What the P0272 code means. This code means that the PCM (Powertrain Control Module) has identified that the reference voltage in cylinder #4’s fuel injector is out of range.

What causes P0272 code?

The definition of P0272 fault code is that there is a contribution/balance problem with cylinder #4. This code would be triggered in when the engine control module detects that the acceleration rate of the crankshaft for cylinder 4 was less than a calibrated amount.

What does cylinder contribution balance mean?

How does a cylinder balance test work?

To conduct the test, a spark plug wire from the spark plug has to be disconnected and grounded. The change in engine speed with the cylinder disconnected is the amount of drop caused by that cylinder. The test is continued by disconnecting the wire to each cylinder, one at a time, and recording the change.
