
active. The ECM uses default timing.
Possible Performance Effect:
The engine may run rough or the engine may emit
white smoke in the exhaust.
Troubleshooting:
Perform the following diagnostic procedure: Engine
Speed/Timing Sensor - Calibrate
Results:

Expected Result:
The engine speed/timing sensors are properly
installed. Also, the engine speed/timing sensors are
wired correctly.
Results:

OK

OK STOP.
