I posted this question at motor vehicle stack exchange but I believe it's more suited for this.
I've noticed that many computer errors (diagnostic trouble codes PXXXX) in cars use confusing terminology to describe similar issues and I can't distinguish them, for instance here are three different sensor with various issues relating to them.
P0105 Manifold Abs.Pressure or Bar.Pressure Voltage supply
P0106 Manifold Abs.Pressure or Bar.Pressure Range/Performance
P0107 Manifold Abs.Pressure or Bar.Pressure Low Input
P0108 Manifold Abs.Pressure or Bar.Pressure High Input
P0109 Manifold Abs.Pressure or Bar.Pressure Circuit Intermittent
P0116 Engine Coolant Temp.Circ Range/Performance
P0117 Engine Coolant Temp.Circ Low Input
P0118 Engine Coolant Temp.Circ High Input
P0120 Throttle/Pedal Pos.Sensor A Circ Malfunction
P0121 Throttle/Pedal Pos.Sensor A Circ Range/Performance
P0122 Throttle/Pedal Pos.Sensor A Circ Low Input
P0123 Throttle/Pedal Pos.Sensor A Circ High Input
What exactly is meant by Malfunction, Range/Performance, Low Input, High Input and Circuit Intermittent? I've looked all over the place can't find a good explanation for these terms, are they generic terms used for all kinds of electric circuits or specific to cars?
