Cost of diagnosing the P2671 code

P2671 is a diagnostic trouble code (DTC) for "Actuator Supply Voltage B 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.

P2671 Trouble Code definition

A P2671 code indicates a fault in the B circuit’s actuator supply, detected by the PCM or another control module, such as:

  • body control module
  • alternative fuel control module
  • antilock brake control module
  • instrument panel control module
  • fuel injection control module
  • anti-theft module
  • cruise control module
  • traction control module
  • proximity alert module
  • climate control module

What a P2671 Code Means

An actuator supply voltage B malfunction means a trouble code has been stored and a Malfunction Indicator Lamp (MIL) or Check Engine Light may be illuminated. This code applies to all manufacturers. Sometimes, multiple drive cycles may be needed for the MIL to illuminate.

Causes of P2671 Code

A P2671 code is often caused by :

Symptoms of P2671 Code

Diagnosing a P2724 Code

The code is in reference to the actuator voltage signal from/to various engine control actuators(CAN). CAN is an abbreviation for ‘controller area network,” a communications bus between multiple microcomputers without a host computer being needed, a system designed specifically for automotive applications. The CAN bus is a network of wiring harnesses and connectors used to share information between automotive control modules, and controls practically every electronic function in the vehicle, along with the PCM.

  • A specialized scanner such as Autohex or Tech II may prove more useful in tracking down the specific malfunction than using a code reader and ohmmeter.

  • Use a memory saving device in case the PCM or other controllers lose memory and would require reprogramming

  • Specialized CAN scanners are available for diagnostics, showing pin values and control module operation and conditions. These scanners can give accurate real-time information while the vehicle is being operated.

  • Control module ground circuits will need to be tested for continuity with battery ground.

  • Check for any loose or dangling ground cables, straps or wires for the engine or transmission, from any recent repair work.

  • Look for corroded or loose electrical connectors that might cause a code to be stored due to increased circuit resistance. When you’ve narrowed it down, find a CAN bus system wiring diagram and use a volt ohmmeter to check continuity between connectors. Compare findings against manufacturer’s specs and repair open or shorted connections if needed.

Additional Considerations for P2671 Code

CAN systems are extremely complex, some with up to 18 separate control modules. All it can take is one misplaced probe to destroy expensive control modules and require a complete reprogramming of the vehicle. Due to the complexity of these systems, it’s advisable that repairs to correct a P2671 code be left to experienced, qualified techs with the proper tools for diagnosis and repair. Diagnosing and repairing a P2671 code with a digital volt-ohmmeter, for example, would require testing hundreds or thousands of individual circuits separately.

Fred was very friendly and thorough to get to the root of the issue. Even when he could not find a fault to why my engine light was on, he went above and beyond to make absolutely sure that the concern was minimized. Turns out, all that needed to be done was a reset but his diagnostic to address my issues was very intricate and appreciated.
