Hi,

This code is usually caused by binding throttle body.

1. Remove the air cleaner outlet tube.
2. Disconnect the electronic throttle body electrical connector.
3. Disconnect the throttle position (TP) sensor electrical connector.
4. Remove the bolts, the electronic throttle body and the gasket. Discard the gasket.
5. To install, tighten to 9 Nm (80 lb-in) .
6. To install, reverse the removal procedure.
7. Install a new electronic throttle body gasket.

Let me know,if needed further assistance.

Hope i helped you.

Thanks for using ' Fixya ' and have a nice day!!

P2112 - Throttle Actuator Control (TAC) System - Stuck Closed. You can have a binding throttle body, wire loose, or obstruction in the throttle body. If the truck runs great it just could be a glitch. Reset the check engine light and see if it comes back on. If it comes back on try cleaning the throttle body. If that fails then it is time to see a professional. It may be under warranty as this is an emissions issue so ask.

What is code , po299' on mitsubish shogun 2008


the following answer is courtsey of OBD-CODES.com OBD Codes Your OBD-II Trouble Codes Repair Site Home Trouble Codes FAQs Forums Store P0299 Turbo / Supercharger Underboost OBD-II Trouble Code Technical Description Turbocharger/Supercharger "A" Underboost Condition What does that mean? The P0299 DTC code refers to a condition where the PCM/ECM (powertrain/engine control module) has detected that the bank "A" or single turbocharger or supercharger is not providing a normal amount of boost. That could be due to a variety of reasons, which we detail below. On a normally operating turbocharged or supercharged engine the air going into the engine is pressurized and that's part of what makes so much power for an engine of it's size. If this code is set, you will likely notice reduced power output. In the case of Ford vehicles, this may apply: "The PCM checks for a minimum throttle intake pressure (TIP) PID reading during engine operation, which indicates an underboost condition. This DTC sets when the PCM detects that the actual throttle intake pressure is less than the desired throttle intake pressure by 4 psi or more for 5 seconds." Symptoms Symptoms of a P0299 DTC may include: MIL (Malfunction indicator lamp) illumination Reduced power output from engine, possibly in a limp mode Unusual sounds from the engine/turbo There would likely be no other symptoms. Potential Causes Potential causes of a P0299 turbo underboost code include: Intake (induction) air restriction or leak Failed or damaged turbocharger (sticking, binding, etc.) Faulty boost/charge pressure sensor Faulty wastegate bypass regulator valve (VW) Low fuel pressure condition (Isuzu) Sticking turbo nozzle control solenoid (Isuzu) Faulty injector control pressure (ICP) sensor (Ford) Low oil pressure (Ford) EGR system fault (Ford) Variable geometry turbocharger (VGT) actuator (Ford) VGT vanes sticking (Ford) Possible Solutions First off, you'll want to repair any other DTC codes if present prior to diagnosing this code. Start with a visual inspection. Inspect the intake air system for cracks, loose or disconnected hoses, restrictions, blockages, etc. Repair or replace as required. If the air induction system tests OK, then you'll want to focus your diagnosis efforts on the charge pressure control, diverter valve (blowoff valve), sensors, regulators, etc. Really at this point you'll want to refer to a vehicle specific detailed repair manual for specific troubleshooting steps. There are some known issues on certain makes and engines so also check out our car repair forums here and search using your keywords. For example, if you search around, you'll find that a common fix for a P0299 in VWs is to replace or repair the diverter valve or wastegate solenoid. On the GM Duramax diesel, this code may mean the turbo housing resonator has failed. If you have a Ford, you'll want to next check the wastegate regulating valve solenoid for correct operation

How do I clear check engine light


The check engine light is set by the onboard computer detecting a malfunction or out of tolerance condition. The code(s) can be read with an OBD-II scanner. Once the condition(s) that cause the codes are repaired, the code can be cleared with the OBD-II scantool. You can purchase these tools at local auto parts stores. Be careful though; the cheapest ones will only read the codes, but cannot reset the Check Engine Light.

Hello im having a problem with my 2005 explorer the problem is engine failsafe mode?


Hi, when a major sensor fails, the engine computer reverts to default settings that the engine will run on but only well enough to get you to a service station. This is often called "limp home mode." In every case I've heard of, the malfunction indicator will light and the computer will store a code indicating the missing sensor data. An OBD 2 scanner is needed to extract the code. If you can get the code and send it to us, we can advise you on appropriate repairs. Most auto parts chains offer a free OBD 2 scan service. Please let me know if you have more questions, and thanks for using FixYa.
