P1214 GMC Meaning

The Powertrain Control Module (PCM) monitors crankshaft position through the Crankshaft Position (CKP) sensor. The CKP info is used to determine the amount of injection timing offset necessary for proper operation. This code will set if the TDC-Offset is greater than +2.46 degrees or less than -2.46 degrees. Sounds like you need to perform a TDC-Offset Learn procedure.
