Default Code P1320 won't go away...

Have a 2001 Pathy 150K Miles with code P1320.

I have replaced 3 coils and all plugs, reset light, drive for
10 mins, light comes back on...

Car starts, runs fine, idles fine, no problems at all... light still on though.

Been reading about MAF thinking maybe it's that, but everything
I read says it runs bad with a bad MAF. I run fine

Have read about cam position sensors, that also says when those are
bad, car goes into limp mode. I don't limp, it runs fine.

Any ideas for what else to look at ?

It's very possible that one or all of the other 3 coils. Before replacing any other part, like the MAF, you should replaced the rest of the coils.

More information about the P1320 - Ignition Signal

Thanks for your reply.

Can you tell me if there is a way to test the remaining coils to
see if they are bad ?

When this code popped on Path 01 (P1320) it gave me another code (P0304), telling me witch cylinder was misfiring. So only replaced #4 Coil (20 000 Km ago and no problem)

P0301 is Cylinder #1
Po302 is Cylinder #2
P0303 is Cylinder #3
P0304 is Cylinder #4
P0305 is Cylinder #5
P0306 is Cylinder #6

Good luck finding it

Thanks for the reply. I only get the single code P1320, so no clue as
to which one it is. I just had a mechnic look at it and after much research
and $100 charge he said it's the after market coils.

Guess I need to swallow hard and by new coils from the dealer. I will
update once I do this with the results.

Anyone else with comments, I'm still eager for input. I have a concern
dealer coils won't make a difference..... we will see.

I have seen aftermarket coils throw that code several times. Replacing them with O.E. coils usually fixes the problem.
