The engine light came on so I put the code reader and it said p2228. For a 2014 kia cadenza Mechanic's Assistant: Has your vehicle stalled? Has anyone run a diagnostic test to pull the trouble code? No my car has not stalled. I have my own code reader and I checked it and it said P2228 Mechanic's Assistant: Are you fixing your Cadenza yourself? What have you tried so far? It just came on when I put gas in my car not even 10min ago
