P0ae3 Gmc Description

The hybrid/EV battery contains 4 high voltage contactors and 1 solid state relay (transistor). The high voltage contactors and transistor allow the high voltage DC batteries to be connected to the vehicle or contain the high voltage DC within the hybrid/EV battery assembly. The 4 high voltage contactors consist of a main positive high voltage contactor, main negative high voltage contactor, charge positive high voltage contactor and a precharge negative high voltage contactor. The transistor controls the battery heater high voltage positive circuit. The contactors and transistor close and open in a specific sequence controlled by the hybrid/EV powertrain control module 2. The hybrid/EV powertrain control module 2 supplies voltage to the control circuit for each high voltage contactor/transistor. Ground is provided through a vehicle ground external of the high voltage battery.
