  • Faulty Engine Control Module (ECM)

|How to Fix the P10D6 Code?

Start by checking the "Possible Causes" listed above. Visually inspect the related wiring harness and connectors. Check for damaged components and look for broken, bent, pushed out, or corroded connector's pins.

|What is the cost to diagnose the P10D6 code?

Labor: 1.0

The cost to diagnose the P10D6 code is 1.0 hour of labor. The auto repair's diagnosis time and labor rates vary by location, vehicle's make and model, and even your engine type. Most auto repair shops charge between $75 and $150 per hour.

|What are P10D6 code possible symptoms?

  • Engine Light ON (or Service Engine Soon Warning Light)

|What Does the P10D6 Code Mean?

The Charge Air Cooler (CAC) temperature sensor 2 is a variable resistor. The sensor is located at the CAC outlet before the air flow valve. Its signal is used by the ECM to measure the temperature of the intake air exiting the CAC. The Engine Control Module (ECM) supplies 5 V to the signal circuit and a ground for the low reference circuit. The ECM continuously monitors the sensor signal for an excessively high or low voltage, or for a start-up signal that is not in correlation with the intake air temperature (IAT) sensor 3 start-up signal and fuel temperature sensor. The Diagnostic Trouble Code (DTC) will be set when the CAC temperature sensor 2 signal is warmer than 300°C (572°F) for greater than 6.5 s.
