- Faulty coolant pump
First diagnose P0C15 code
Check the "Possible Causes" listed above. Visually inspect the related wiring harness and connectors. Check for damaged components and look for broken, bent, pushed out, or corroded connector's pins.
Cost of diagnosing the P0C15 code
Labor: 1.0The cost of diagnosing the P0C15 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.
When is the P0C15 code detected?The code is set when the control unit has detected an in-range over-temperature condition that can potentially damage inverter.
P0C15 Possible Symptoms
- Engine Light ON (or Service Engine Soon Warning Light)
P0c15 DescriptionThe Power Inverter Module, often referred to as the Drive Motor Generator Power Inverter Module, contains two motor control modules and the hybrid powertrain control module. Each motor control modules operates its respective drive motor generator based upon hybrid powertrain control module commands. Each motor control modules controls the speed, direction and output torque of its respective drive motor generator through the sequencing actuation of high current switching transistors called insulated gate bipolar transistors. Each drive motor generator operates utilizing 3 phase AC. Each insulated gate bipolar transistor operates a single phase of the drive motor generator. Each phase is individually identified as U, V and W. Each motor control modules monitors the temperature of each phase in order to detect power inverter module overtemperature conditions.
