Trouble code!!!!!!!!! p1693

Truck just threw me a P1693 code: Turbo Charge Control Circuit Malfunction. Just what does this mean, and how do I fix it. Is it safe to still run it with this code? First time I've seen this one.


Thanks guys.

Thats not what that code is...

P1693 is the companion code...it means that there may be another code stored and you need to use a OBDII scanner to extract it.

If I was a betting man I bet it will be P0216....Injection Pump timing failure...

Let us know what happens.

I wonder where guys are getting this notion that a 1693 is a Turbo issue?

I was told 1693 means you have a stored code in the pcu or ecu. Maybe this will help
TroubleCodes.net- engine & OBD2 Trouble Codes and Technical info & Tool Store.

If this is where you got it from it says at the top anything above P1000 is manufacturer specific and might not be right

Actually that P1693 code could be any code really...

Like When I was doing some work on my truck I pull the harness connector apart and forgot... Well it tripped the CEL light... P1689 (If I remember right) and the P1693... After 5 key cycles the CEL light went out. The codes remained. But after 50 (or so key cycles) the P1689 code left and the P1693 remained...

So yes.. Your going to need a ODB II scanner to pull the older codes out... But OBD II scanner can also clear all old codes too... Where disconnecting you battery won't...

OK - I'll bite - what's a "body computer", and what does "cranked on" mean?

I must be getting old - some of this "new terminology" sure seems like Greek to me!

Went to Autozone and had them plug their OBDII scanner up. It was two P0234 codes: Overboost condition. Cleared them out, haven't come back yet. Is there anything in particular that would cause overboost? Cold weather, engine not fully warmed up? I really don't lay into the pedal very much anymore, at least until I get some extra money to fix 'er up the way I want to.

AH, great, no problem then - you either have an overly efficient turbo, or perhaps a borderline MAP sensor - I wouldn't worry about it - other than perhaps check connections to the sensor for corrosion or poor contact.
