P0000 OBD-II Trouble Code

Description and meaning of DTC p0000

This is a code that is not often seen, that is quite simply because it's not a valid diagnostic trouble code so not many code reading devices display this code. Now, you might think that because it starts with P00 like the other P00xx codes that it is a generic powertrain code under the category Fuel Air Metering and Auxiliary Emission Controls Read. But, it's as we said, it's invalid. Please note that some code readers that display a P0000 code may indicate the description as No Self Diagnostic Failure Indicated or No Diagnostic Trouble Codes Found or possibly something else like Unknown.

You may wish to clear the code and check again later to see if the code returns. If it does you may want to use a more advanced scan tool next time. If you are having symptoms of a problem and there are other trouble codes along with a P0000, then you should first focus on repairing the other trouble codes. If there are no other codes and you have symptoms of a problem, you should then read the trouble codes again using a different, more advanced code scanner. Be sure to check with the manufacturer of the tool to see if your vehicle is supported.
