PTF 000190.19 – Engine Speed Sensor, Fault

PTF 000190.19 (PTF 190.19)

Code: 000190.19

Shortcode: 190.19


This error code is generated when the ECU control software cannot determine the engine speed and, as a result, cannot provide the CAN bus with any data. A replacement value is transmitted, generating this diagnostic trouble code in the PTF control software. This fault also generates a diagnostic trouble code in the ECU control software, which takes priority.


When this code is detected, the control software may exhibit limited or no functionality.


  • Inspect Engine Speed Sensor:
    • Verify the functionality of the engine speed sensor using diagnostic tools.
    • Replace the sensor if it is found to be faulty.
  • Check Sensor Wiring:
    • Inspect the wiring and connections to the engine speed sensor for damage or loose connections.
    • Repair or replace any defective components.
  • Update ECU Software:
    • Ensure the ECU control software is up to date.
    • Update the software if necessary.
  • Verify CAN Bus Communication:
    • Use diagnostic tools to ensure that the engine speed data is correctly transmitted over the CAN bus.


Maintaining a functional engine speed sensor and reliable CAN bus communication is crucial for the control software’s performance. Regular checks and timely replacements can prevent these issues.
