What are the symptoms of the P2185 code? On another related note, not to thread jack. Engines may change from one type to another based on different factors, including model year and even geographical region. It doesn't point to a direct fault in the engine, only a general fault in the transmission. No worries, please vote and good luck. Anyways, I continued to fill it until I saw fluid emerging out of the bleeder hole on top of the upper radiator hose. Since then the electric cooling fan is running an awful lot it seems.
However my last problems are these codes and im thinking its wiring again because i did a system clear on all codes and one popped up right after the car started but i am very open to any suggestions and would greatly appreciate any help. Apart from the fact that it is related to a sensor. Usually a Check Engine Light is the only symptom that is observed. The expansion tank is very full, the bobber measure-thingy is all the way up and would go up more by the fluid if it wasn't limited down. Bench testing of this type of sensor requires a multimeter that can be set to ohms and something to heat the sensor up with. Both of these cars shared a 3-cylinder turbocharged direct injection with Valvetronic.
A complete failure will often yield drivability symptoms, but will most often lead to the sensor being a little out of specification from what the computer is expecting to see. Depending on the manufacturer, each sensor will have a different temperature to resistance curve. . Then move to the next error code. Since the transmission controller doesn't have a light attached, it tells the engine controller to turn the light on using this code.
. The cooling system is the system that keep your engine from overheating. I did notice yesterday that fan kicked on as soon as car was started for the day and stayed on. Edited February 17, 2013 by Tuvoc Actually the heater seems fine, you just need to turn the fan up to get decent airflow Went on a 35 mile journey this morning. If the car is cold, the sensor should show how much and vice versa. . Determining which sensor is sensor 1 is not always as simple as it seems.
The code it pops on the reader is P2185 engine coolant tempature sensor 2 circuit high. Most of the engines parts are different in order to produce the extra power. Due to this, they cannot be interchanged between the two. Looking at it today I noticed the sensor plug doesn't have the little clip that locks it in place. You assume the risk of attempting the repair. The M3 uses a S54 engine, which produces much more power than the 325i which has a M54 engine. The other day the check engine light came on.
I am not a mechanic. The code it pops on the reader is P2185 engine coolant tempature sensor 2 circuit high. A low coolant level can lead to many unpredictable symptoms and codes. Note: one of the biggest flaw the intrepid have is that the wire harness to the shift solenoid is in the transmission, surrounded in the transmission oil which corrode the wire harness. You Diesel guys would be ecstatic about that, but I believe that the petrols should be running at 104, I need to check. And I'm not familiar with having to reset the computer. So I'm happy that the engine isn't getting hot, but the electric cooling fan seems to be running far more than it should, which perhaps is down to a sensor fault and is why it isn't reaching 104 if that is what it should be.
The camera shakes, because I shake. P0700 is an informational code only. Referenced Links: Bleed Air Link: Reset Warning Light Link: Lost the vid file, so typos at no extra charge. Some manufacturers information is better than others. I had some work done on the cooling system - water pump, thermostat housing, one of the hoses - and quite an expensive hose at that. For the most part, the answer is no. Car reached 94-95 degrees on the motorway and held there.
By the way, when you fixed the clip, was the car was switch in on or off position. Or is it something else? If resistance values are not within the expected ranges replace the sensor. What causes the P2185 code? P0700 and P0420 are the codes that came up. Do I need a tuneup? Causes More often then not, the cause of this code is that there is a transmission problem of some kind. Ok so as far as my knowledge goes theres only three sensors on the M56 engine as far as the coolant system goes and there locations are, under the valve cover, on the lower radiator hose, and on the coolant expansion tank.
P0700 is a code stored in the engine computer as a flag to let you know there is a code in the transmission computer. I am thinking I need a new Transmission Control module. It was not making contact and sometimes intermittent contact. Whether it be a cold start up condition or fine tuning of the air-fuel mixture. I'm assuming this is overfilled?? I'm thinking you need to siphon or drain some off so when you pressurize the system the first time you're not too full risking no expansion in the tank.
