Reductant Tank Temperature Sensor Performance
DTC P205C
Reductant Tank Temperature Sensor Circuit Low Voltage
DTC P205D
Reductant Tank Temperature Sensor Circuit High Voltage
Circuit/System Description
The reductant level/temperature sensor is a solid-state device that provides the engine control module (ECM) with information
on reductant level and temperature. The level/temperature sensor receives system voltage directly from the underhood
electrical center and ground through a chassis ground circuit. The level sensor consists of three sensing elements. Reductant
level sensor 3 is highest, reductant level sensor 2 is located between sensor 1 and 3. Reductant level sensor 1 is located at low
reductant level. Reductant level sensor 3 is located at less than half range of the DEF tank level. The scan tool will display
Active when the level sensors are in contact with reductant and Inactive when not in contact with reductant. An integrated
temperature sensor monitors reductant temperature. Reductant level and temperature signals are processed within the sensor
and supplied to the ECM as serial data messages. The ECM will set a DTC when it detects an invalid level or temperature
serial data message from the sensor.

The mass air flow (MAF) sensor is integrated with the intake air temperature (IAT) sensor 2. The MAF sensor is an air flow
meter that measures the amount of air entering the engine. The engine control module (ECM) uses the MAF sensor signal to
provide the correct fuel delivery for all engine speeds and loads. A small quantity of air entering the engine indicates a
deceleration or idle condition. A large quantity of air entering the engine indicates an acceleration or high load condition.
The ECM monitors the exhaust gas recirculation (EGR) flow when the EGR valve is commanded ON. The ECM compares the
desired MAF to the actual MAF, if the difference is less than or greater than a calibrated threshold level the amount of detected
EGR flow is out of range and an EGR DTC will set.
The ECM applies 5 V to the MAF sensor on the MAF sensor signal circuit. The sensor uses the voltage to produce a frequency
based on the inlet airflow through the sensor bore. The frequency varies in a range of approximately 2,300 Hz at idle to near
9,000 Hz at maximum engine load, depending on engine coolant temperature (ECT).
When the ECT reaches 60°C (140°F) the ECM can command the exhaust gas recirculation (EGR) valve ON, and a lower
frequency and g/s value will be indicated on the scan tool.
Conditions for Running the DTC

Action Taken When the DTC Sets

DTCs P0102 and P0103 are Type A DTCs.



The ECM commands reduced engine power.
The driver information center (DIC) or indicator may display reduced engine power.
Diesel particulate filter (DPF) regeneration is inhibited.
Conditions for Clearing the DTC
DTCs P0102 and P0103 are Type A DTCs.
Diagnostic Aids




A wide open throttle (WOT) acceleration from a stop should cause the MAF Sensor parameter on the scan tool to
increase rapidly. This increase should be from 6–8 g/s at idle to greater than 380 g/s at the time of the 1-2 shift.
For an intermittent problem, visually and physically inspect the EGR valve for a possible binding or sticking in the
open position.
Verify that any electrical aftermarket devices are properly connected and grounded. Refer to Checking Aftermarket
Accessories.
A faulty EGR valve that does not close or open fully, may set this DTC.

The intake air temperature (IAT) sensor 1 is a variable resistor that measures the temperature of the air at the mass air flow
(MAF) sensor. The IAT Sensor 1 is part of the mass air flow (MAF/IAT) sensor assembly. The engine control module (ECM)
supplies 5 V to the IAT sensor 1 circuit, and a ground for the IAT sensor 1 low reference circuit. The ECM monitors the IAT
sensor 1 signal for an excessively high or low voltage, or for a voltage that is not in correlation with the fuel rail temperature
sensor start up signal.
Conditions for Running the DTC
P0112 or P0113

The engine is runnning for longer than 10 s.

