P 0 0 4 3
OBD-II Diagnostic Powertrain (P) Trouble Code For Engine Intake Valve Control Solenoid Circuit Low Ambient Air Temperature Sensor Circuit Low Injection lump Fuel Metering Control 'B' High (Cam/Rotor/Injector) Exhaust Gas Recirculation Sensor B Circuit High

The poor running symptoms are consistent with a MAP sensor malfunction. In addition, in some cases, a bad MAP sensor will not throw a code. Again, the ELD code likely represents a separate wiring issue.

P0043 OBD-II Diagnostic Powertrain (P) Trouble Code Description

P0043 OBD-II Trouble Code Oxygen Sensors (O2S) or Heated Oxygen Sensors (HO2S) need to reach a minimum operating temperature of 750 degrees F to produce an accurate voltage signal. The faster the heated oxygen sensor reaches t P0043 code.

Reason For P0043 Code

The reason of P0043 OBD-II Engine Trouble Code is Ambient Air Temperature Sensor Circuit Low.

P0043 code on vehicles with electronically controlled automatic transmissions, the 3-4 shift solenoid is responsible for actuating the hydraulic circuits to activate clutches or bands that change gears inside the automatic transmission.
