Well, I would start with all the codes that were for low voltage.  Think back what have you done recently that involved anything electrical.  The only thing I can think of is the shift light.  I would start there and check all the connections and make sure nothing can or is shorting.

Shift light is tied into the ignition circuit, so I highly doubt that's the culprit.

Randy, I'll mention that to the tech at the dealership when I take it in tomorrow.

HMMMM, Randy was at MMM7 and so was U-238... How could Randy have known unless HE DID IT!  I call Sabotage!  Everybody better check their cars... Randy said himself he doesn't need much sleep.  I wonder what else he did while we were all sleeping ??

Car is still the same, starts out fine, then starts to run less and less boost. Also, threw a new code on the way home, P0101. It showed up twice, and it was the only code.

What kind of intake are you running?   Check to make sure the intake to Turbo housing coupling is not loose. Also check your charge tube clamps

The only things on fuse #41 are the two cam actuators and the turbo wastegate and bypass valve.  Fuse #33 has the MAF, Evap, and the heater circuits for both O2 sensors....#33 is probably ok...otherwise you would be getting low ref voltage codes on the o2's as well.

P0030 is the O2 code that would have popped if #33 was blown....it would also be P0102 not p0101

Willdo. Leaving for the dealership first thing tomorrow morning, let's hope it's a simple fix.

Just got the word on the problem, it's the wasegate, just like Randy figured. Turns out they have to replace the entire turbo, can't just buy the wastegate. Everything will be covered under warranty, and the new turbo asembly should be covered under warranty.  :yay:

U-
Glad everything worked out!  For others that may deal with this,  ( I had this on a F550 dump truck) the Turbo is considered part of the exhaust and therefore covered by a longer warranty than the standard 3/36 or even 5/50.  I hadn't realized this would be the case, but we are in year 6 of a 3/36 with Ford and they didn't even blink at replacing the turbo, intercooler and some plumbing when our turbo diesel spit it's parts.  Not to say U is at that point, just a reference for future.
(could that only be in California? he thinks to himself as he types his thoughts out loud...)

U,
Glad it worked out for you.

Nope, I'll be dropping the car off once they get the parts all in. In the meantime, they said I can drive the car as normal, but just to go easy on it.

Many thanks to Randy and Lyndon for all their help in troubleshooting this issue. Randy, I guess this means I'll just have to buy more parts from you...

Oh yeah, I'm really pretty happy they were able to figure out what it was so easily. Parts should be in tuesday or wednesday, I'll drop off the car when they do, they're providing a rental.

Excellent news for you U238....but for "down the road" it doesn't bode well that we would have to replace the entire turbo if the wastegate fails  :mad:

Yeah, I was thinking the same thing. Though, I suppose you could buy a stand-alone system like many Civic people run. No idea what would be involved in getting something like that up and running on our cars.
