Code p 0072 refers to outside air temp sensor ( ambient temp sensor--low input===causes ---wiring short to ground, outside air temp sensor ---ECM
thee has to be an ambient temp sensor as that reports the temp to the ECM to adjust the air/fuel settings for cold starts
it could be in the MAF/VAF sensor area

What do the codes p0072 and p0073 mean on my 2008 Dodge avenger? w


Well, I would say that it means that SOMEBODY is confused!

Diagnostic Test Code (DTC) P0072 is defined by SAE J2012 as "Ambient Air Temperature Sensor Circuit Low" DTC P0073 is defined as "Ambient Air Temperature Sensor Circuit High"

I do not know how the ambient air temperature sensor circuit could be faulted both HIGH and LOW at the same time.

The only thing I have ever seen cause something like this is when people try to install aftermarket "performance chips" on their vehicles which "lie" to the computer about what the ambient air temperature is.

I have a Mitsubishi 2007 Triton Cab/Chassis vehicle,I would like to shut off the engine management light permanently if possible. It comes on at start and stays on some of the time and then at other times...


Hi Barry,
I'm afraid you may have misunderstood my ad. I do not have any "magic fixes" that will get the light to turn off. I only offer help with performing diagnosis and repair to those who would like to save money. Diagnostic time at a shop is expensive, as you probably already know. The way I can help you is to avoid the diagnostic time at the shop and diagnose the problem yourself and perform the repairs necessary to correct the problem with your engine management system without replacing a bunch of UNNECESSARY parts trying to GUESS what the problem is.

Here is the next problem. I need to know which engine your Triton is equipped with and which fault code numbers you are getting. There is no way to look up the correct diagnostic procedure or wiring diagrams or anything else we may need without this information.

Also, Triton is not sold in the USA. The Triton platform is sold in the USA as a Mitzubishi Raider. I have diagnostic and repair information for the Raider, but none for the Triton. They are probably very similar, but I won't know for sure until we get into diagnosing your truck.....wire colors, component locations, etc., may be a lot different.

If you would like to continue and see if we can get your truck fixed, let me know.

Check Engine Light with Code P0072 on 2004 Volvo XC90


Grounding issue "Circuit low" = ground wire problem or another system on the same circuit using too much current.

Check all wiring issues and then correct the issue to have the code go away :)
