Hi there. These codes are coming on for a possible fuel pressure issue that could also be causing the catalytic converter to burn too hot. Check the fuel rail pressure and make sure that the pressure does not exceed minimum pressure of 4,000. Careful with checking the pressure, the rail can produce pressures up to 26,000 psi.

Make sure that you use a gauge that can handle very high pressure. Check the fuel rail pressure sensor for resistance with the engine running. If the resistance is not moving when throttling the engine, then the fuel fail pressure sensor needs replaced. If you need further assistance troubleshooting your vehicle, then seek out a technician, such as one from YourMechanic, that can pinpoint the cause for each code and proceed with proper adjustments or repairs.
