2004 Ford Taurus Repair Question
2004 Ford Taurus OBDII DTC CODE P1633
I have a 2004 Ford Taurus (DOHC Engine). Recently, I blew a fuse, located in the engine compartment. My OBDII scanner read a DTC P1633 (Keep Alive memory voltage too low) and a freeze frame data...
Fuel System 1 OL
Fuel System 2 CL-Fault
The fuse that blew up, Fuse 22, serves the AC clutch relay, Idle Air Control valve and VBATT (vehicle battery supply) for the PCM (power control module). I already replaced the IAC and have isolated the AC circuit and still, the fuse kept blowing up. I also checked for short-circuit in wires and found wires are good...
Does anyone knows what the above freeze frame data means?
I am certain that the PCM is intermittently pulling in high current. If I replace the fuse, I can drive the car and the PCM will clear self tests then all of a sudden, the fuese will blow again.
....my next step is to replace the PCM...but it's quite expensive ($800...). I am not sure if the fault is inside PCM or outside. I want to confirm that PCM is bad....any suggestion. thank you.
Freeze Frame Data -you have a fuel loopng control problem see below
FUEL STAT 1 = Fuel System 1 Status: Fuel system status will display more than just Closed Loop (CL) or Open Loop (OL). You might find one of the following messages: OL-Drive, indicating an open-loop condition during power enrichment or deceleration enleanment; OL-Fault, indicating the PCM is commanding open-loop due to a system fault; CL-Fault, indicating the PCM may he using a different fuel control strategy due to an oxygen sensor fault.
Hope this helps
