This data can be useful if an intermittent fault is diagnosed later on. However I'd have to do a longboard check on a Leaf's interior. Repair all leaks found, and check the system again to ensure there are no more leaks anywhere in the system. I guess the controllers and displays were recalibrating and catching up with the actual conditions. In general, codes that begin with P0 are Generic codes, whereas codes that begin with P1 are manufacturer-specific. First is a manual fuel pressure test kit. There are not many causes of excessive fuel pressure.
Caution when Relying Only on Diagnostic Trouble Codes. The vehicle service manual should be consulted for more information on possible causes of the fault, along with required testing. The solution is here : P0080 Possible Solution: Disconnected, dirty or fouled spark plugs are common causes for engines that won't start. If it does start, check the system pressure to confirm that it falls within the specified range. If you know where the sensor is, you only have to unclip the old sensor and replace it with a new one. However I'd have to do a longboard check on a Leaf's interior.
The other tool required is a professional level scan tool. I think that version of Win7 has a 32-bit compatibility mode or I'll figure out the workarounds from the other threads on the forum. It's more than having the seat adjusted exactly the way I want it-- it's the hassle factor of finding and buying another vehicle. This obviously only applies to vehicles that can still be driven. Now I wish I'd made the time to disconnect the 12v battery cable before our trip.
After debating further troubleshooting with a 12v battery charger or jumpering the Prius with the other Prius , I decided to let the dealer do the diagnosis. In some applications the pressure regulator is located on the fuel rail and operated by a spring with vacuum assistance obtained from the inlet manifold. This sensor must not be confused with the pressure regulator, which opens and closes in response to varying pressures to maintain the specified fuel pressure. I have the mechanical and electrical skills thanks to the Navy's submarine force but I'd rather work on other projects or surf. In the meantime I'm calling my local Toyota dealer every morning in hopes of an appointment cancellation, but maybe I need to consider using another Toyota dealer further away. Put a charger on the 12V battery and fully-charge it overnight.
I could blow the bucks for a Leaf, recharge it from our photovoltaic array, and never buy gasoline again. If the pressure rises steeply, or remains steady whatever the reading, it is almost certain that the pressure regulator is faulty. What are the common causes of code P0088? Repair all wiring found to be defective. Step 4 If the pressure regulator is located on the fuel rail, it is likely to be spring operated, but supplied with vacuum assistance. This code will remain until the problem is resolved. Replace the pump if obtained readings do not conform to values stated in the manual.
If the scanner cannot monitor live data streams, retest the fuel pressure after the test drive, and scan the system to see if the code has returned. I backed it out to the driveway and parked it. In the meantime I'll see if I can borrow a 12v battery charger from one of my gearhead friends and repeat the whole experiment with a fully-charged 12v battery. The definitions for these are set by the manufacturer. I'm ambivalent about replacing the traction battery on my own. Make sure you have sufficient fuel in the tank so that the car does not run out and that you have adequate ventilation for the exhaust.
We drove it a mile and parked it for an errand. There are many posts about how to do this. I drove it regularly up until our trip in early September and the car was fine. What if I can reset the system? A certain amount of laziness and rationalization goes into the decision to replace the traction battery while hoping to get another 200K miles out of it. Start the engine, and monitor the actual pressure in the fuel system via the gauge, and the scanner.
In the unlikely event that the code persists, it is possible that there is an intermittent fault present, which may have to be allowed to worsen before an accurate diagnosis and repair can be made. A neighbor has owned a Volt for a few years and I should ask him how it's doing. I left it in the driveway, turned on and in Park. If you don't have a battery charger available and need to use the Prius itself to charge the 12V battery, then note it is not necessary to actually drive it. Defective pressure sensors can deactivate the fuel pump on some applications, so be sure to check the operation of this sensor in conjunction with the actual fuel pressure if the vehicle can start.
In the meantime I'd appreciate some education and perhaps reassurance. The car had little power or acceleration. And for the holiday season I guess I'll treat myself to a trickle battery charger. After a 20-minute stop I started up the car again and drove it about 300 feet when I got the master warning light red triangle accompanied by the brake warning light yellow circle inside parentheses and the check engine light. This is critical for accurate testing. I'm ambivalent about replacing the traction battery on my own. However, the range of ideal fuel pressures vary widely between vehicles, so consult the relevant manual to determine the correct range of pressures for the vehicle being worked on.
I could blow the bucks for a Leaf, recharge it from our photovoltaic array, and never buy gasoline again. As a result, oxygen sensors are likely to report fuel mixture problems. It is a common mistake to replace the fuel pump and other expensive components in attempts to remedy a no starting condition. Diagnostic trouble codes or fault codes are codes that are stored by the on-board computer diagnostic system. Your car probably has at least one problem besides a weak 12V battery.
