OBD-II Trouble Code Technical Description
Exhaust Valve Control Solenoid Circuit Range/Performance Bank 2
What does that mean?

This diagnostic trouble code (DTC) is a generic powertrain code, which means that it applies to OBD-II equipped vehicles, including but not limited to Toyota, VW, Ford, Dodge, Honda, Chevrolet, Hyundai, Audi, Acura, etc. Specific repair steps may vary depending on the model.

On vehicles equipped with variable valve timing (VVT), camshafts are controlled by hydraulic actuators fed by the engine oil system through control solenoids by the engine control module/powertrain control module (ECM/PCM). The ECM/PCM has detected the range of movement of the exhaust camshaft on bank 1 is out of specifications or not operating when commanded. Bank 2 refers to the side of the engine opposite from cylinder #1 – be sure to verify which side is correct according to manufacturers specifications. The exhaust valve control solenoid is typically located on the exhaust manifold side of the cylinder head.
