P0047 – Variable Geometry Control Solenoid Valve Circuit Low Input Vehicles with variable geometryturbocharger MMC L200 IV



OPERATION

  • Power is supplied to the variable geometry control solenoid valve (terminal No. 2) from the engine control relay (terminal No. 3).
  • The engine-ECU (terminal No. 17) makes the power transistor in the unit be in “ON” position, and that makes currents go on the variable geometry control solenoid valve (terminal No. 1).

  • FUNCTION

  • The variable geometry control solenoid valve controls the vacuum pressure introduced into the variable geometry actuator, using the signal from the engine-ECU. This allows the boost pressure to be adequate for the driving conditions.

  • TROUBLE JUDGEMENT

  • Battery positive voltage is 8 – 16 V.
  • 2 seconds later after the engine has started up.
  • Variable geometry control solenoid valve output voltage is 0.4 V or less (driving current is abnormally low).

  • PROBABLE CAUSES

  • Failed variable geometry control solenoid valve
  • Open/short circuit or harness damage in variable geometry control solenoid valve circuit or loose connector contact
  • Failed engine-ECU
