P115e Description

During idle, the Powertrain Control Module (PCM) monitors the throttle angle and air flow. If the air flow is determined to be less than expected, the PCM adjusts the throttle angle to compensate. The air flow reduction is typically the result of engine deposit buildup around the throttle plate. The P115E code indicates the PCM has reached the maximum allowed compensation and is no longer able to compensate for the buildup.
