Thank you. That code means that there is something wrong causing the engine to not be able to run. It can be anything from a fuel system problem to a bad sensor. Even a bad engine. With this few miles the most common cause I have found is the air intake tube from the air filter to the engine. This fails internally and restricts the flow of air into the engine. If that is fine then the fuel pressure needs to be checked. Did you plan on fixing this yourself?
