P2286 is a diagnostic trouble code (DTC) for "Injector Control Press Sensor Circuit High". 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 diagnostic. 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.
Injector Control Press Sensor Circuit High
P2286 is an OBD-II generic code for the engine control module (ECM) detecting the injector control pressure (ICP) sensor circuit is registering a high signal return to the ECM.
The Check Engine Light will be illuminated and the code is set in ECM memory as a fault.
The engine may run very rough and stall if the fuel control circuit is compromised from the fault.
The engine may run lean and misfire.
The ICP will not send correct signal to the ECM for processing of fuel control to the injectors.
Scans for codes and documents the code in the ECM, and then looks at the freeze frame data for failure
Checks the ICP sensor for the proper voltage return to the ECM watching the scanner ICP PID
Follows the manufacture pinpoint testing for the ICP code received
Disconnects the ICP sensor while monitoring the voltage return, and checking if the fault goes away with the ICP disconnected
Taps, wiggles, and bends small sections of the ICP wiring and connector to try locate the problem
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 follow the manufacturer pinpoint tests for the application
Replacing the ICP without verifying the failure assuming the sensor is the failure
Not checking the wiring thoroughly for the short to power fault
Code P2286 indicates the engine ECM is detecting that the ICP is not sending a normal return voltage signal and the fuel injection system cannot work correctly with this sensor input signal. The engine may have running or drivability issues when the sensor is not giving a normal return voltage.
Replacing the ICP
Repairing the wiring or connection to the ICP or ECM signal return where it is shorted to power
Replacing the ECM
Code P2286 is most commonly caused by a shorted ICP internally or the power and signal wires being shorted to each other. The ICP is more likely the cause of the code.
