What Does P0013 Code Mean?

    OBD-II Code P0013 is defined as a "B" Camshaft Position - Actuator Circuit/Open

    Newer vehicles use a variable timing system to adjust the timing of the intake and exhaust valves in an effort to increase fuel efficiency and performance. The engine control module (PCM) uses a Camshaft Position Actuator to adjust the camshaft accordingly. If the Camshaft does not respond as the PCM requests, the PCM will set code P0013.

    • Decreased engine performance
    • Increased fuel consumption

    Common Problems That Trigger the P0013 Code
