Q: Received a diagnostic code P0562.

asked by on January 12, 2016

I got a diagnostic code P0562.

The code you have indicates that there is low voltage to the powertrain control module. This is likely due to your battery being low on charge due to age. When the engine first cranks over it is a great strain on the battery. If the battery is going bad it is possible for the voltage to drop low enough during cranking that this code could set. I would ask for help from a mechanic, maybe from YourMechanic, to check your battery and electrical system to see if your battery just needs to be replaced or if there is another fault in the system causing this code to set.
