DTC P0506 refers to the actual engine idle speed not being within range of the commanded engine idle speed. If there are any other DTCs present those must be fixed first.

This can be caused by an ISC (Idle Speed Control) motor sticking.

Other possible causes of this code are:
- incorrect TCC (Torque Converter Clutch) operation
-accessories that require additional engine torque to operate - including amplifiers, security systems, etc. that can cause additional electrical load.
- Restricted exhaust system
-any other mechanical problem that may affect engine speed.

    P0506 on 2003 expedtion


    P0506 - Idle Air Control (IAC) System RPM Lower Than Expected

    This P0506 code is one that's sometimes triggered on vehicles that have electronic throttle control. That is, they don't have a regular throttle cable from the accelerator pedal to the engine. They rely on sensors and electronics to control the throttle. In this case, the P0506 DTC (diagnostic trouble code) is triggered when the PCM (powertrain control module) detects an engine idle speed that is lower than the desired (pre-programmed) RPM.

    Potential Symptoms: Most likely the only thing you'll notice is the idle speed is lower than normal so it will likely be rougher. There are potentially other symptoms as well. Of course, when trouble codes are set, the MIL (malfunction indicator lamp, a.k.a. the check engine light) illuminates.

    Causes: A P0506 DTC trouble code may be caused by one or more of the following:
    * A vacuum leak
    * An air restriction in the intake air path or exhuast
    * A faulty positive crankcase ventilation (PCV) valve
    * Damaged/failed/dirty throttle body
    * Internal engine problem
    * Failed PCM

    Possible Solutions: This DTC is more of an informational code, so if there are any other codes set, diagnose them first. If there are no other codes, inspect for vacuum leaks, restrictions, and damage. If there are no symptoms other than the DTC itself, just clear the code and see whether it returns.

    Hope helps.

    My cadillac deville has the following engine codes when hooed up: P0106, P0121, P0171, P0174, P0335, P0340, P0385, P0442, P0506, P0506, P0507, P0601.


    click on the below links for code details.
    P0106

    P0121

    P0171

    P0174


    P0335


    P0340

    P0385

    P0442

    P0506

    P0507

    P0601.

    all of the above codes seem to have a common cause, they all list a bad ecm (computer) as being a cause, and the last code P0601 points specifically to a bad computer. sorry for the bad news, hope this helps.
