For a valid inspection, the CEL must illuminate with key on and extinguish at engine run (if no emission faults), not associated with safety...

However it is your dime, how you handle it is yours alone..

no they can't, CEL is a mandatory requirement for a safety and emissions inspection there. Same as an ABS light.

Even in the UK they are mandatory for an MOT.

I couldn't sleep, so i went out and took the cluster out. Easy job!
But I will never get a "CEL" as the little LED was loose and fell of trying to wiggle it in place. Either i Will get a New cluster or I will re-solder the little LED.
The pointer for the RPM, can it be pulled out? Anyone tried that?

P0010 is flagged when the crankshaft position sensor is not aligned with the camshaft sensor. Sometimes the problem is easy to solve (connections, sensor fault etc) but sometimes it's caused by wear and stretch in the valve timing gear - this can be expensive to fix. It wouldn't be the first time that someone has avoided an expensive job by disabling the check engine light. In the first instance - delete the code and check if it re-appears. It's very important on VVi engines to change the engine oil at the prescribed intervals - using a good quality oil of the correct specification.

Have you confirmed it faulty, or just guessing based on a code...??

It requires a scope to verify CAM/Crank correlation... Wave form?

It's just based off the code on the reader, it says P0010 "A" Camshaft Position Actuator Circuit (Bank 1).

I don't know where to find it to see if the wires damaged and i have a new sensor here.

Parts cannon approach, this doesn't work, and gets very expensive very quickly.

I believe that people interpret this as a cam sensor code, and can be caused by faulty cam sensor, a faulty VVT solenoid, blocked oil filter screens in the passages, or a faulty VVT actuator.

in any case, further diagnosis is required, and in this case will require a scope to compare timing and drive waveforms to the cam actuators and the cam sensor output and the CKP sensor reference


P0010 is a generic OBD-II code indicating an issue with the engine control module (ECM) detecting a variation in the mechanical timing between the crankshaft and bank 1 camshaft. The timing issue is typically detected during higher RPMs of the engine when the ECM attempts to adjust valve lift or timing during higher speeds.
or in this case, cam timing via the VVT solenoid. ECM is calling for cam timing adjustment and not seeing it.

VVT Solenoid, where is that located? Watched a lot of YouTube videos about that one associated with the code. I don't know anyone with a scope, might just drive it to the mechanics then.. Thanks for heling out. 👍😊
