DTC U2142 00
- Lost Communication With Yaw Rate Sensor (YRS)
Modules connected to the CAN bus serial data circuits monitor for serial data communications during normal vehicle operation. Operating
information and commands are exchanged among the modules. The modules have prerecorded information about what messages are needed to be
exchanged on the serial data circuits. The messages are supervised and also, some periodic messages are used by the receiver module as an
availability indication of the transmitter module. Each message contains the identification number of the transmitter module.
The electronic brake control module (EBCM) activates the other modules connected to the CAN serial data circuits by applying voltage when the
ignition key is in ACC, ON or START. The EBCM, Yaw Rate and Lateral Acceleration Sensor are the only modules connected to the CAN bus
serial data circuits. For more information on CAN bus serial data refer to Data Link Communications Description and Operation (See: Powertrain
Management/Computers and Control Systems/Information Bus/Description and Operation).
Conditions for Running the DTC
* The system voltage is between 9-16 volts.
* The vehicle power mode master requires serial data communication to occur.
Conditions for Setting the DTC
A supervised periodic message that includes the transmitter module availability has not been received.
Action Taken When the DTC Sets
* The vehicle stability enhancement system (VSES), if equipped, and traction control system (TCS) will not function.
* System OFF lamps will illuminate for these systems.
Conditions for Clearing the DTC
* A current DTC clears when the malfunction is no longer present.
* A history DTC clears when the module ignition cycle counter reaches the reset threshold of 50, without a repeat of the malfunction.
* Sometimes, while diagnosing a specific customer concern or after a repair, you may notice a history U-code present. However, there is no
associated "current" or "active" status. Loss-of- communication U-codes such as these can set for a variety of reasons. Many times, they are
transparent to the vehicle operator and technician, and/or have no associated symptoms. Eventually, they will erase themselves automatically
after a number of fault-free ignition cycles. This condition would most likely be attributed to one of these scenarios:
- A control module on the data communication circuit was disconnected while the communication circuit is awake.
- Power to one or more modules was interrupted during diagnosis.
- A low battery condition was present, so some control modules stop communicating when battery voltage drops below a certain threshold.
- Battery power was restored to the vehicle and control modules on the communication circuit did not all re-initialize at the same time.
- If a loss-of-communication U-code appears in history for no apparent reason, it is most likely associated with one of the scenarios above.
These are all temporary conditions and should never be interpreted as an intermittent fault, causing you to replace a part.
* A control module may have a U-code stored in history that does not require any repairs. Issues with late or corrupted messages between
control modules can be temporary with no apparent symptom or complaint; this does not mean the control module is faulty. Do not replace a
control module based only on a history U-code.
* Do not replace a control module reporting a U-code. The U-code identifies which control module needs to be diagnosed for a communication
* Communication may be available between the BCM and the scan tool with either the low or high speed GMLAN serial data system
inoperative. This condition is due to the BCM using both the low and high speed GMLAN systems.
* Use to determine if the module uses high or low speed GMLAN serial data communications.
* Some control modules may not have internal protection for specific control circuits and may open a B+ or ignition fuse. If a fuse is open and
the B+ or ignition circuit is not shorted to ground, ensure none of the control circuits are shorted to ground before replacing the control
* This diagnostic can be used for any control module that is not communicating, regardless of the type of serial data circuit it is connected to,
providing the vehicle is equipped with the control module.
