C0164 Lagonda 2.5-litre Diagnostic Trouble Code

C0164 Lagonda 2.5-litre code definition:
C0164 is a kind of OBD-II Diagnostic C-Chassis Diagnostic Trouble Code for Lagonda 2.5-litre.

C0164 Lagonda 2.5-litre is described as Oxygen Sensor Circuit No Activity Detected (Bank 1, Sensor 1). This means there's a problem in the front oxygen sensor on Bank 1, as the O2 sensor is inactive. The spark should have a light tan color. If the sensor probe comes with white and chalky parts, this means it has been lagging between switching phases, and should be replaced.

Symptoms

Symptoms of a C0164 Lagonda 2.5-litre diagnostic trouble code may include:
  • Vacuum leak on the engine
  • Reduction in engine performance, especially at low RPM levels
  • Engine surge
  • If the DPF is not cleared the ECU will revert to the "Limp Home Mode" until the situation is corrected
Place of C0164 in engine

Possible Causes :

  • Fuel with a large percentage of sulfur will clog the DPF quickly
  • The Mass Airflow sensor will also cause this problem. Mass Airflow circuit malfunction.
  • Rarely - faulty Powertrain Control Module (PCM-programming required after replacement)

Common Misdiagnoses

  1. Control Module Throttle Actuator Position Performance Problem
  2. Air Conditioning (A/C) Clutch Feedback Circuit High Voltage Problem
  3. Cruise Vehicle Speed/Set Speed Difference Too High Problem
  4. Kick-Down Switch Failed Short Problem
  5. Park/Neutral Postion (PNP) Switch Circuit Engine Torque Signal Circuit Problem

Repair Processes :

Look for damage to the tank indicating impact that may have damaged the fuel pump or sender. If the engine displays a miss and there wasn't a code, determine which cylinder is misfiring. If the exhaust manifold is visible, spay or pour a small amount of water on each cylinder exhaust port. Water will evaporate immediately on good cylinders and slowly on the missing cylinder. If this can't be accomplished pull the plugs and check the condition. If the scan tool has that capability, and the scan tool can operate the IMRC valves, then the problem is either resolved and a simple code clearing is all that's left or a new PCM would be called for.
