Error codes driving me crazy......

Recommended Posts

Looks like re-wrapping my ignition/injector harness did not solve my problems. I am still getting intermittent misfires. Always on cylinders 5-7 and usually only when the engine is warm. I have changed plugs and coil packs and also checked for vacuum leaks. The latest codes are

- Value below lower limit value, test conditions are not-completed, fault is currently active and is not causing a DTC light
System Off Idle Bank 2 - Value below lower limit value, test conditions are not-completed, fault is currently active and causing a DTC light

Any ideas anyone?

P1132 Oxygen sensing adaptation

Possible cause of fault
- Incorrect main charge signal
- Fuel pressure too low
- Fuel injector doesn't open completely
- DME control module faulty
P2228 Ambient Air Pressure Sensor - Below Limit
Possible fault cause
- DME control module faulty

The P2228 is pretty odd - if you clear it does it come back?

Were the ignition/injector wires damaged?

Worst case put a PIWIS on it and run full diagnostics.

Hi Loren

P2228 did occur once before but seems to be an aberration as it does not usually come back after reset.

After another couple of hours on it, I discovered that when I disconnect the injector for 6, 5 stopped firing. This might not be surprising if either of the two injector wires are daisy chained but after reconnection cylinder 6 which was hardly firing at all has now started behaving itself with only an occasional error and now cylinder 5 is not firing. At this point it definitely feels like a short somewhere in the injector harness. Any ideas what to try next?

I already did that. My Misfires are all across one bank (5-8) and at different times, higher misfire rates on individual plugs. Playing with the harness appears to make no difference. I am starting to think it may be a grounding issue, an O2 sensor or a problem with the DME. I have never had to give up on this kind of issue before but I think this is one for a PWIS readout - Durametric just isn't giving me enough data to target the source. It is very frustrating

After looking at the wiring diagrams the fickle finger of fate pointed at fuse 8 in the E box. Oddly enough, this fuse feeds coils and injectors for 5,6, 8 and 3. In going back to look at my errors almost all of the misfires causing the DTC light were on 5 and 6 and now 8. I removed the fuse (again), replaced it (again) but with significant wiggling and now the errors have gone. I have been disappointed before but it seems likely that this circuit is the culprit. I will put some miles on her tonight to see if the problem stays fixed before ranting here again
