P013C Code:

OBD-II Diagnostic Powertrain (P) Trouble Code

Possible Cause

The most common causes of this P013C code being stored are due to a defective input speed sensor or output speed sensor. Other common causes include shorted, open, corroded, or damaged wiring circuits or connectors.

Common Symptoms

  1. As the input shaft is turned (by the engine) the electro magnetic input/turbine speed sensor uses the spaces between the splines to provide voltage signal interruptions in the circuit
  2. Repair or replace any open, shorted, damaged, or corroded items as required and retest the system to make sure that repairs were successful
  3. Many late model diesel fuel injectors are individually numbered for electronic identification
  4. If either the reference voltage or ground circuits are open, use the digital volt/ohmmeter to check for continuity (disconnect all related control modules from the circuit before checking circuit resistance or controller damage may occur) and resistance in all circuits

P013C Troubleshooting

If there is a clicking noise when you attempt to start the engine and the engine does not crank, it typically means there is something wrong with the battery, such as a low or discharged battery or corroded or loose battery cables. If the engine cranks when you attempt to start the car, but fails to turn over, this may mean there is a problem with the fuel or ignition. Other common reasons an engine may fail to start include a failure of the starter motor relay, a clogged fuel filter, a defective fuel pump or an ignition switch failure. P013C OBD2 may also be triggered by faults earlier down the line. For example, a dirty MAF sensor might be causing the car to overcompensate in its fuel-trim adjustments. As a result, oxygen sensors are likely to report fuel mixture problems.

How to turn off P013C check engine light ?

There are two ways to turn off the check engine light:

A repair technician can do so once repairs have been made.
The OBD II can automatically turn it off when it fails to detect the problem after several diagnostic cycles.
