After I take my card to diagnostic come out with, engine control module 1 | fault 3 and transmission control module fault 1 which I was able to erase but third one active /static requirement malfunction lamp on active 05668, I wasn’t able to erase and the engine light still on. Sometimes it feels like a little bit of a lack of power. Any suggestions? Is this a big problem or can it be solved easily? Many thanks.

This code is an informational code that is telling you that there are other codes in the TCM that you need to address.

So, have you driven the vehicle and then check the TCM for codes again?

Basically, there is an issue happening that clearing the codes is not correcting so the codes that you are getting in the TCM or that are talking about the TCM are what we need to address.

The TCM fault 3 that you erased, is there more detail that you can provide on this code? TCM issues are going to cause lack of power at times so I would suggest we start with this. Can you get a picture of the scan tool screen when this is active, and we can go from there?

Also, we don't have a manual on this engine which means it is most likely not in the USA, so we are not going to be able to consult a manual. We don't have a manual on vehicles that are not offered in the USA, but I am sure we can figure out the best direction to go.

Thanks

Okay. That is a good thing, but time will tell. Basically, what happens is when you have that information code and you clear the other codes that are causing that informational code to be there, then when the others don't reset, the light will turn off.

So that means the issue is not currently happening but if it does then the light will turn back on, and we need to start with all the codes that are in the system.

Let us know if they return.

Thanks
