Trouble Code: P150C



Transmission Control Module (TCM) Engine Speed Request Circuit

Possible Causes:



Use the DTC Descriptor list to determine the module which is not communicating. If there are multiple non-communicating modules in series on high speed GMLAN, choose the one closest to the data link connector (DLC) for this diagnostic.
 

Trouble Code: P1516



Throttle Actuator Control (TAC) Module Throttle Actuator Position Performance

Possible Causes:



Inspect the TAC module connectors for signs of water intrusion. If water intrusion occurs, multiple DTCs may set without any circuit or component conditions found during diagnostic testing.
 
Verify that the starting and charging systems are operating properly. Low system voltage can cause this DTC to set.
 
When the TAC module detects a condition within the TAC system, more than one TAC system related DTC may set. This is due to the many redundant tests run continuously on this system. Locating and repairing an individual condition may correct more than one DTC. Disconnecting components during testing may set additional DTCs. Remember this if you review the stored information in Capture Info.
 
For an intermittent, refer to Testing for Intermittent Conditions and Poor Connections .
 

Trouble Code: P1574



Stoplamp Switch Circuit

Possible Causes:



Refer to Exterior Lighting Systems Description and Operation in order to avoid a misdiagnosis.
 
For an intermittent condition, refer to Testing for Intermittent Conditions and Poor Connections .
 

Trouble Code: P1600



Control Module Long Term Memory Performance

Trouble Code: P160C



Engine Calibration Information Not Programmed - GPCM

Trouble Code: P1621



Control Module Long Term Memory Performance

Trouble Code: P1626



Theft Deterrent Fuel Enable Signal Lost

Possible Causes:

Important: Do not clear DTCs unless directed by a diagnostic procedure. Clearing DTCs will also clear valuable Freeze Frame and Failure Records data.



Inspect for published service bulletins relating to exhibited symptoms or component operation.
 
Inspect all related wiring and connections including the PCM and BCM connections. These may cause an intermittent malfunction.
 
If the class 2 serial data circuit is shorted to ground or shorted to voltage, then all systems connected to the serial data circuit will not be able to communicate properly. Systems capable of storing loss of communications DTCs, or the DTCs with the letter "U" as a prefix, will have these codes stored in their memory. If a DTC U1192 is stored in the PCM memory along with the P1626, then a fault occurred at some point after the PCM received the correct password. The BCM must also be inspected for intermittent operation due to a loss of power or ground to the module itself. After repairing the cause of DTC 1626, clear all DTCs from the systems capable of storing this DTC and DTC U1192.
 
The VTD Passlock parameters can be monitored in the PCM under engine data 2, display with a scan tool.
 
The scan tool Diagnostic Circuit Check can be used to:

Monitor the class 2 serial data circuit for modules which have been or are communicating.
 
Monitor for loss of communications DTCs with the letter "U" as a prefix: U1001-U1199.
 
Clear loss of communication DTCs. When a Clear Codes command is issued, all codes, Freeze Frame and Failure Records information is cleared.
 

The scan tool Class 2 Message Monitor will show the status of each module on the class 2 circuit. A status of Active indicates that the module is communicating with the scan tool. An Inactive status indicates that the module previously communicated with the scan tool, but is not communicating currently. The inactive status will only appear if the loss of communication occurs while on the Message Monitor screen. If a module is not listed at all, then the missing module never successfully established communications with the scan tool or lost communication while on another screen. Refer to Scan Tool Does Not Communicate with Class 2 Device in Computer/Integrating Systems for the complete class 2 data link to determine if there are any unlisted modules.An intermittent may be caused by any of the following conditions:

A poor connection
 
Rubbed through wire insulation
 
A broken wire inside the insulation
 

Thoroughly inspect any circuitry that is suspected of causing the intermittent complaint. Refer to Testing for Intermittent Conditions and Poor Connections in Wiring Systems.If a repair is necessary, refer to Wiring Repairs or Connector Repairs in Wiring Systems.

Trouble Code: P1631



Theft Deterrent Fuel Enable Signal Not Correct

Possible Causes:

Important: Do not clear DTCs unless directed by a diagnostic procedure. Clearing DTCs will also clear valuable Freeze Frame and Failure Records data.



If the PCM is replaced, the PCM must re-learn a valid password and crankshaft variation.
 
If the BCM is replaced, the PCM must re-learn a valid password.
 
Check for published service bulletins relating to exhibited symptoms or component operation.
 
If the vehicle does not start, or starts and stalls:

Turn OFF the ignition and wait at least 5 seconds before trying to restart.
 
If a fault or tamper has been detected, the BCM will not forward the correct password to the PCM for a period of 10 minutes, even if the condition is corrected during that time period. This may cause a DTC P1631 to set in the PCM. This timer can be monitored in the Passlock Data parameter of the scan tool. Once the time has elapsed, the BCM will determine if the condition is still present.
 

The PCM and BCM parameters can be monitored with a scan tool.The Passlock state and the auto learn timer can be viewed in the Passlock Data parameter of the scan tool.Inspect the following for preventing the Passlock sensor from communicating with the BCM:

Passlock sensor
 
Ignition switch assembly
 
Passlock sensor circuitry
 
Bent pins at the small Passlock sensor
 

If this DTC sets along with a DTC B2960, then the problem was caused by malfunctioning Passlock components or circuitry, not the PCM.Inspect all related wiring and connections including the PCM and BCM connections. These may cause an intermittent malfunction.An intermittent may be caused by any of the following conditions:

A poor connection
 
Rubbed through wire insulation
 
A broken wire inside the insulation
 

Thoroughly inspect any circuitry that is suspected of causing the intermittent complaint. Refer to Testing for Intermittent Conditions and Poor Connections in Wiring Systems.If a repair is necessary, refer to Wiring Repairs or Connector Repairs in Wiring Systems.
