What is code P2177?
OBD-II Code P2177 is defined as a System Too Lean Off Idle. The engine control module (PCM) uses multiple sensors to determine the required amount of fuel needed to keep the engine running efficiently. If the PCM cannot achieve the desired balance between fuel and air, it will set code P2177.
What does engine code P2251 mean?
How serious is the P2251 code? Code P2251 is major failure in the O2 sensor heater circuit and the O2 sensor may be rendered unable to respond to the exhaust O2 and cause the ECM to go into failure mode. This may cause the vehicle to fail emission testing and cause drive complaints depending on the manufacturer.
What is the IAC sensor?
An idle air control actuator or idle air control valve (IAC actuator/valve) is a device commonly used in fuel-injected vehicles to control the engine’s idling rotational speed (RPM).
What does idle air control system RPM lower than expected?
Diagnostic Trouble Code (DTC) P0506 stands for “Idle Air Control System RPM Lower than Expected.” It means that your powertrain control module (PCM) has detected an engine idle speed lower than the specified revolution per minute (RPM) for a specific amount of time.
What does a p2177 diagnostic code mean?
P2177 is a general OBD-II diagnostic trouble code indicating a fault with the bank 1 too lean. This code may be seen with other lean condition codes or misfire codes. The P2177 code means that the system is too lean off idle for bank 1. What that tells us is that the air-fuel mixture is too lean for the bank 1 half of the engine.
How to troubleshoot an electrical problem on a Volvo?
