ECU 001180.16 – Turbocharger Turbine Inlet Temperature Moderately High. John Deere System Advisory.

ECU 001180.16 (ECU 1180.16)

Code: 001180.16

Shortcode: 1180.16


Error code ECU 001180.16 is triggered when the ECU senses that the turbocharger turbine inlet temperature is moderately above the specified limit. While not as critical as extremely high temperatures, moderately high temperatures can still impact turbocharger efficiency and engine performance.


The ECU may limit engine performance to prevent further temperature increases and protect internal components.


  • Inspect Cooling System: Ensure that the cooling system for the turbocharger is operating correctly. Check coolant levels, fan operation, and the condition of heat sinks.
  • Improve Airflow: Verify that the turbocharger and its surroundings have adequate airflow to dissipate heat effectively.
  • Check Turbocharger Operation: Ensure that the turbocharger is not being overworked and is operating within normal parameters.
  • Examine Temperature Sensor: Check the turbocharger turbine inlet temperature sensor for signs of damage or malfunction. Ensure it is securely connected and providing accurate readings.
  • Clean Cooling Components: Remove dust and debris from cooling vents, fans, and heat sinks to improve heat dissipation.
  • Replace Faulty Components: If the temperature sensor or cooling system components are found to be defective, replace them to restore proper cooling and temperature monitoring.
  • Reset ECU and Monitor Temperature: After addressing the overheating issue, reset the ECU to clear the error code and monitor the turbine inlet temperature to ensure it remains within the specified range.


Maintaining optimal turbocharger temperature is crucial for ensuring system reliability and performance. Regular maintenance of the cooling system and ensuring proper airflow can help prevent moderately high temperature issues.
