Power Steering Pressure Sensor/Switch Circuit Low Input
What does the code mean? OBD-ii Code P0552 definition:
Power steering pressure (PSP) sensor is installed to the power steering high-pressure tube and detects a power steering load. This sensor is a potentiometer which transforms the power steering load into output voltage, and emits the voltage signal to the ECM or PCM. The ECM or PCM controls the electric throttle control actuator and adjusts the throttle valve opening angle to increase the engine speed and adjusts the idle speed for the increased load.
