What Does P2072 Code Mean?

    OBD-II Code P2072 is defined as a Throttle Actuator Control System - Ice Blockage

    The engine computer (PCM) is capable of detecting ice build up on the throttle body during cold startup. Many times, a blocked or leaking PCV can cause ice/oil build up in the throttle body or intake manifold that will lead to extended crank times during cold starts. If ice buildup is detected, code P2072 will set.
