P1292 and p0181 comes on when I hit a bump

My car has 72000 miles.
My car has an automatic transmission.

If these two codes keep coming up together, it sounds like there is probably a spot in the wiring harness that is shorting to ground. P1292 is for an injector and the P0181 is for a fuel temperature sensor, so an electrical issue is likely considering these codes are both trigger fuel system components. The only common cause between the two would be a short in the wiring harness that shows up when hitting the bumps. To have this taken care of, enlist a local professional, like one from YourMechanic, to assist with this electrical repair.
