Lexus RX (RX 350L, RX450h) 2016-2024 Repair Manual: Low Pressure Fuel System Pressure - Too Low (P008A00)

DESCRIPTION

In order to supply the optimal fuel pressure according to the driving conditions and usage environment, the variable fuel system sends a drive signal from the ECM to the fuel pump control ECU assembly, steplessly performing variable control of the fuel pump (for low pressure side) and receiving feedback about the fuel pressure (for low pressure side) from the fuel pressure sensor (for low pressure side).

DTC No.

P008A00

Low Pressure Fuel System Pressure - Too Low

Actual fuel pressure (for low pressure side) value less than target fuel pressure (for low pressure side) by threshold or more (1 trip detection logic).

  • Leak of fuel
  • Fuel pump control ECU assembly
  • Fuel pressure sensor (for low pressure side)
  • Fuel pump (for low pressure side)
  • Fuel main valve assembly (for high pressure)
  • ECM

Does not come on

DTC stored

SAE Code: P008A

MONITOR DESCRIPTION

If the fuel pressure (for low pressure side) decreases despite an increase request signal being sent to the fuel pump control ECU assembly by the ECM, the ECM will store this DTC.

MONITOR STRATEGY

Frequency of Operation

Continuous

CONFIRMATION DRIVING PATTERN

  1. Connect the Techstream to the DLC3.
  2. Turn the engine switch on (IG) and turn the Techstream on.
  3. Clear the DTCs (even if no DTCs are stored, perform the clear DTC procedure).
  4. Turn the engine switch off and wait for at least 30 seconds.
  5. Turn the engine switch on (IG) and turn the Techstream on [A].
  6. Start the engine and warm it up [B].
  7. Drive the vehicle for 15 minutes or more [C].

    CAUTION:

    When performing the confirmation driving pattern, obey all speed limits and traffic laws.

  8. Enter the following menus: Powertrain / Engine / Trouble Codes [D].
  9. Read the pending DTCs.

    HINT:

    • If a pending DTC is output, the system is malfunctioning.
    • If a pending DTC is not output, perform the following procedure.
  10. Enter the following menus: Powertrain / Engine / Utility / All Readiness.
  11. Input the DTC: P008A00.
  12. Check the DTC judgment result.

    Techstream 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

    HINT:

    • If the judgment result shows NORMAL, the system is normal.
    • If the judgment result shows ABNORMAL, the system has a malfunction.
    • If the judgment result shows INCOMPLETE or N/A, perform steps [B] through [D] again.

CAUTION / NOTICE / HINT

HINT:

Read freeze frame data using the Techstream. The ECM records vehicle and driving condition information as freeze frame data the moment a DTC is stored. 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 FUEL LEAK

(a) Check around and beneath the vehicle for fuel leaks, fumes, etc.

OK:

No fuel leaks present.
