Turbo Vane sensor/solenoid

My 2005 duramax is threwing the p2565 code and was told by the dealer that it is the solenoid that goes out more than the sensor. I have been driving it and have no power issues and mileage is 18-22mpg. I would like to know if I could just by the solenoid and replace it myself and where is it located as I have found the sensor,Whats your thoughts?

Hey dmaxrules, just had the same code practicaly. p2563 and p0046. It seems both are related to your prob. I have been reading about a vane position sensor/solenoid going bad. I don't have a clue how to fix and i hope that someone will post shortly a "how to". It would be appreciated. Good luck.

I have replaced the solenoid and VPS (vein position sensor). The VPS is right on top of the turbo with a small wire coming out of it and a large blue plug on the other end. Easy to replace but expensive. The solenoid is located to the left of the sensor and goes into the turbo horizontally. There is one bolt that holds it in and it is also easy to replace. Not sure on the price cause I had one from another factory turbo. On the LBZ's the code for the sensor is P003A and you will know if it goes bad cause you will only build boost at high rpm's. Hope this helps!

Also despite what others say there is no reflash needed after replacing either of these parts. Just download your factory tune into the truck and drive it around for a bit. It will learn on its own.

i hope this info help ME out too. as i have recent set the 003a code. after not finding out info i wanted and trying different thing the code has not come back on, but drivability of the truck has changed. low boost then all the sudden i can go from 10 psi to 34 psi in a second. i have a friend with a nice "scanner", im going to see if he can plug into the truck and check the censor, if not maybe the dealer can...? otherwise im HOPEING its just the censor that is bad and not something with the turbo itself! any info would be great!! dngrrngriv@gmail.com
