Cummins ISX11.9 CM2250 (2010-12) Fault Code: 1962 PID: SID 27 SPN: 641 FMI: 15 VGT Actuator Driver Over Temperature (Calculated)- Data Valid But Above Normal Operating Range- Least Severe Level

Circuit Description
The VGT is electronically activated by the VGT actuator. The VGT actuator is a smart device and receives information via the J1939 data link from the primary engine control module (ECM). The VGT actuator performs its own diagnostics and reports malfunctions back to the primary engine ECM using the J1939 data link.

Component Location
The VGT actuator is located on the turbocharger bearing housing.

Conditions for Running the Diagnostics
The diagnostic runs continuously when the keyswitch is turned ON.

Conditions for Setting the Fault Codes
The fault code will log when the internal temperature of the VGT actuator exceeds 125?C [257?F] continuously for 30 minutes.

Action Taken When the Fault Code is Active
The ECM illuminates the amber CHECK ENGINE light immediately when the diagnostic runs and fails.
Conditions for Clearing the Fault Code
To validate the repair using a Diagnostic Road Test, utilize a route that incorporates both stop-and-go city driving and steady state highway driving. It may be necessary to load the unit for certain diagnostics in the ECM to run.
To validate the repair using a Chassis Dynamometer Test, utilize a routine that incorporates acceleration and motoring events, steady state highway operation, and load. This will simulate normal driving and allow the diagnostics in the ECM to run.
The fault code status displayed by INSITE? electronic service tool will change to INACTIVE immediately after the internal VGT actuator temperature drops below 125?C [257?F] and the diagnostic runs and passes.
The ECM will turn off the amber CHECK ENGINE lamp after the diagnostic runs and passes.
The ?Reset All Faults? command in INSITE? electronic service tool can be used to clear active and inactive faults.

Shop Talk
This fault code will be inactive when the vehicle is in the shop because the VGT actuator temperature has cooled down. Troubleshoot multiple inactive counts of this fault code as an active fault code.

Also check for exhaust leaks blowing on the VGT actuator. Repair any external leaks.

Possible Cause:
1) ECM Calibration
