Check engine light p3195

Does anyone know what this code stands for?

It first happened after I took it back from the dealership for a fuel pump recall a few weeks ago. Drive train malfunction message appeared and car entered limp mode, I restarted the car and it went back to normal. The CEL stayed on, but cleared itself after shutting down for 2 hours.


Today the CEL came back on, without the drive train malfunction message or limp mode. Again the CEL cleared itself after shutting down for a few hours.

If your car is PZEV N26 the dealer can fix the CEL issues even if the car is out of new-car warranty(but covered by PZEV emission warranty). However if the engine mod(as shown on signature) is the culprit then the dealer may deny PZEV coverage.

I can't be 100% sure, but I doubt it is the mod. Not a single CEL until the fuel pump recall. Besides the car is driving fine after restarting.

I searched and found definitions of CEL codes, but I can't find the one shown on my obdii scanner(p3195).

Going in for service stinks, they do provide me some nice loaners, but nothing beats the smell of my own car!
