Code 43 indicates a fault in the ESC (electronic spark control) system. It usually means the knock sensor has failed, or the wiring to the knock sensor is faulty. When this fails it causes the computer to retard the spark timing to protect the engine, resulting in stalling, poor performance and reduced mileage.
