A P2544 indicates there is a malfunction with signal input in the powertrain control module (PCM) or one of its related control modules.

What the P2544 code means

A signal request malfunction may be logged multiple times in a row before a P2544 code is registered. In many cases, the problem lies with the PCM itself, which may be hampered by a faulty driver. Faulty and broken wiring may also be to blame for a P2544 code.

What are the symptoms of the P2544 code?

The electrical signal problem may cause other problems. When these resulting symptoms are misdiagnosed as the problem itself, otherwise good hardware may be replaced without a purpose. Any electrical or software-based issue should be addressed before moving onto concerns with the hardware.

How serious is the P2544 code?

A P2544 code has the potential to seriously affect a vehicle's driving performance. Although the issue is usually mild, more severe cases can result in the engine stalling.
