OBD II Fault Code

  • OBD II P011B

    OBD-II Code Increased fuel consumption is defined as a Engine Coolant Temperature/Intake Air Temperature Correlation

    The Engine Coolant Temperature Sensor measures the temperature of the coolant going through the engine. The Intake Air Temperature Sensor measures the temperature of the air going into the engine. The engine control module (PCM) will compare the two readings to determine if sensors are reading correctly. When the PCM determines that one of the sensors has an irrational reading, it will set code P011B.

    Increased fuel consumption Symptoms

    • Increased fuel consumption

    Common Problems That Trigger the P011B Code

    • Engine coolant temperature (ECT) sensor failure
    • Intake Air Temperature (IAC) sensor failure
    • Powertrain Control Module (PCM) failure
    • Wiring issue

    Common Repairs Needed for the P011B Code
