12 is problem with battery connection. Direct battery input to pcm disconnected within the last 50 ignition key on cycles. 27 is one of the injector control center output drivers does not respond properly to the control signal. Check the circuits. 55 is completion of codes.

21 is problem with oxygen sensor signal circuit. Sensor voltage to computer not fluctuation.
