P0654 Engine Speed Output Circuit

P0654 Ford OBD-II Trouble CodeDescription:

OBD Trouble Code P0654
Engine RPM Output Circuit
What does the code mean? OBD-ii Code P0654 definition:
The Instrument Panel Cluster (IPC) supplies a voltage to the Engine Speed Output circuit. The PCM creates the Engine Speed Output signal by rapidly grounding this circuit via an internal switch called a driver. The other components on this circuit recognize the voltage being pulled to ground as an indication of engine speed. The driver supplies the ground for the component being controlled. Each driver has a fault line which the PCM monitors. When the PCM commands a component ON, the voltage of the control circuit should be low (near 0 volts). When the PCM commands the control circuit to a component OFF, the voltage potential of the circuit should be high (near battery voltage). If the fault detection circuit senses a voltage other than what is expected, the fault line status changes causing the DTC to set.
