KJ 2.8 CRD Electrical / Code diagnostic required
KJ 2.8 CRD P2120 Code
Hello Team, I would greatly appreciate some technical assistance as to how to fix a problem I have with My 2004 KJ 2.8 CRD
It randomly (no warning whatsoever) loses accelerator function at any time whilst driving (sometimes twice in a day, sometimes not for months, but more often lately) - The motor will have no accelerator response whatsoever and goes to a fast idle (about 1300 rpm) I assume this is a 'Safe Mode' but cant be sure. Orange Check Engine Light Came up the first time it did this.
Truck is in very good condition and drives ok so not like a junker.
When I stop, turn the key of and restart, the engine goes back to normal and full use of the accelerator is available
I checked the codes with the turning the key trick and got
My garage guy could not get any info on what these codes meant (I am in New Zealand) so could not help me further
I took the Truck into the Jeep dealers here (who are very expensive by reputation - Andrew Simms) and got them to check the codes, and try to assess what the cause was. But I did ask for them not to waste too much time trying to find the cause unless they knew specifically what the problem was as I don't have a lot of money.
After they broke the internals of my key mechanism and charged me $900 to replace it, they said they could not find the issue without spend a whole lot of time on it.
I got the truck back with cleared codes though, so at least I got something eh. The Mechanic said he was trying to trace the wiring through to a Skim error according to the codes.
Anyway, two days later, same thing, no accelerator and orange engine light lit up.
I was able to check the codes after that occurrence. P2120
So now.....What does this mean?
And what exactly can I do to stop this thing from reoccurring?
