p1601

anyone had this? ce popped up when going to lunch, we just turned around and got the other car. when i scanned it, i got 1601. fsm has some pinouts to check for continuity/voltage, but i am hoping just unplug/plug, maybe just the connection. perhaps someone else has an easy fix?

That's a weird code. I'd try pulling the negative battery terminal for 5 minutes to reset everything.

If that doesn't work, unplug/plug (or at least check) those two big harnesses that click onto the back of the rear intercooler.

Lastly, I'd try unplugging the big pigtail on the computer, inspect for any corrosion or anything, then plugging it back in.

One of those three things probably would fix it. If not, go from there.

fixed. loose positive cable. i am not sure if the cable end is worn, or the post is too small. i always dress the cable end and the post whenever i have the cables off. i also noticed that the starter sounded different the past few times(car dont get driven a lot), and i was thinking the starter was starting to go. also, it took a bit longer to crank. i remember going over a bump, and the ce illuminated. mechanically, these cars seem to be very sound, and most of the problems have all been vacuum or electrical related. so, anyone know how i can slightly increase the size of the battery post?

Lead is so malleable that you could take some thin gauge solder wire and make windings on the post, and then if needed squeeze it down a bit with a suitable pliers. Clamping normally should get a tight fit.

Another possibility is to deform the edge of the post just a bit, once the clamp is already installed and tightened. This should discourage it from slipping off, sort of like peening a bolt over a nut. I'd lightly tap a center punch placed near the very edge of the post, tilted outward toward the clamp, being careful not to transfer to much force to the post so as not to damage the internal connections on the post. You should be able to do this at just one place. It will make a bit of the post project into/onto the clamp.

actually, i found the battery also to be bad. i tried charging it overnite, and it would not hold a charge. had it scanned, came up bad, so i just came back from getting a new one. i generally get the charging system checked every fall, winter is when the batteries like to fail. there is a difference when the car's electrical system is up to par.
