Checking Diagnostic Trouble Codes (DTC)

Not to be confused with the other thread in this section on using diagnostic mode.

Turn the key off for 30 seconds. Do the following within 5 seconds: Key ON, OFF, ON, OFF, ON (don't start the engine). Keep your eye on the CEL. The display will either say "Wait" and then the CEL will start blinking; or the CEL will start blinking right away. In either case, count the number of blinks between each long pause (b P bb P bbbb P b P bbbbbb P b). The codes are in two-digit numbers so the previous sequence would be 12, 41, 61. 12 = start and 61 = end. 12 may or may not happen.

This is a general list of codes. Different models and years may have slight variations.

---- 12 Beginning of Diagnostic Check ----
21 Loss of Synchronization
22 TPS Circuit: Open or Short to Ground
22 TPS Circuit: Short to Battery
23 RAM Error: Defective ECU
41 Air Temp Sensor: Open or Short Circuit to Sensor Voltage (ECU)
41 Air Temp Sensor: Short Circuit to Ground
42 Engine Temperature Sensor Circuit: Short to Ground
42 Engine Temperature Sensor Circuit: Open or Short to Battery
45 Barometric Pressure Sensor: Circuit Low Input
46 Barometric Pressure Sensor: Circuit High Input
51 Injector 1: Open Load
51 Injector 1: Short Circuit to Ground
51 Injector 1: Short Circuit to battery
52 Injector 2: Open Load
52 Injector 2: Short Circuit to Ground
52 Injector 2: Short Circuit to Battery Yes
54 Engine Temperature Lamp: Open Load
54 Engine Temperature Lamp: Short Circuit to Ground
54 Engine Temperature Lamp: Short Circuit to Battery
55 Diagnostic Lamp: Open Load
55 Diagnostic Lamp: Short Circuit to Ground
55 Diagnostic Lamp: Short Circuit to Battery
56 Pump Relay Open Load
56 Pump Relay Short Circuit to Ground
56 Pump Relay Short Circuit to Battery
58 Cooling Fan: Open Load
58 Cooling Fan: Short Circuit to Ground
58 Cooling Fan: Short Circuit to Battery
---- 61 End of Diagnostic Check ----

To erase a code, remove the negative battery cable for 30 seconds. If they are still there after you hook the cable up and check again, that means they came right back.

On my '04 700 EFI it will display the specific code numbers. You do not need to read the flashes.

You can run this mode even if there are no codes present. It will finish diagnostic mode with the word "END" if no codes IIRC.

It appears on my XP there is no consumer method to enter diagnostics if there are no pending codes. You can toggle to screen if Check Engine display goes live. IIRC you toggle to code screen with yellow override button on left handlebar.

I don't see that code anywhere. Does that model display the trouble code or do you have to watch for flashes?

On RZR forum they say it might be:

"TPS set error"

TPS (throttle position sensor) is possibly out of adjustment.

thanks. that makes sense with the other 22 code coming up. I had a bad wire to the TPS. didn't see 27 in my manual. I read it off the display (no flashes) and strangely enough the codes came 22, 51, 52, 27 not 22, 27, 51, 52 like I expected. anyway, all is good.
