A properly functioning fuel pump is vital to the overall drivability of your vehicle.

Diagnostic trouble code (DTC) P0627 stands for “Fuel Pump “A” Control Circuit/Open.” This code is logged when the powertrain control module (PCM) detects that the fuel pump is not operating properly.

The fuel pump is vital to the overall drivability of your vehicle. If the PCM detects a problem in the fuel pump “A” control circuit, then it will log error code P0627. The control circuit, on the other hand, is responsible for turning the pump on and off on command. An open within the said circuit can also trigger code P0627.

Depending on the severity of the problem, related error codes might also be stored with this DTC. Code P0627 is similar to error codes P0628, P0629, and P062A.
