Default 311 cdi fault codes, help please?


I'm new here so please be gentle with me, having problems with my 2004 903 chassis cab 311cdi which is cutting out while belching out lots of grey/white smoke and making a death rattle (very loud diesel knock) when it does cut out. It will start and idle and pull very low throttle but any attempt at increased throttle induces the above.

Fault codes as follows :- P0201, 0202, 0203 & 0204, Excessive current common cable.

P1470, Charge pressure negative control, charge pressure low

P1481 Glow plug fail 1 2 3 & 4

This just came on suddenly, no gradual loss of performance or prior warning, it just cut out and the fault's been there since.

From what I've been able to learn from various internet sources, I've a hunch this is damaged wiring (a short somewhere?), any suggestions as to what & where to start looking and how to effect a decent repair? Is it likely to be wiring and is that section of harness unpluggable to be replaced with OEM new or am I doomed to spend hours with crimping pliers and heat shrink.

Many thanks
