I don't have a lot of experience with the AHU engine but I remember this fault code being caused by the relief valve (within the pump) being stuck open/closed. You can normally unscrew the valve and clean it out/batter it with a hammer to get it moving again. :)

Am guessing here it sounds like you have fitted a secondhand pump that has the same problem as your original unit?
