P0281 Trouble Code

OBD/2 P0281 error code description and symptoms.

Fuel Rail Pressure Sensor in Range But Low The comprehensive component monitor (CCM) monitors the FRP pressure for acceptable fuel pressure. The test fails when the fuel pressure falls below a calibrated value. Low fuel pressure Damaged FRP sensor Excessive resistance in circuit Low or no fuel A FRP PID value below 551 kpa (80 psi) indicates a failure Low or no fuel A FRP PID value greater than 896 kpa (130 psi) indicates a failure.

Some systems require that the actuator has an adequate supply of brake fluid. Low brake fluid levels can mimic the symptoms of code P0281, so consult the manual to locate the brake fluid reservoir. Bear in mind that a low fluid level can set code P0281 on some applications, so make sure that on fluid operated systems the fluid level is up to the mark before starting an electrical diagnosis.

What you want to look p0281 cylinder 7 contribution/balance fault: Any conditions that might cause ignition misfire, an overly rich or lean fuel condition, or loss of compression. Use your OBD Express DIY to look at the oxygen sensor outputs, coolant temperature, airflow, calculated engine load, and inlet air temperature.
