DTC detecting condition

Possible cause

P050A COLD START CONTROL (Cold start idle air control system performance) ECM does not control engine idle speed properly when engine is started with pre-warming up condition.
  • Lack of intake air volume
  • Fuel injection system
  • ECM
P050B COLD START CONTROL (Cold start ignition timing performance) ECM does not control ignition timing properly when engine is started with pre-warming up condition.
P050E COLD START CONTROL (Cold start engine exhaust temperature too low) The temperature of the catalyst inlet does not rise to the proper temperature when the engine is started with pre-warming up condition.

DTC CONFIRMATION PROCEDURE

  3. Check 1st trip DTC.

Follow the procedure “With CONSULT” above. With GST


Follow the procedure “With CONSULT” above.

Is 1st trip DTC detected? YES >> Proceed to EC-339, "Diagnosis Procedure".

NO >> INSPECTION END

Diagnosis Procedure

1.PERFORM IDLE AIR VOLUME LEARNING

Perform EC-140, "Work Procedure".

Is Idle Air Volume Learning carried out successfully? YES >> GO TO 2.

NO >> Follow the instruction of Idle Air Volume Learning.

2.CHECK INTAKE SYSTEM

Check for the cause of intake air volume lacking. Refer to the following.

Is the inspection result normal? YES >> GO TO 3.

NO >> Repair or replace malfunctioning part

3.CHECK FUEL INJECTION SYSTEM FUNCTION
