  • Starter/Generator Control Module (SGCM) circuit poor electrical connection

Possible symptoms

  • Engine Light ON (or Service Engine Soon Warning Light)

P1a98 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 volts DC and 14 volts DC buses via the APM, bi-directional 42 volts DC to 14 volts DC converter. All APM functions shall only be run when in the enable mode. APM current shall be defined as the current flowing through the outputs. The current shall be bi-directional, with negative current representing 14-42 volts direction, and positive current representing the 42-14 volts direction.

The Starter/Generator Control Module (SGCM) controls 2 functions in these DTCs. DC voltage is transformed into three phase AC power to the electric machine interface. In this case, energy flows from 36 volt to phase1, phase2 and phase3. The second case shall be generating, where the three phase AC power is used to charge the 36 volt battery pack. In this case, energy flows from phase1, phase2 and phase3 to 36 volts.
