Our automotive experts have put together the following information about the P20E7 diagnostic trouble code. We've provided the common symptoms that occur when this code is set along with the frequent repairs that address the issues related to the P20E7 code.

OBD II Fault Code

  • OBD II P20E7

    OBD-II Code Powertrain Control Module (PCM) failure is defined as a Reductant Injection Air Pressure Too High

    Diesel Exhaust Fluid (DEF) is used to assist in converting leftover exhaust particles to harmless gases. In order to burn off those particles, the temperature of the exhaust system needs to increase. the injection of DEF Fluid into the exhaust stream brings Diesel Particulate Filter (DPF) up to temperature. The system is then able to convert harmful NOx to Nitrogen, Carbon Dioxide, and water. The pressure of this system is monitored by the Reductant Pressure Sensor. If the system does not hold enough pressure, code P20E7 will be stored.
