Causes of Trouble Code P0006

When seeing P0006, there may be a short in the sensor connector or in the wire going to the engine’s computer. There could also be a defect within the fuel shut off valve. If all these problems check out, there could be a malfunction in the engine’s computer.

How to Fix Trouble Code P0006

Save yourself time and money and validate the code. Clear the trouble code, drive the vehicle, and see if code P0006 reoccurs. If it is legitimate, inspect the wiring and sensor connector.
