P1a94 Chevrolet Description

The purpose of the Accessory Power Module (APM), integral to the Starter/Generator Control Module (SGCM), is to control the amount and direction of energy flowing between the 42 V DC and 14 V DC buses via the APM, bi-directional 42 V DC to 14 V DC converter. All APM functions will only be run when in the enable mode. APM current will be defined as the current flowing through the outputs. APM power is bidirectional, with negative current representing 14-42 direction, and positive current representing the 42-14 direction.

When the APM Power Conversion direction is set to a value of 42 V to 14 V, the energy will flow from the 42 V DC Bus to the 14 V DC Bus via the APM. When the Service Charge or jump start is requested, the energy will flow from the 14 V DC Bus to the 42 V DC Bus via the APM. When the APM Power Conversion direction is set to a value of Off, the APM will be turned OFF and not consume or transfer any power. When the APM Power Conversion direction is set to a value of Invalid, the energy will flow from the 42 V DC Bus to the 14 V DC Bus via the APM.
