P0292 code definition

The P0292 code indicates that the fuel injector circuit in cylinder 11 is not in line with the manufacturer’s reference value.

What the P0292 code means

The engine control module will turn the fuel injectors on and off during normal operation. If the voltage is 10% higher or lower than the manufacturer’s reference value, the P0292 code will be stored.

What causes the P0292 code?

A number of different things could cause the P0292 code to appear. The following are some of the most common:

  • Dirty fuel injector 11
  • Faulty fuel injector 11
  • Clogged fuel injector 11
  • Open or shorted fuel injector 11 harness
  • Bad electrical connection for the fuel injector 11 circuit

What are the symptoms of the P0292 code?

A vehicle that has the P0292 code will likely have their Check Engine Light come on and stay on as well. When driving the vehicle, they may notice that the engine is running rough and that it might misfire. You may also notice that you are getting fewer miles per gallon. It can be problematic to drive the vehicle because of these conditions, so it is in the best interest of the driver to have them taken care of as soon as possible.

How does a mechanic diagnose the P0292 code?

Mechanics will utilize an OBD-II scanner to get more information about the vehicle. This scanner hooks up to the vehicle’s onboard computer. It will gather data from the vehicle, making it easier for the mechanic to diagnose the problem and determine the best course of action for the repair. They will also reset the code and test the vehicle to see if the code comes back. This ensures that there are no false alarms, since some older vehicles might show codes that aren’t actually an issue for the vehicle.

Common mistakes when diagnosing the P0292 code

One of the errors that can be made during the diagnosis is to replace the injector right away. Often, the injector is only clogged or partially clogged, and an injector flush could take care of the problem instead of getting a replacement. A thorough diagnosis is essential.

How serious is the P0292 code?

Different cars may respond differently when this code is present, but even if you aren’t suffering from the stuttering engine and a rough riding vehicle it does not mean you should ignore this problem. Always take the time to bring your vehicle to the mechanic so he or she can diagnose it properly and make the repairs it needs.

What repairs can fix the P0292 code?

After the mechanic has used their scanner and tested the vehicle, they may make some of the following repairs to fix the P0292 code:

  • Flush the fuel injector, as this is one of the most common causes of the code
  • Check the wiring and connectors, and make fixed and replacements as needed
  • Replace the fuel injector

Additional comments for consideration regarding the P0292 code

If you have the P0292 or any other code stored in your vehicle, it is important that have the mechanics look at the vehicle and take care of the codes. In some cases, they might be false alarms. The mechanics can reset the codes and this will turn off the warning and service lights. However, if the code persists, it means something is wrong with the vehicle. Getting the vehicle and the codes fixed sooner rather than later is a good idea. Leaving codes unattended can cause more problems with the vehicle down the line.
