SFI SYSTEM (w/ Dual VVT-i), Diagnostic DTC:P2111, P2112

DTC Code DTC Name
P2111 Throttle Actuator Control System - Stuck Open
P2112 Throttle Actuator Control System - Stuck Closed

DESCRIPTION

The throttle actuator is operated by the ECM and opens and closes the throttle valve using gears. The opening angle of the throttle valve is detected by the throttle position sensor, which is mounted on the throttle body. The throttle position sensor provides feedback to the ECM so that the ECM can control the throttle actuator (throttle valve) appropriately in response to driver inputs.

Tech Tips

This ETCS (Electronic Throttle Control System) does not use a throttle cable.

DTC No. DTC Detection Condition Trouble Area
P2111 Throttle actuator does not close even when the ECM commands it to close (1 trip detection logic).
  • Throttle actuator

  • Throttle valve

  • Throttle body assembly

  • Wire harness or connector

P2112 Throttle actuator does not open even when the ECM commands it to open (1 trip detection logic).
  • Throttle actuator

  • Throttle valve

  • Throttle body assembly

  • Wire harness or connector

MONITOR DESCRIPTION

The ECM determines that there is a malfunction in the ETCS when the throttle valve remains at a fixed angle despite a high drive current from the ECM. The ECM illuminates the MIL and stores a DTC.

If the malfunction is not repaired successfully, a DTC is stored when the accelerator pedal is fully depressed and released quickly (to fully open and close the throttle valve) after the engine is next started.

CONFIRMATION DRIVING PATTERN

B007RIWE14

  1. Connect the GTS to the DLC3.

  2. Turn the ignition switch to ON and turn the GTS on.

  3. Clear the DTCs (even if no DTCs are stored, perform the clear DTC operation).

  4. Turn the ignition switch off and wait for at least 30 seconds.

  5. Turn the ignition switch to ON and turn the GTS on [A].

  6. Start the engine and fully depress and release the accelerator pedal quickly (to fully open and close the throttle valve).

  7. Enter the following menus: Powertrain / Engine and ECT / Trouble Codes [B].

  8. Read the pending DTCs.

    Tech Tips


    • If a pending DTC is output, the system is malfunctioning.

    • If a pending DTC is not output, perform the following procedure.

  9. Enter the following menus: Powertrain / Engine and ECT / Utility / All Readiness.

  10. Input the DTC: P2111 or P2112.

  11. Check the DTC judgment result.

    GTS Display Description
    NORMAL
    • DTC judgment completed

    • System normal

    ABNORMAL
    • DTC judgment completed

    • System abnormal

    INCOMPLETE
    • DTC judgment not completed

    • Perform driving pattern after confirming DTC enabling conditions

    N/A
    • Unable to perform DTC judgment

    • Number of DTCs which do not fulfill DTC preconditions has reached ECU memory limit

    Tech Tips


    • If the judgment result shows NORMAL, the system is normal.

    • If the judgment result shows ABNORMAL, the system has a malfunction.

  12. If the judgment result shows INCOMPLETE or N/A, perform steps [A] through [B] again and, if necessary, drive the vehicle for a period of time.

FAIL-SAFE

When either of these DTCs or other DTCs relating to ETCS (Electronic Throttle Control System) malfunctions are stored, the ECM enters fail-safe mode. During fail-safe mode, the ECM cuts the current to the throttle actuator and the throttle valve is returned to a 6° throttle angle by the return spring. The ECM then adjusts the engine output by controlling the fuel injection (intermittent fuel-cut) and ignition timing in accordance with the accelerator pedal position to allow the vehicle to continue at a minimal speed. If the accelerator pedal is depressed firmly and gently, the vehicle can be driven slowly.

The ECM continues operating in fail-safe mode until a pass condition is detected, and the ignition switch is then turned off.

INSPECTION PROCEDURE

Tech Tips

Read freeze frame data using the GTS. Freeze frame data records the engine condition when malfunctions are detected. When troubleshooting, freeze frame data can help determine if the vehicle was moving or stationary, if the engine was warmed up or not, if the air-fuel ratio was lean or rich, and other data from the time the malfunction occurred.

PROCEDURE


  1. CHECK FOR ANY OTHER DTCS OUTPUT (IN ADDITION TO DTC P2111 OR P2112)


    1. Connect the GTS to the DLC3.

    2. Turn the ignition switch to ON.

    3. Turn the GTS on.

    4. Enter the following menus: Powertrain / Engine and ECT / Trouble Codes.

    5. Read the DTCs.

      Result
      Result Proceed to
      P2111 or P2112 is output A
      P2111 or P2112 and other DTCs are output B

      Tech Tips

      If any DTCs other than P2111 or P2112 are output, troubleshoot those DTCs first.

  2. INSPECT THROTTLE BODY ASSEMBLY (VISUALLY CHECK THROTTLE VALVE)


    1. Check for contamination between the throttle valve and housing. If necessary, clean the throttle body. Also, check that the throttle valve moves smoothly.
