Updated: Feb 4

✔ This article has been fact checked.

P000A is an OBD fault code that stands for "(A) Camshaft position slow response bank 1". This fault can occur for a variety of reasons.

A P000A trouble code means the camshaft's position varies from the position expected by the powertrain control module (PCM). The letter "A" shows that the problem is with the intake valves, and the word "Bank 1" shows that it is on the bank 1 side of the engine.

This code may be accompanied by a P0010 fault, indicating that bank 1 is the cause of the problem.

The fault codes P000B, P000C, and P000D are also related. P0011, P0012, P0013, P0014, P0015, P0020, P0021, P0022, P0023, P0024, and P0025 are some more codes that may occur.

If a DTC is related to the powertrain, it will begin with the letter "P" when read by an OBD reader. Fault codes in the P0xxx format are generic fault codes.
