P2067 code definition?
Fuel Level Sensor B Circuit Low
What the P2067 code means
The Engine Control Module (ECM) utilizes a sensor either built into the fuel pump, or into the fuel tank, which communicates to the ECM the level of the fuel. The P2067 code will set if the fuel level becomes low or erratic. This code will also set if the sensor becomes non-communicative. The job of this sensor is to simply tell the ECM the level of the fuel.
The fuel level sensor communicates the level of fuel to the ECM by sending a voltage signal; the lower the gasoline level, the lower the voltage signal. However, the voltage may become spontaneous if the fuel level sensor is faulty, then a code P2067 will likely set. In most modern vehicles, there are two fuel sensors, one on each side of the gas tank (A,B). If there is too much variation detected in the side-by-side comparison of the sensors, a code P2067 may set. For example sensor, if Sensor A says 80% full while Sensor B says 20% full, P2067 will set because the ECM sees this as an abnormality.
What causes the P2017 code?
- Dented or damaged fuel tank
- Faulty instrument cluster
- Low fuel
- Faulty fuel pump
- Faulty fuel level sensor
- Faulty ECM
- Shorted or open of electrical circuit related to the fuel level sensor
What are the symptoms of the P2017 code?
- Check engine light illumination
- Erratic fuel gage readings
How does a mechanic diagnose the P2017 code?
Tests the fuel level sensor with a multimeter to ensure it has a proper ground, adequate voltage supply, and voltage feedback
Checks the fuel pressure
Uses a multimeter to measure the resistance of the fuel level sensor, then comparing it to specifications
Inspects the ECM for opens, shorts, frayed wiring, corrosion or broken connections
Inspects the circuit of the fuel level sensor for an open or shorted condition
Inspects the instrument cluster for faults such as broken solder contact points
Common mistakes when diagnosing the P2067 code
This code commonly pertains to newer vehicles ranging from 2008-present. If you have this code it is likely that the manufacturer will repair it under warranty. It is suggested to check with your manufacturer to verify if your vehicle qualifies for warranty repair.
How serious is the P2067 code?
This particular code is not harmful or damaging to the vehicle, although with a Check Engine Light, you can not legally pass inspection. If you have a newer vehicle (2008- present) and trouble code P2067, it may be under warranty. To help minimize the chances of missing the opportunity for a warranty repair, it is suggested that you find out your warranty package as soon as this code is discovered.
What repairs can fix the P2097 code?
- Replacing a faulty fuel level sensor
- Replacing a faulty fuel pump
- Replacing a faulty instrument cluster
- Repairing damaged wiring related to the circuit of the fuel level sensor
- Repairing an open or short related to the circuit of the fuel level sensor
- Replacing a faulty ECM
- Replacing a damaged fuel tank
Additional comments for consideration regarding the P2067 code
The most likely fix for this particular trouble code is the replacement of the fuel pump, or, if you’re lucky, the fuel level sensor itself. In most cases, the entire pump will have to be replaced, even if it is just the fuel level sensor that as faulted, because in most vehicles, the fuel level sensor and fuel pump are built as one.
