B2783 Code:

OBD-II Diagnostic Body (B) Trouble Code

Possible Cause

To know real cause of B2783 based of if this code is present in your two-wheel drive vehicle, suspect a faulty PCM or programming error. In most four wheel drive applications the four-wheel drive switch is used to switch between two and four wheel drive operation, as well as between low and high ranges

Common Symptoms

  1. Using the digital volt/ohmmeter, check the resistance of the exhaust gas temp/pressure (or heated oxygen) sensor
  2. Look for shorted or burned wiring and replace circuitry and connectors as required
  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. To perform a thorough diagnosis, any transmission leaks should be repaired and the transmission should be filled with the proper amount and type of fluid (if the fluid smells really "burnt" and you are experienced enough to detect it, you may go ahead and condemn the transmission)

B2783 Troubleshooting

If this is the case with the code, you will be hearing very loud noises, like explosions, from the rear of the vehicle upon acceleration. Firstly check the carburetor to ensure that the fuel and air combination are properly balanced. If these settings are correct, then thoroughly inspect the distributor cap for any cracks or hairline splits, as this can produce a backfire. Move on to the spark plugs and ensure that they are clean and undamaged and inspect the engine gaskets for any sign of damage, as they are responsible for ensuring the correct gas exchange within the engine. B2783 OBD2 reports a sensor fault, replacement of the sensor is unlikely to resolve the underlying problem. The fault is most likely to be caused by the systems that the sensor is monitoring, but might even be caused by the wiring to the sensor itself.

How to turn off B2783 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.
