C1261 Code: Meaning, Causes, and Symptoms | OBD2 Codes
C1261 – Left Front Inlet Valve Solenoid Malfunction
C1261 Possible Symptoms
Anti-Lock Brake System (ABS) Warning Light ON,Engine Light ON (or Service Engine Soon Warning Light)
C1261 Possible Causes
Faulty Electronic Brake Control Module (EBCM),Electronic Brake Control Module (EBCM) harness is open or shorted,Electronic Brake Control Module (EBCM) circuit poor electrical connection
The system relay is energized when the ignition is ON. The system relay supplies voltage to the valve solenoids and the pump motor. This voltage is referred to as the system voltage. The Electronic Brake Control Module (EBCM) microprocessor activates the valve solenoids by grounding the control circuit. The Solenoid Valve circuit is internal to the EBCM. The EBCM sets the OBDII code when the commanded state of the driver and the actual state of the control circuit do not match.
