The cost of diagnosing the P0597 Chevrolet code is 1.0 hour of labor. The auto repair labor rates vary by location, your vehicle's make and model, and even your engine type. Most auto repairs shops charge between $75 and $150 per hour.
The P0597 is triggered when there is an open or short thermostat heather control circuit.
The Engine Control Module (ECM) controls the Pulse Width Modulated (PWM) thermostat. The engine coolant thermostat heater controls coolant flow and regulates the engine operating temperature. The ECM supplies 12 V to the thermostat. The ECM controls the engine coolant thermostat heater by grounding the control circuit with a solid state device called a driver. The driver is equipped with a feedback circuit that is pulled-up to a voltage. The ECM can determine if the control circuit is open, shorted to ground, or shorted to a voltage by monitoring the feedback voltage.
