Jeep Commander Turbo Actuator Problems
The Jeep Commander 3.0CRD from 2005 – 2010 is fitted with a HELLA electronic turbo actuator. The electronic turbo actuator replaces the vacuum actuator found fitted on earlier models and is now controlled by the engine ECU to regulate the boost pressure from the turbocharger. This turbo of turbo actuator is actually a very common failing part and replacement units can be very expensive.
Below is a list of common symptoms related to a faulty turbo boost actuar:
- Loss of power under acceleration
- Intermittent loss of power under acceleration
- Smoking on acceleration
- Fault codes pointing to turbo actuator
- Fault Code: 0046 – Control Circuit Performance
- Actuator arm not moving
- Engine light on
- Limp mode
If your local dealer has diagnosed a faulty electronic turbo actuator then you can expect a bill upwards of £1200 for a new replacement unit. You will be buying a complete turbocharger + actuator unit together because the actuator is not an item that is sold separately. The new replacement will come with a 12 month warranty and being such a common failing part you can expect that it may fail again at some point in the future.
