2009 focus SES CEL P2004

Hello guys and gals. New to the forum here, and hoping to learn some stuff here.

I have a code thrown of P2004 intake manifold runner control valve stuck open B1.

I was wondering if any of you have any specific knowledge regarding the process of tracking down this code.

I have seen to check vacume lines to the imrc, the imrc, and possibly a few other more expensive routes.

If anyone has any assistance with the 2009 SES model that would be appreciated.

Thanks all.

Probably a simple fix, It most likely is the solenoid that controls the tumble flaps. Nothing bad will happen with the light on, but check into getting a new IMRC solenoid. They can be had for relatively cheap.

Thats what I am thinking it is a 2009 with 108,000 miles. Seems about right timing wise.

Don't bother buying parts 'till you check it out, one bad vacuum line is enough from experience.

I have traced both vacume lines to and from the imrc and the look good no cracks or split ends. I also checked power to the imrc and it is correct for both states. So I believe it to be either the imrc or the actuator.

Next step is to apply vacuum on the solenoid to actuator hose and see if it both pulls to position & holds it without losing vacuum.

hi,

I have the same problem. The hoses do seem to be holding vacuum and the arm does move into position on engine start.

Is it still possible this could be the solenoid if the arm is moving on engine start? If not , what else could it be

thanks

Two possibilities I see, and not all that easy to check them out.

First is intermittent operation, so it doesn't ALWAYS move when commanded. Had that with a solenoid that eventually quit entirely myself.

Second would be from the actuator not reporting the movement properly, or not all the time. Could be tougher to prove.

Every time i pop the hood to check, it is in the 'down' position so i haven't recently seen it in the not-moved position.

I picked up this solenoid and installed it about 2 years ago after first seeing this light. It seemed to work for a while but now its in a state where the light stays on if i don't clear it out. If i clear it out it might go 2-3 starts before coming back on.

I captured freeze frame data from an OBD reader, i don't know if that matters at all.
