DIESEL CONTROL SYSTEM
DTC P1185 FUEL PRESSURE MONITORING-MAXIMUM PRESSURE
Fuel pressure regulator valve
As inputted rail pressure sensor signal, ECM of Commom rail diesel engine controls Fuel pressure regulator valve(inter-
grated with high press. pump) and rail pressure regulator valve(ntegrated with common rail) in order to maintain optimum
rail pressure according to current engine rpm and load. However when the problem that leads rail pressure to out of target
value intended by ECM occurs due to mechanical or electronical reason, ECM shuts engine down and sets DTC by lim-
iting fuel (stops injector operation) in order to prevent engine from being controlled abnormally. "rail pressure monitoring
error" is the DTC which diagnose 1).supplying state of low pressure fuel and 2).mechanical operating conditions of high
pressure pump and 3). rail pressure regulator valve indirectly based on RPS output voltage and RPS duty. thus, repair
relavant to this DTC requires mechanics the total understand of fuel system.
P1185 is set when 1)rail press. is higher than target rail press. by 200bar in condition that rail press. is controlled by Fuel
pressure regulator valve or 2)rail press. exceeds maximum limiting value. This code is due to 1)more than intended fuel
supply to common rail or 2)poor return of fuel supplied to common rail or 3)short to high voltage line in fuel press. sensor.
