The 1980 Aston Martin Lagonda is proof that even fine automobile manufacturers can also make some flaming turds. Normally Aston Martin is on top of their game when it comes to luxury vehicles, but they really dropped the ball with this stepped on this offering. It looks like someone was trying to smash this car at a junk yard and pulled it out of the steely claws of the car compactor in time to leave it smooshed and distorted.
Whatever you do, don’t add a capacitor! It’s a waste of money. You are better off putting your money towards the BIG 3 upgrade to your alternator’s wiring using 0-guage stranded wire. This is known to solve most of the headlight flickering problems while still maintaining the fidelity of your audio system. If the BIG 3 upgrade doesn’t reduce your headlight flickering issue, then you have saturated the output stage of your alternator. An additional battery may slightly help your situation, but it will place added charging stress to your alternator and most likely reduce its life. The last resort is to install a high-output alternator of 160+ Amps. This will remedy all of your electrical problems, but it will require the BIG 3 wiring upgrade.
Here is the scopeshot. Crankshaft Sensor is in blue and Camshaft Sensor is in red with the vehicle running at an idle. What do you think? I think the sensor voltages are nice I see nothing strange. But what about the relationship? This is where building a known good waveform library helps.
In this course you will learn how to maintain, service and repair vehicle mechanical and electrical components as well as service engines, electronic and diagnostic systems, transmission (clutch, gear box and differential) and suspension systems (springs, steering, brakes, wheels and tyres).
Actually this is a P2302 not a P02302 just to get logistics correct. P2302 is a Coil #1 Insufficient Coil Ionization code. This is a very common code with Chrysler products. The poster didn’t leave a VIN or description of engine size or turbo or non-turbo. Either way these vehicles utilize a coil pack design. There is actually two coils so to speak in the one pack. Coil #1 fires cylinders #1 and #4 and Coil #2 fires cylinders #2 and #3. The PCM contains an algorithm that can infer monitored burn time of the secondary pattern to set this code.
