OBD-II Trouble Code Technical Description
A Camshaft Profile Control Circuit/Open Bank 1
What does that mean?
This is a generic powertrain diagnostic trouble code (DTC) and typically applies to OBD-II vehicles. Vehicles affected may include but is not limited to Volvo, Chevrolet, Ford, Dodge, Porsche, Ford, Land Rover, Audi, Hyundai, Fiat, etc. Although generic, the exact repair steps may vary depending on year, make, model and powertrain configuration.
The camshaft is responsible for the valves’ positions. It uses a shaft with lobes integrated in the design to a specific measurement (depending on engine manufacturer and model) to, when mechanically timed properly, precisely open and close valves at the optimal amount/speed. The crankshaft and camshaft are connected mechanically using different styles (e.g. belt, chain).
