P1199 Code:

OBD-II Diagnostic Powertrain (P) Trouble Code

Possible Cause

The reason of P1199 is system wiring, connectors, or other electrical components are also subject to failure. When this code is set, it is imperative that the transmission be checked prior to further vehicle operation.

Common Symptoms

  1. Several tools will be instrumental in successfully diagnosing this code
  2. This will help to determine whether or not the malfunction is intermittent. After the codes are cleared, test drive the vehicle to see if the code returns
  3. If the initial resistance is within specifications, leave the leads of the digital volt/ohmmeter connected and heat the resistor with a heat gun
  4. Should all system circuitry and sensors check out and the transmission is in good working order, suspect a faulty PCM but keep in mind that PCM failure is rare and PCM replacement will require reprogramming.

P1199 Troubleshooting

Broken engine mountings can cause banging and graunching noises. There are two main types of mounting those centrally placed close to the bottom of the block and those higher up the block which mount on to the inner wings or chassis members. P1199 OBD2 specifically refers to the camshaft (cam) timing. In this case, if the cam timing is over-retarded, the engine light will be illluminated and the code will be set.
