At Bailey’s Diesel, we’ve been receiving an increased number of phone calls for Toyota 1KD, or Toyota Hilux and Prado fitted with 1KD engines, and turbocharger Stepper motor related fault codes, or running engine problems.
Generally speaking, they will throw a code that states faulty turbocharger stepper motor. It can be a bit of a troublesome fault code to solve, because it’s quite common that the Stepper motor driver, which is an external computer system or external ECU from the main ECU, has failed, not the actual stepper motor.
Before replacing a complete turbocharger with the Stepper motor assembly, it is worth ensuring that the external Stepper motor driver is not the issue, before spending the money.
The next situation is that in many instances, the actual Turbocharger itself is fine, but the turbocharger Stepper motor itself has failed. Where previously you would have to replace the entire turbo-charger at a cost of $3,500 dollars, Bailey’s Diesel now has the turbocharger Stepper motor available as a separate, individual item which saves the customer a few grand in the process. It’s a simple solution to a simple problem.
