B0890 Code:

OBD-II Diagnostic Body (B) Trouble Code

Possible Cause

Common causes of B0890 include a faulty electronic pressure control solenoid, hydraulic blockages inside the internal transmission fluid passages, mechanical internal transmission failures, low transmission fluid, dirty or contaminated transmission fluid, a faulty PCM or transmission control module.

Common Symptoms

  1. The purpose of this valve is to allow the transmission to reach normal operating temperature more rapidly
  2. Unlike other diagnostic codes, this type of code can sometimes be best left to a professional simply because of the bulk of circuitry involved
  3. Some applications also utilize the inlet door to regulate air flow through the intake tube by adjusting the degree to which the door opens according to throttle position
  4. Typical causes of low pump pressure include clogged hydraulic passages, a defective pump, faulty shift solenoids, or a faulty electronic pressure regulator

B0890 Troubleshooting

A sure sign of this is smoke or steam being emitted from underneath the hood. The ignition timing could be set incorrectly and will require adjustment. If, when looking under the hood, you notice that the drive belts appear loose, they need to be tightened or completely replaced. If there is a noticeable pool of fluid underneath the car, this could be a sign of the cylinder head gasket failing. That will be confirmed in the form of billowing smoke being blown from the exhaust system. B0890 OBD2 may also be triggered by faults earlier down the line. For example, a dirty MAF sensor might be causing the car to overcompensate in its fuel-trim adjustments. As a result, oxygen sensors are likely to report fuel mixture problems.

How to turn off B0890 check engine light ?

There are two ways to turn off the check engine light:

A repair technician can do so once repairs have been made.
The OBD II can automatically turn it off when it fails to detect the problem after several diagnostic cycles.
