I purchased a used 2006 lly Dmax and shortly after I kept throwing a code for "Turbo Charger Position Not Recognized". I took it to the dealer and they replaced the turbo charger sensor and said that is where the problem was. Well I got the same code about 2 weeks later. After spending about a $1,000 they found nothing. The truck runs fine but the light still comes on intermittantly. I was wondering if anyone could help. Truck is completely stock...as far as I know. What would cause this?

Bad connection, loose ground connection, short to ground, short to voltage or damaged wire in harness. Just got to start testing with a multimeter. May have to wiggle the harness a bit to find it.

This is really really easy. You need a new turbo. The reason this code is coming up is the vains are being commanded to do one this but they cant. The are stuck.

Towmaster I don't have anything done to it yet and the truck has about 58,000 on it now. I bought it with 45,000.

Len Todd the dealer said they checked all the connections and the wiring harness and found resistance in the harness and said it was fixed but I'm still getting a light.

Toypuller Since the truck is an 06 something like the turbo should be under warentee because it comes with a 5 yr power train warentee so that should be covered since its part of the powertrain, no? Do you know of any way to check the vains?

Yes it is under warrenty. We have replaced a few turbos for this concern. They can command them open and closed to see if they stick anywhere. They need to call technical assistance and you should drop it off and tell them you dont want it back until its fixed. EVERYTHING on the engine is covered by the powertrain warrenty. So if you spent 1000. You got taken. Every sensor thats attached to the turbo is covered under the warrenty. I dont know why you didnt just have to spend your 100.00 deductable.

You need to find your build date because it should be covered under warrenty. 5 years from date of build or 100,000 miles.

Where do you locate the build date on the truck. Would the 5 year or 100,000 warranty be good to the second owner?

I have the same question....I believe the 5 year or 100,000 warranty does cover the second owner....

Now i'm aggravated! I asked the dealer if it was covered under warrenty and he told he he could not find anything that would cover that under the warrenty. Why are there no honest people left out there anymore? The second owner should be able to use the warrenty because its the factory warrenty. So if I contact GM do you think I could possibly get reimbursed? The DTC is P2563 or P003A. According to the diagnostic sheet he gave me they tested the VPS (Vane Position Sensor) so I'm assuming that he found nothing with the turbo vane position, like they're not getting stuck.

Yes it would work on the 10th owner. Look in your driver door is should say like 05/05 or 01/05

The time starts when it was first registered-- even if it is a year old! The dealer will have that information.

Since the dealer was of no help I contacted GM and they said they would get back to me on friday and let me know if it was covered under warentee. I'll let you know what they say.

Good, they should take care of you. That is COMPLETE BULLSHIT. I hate dealers that take advantage of people like that.
