So me, being the handing man that I am, purch. If an injector is borderline and so is a wire in it's harness, this code will set. The lean fuel mix error may be accompanied by rough idling, engine misfires, hesitation during acceleration and overall poor engine performance. I have a 2003 Dodge Grand Caravan Sport. . The injectors are broken up into two banks electrically, bank s is the rear 3. The fuel is under enough pressure to penetrate your skin.
What repairs can fix the P0205 code? Noid lights are useful tool for when an injector seems to test okay with the voltage test, but issues are still present. Fuel system cleaners, such as Seafoam, can be used in some cases to help clear blocked fuel injectors before they are replaced unnecessarily. If they are not the same reading then replace the injector. Make sure the electrical connector to the 5 fuel injector does not have corrosion causing it to not make electrical contact and that the wires themselves are intact. I hope you have taken the steps to prevent occurrences on all other 5 injector wires.
An air leak or any of the above will cause an erroneous signal. If the resistance is excessively low or high it will set this code. Great that you found it and shared with others. I have the exact same problem with my 06 5. I find it's best to take it off and spray it with electronics cleaner or. Then, the mechanic will test the injector for voltage to confirm proper operation. I experiment on my own vehicles but do not endorse the modifications that I make to my vehicles to be used on others.
P0205 code on vehicles with electronically controlled automatic transmissions, the 3-4 shift solenoid is responsible for actuating the hydraulic circuits to activate clutches or bands that change gears inside the automatic transmission. If the resistance is higher than one ohm it will set this code, and that injector needs to be replaced. If the code indeed comes back, the mechanic will proceed by conducting a visual inspection on the injector circuit and the fuel injector itself. The problem must be fixed before the vehicle switches back to normal operation from failsafe mode. Changed my fuel filter reprimed it with automatic transmission flood picked up runs fine cleared codes and it's doing well. If you still don't see anything it's likely you have an injector that has windings increasing in resistance when they are hot. That creates a vacuum throughout the entire fuel storage system.
Dave answered 6 years ago So I haven't done anything to the truck, it's been dry with no rain for the last few months and the truck is acting fine. It should have 10 volts or more. This code is very similar to P0200, P0201, P0202, P0203, P0204, P0206, P0207, and P0208. You could use an ohm meter to test the continuity of the wiring from the computer's plug, and to see if the control wire is grounded, but a better test involves using a scanner to pulse that one injector, then listen for the clicking. You would also see a corresponding drop in fuel pressure if you had a pressure gauge installed. However, the system was troublesome, misunderstood by customers, and a rash of unpredictable failures led to the technology being quickly retired. P0205 can have some symptoms that are cause for concern such as the engine dying while driving.
It was the purple wire on the bottom left corner, of the 5 and 6 injector plug, on the outside of the valve cover. The usual suspect for this problem is the injector itself, but it always pays to conduct a thorough diagnosis before replacing it. On the way home from second mechanic, the car stopped running. The computer notices the canister is empty when it detects a leaner condition all the vapors are used up and it resumes normal fuel delivery. Need help with a P0205 code? YourMechanic offers certified mobile mechanics who will come to your home or office to diagnose and repair your vehicle. Code 201 references injector number 1 but it goes further and can refer to a problem with any injector on that side of the engine.
If they are not the same reading then replace the injector. If the problem is not enough fuel, the culprit may be dirty injectors or fuel filters, a weak fuel pump or a leaky fuel pressure regulator. I checked all my wiring running to the injectors, and found an exposed wire on the 5 injector, don't think it was grounding out on anything, but when I separated it from the rest of the wires, and taped up the exposed area, the truck started running great. Now don't ask yourself; What should you do with P0205 code? If you do not have access to a tester, swap the injector with another one and see if the code changes. An injector wouldn't just fix itself so I dunno, it's working so I'm not complaining. These steps should always be followed to avoid unnecessary repairs, and save time and money. Chrysler has extremely little trouble with their injectors.
I don't know if this fixed any problems, and I am getting worried. Boomtower answered 2 years ago Having the same issue code 2149 and it's still popping even after replacing the injectors wiring harness and the pigtail off the wiring harness. GuruZ3468 answered about a year ago The issue persists even with new fuel filter, primed lines and injectors. If the code changes, then change the injector. Also had a passager side battery was weak replaced it. This will set a code in itself, however, a faulty oxygen sensor does not automatically condemn the sensor.
