P0A90 CHEVROLET Description

The generator control module also called the starter generator control module is comprised of the following three control modules; the hybrid powertrain control module, 14 volt power module and the drive motor control module. These three control modules are non serviceable and are part of the generator control module.
The eAssist hybrid system has a starter generator also called a drive motor. The starter generator is mounted to the front of the engine and is mechanically connected to the crankshaft pulley by a serpentine belt.
The hybrid powertrain control module receives an engine RPM signal over serial data and compares that value to the starter generator rpm received from the drive motor control module. The hybrid powertrain control module uses a ratio of these two speeds to determine if the drive belt is missing or slipping.
