The P000B code is a generic powertrain code related to fuel and air metering and auxiliary emissions controls. In this case, it means that engine control module (ECM) has detected a fault with the position and timing of the camshaft.
Codes related to the P000B include:
A P000B code is stored when the ECM, which monitors and checks the actual position of the camshaft versus a target position, sees that the change in position is smaller than a preset threshold, meaning that the response is slow. Whenever an issue is noted, an anti bounce counter keeps track, and if the counter exceeds a predetermined limit specified by the automaker, a P000B code can be stored.
“B” signals that the issue is with Bank 2, which is typically not the Cylinder 1.
