P1294 verbiage is simply "Target Idle Not Reached (+/-200 RPM)" which unfortunately is one of the DTC's that is least helpful. The most likely cause of this is a simple vacuum leak, very possible a leaking gasket at the base of the throttle body. What happens is unmetered air enters the engine confusing the PCM, forcing the IAC to chase the idle speed up and down. The first thing you should do is look under the hood and verify that all of the vacuum hoses are connected and in good shape, the brake booster isn't leaking and finally get a can of carb cleaner and go hunting for a leak. If you haven't done this before I recommend letting someone who is comfortable with the procedure do it for you or show you how.

CAN YOU PLEASE TELL ME WHAT THIS CODE MEANS P1294 FROM A SMOG CHECK ON A 1997 DODGE STRATUS


The code is "target idle not reached". This indicates that the idle is too fast and this is what sets the code. The cause could be the TPS or the IAC, but normally if these were the problem, you would have additional codes to indicate them.. The P1294 without any other code is most likely going to be caused by an intake leak, one that occurs after the MAF sensor if your car has one, or the throttle body if not.

99 Dodge Ram 2500 SLT 4X4. Has P1294 code and fast idle when warm.


Well code 1294 is for the computer not being able to maintain the correct idle speed. So the code is because of the problem, not the problem because of the code.
Could be a major vac leak, or a problem with the idle air control valve, or the throttle plate is stuck open.

What does a p1294 code mean on a 2001 Dodge Ram 1500


The code P1294 means that the computer is setting a target for the engine to idle at and the engine cannot do it therefore setting the DTC. Solution start by checking or replacing the sparkplugs. Also remove the idler motor from the throttle body and spray it out with carb cleaner. Also spray out the passages in the throttle body that the idle motor use. If that does not fix it you could have another problem like a bad idle motor or something relating to that circuit. Did you replace the TB or make an adjustment to the TPS? As for your spark knock(pinging) this could be related or not. Most of the time pinging occurs is from high combustion tempertures. This could caused by worn plugs,cap and rotor. If not that maybe the truck is running lean but I doubt it because you did not get a code for that. Another thing that could cause pinging on a Dodge truck is oil going into the combustion chambers(i.e. the intake belly pan gasket leaking very common). These are just pointers for you to look at. If you find something else please let us know, it is very difficult to diagnos a problem by word of mouth.

1996 dodge caravan 2.4 code p1294


on dodge motors
fitted a lot of parts and still no better

the fault code clears and comes back as a intermittent problem

could be electrical voltage drop off or heat related failure

i wonder if your 02 sensor ,the catalytic converter
or other related sensors
are causing the fault to come back
if needed .....fit a new air filter...

how the test is determined

P1294-TARGET IDLE NOT REACHED 3.3L/3.8L
When Monitored and Set Condition:
P1294-TARGET IDLE NOT REACHED 3.3L/3.8L
When Monitored: With the engine idling and the transmission in drive, if automatic.
There must not be a MAP sensor trouble code or a Throttle Position Sensor trouble code.
Set Condition: The engine idle is not within 200 rpm above or 100 rpm below the target
idle for 40 seconds. One trip fault.

POSSIBLE CAUSES
INTERMITTENT CONDITION
IAC MOTOR PASSAGES
VACUUM LEAKS
AIR INDUCTION SYSTEM
THROTTLE BODY AND THROTTLE LINKAGE
TEST ACTION APPLICABILITY

Hi i have 4 cylinder 1996 dodge caravan. it only has 76,000 miles on it and the body is in good shape so i would like to fix it.we got the car two years ago and it had a stalling problem and a thrusting...


code P1294 target idle not reached most likely need to replace the idle air control motor. can cause the car to stall or reeve up.

code P0125 engine not reaching operating temperature, most likely you need to replace the thermostat, or possible the coolant temperature sensor.

the coolant temperature could cause the slight loss in power, because if the on-board computer thinks the engine is cold it will keep the fuel rich just like if it were trying to start a cold engine.

but i think you need to replace the fuel filter, that is probably the low power.

Check engine light comes on sporatically


Most likely a misfire and it is comming on go to autozone or a parts store who can pull the codes it will give you an ideal of whats wrong. if it has 40,000 plus it is most likely the 02 sensor. Sometimes though you may have a spark plug going bad.
