Hello. I would verify to check that the fuel pressure regulator and fuel pressure sensor on your vehicle are in proper working order. Any problems with those can set off the P0089 code.

If those check out, I would move on to verifying that the fuel pump is in good working order. As a faulty or low quality fuel pump may also be possible reasons as to why your fuel pressure is not correct, and your gauge is not reading accurately. If you need assistance with these checks, feel free to contact a certified mechanic who can diagnose your Check Engine Light codes and replace your fuel pump if necessary.
