DTC Descriptors

DTC B3006

Hood Ajar Circuit

For symptom byte information, refer to Symptom Byte List .

Diagnostic Fault Information

Diagnostic Fault Information

Circuit/System Description

The body control module (BCM) applies B+ to the hood ajar signal circuit and monitors the voltage to determine the position of the hood. When the hood is closed, the switch is open and voltage remains high.

When the hood is open, the switch is closed and the voltage is pulled low.

Conditions for Running the DTC

The BCM continuously monitors for this DTC

Conditions for Setting the DTC

B3006 01

The BCM detects that the hood ajar switch signal circuit is shorted to battery.

B3006 02

The BCM detects that the hood ajar switch signal circuit is shorted to ground.

B3006 04

The BCM detects that the hood ajar switch signal circuit is open.

Action Taken When the DTC Sets

The hood ajar switch input will be ignored as a content theft deterrent trigger.

  • Remote vehicle start (if equipped) will be disabled.

Conditions for Clearing the DTC

  • A current DTC will clear when the conditions for setting the DTC are no longer present.
  • A history DTC will clear after 40 malfunction free ignition cycles.

  • Control Module References for body control module replacement, programming, and setup.

Symptoms - bolted exterior body panels and closures

IMPORTANT: The following steps must be completed before using the symptom tables.

  1. Perform the Diagnostic System Check - Vehicle before using the symptom tables in order to verify that all of the following are true:
  • There are no DTCs set.
  • The control modules can communicate via the serial data links.
  1. Review the system operation in order to familiarize yourself with the system functions. Refer to Hood Ajar Indicator Description and Operation.

Visual/Physical Inspection

  • Inspect for aftermarket devices which could affect the operation of the systems. Refer to Checking Aftermarket Accessories .
  • Inspect the easily accessible or visible system components for obvious damage or conditions which could cause the symptom.

Intermittent

Faulty electrical connections or wiring may be the cause of intermittent conditions. Refer to Testing for Intermittent Conditions and Poor Connections .

Symptom List

Refer to Hood Ajar Indicator/Message Malfunction in order to diagnose the symptom.