The DTCs run continuously when the above condition is met.
Conditions for Setting the DTC
P0112
The IAT Sensor 1 parameter is warmer than 148°C (299°F) for greater than 3 s. This is equal to or less than 0.08 V on the IAT
signal circuit as measured by the ECM.
P0113
The IAT Sensor 1 parameter is colder than −39°C (−38°F) for greater than 3 s. This is equal to greater than 4.9 V on the IAT
signal circuit as measured by the ECM.
Action Taken When the DTC Sets



DTCs P0112 and P0113 are Type A DTCs.
The ECM commands reduced engine power.
The driver information center (DIC) or indicator may display reduced engine power.
Conditions for Clearing the DTC
DTCs P0112 and P0113 are Type A DTCs.
Diagnostic Aids


With the ignition ON and the engine OFF, if the engine is cold, a properly functioning IAT Sensor 1 will gradually
increase the scan tool IAT Sensor 1 parameter. This is due to the heat that is generated by the MAF sensor heating
elements.
Depending on the ambient temperature, an IAT Sensor 1 signal circuit or low reference circuit that is shorted to the
MAF sensor signal circuit can cause a DTC P0113 to set. This condition can cause a rapid fluctuation in the IAT
Sensor 1 parameter.


The Fuel Rail Temperature Sensor is located at the return line from the fuel rail. The Fuel Rail Temperature Sensor is
also know as the Fuel Temperature Sensor 2.
If DTC P0103 is also set, check for a disconnected MAF/IAT sensor.

DTC P125A
The ECM detects low voltage on the supply voltage circuit of fuel pressure regulator 2 for greater than 0.5 s.
DTC P125B
The ECM detects high voltage on the supply voltage circuit of fuel pressure regulator 2 for greater than 0.1 s.
Action Taken When the DTC Sets




DTC P125A is Type A DTC
DTC P125B is Type B DTC
The ECM commands the engine to operate in the Reduced Engine Power mode.
The message center displays Engine Power Is Reduced.
Conditions for Clearing the DTC


DTC P125A is Type A DTC
DTC P125B is Type B DTC
Diagnostic Aids



A failure in the fuel pressure regulator 2 system could cause a crank no start condition.
Intermittent or poor connections may cause this DTC to set.
If the fuel system pressure is actually too high, a fuel knock condition may exist.

Circuit/System Verification
1. Engine running, observe the following control circuit parameters with a scan tool:
o Fuel Press. Reg. 2 Ctrl. Ckt. Open Test Status
o Fuel Press. Reg. 2 Ctrl. Ckt. Short Gnd Test Status
o Fuel Press. Reg. 2 Ctrl. Ckt. Short Volt Test Status
o Fuel Press. Reg. 2 High Ctrl. Ckt. Short Gnd Test Status
o Fuel Press. Reg. 2 High Ctrl. Ckt. Volts Test Status
Each parameter should display OK or Not Run.
2. Operate the vehicle within the Conditions for Running the DTC to verify the DTC does not reset. You may also operate
the vehicle within the conditions that you observed from the Freeze Frame/Failure Records data.
Circuit/System Testing
1. Ignition OFF, disconnect the harness connector at the Q45B fuel pressure regulator 2.
2. Connect a test lamp between the high control circuit terminal 1 and ground. Verify the test lamp does not illuminate.
o If the test lamp illuminates, test the high control circuit for a short to B+. If the circuit tests normal, replace the
K20 engine control module .
3. Ignition ON, verify a test lamp illuminates between the high control circuit terminal 1 and ground.
o If the test lamp does not illuminate, test the high control circuit for an open, high resistance or short to ground.
If the circuit tests normal, replace the K20 engine control module.
4. Ignition ON, verify that a test lamp does not illuminate between the low control circuit terminal 2 and ground.
o If the test lamp illuminates , test the low control circuit for a short to voltage. If the circuit tests normal, replace
the K20 engine control module.
5. Ignition ON, verify a test lamp illuminates between the low control circuit terminal 2 and B+.
o If the test lamp does not illuminate, test the low control circuit for an open or high resistance. If the circuit tests
normal, replace the K20 engine control module.
6. Ignition OFF, Observe that the test lamp flashes 2 times and remains OFF until the ECM is powered down.
o If the test lamp does not flash 2 times and turn OFF, test the low control circuit for a short to ground. If the
circuit tests normal, replace the K20 engine control module.
7. If all circuits tests normal, replace the Q45B fuel pressure regulator 2.
Repair Instructions
Perform the Diagnostic Repair Verification after completing the diagnostic procedure.



Fuel Pressure Relief Valve Replacement
Perform the scan tool Diesel Particulate Filter (DPF) Regeneration Enable procedure if the scan tool DPF Soot Mass is
less than 40 g. If the scan tool DPF Soot Mass is 40 g or greater, perform the Diesel Particulate Filter (DPF) Service
Regeneration procedure.
