P1200 - FAULT CODE - OBD2
P1200 Code failures by brands
P1200 BUICK, CADILLAC, CHEVROLET, GMC: FUEL INJECTOR CIRCUIT
Description of DTC code P1200
Fuel injectors are essential components of the fuel delivery system. They deliver the fuel at the most appropriate time and ensure clean and efficient combustion. The design of the injectors includes an atomizer, which makes gasoline or diesel fuel is evenly distributed for optimum combustion. They are used to replace the carburetor system because they contribute to efficient engine operation and considerably reduce emissions.
The injectors control the volume of fuel entering the combustion chamber, ensuring that the correct amount is injected at the right time. The ECM (Engine Control Module) determines when the injection should occur. When it activates the injector, pressurized fuel is sprayed into the fuel chamber through the injectors.
When the DTC P1200 OBDII code is set, it is due to the ECM detects an incorrect voltage level in one or more fuel injector circuits for more than 5 seconds while the engine is running.
