A P2635 code is a generic powertrain code related to computer output circuit issues. It means that the fuel pump 'A’ is registering a low flow, or one not within the preset parameters.
Codes related to a P2635 include:
The fuel pump uses a connector at the top of the fuel tank to supply power as well as ground to the fuel pump. It also provides power to the sensing wires for the fuel level sender. The fuel level sender communicates fuel level by a float that sits on top of the fuel level. An electric motor moves the gas through and pressurizes the fuel system.
A P2635 code will appear when the engine control module (ECM) detects low fuel flow or low fuel pressure in fuel pump A.
There are several possible causes of a P2635 code including:
Damaged or defective fuel pump (possibly due to damaged brushes, bearings or armature)
Damaged or defective fuel pump relay
Damaged or defective fuel pump driver
Lack of fuel
Damaged or defective ECM (rare)
Symptoms of a P2635 code can include:
A mechanic may use several methods to diagnose a P2635 code including:
There have been reports of vehicles simply being out of fuel or having a damaged or defective fuel gauge and being diagnosed with a P2635 code. Ensure the vehicle has fuel before proceeding with additional diagnosis and repairs.
Because a vehicle may not start or may hesitate during acceleration, this can cause potentially dangerous driving conditions. For this reason, this is considered a serious code and it is recommended to have it diagnosed and repaired as soon as possible.
