Code 52
« on: May 10, 2018, 07:50:13 PM »

I have a 93 NA, 5 speed, that has been parked in my garage for 6 years. When I last drove it there was a CEL with a code 52. I am going to get it back on the road this summer and was wondering if anyone has any suggestions for me to troubleshoot this. Any help would be greatly appreciated, thanks in advance.
 This is my second Capri , 1st was a 91 turbo. Actually it is my 3rd the first was my 1st new car a 1973 Capri 2600, still miss it!

Are you sure it's a 52?

This list shows it as a non-capri Ford code for power steering pressure, I don't think we even have a PS sensor on the Capri

Thank you for the quick response. I was able to find an old write up sent to me some time ago, pardon the coffee stains.
I’m having trouble figuring out how to attach the documents
In short it says from 94 manual which includes late 93’s Code 52 Back up power supply Voltage Boost Failure, possible air bag failure

Is your check engine light on or is the airbag light on?

If it's the engine light, then the code would probably be 25.

We do have a pressure switch inside our power steering pump.

Itīs an old post but i know the problem. I have the some one 2 times after winter and empty batterys.
The ecu from the airbag have 4 big capacitors and some small. The dry out with the time and then the needed loaded voltage isnīt get the right value in a definated time.
changing this capacitors would help me. ( 1.st time a take an old ecu from a Ford Probe.. Itīs the same one, 2nd time a change the capacitors and the unit would be run perfectly )
