Hi,

Hello and welcome to everyone.

I wonder if someone can help me, I have a mondeo mk3 tdci that will not start. I have plugged it into the computer and came up with the following code, P2291 Injector control pressure too low. I have tried starting with easy start and will not start. The car was running fine, the last time i started it.

I am no mechanic, I have checked all fuses etc, they all seem fine, any help would be much appreciated.

Thanks

Mark :lol:

There are several things that can cause this, first try is always the fuel filter when was it last changed?

Prior to this how was the car running, any excessive smoke?

The joys of buying a high mileage car
rear subframe bushes replaced, battery replaced, centre wheel caps replaced, wheels refurbished,  new egr valve and manifold cleaned, both thermostats replaced, water pump and power steering pump replaced, rear ARB bushes and drop link replaced, offside rear ABS wire replaced, exhaust replaced, Parrot MKi9200 fited, two new hubs wheel bearings tyres brake discs and pads and still more to do!!

hi, thanks or your reply, the fuel filter was changed around 2 thousand miles ago,BOSCH filter I believe.When the car was running there was no excessive smoke.

When i try to start the car its just turning and not firing.

Thanks

Did this start around the time of the new filter? Someone fitted the pipes backwards?

Been done before.


Check the Filter is a Bosch one and check around the engine for fuel leaks.

Some live data would be useful, If you have a laptop an F-Super off ebay is under £20.

Examples... http://www.talkford....ould-look-like/



What year is the car? Mileage? Service history?

2004 TDCi 130 LX Estate. (6)

Adding your location may find someone local who could offer assistance.

F-Super, Bluetooth OBDII (ELM) and a MS509 scanners (test subjects required).

also check these two items .. the key fob immobilizer and the cam sensor .. either or these may cause total shutdown . but the low pressure for the pump reading shuld be investigated further by doing a cold pressure test on the pump .. to see if it is putting a reasonalbe pressure to the injectors . becasese a bad or discharged battery will not give enought whip round to the enigine to raise sufficent pump pressure.. and then if the diagnostics u used were used whilst using a battery in a state of discharge you will always get bad pump pressure diagnostics . most diagnostic equipment is not specific and will reflect the condition of the engine s ancillary equipment . i..e bad battery .. bad alternator .. bad fuel .. or worst cast scenario . a broken injector fuel pump.. s
