CEL - P2290 error code

Had a few times in the past week or so that the engined seemed to take a little longer than usual to fire up (extended cranking times). Didn't think much of it since we haven't been driving it much, and with our solar panels on the fritz, I just figured that the batteries had run down somewhat.

Well on the way into work this morning under hard acceleration, the Check Engine Light (CEL) came on. Used my Scanguage to get the error code, which was P2290. This looks like it could be an Injector Control Pressure (ICP - injector seal) issue, and/or the High Pressure Oil Pump (HPOP). With just over 40,000 miles on the clock it should be covered by warranty, but I can't get into my local Ford dealer until 4 Aug. Not enough Ford diesel techs to go around, and the dealership in the next town I won't go to.

I guess I'll have a large red lawn ornament at my house until the 4th. From what I've read, the symptoms can get worse and worse, and as some here have experieinced, leave you stranded.

Will post updates/resolution sometime after the 4th.

Re: CEL - P2290 error code

The van is back.

Dealership performed some tests which returned codes P0611/1378. The service tech correlated this to a Ford TSB 08-26-03, and ended up reflashing the computer. This TSB involves the Fuel Injection Control Module (FICM), which clearly sounds like a possible culprit. So, the codes are now gone and they can't recreate the problem so the problem must be fixed, right? I'm hoping so, but part of me wants to know there was a specific failure and the failed part was replaced.

I've attached a copy of the TSB that I was able to locate. Interestingly, the TSB talks about "An improperly operating vehicle battery(s) or charging system can cause additional operating loads to the internal components of the FICM due to low power supply voltages." I know my house battery was low due to solar panel issues and not driving the van much, but I wonder if the van batteries were getting low and contributing to the error codes? Time will tell I guess, but the reflash was covered under (emissions) warranty with no deductible. The van drove fine on the way home, but I'll need to drive it hard up some hills just to be sure.

BTW, I had both fuel filters replaced ($163 parts & labor).
