The P0927 fault code indicates the Engine Control Module (ECM) detected a problem in the operation of the gear shift reverse actuator of the transmission. The gear shift reverse actuator controls how a vehicle’s transmission shifts into reverse gear.
Put in the simplest of terms, the P0927 OBD-II trouble code means the ECM found a signal indicating the voltage within the gear shift reverse actuator was higher than normal parameters.
This voltage anomaly may be caused by improper function of the guide rail or shift shaft corresponding to reverse gear within the transmission, making it difficult or impossible to shift into reverse gear.
While there are several issues that can trigger a higher than normal reading within the gear shift reverse actuator circuit, resulting in the illumination of the Check Engine Light on a vehicle’s dashboard, the cause of the code is likely due to a mechanical problem within the transmission.
When the P0927 code causes the Check Engine Light to come on, the following symptoms may be present:
