C0221 Proton Arena Diagnostic Trouble Code

C0221 Proton Arena code definition:
C0221 is a kind of OBD-II Diagnostic C-Chassis Diagnostic Trouble Code for Proton Arena.

C0221 Proton Arena is defined as Ignition Coil B Primary/Secondary Circuit Malfunction.This code is a generic trouble code, meaning it applies to all vehicles equipped with OBD-II tool, or vehicles made since 1996 up to present. 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 C0221 Proton Arena diagnostic trouble code may include:
  • Possible spark knock (detonation / pre-ignition)
  • Poor fuel economy
  • The engine oil will exhibit dilution from the ECUs attempts to increase engine temperature. Some vehicles advance the fuel injection timing slightly after top center to afterburn a small amount of fuel to increase exhaust temperatures. Some of this fuel enters the crankcase. When the ECU determines the necessity to regenerate the DPF, the service life of the oil be shortened significantly
  • Rich or lean exhaust
Place of C0221 in engine

Possible Causes :

  • The Mass Airflow sensor will also cause this problem. Mass Airflow circuit malfunction.
  • Fuel with a large percentage of sulfur will clog the DPF quickly
  • Defective ECU strategies or components will prevent proper regeneration

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 :

Find out what kind of system you have and verify that voltage to the fuel level sensor is present at the fuel pump wiring harness. 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.

Diagnosing this code requires the engine to be in good running shape, without unmetered air entering the engine. If other codes that relates to misfiring condition, lean running or air entering the engine is present, then you must first fix those error codes before C0221 Proton Arena.

Fortunately, C0221 Proton Arena is a fairly common OBD code, meaning that it applies to all makes and models of vehicles made after 1996.
