Working on one o’ them fancy new Bravos, Cabrios, or Oasis (Oasises? Oasisi?) and you’re getting the confounding F51 error code? The reason could well be due to an intermittent connection at the Rotor Position Sensor, (RPS).
To correct this, remove and reinstall the connector at the RPS at least three times to clean off any corrosion built up on the connector and RPS due to the intermittent connection. Confirm that the connector is fully seated onto the RPS control upon final connection and verify there are no damaged wires. Replace the electronic control. The upgraded control is less sensitive to intermittent RPS connections.
