Cummins ISX15 CM2250 (2010-12) Fault Code: 1843 PID: 101 SPN: 101 FMI: 3 Crankcase Pressure Circuit- Voltage Above Normal or Shorted to High Source

Circuit Description
The electronic control module (ECM) provides a 5 volt supply to the crankcase pressure sensor on the sensor supply circuit. The ECM also provides a ground on the sensor return circuit. The crankcase pressure sensor provides a signal to the ECM on the crankcase pressure sensor signal circuit. This sensor signal voltage changes based on the pressure in the crankcase filter.

Component Location
The crankcase pressure sensor is located in the crankcase filter assembly.

Conditions for Running the Diagnostics
This diagnostic runs continuously when the keyswitch is in the ON position.

Conditions for Setting the Fault Codes
The electronic control module (ECM) detects that the crankcase pressure signal voltage is greater than 4.75-VDC for more than 10 seconds.

Action Taken When the Fault Code is Active
The ECM illuminates the amber CHECK ENGINE lamp and/or the Malfunction Indicator Lamp (MIL) immediately when the diagnostic runs and fails.
A default value for the crankcase pressure reading is used.
Conditions for Clearing the Fault Code
To validate the repair, start the engine and let it idle for 1 minute.
The fault code status displayed by INSITE? electronic service tool will change to INACTIVE immediately after the diagnostic runs and passes.
The ECM will turn off the amber CHECK ENGINE lamp after the diagnostic runs and passes.
For On-Board Diagnostic (OBD) engines, the ECM will turn off the MIL after three consecutive trips where the diagnostic runs and passes.
The Reset All Faults command in INSITE? electronic service tool can be used to clear active and inactive faults, as well as extinguish the MIL for OBD applications.

Shop Talk
The crankcase pressure sensor shares supply and return wires in the engine harness with other sensors. Opens and shorts in the engine harness can cause multiple fault codes to be active. Before troubleshooting, check for multiple fault codes.

Possible causes of this fault code include:

Open return circuit in the engine harness, connectors, or sensor
Signal wire shorted to sensor supply or battery voltage.

Possible Cause:
1) ECM failure
2) Engine Harness
