Diagnostic Fault Information

Circuit/System Description

The instrument cluster illuminates the traction/stability control indicator, the traction control off and the stability control off indicator for five seconds after the ignition is turned ON. When the electronic brake control module detects a fault it sends a serial data message to the instrument cluster commanding the traction/stability control indicator ON.

The body control module monitors the signal circuit from the traction control switch. When the traction control switch is pressed once, the body control module sends a serial data message to the electronic brake control module to disable the traction control system. The electronic brake control module will request the instrument cluster to turn the traction control off indicator ON to notify the driver of the deactivation. When the traction control switch is pressed and held for five seconds, the body control module will request the electronic brake control module to disable the electronic stability control. The electronic brake control module will request the instrument cluster to turn the stability control off indicator ON to notify the driver of the deactivation.

Circuit/System Description

Each wheel speed sensor receives ignition voltage through the signal high circuit from the electronic brake control module. Wheel speeds are detected by active wheel speed sensors and encoder rings. The magnetic encoder rings consists of multiple north and south pole pairs surrounding the outer circumference. When the encoder ring rotates and passes by the wheel speed sensor; it generates a sign wave in the wheel speed sensor.

The sensor converts the signal to a digital square wave; the square wave values switch between 7mA (Low) and 14mA (High) DC current. As the wheel spins, the module uses the frequency of the square wave signal to calculate the wheel speeds.

Conditions for Running the DTC

Vehicle speed is greater than 12.9 km/h (8 MPH).

Conditions for Setting the DTC

A supervised periodic message indicates the wheel speed serial data has not been received.

Action Taken When the DTC Sets

  • The traction/stability control indicator turns ON.
  • The electric brake control module disables the traction control, the stability control and the hill start assist for the duration of the ignition cycle.

Conditions for Clearing the DTC

  • The DTC clears when the diagnostic runs and passes.
  • The history DTC will clear after 40 consecutive fault-free drive cycles have occurred.
