P2092 is a diagnostic trouble code (DTC) for "A Camshaft Position Actuator Control Circuit Low Bank 2". This can happen for multiple reasons and a mechanic needs to diagnose the specific cause for this code to be triggered in your situation. Our certified mobile mechanics can come to your home or office to perform the Check Engine Light is on diagnostic inspection. Once we are able to diagnose the problem, you will be provided with an upfront quote for the recommended fix and receive $20.00 off as a credit towards the repair. All our repairs are backed by our 12-month / 12,000-mile warranty.
P2092 is an OBD-II generic code for the engine control module (ECM) detecting the A camshaft position actuator control circuit is low on bank 2.
The ECM monitors the return voltage from the camshafts actuator circuit and will turn on the Check Engine light and set code P2092 when the voltage return is below the specified voltage for bank 2 camshaft position
A broken wire or connector for the supply voltage circuit from the power supply relay
An open wire on the power supply circuit
An open or short on the return signal wire to the ECM
An open or shorted camshaft control actuator for the bank 2 camshaft actuator
The Check Engine light will be illuminated and the code is set in ECM memory as a fault.
The engine may have low power on acceleration if the camshaft is set too far advanced when it failed.
The engine may have low power at higher speeds if the camshaft actuator failed in the retarded timing phase.
The engine fuel mileage will go down for the city or highway.
Scans codes and documents the code in the ECM and looks at the freeze frame data for failure.
Measures the voltage on the camshaft actuator supply circuit for bank 2.
Measures the resistance of the camshaft actuator for bank 2 and checks to specifications.
Diagnoses code P2092 following the manufacturer pinpoint tests.
Checks the wiring and connector to the supply circuit for shorts, breaks or loose connections to the actuator circuit for bank 2.
Clearing ECM memory codes before checking the freeze frame data for the main failure problem, so the failure may be duplicated and repaired
Failing to clear the ECM codes after the codes are fixed
Failing to follow the pinpoint test completely causing the wrong part to be diagnosed. Sometimes the wrong oil being used is common
Code P2092 is major failure in the camshaft actuator control circuit on bank 2 and the camshaft will not be able to advance or retard as required and a loss of power will result. The engine may go into failure management mode on some vehicles and limit the throttle control.
Code P2092 is for vehicles that have a camshaft advance and retard actuator. Some vehicles use these actuators to control oil flow to the camshaft mechanism. The most common failure in these systems is the actuator goes bad and will not control the circuit properly. The system is dependent on the correct oil viscosity of oil to be used or problems with advancing and retarding the camshafts are common.
