A P0835 trouble code signifies that the Powertrain Control Module (PCM) has detected a problem with the clutch position sensor circuit. This trouble code is only found in vehicles with a manual transmission, otherwise the vehicle PCM is faulty. Related codes include P0833 and P0834 trouble codes.
When a voltage reading outside of manufacturer's specifications is detected by the PCM from the clutch position sensor circuit, a P0835 trouble code is stored and the Check Engine light illuminates. Mechanics should keep in mind that some vehicle models require multiple failure cycles before the Check Engine light comes on.
A misadjusted or defective clutch position sensor is the most likely cause of a P0835 trouble code. Faulty wiring or connectors is another common cause of this code, including shorted, open, or corroded components.
Symptoms of a P0835 trouble code can range from no obvious signs of a problem to the failure of the vehicle engine to start. In addition, another sign of a P0835 trouble code include the engine starting without the need for the clutch to be engaged.
An advanced scanner, digital volt/ohmmeter, and a manufacturer's wiring diagram for the vehicle are all required tools needed by a mechanic to diagnose a P0835 trouble code. In addition to the necessary equipment, a mechanic needs to perform the following:
The misdiagnosis of the starter solenoid being at fault is a common mistake made by mechanics when fixing this trouble code. By erroneously fixing the wrong part, the P0835 trouble code returns.
While sometimes a P0835 trouble code shows no symptoms of a problem, more often than not, vehicle drivers can expect to encounter problems when starting an affected vehicle. This includes the vehicle starting without having to press in the clutch pedal and in the vehicle refusing to start at all. As such, it is important that a vehicle owner get their vehicle diagnosed by a mechanic and the problem fixed as soon as possible.
