Thanks to krashed my friends wife pulled these codes:
= RF2560 History and PC1406
Krashed

I'm also assuming that you tie up the electronics from the passive struts along with the caps from the org struts also??

Thanks

RFA -- Remote Function Actuation (the module that noticed the problem)
B2560 - RKE Message Validation Error (the problem)

P1406 - EGR (Exhaust Gas Recirculation) Valve Pintle Position Circuit (the other problem)


No, you dont use those elecronics that they give you at all. They don't work. You just use the old dampering valves off the old OEM shocks and struts.

Hope this helps.

Krashed ..1st thanks 2nd
I think I posed the q wrong. I've never replace struts so I'm trying to get all the info I can so when I have it done I can relay the info,infact probably bring these replies. That is why I'm so inquisitive. So you take the dampening valves off and put them on the new strut? What I thought you meant was use the ele from the old stuff(tieing up the valve part and tie up the ele from the new strut.

If thats wrong pls re-explain

thanks

There is no place to put the dampering valves on the new struts. So you just leave them plugged in and tie them off in an out of the way place. The electronics that come with the new passive struts do not work, so you can throw them away if you want to. Passive shock and strut companies have not yet found the right electronics to give out for the N* RSS system (other than the CVRSS system which was available from 97 up). This is because the RSS module measures the inductive frequency of the valves rather than the resistance that the flow of electrons encounters.

The right electronic would look like a coil of wire. It is called an inductive coil because it induces (or creates) an electromagnetic feild. One of the properties of inductive coils is that it will store a charge and dump it like a capacitor, but unlike a capacitor it doesn't dump the whole charge. This dumping and refilling process creates a frequency called an inductive frequency. The RSS module measures this frequency to tell if the valve is working properly. The valve works by having the electromagnetic feild of the inductive coil pull open a springloaded valve, then when less wattage is put through the wire the magnetic feild becomes smaller and the spring closes the valve.

If you are changing the front struts, make sure you get a front end alignment afterwards.

Krashed..
Thats why I was confused. From looking at the pic I thought the ele with the passive was connected and it would have to be tied off also.
Next thing the 2560 error .What the heck does that mean????????
Your the man..
thanks

If the remote on the keychain still works, I wouldn't worry about that code.
RKE stands for Remote Keyless Entry.

If the remote doesn't work then there is a process that you have to go through in order to make the RKE module to recognise that remote. The process has been said on these forums before.

I also have this error in my history, RF2560. Now you state it deals with the Remote Keyless Entry and my remote does work and since its a history code whatever was wrong has already corrected itself? Does the RF stand for Remote Function?

I think that, that code could just be from parking close to someone with the same car as you. Then they unlocked their doors with their remote and the signal was also intercepted by your car, but your car didn't recognise the signal so your doors didn't unlock and it stored the code.... I don't know this for sure though. If anyone knows otherwise, please correct me.

I would just clear it. You clear it by going into diagnostics mode and when it says "PCM?" you press the fan down button until you reach RFA. Then you press the fan up button to go into that submenu and the fan down button again until you reach "RFA CLEAR CODES?" then the fan up button again to clear that code. After that you can turn the key off to exit diagnostics mode.

Also yes RF stands for Remote Function. RFA stands for Remote Function Actuation.

Hope this helps.

Thanks alot Krashed898 you helped me to clear up some of the haunted history codes and their meanings.
