    Hi got an intermittent misfire, just pulled this code


    17771 - Cylinder 3 Ignition Circuit: Short Circuit to Ground
    P1363 - 35-10 - - - Intermittent

    any ideas?, could it be the plug? or the coil ?

    :sob:

    sounds more like the ignition driver itself

    Sits atop the airbox.

    The ECU cant "see" the coils, so for it to notice a problem it must be the driver i recon.

    there are two modules there, one for each bank, swap them over and see if the fault moves. That should help eliminate the ICM
