You may have squirrels storing food for the winter in your car. Try locating the in-cabin air filter(usually located behind the glove box on most cars) and remove the access panel and filter. The fan is most likely below the filter check to see if there are pine cones, peanuts, or apples in there. Remove debris and replace.

SOURCE: what is p200a my check engine light is on 2011


Hi there,

I think the code you are referring to is P0200.

This code means your vehicle computer (PCM) has identified an issue within the Fuel Injector circuit.

Possible causes for P0200 code are:

  • Open or shorted injector
  • Injector low internal resistance (basically an injector that works, but is out of specs)
  • Grounded driver circuit
  • Open driver circuit
  • Driver circuit shorted to voltage
  • Wiring harness intermittently shorting against underhood components


Cheers,

SOURCE: 2011 kia sorento car wont start

I have the same problem with my 2011 Kia Sorento. I have been googling it and I think it may be a bad brake sensor switch. Going to take it to the dealership on Monday. I had my battery tested (which I had replaced about 3 weeks ago) and it was fine. I found a video online that shows how to bypass the brake sensor . Push the start button once and then again and hold it the second time for about 15 seconds until it starts. Mine started right up

My 2011 Kia Forte check engine light is on, ran the code P200A Intake Manifold Performance Bank 1, engine is whining noise while stepping on and off the gas.Any ideas what this could be?


well kia has had this problem from day one ..........it is The Variable Charge Motion Actuator (VCMA).. The Variable Charge Motion Actuator (VCMA) is used for an adjustment of automotive flap and it is operated with two position, open and close. It makes swirl among intake air to reduce emission under cold start condition. This is worm gear driver type which doesn't guarantee restoring to limp home position in the case of loss of current supply. (This doesn't have mechanical return force due to no return spring.) DTC Description If PCM detects that the opened or closed stop position is out of the specified value, It sets P200A.
