P1222 DODGE Meaning

When the engine is motoring (i.e. Engine is running but requires no fuel injection) the only required fuel delivery to the rail is due to natural leakage in the system. The natural leakage depends directly on the rail pressure. A definite amount of fuel is required to overcome the natural leakage, for different fuel pressures. The Engine Control Module (ECM) sets Leakage Detected when the fuel flow exceeds an expected value. When a leak is detected in the system, a counter is initiated. When the counter reaches a predetermined value, a fault is set and engine derate is enabled. When the leak is not detected the counter counts down, and once the counter becomes zero the engine is set back to normal running conditions. The Diagnostic Trouble Code (DTC) will set when the counter reaches a calibrated value.
