P0240 - Turbocharger/Supercharger Boost Sensor 'B' Circuit Range/Performance -- This diagnostic trouble code (DTC) P0240 will set if the boost pressure sensor signal is above the predicted range. -- The boost pressure sensor responds to pressure changes in the intake manifold. This pressure is created by the turbocharger and changes with accelerator pedal position (APP) and engine speed. The engine control module (ECM) uses this information to assist in diagnosis of the barometric pressure (BARO) sensor and to provide engine overboost protection. The boost pressure sensor has a 5-volt reference circuit, a low reference circuit, and a signal circuit. The engine control module (ECM) supplies 5 volts to the boost pressure sensor on the 5-volt reference 2 circuit, and provides a ground on a low reference circuit. The boost pressure sensor provides a signal to the ECM on a signal circuit relative to the pressure changes. The ECM monitors the boost pressure sensor signal for voltage outside of the normal range. The ECM calculates a predicted value for the boost pressure sensor. The ECM then compares the predicted value to the actual signal.

Possible causes: Boost pressure sensor harness is open or shorted - Boost pressure sensor circuit poor electrical connection - Faulty boost pressure sensor - Faulty Turbo/Super Charger - Engine over temperature - Ignition misfire exceeds the calibrated threshold - Faulty Knock sensor (KS)

Hello tenspeed I am still having problems finding code p0240. The ford service tech states p0234 as a supercharger boost condition which I believe do not have and po243 supercharger boost bypass solenoid circuit malfunction but no p0240.
