  • Accelerator Pedal Position circuit poor electrical connection

How do I fix code P1272 ACURA?

  Check the “Possible Causes” listed above. Visually inspect the related wiring harness and connectors. Check for damaged components and look for broken, bent, pushed out, or corroded connector’s pins.

Cost of diagnosing the P1272 ACURA code

  The cost of diagnosing the P1272 ACURA code is 1.0 hour of labor. The auto repair labor rates vary by location, your vehicle’s make and model, and even your engine type. Most auto repairs shops charge between $75 and $150 per hour.

When is the code detected

  The Engine Control Module (ECM) compared the signal from both Accelerator Pedal Position (APP) sensors and detected a voltage difference.

Possible Symptoms

  • Engine Light ON (or Service Engine Soon Warning Light)

P1272 ACURA Description

  The Accelerator Pedal Position (APP) sensors are located within the Throttle Actuator Control (TAC) module assembly. The TAC module assembly is mounted to the accelerator pedal bracket. There are 3 individual APP sensors within the TAC module. Three separate signal circuits, low reference circuits, and 5-volt reference circuits are used in order to determine the accelerator pedal position. The APP sensor signal voltages increase when the accelerator pedal is depressed.
