Circuit/System Description

The barometric pressure (BARO) sensor is integral to the multifunction intake air sensor and responds to changes in altitude and atmospheric conditions. This gives the ECM an indication of barometric pressure. The ECM uses this information to calculate fuel delivery. The BARO sensor provides a voltage signal to the ECM relative to the atmospheric pressure changes. The ECM monitors the BARO sensor signal for a voltage outside of the normal range.

      OR

  • Ignition On, engine Off
    • The ECM detects that the BARO pressure is less than 50 kPa (7.3 psi) or greater than 115 kPa (16.7 psi).

      OR

    • The ECM detects that the absolute value of the difference between MAP and actual BARO is greater than 10 kPa and the absolute value of the difference between Boost Pressure and MAP is less than or equal to 10 kPa and the absolute value of the difference between Boost Pressure and BARO is greater than 10 kPa.

P2228

P2229

The ECM detects that the BARO sensor voltage is greater than 4.5 V for greater than 5 s.

P2230

The ECM detects that the cumulative difference between BARO sensor readings, over a specific length of time, is greater than a calibrated threshold.

Action Taken When the DTC Sets

DTCs P2227, P2228, P2229, and P2230 are Type B DTCs.

Conditions for Clearing the MIL/DTC

DTCs P2227, P2228, P2229, and P2230 are Type B DTCs.

Diagnostic Aids

A skewed boost pressure sensor (Turbocharger Boost/Intake Air Temperature Sensor) may cause this DTC to set.

Circuit/System Verification

1. Ignition On.

2. Verify the scan tool BARO parameter is within the range specified in the Altitude Versus Barometric Pressure table.

  • If the BARO is not within the specified range

Refer to Circuit/System Testing.

  • Go to next step: If the BARO is within the specified range

3. Verify the scan tool Boost Pressure parameter and the BARO parameter are within 3 kPa (0.43 PSI).

  • If not within 3 kPa (0.43 PSI)

Refer to DTC P0236.

  • Go to next step: If within 3 kPa (0.43 PSI)

4. Operate the vehicle within the Conditions for Running the DTC. You may also operate the vehicle within the conditions that you observed in the Freeze Frame/Failure Records data.

5. Verify the DTC does not set.

  • If the DTC sets

Refer to Circuit/System Testing.

  • Go to next step: If the DTC does not set

6. All OK.

Circuit/System Testing

1. Verify the conditions listed below do not exist with the B75C Multifunction Intake Air Sensor:

  • Damage
  • Restrictions in the inlet port
  • If a condition exists

Repair or replace the B75C Multifunction Intake Air Sensor as necessary.

  • Go to next step: If none of the conditions exist

2. Ignition Off, and all vehicle systems Off, it may take up to 2 min for all vehicle systems to power down. Disconnect the harness connector at the B75C Multifunction Intake Air Sensor.
