P2013 trouble code definition

The P2013 trouble code is a generic DTC that indicates a malfunction within the intake manifold runner control circuit.

This code is similar to P2005, P2006, P2007, P2008, P2008, P2010 and P2015.

What the P2013 code means

The P2014 DTC is seen when the intake manifold runner control circuit has high system voltage for bank 2. The ECU has tried to control the bank 2 intake manifold runner and detects the high voltage triggering a Check Engine Light to be displayed on the dashboard.

What causes the P2013 code?

  • Wiring harness has an open or short
  • Intake manifold runner control solenoid failure
  • Electrical connection that is very poor
  • Intake manifold runner has become stuck or seized

What are the symptoms of the P2013 code?

  • Symptoms of the P2013 code are generally limited to the Check Engine Light being present.

  • In rare instances the vehicle may run poorly, lack power, and experience low RPM’s.

How does a mechanic diagnose the P2013 code?

  • A mechanic will begin by scanning for codes using a scan tool including history and pending codes.

  • Once all the codes are identified and the freeze frame data is noted, the codes are cleared.

  • After the codes are cleared, a test drive will be done to confirm the fault are present.

  • Once the code reappears the technician will use the scan tool to monitor the operation of the intake manifold runner position and control solenoid for proper operation

  • Lastly, a hand vacuum pump will be used to test the control solenoid.

Common mistakes when diagnosing the P2013 code

The most common mistake is not completing all of the steps or not completing them in the proper order. This can waste both time and money and lead to unnecessary repairs.

How serious is the P2013 code?

  • The P2013 code is generally a minor matter when taken care of promptly.

  • If the intake manifold fails, it can become catastrophic for the engine as parts can get sucked into the cylinders from the runner flaps. This is a very rare circumstance and only occurs when the P2013 code is ignored for a long time.

What repairs can fix the P2013 code?

Additional comments for consideration regarding the P2013 code

An advanced level scan tool is a necessary and helpful tool for diagnosing the P2013 code. These scan tools do much more than just read and clear codes by allowing the viewing of the live data stream from the ECU. This data stream shows us voltage, Ohms, and readings from all of the sensors and solenoids allowing accurate diagnosis to be made the first time.

Intake system cleaners are used to free up the intake manifold runner in cases where it has become stuck. These cleaners remove the carbon buildup and allow the runner to move freely.
