|U1421 DODGE code description

The Body Control Module (BCM) monitors the time the ignition is in the off or accessory position between key cycles and then broadcasts the signal called Ignition Off Time (IOT) via the CANC Bus. The Powertrain Control Module (PCM) saves the value from a previous key cycle into powerdown flash and if certain When Monitored conditions are met compares to the current value. If the Set Conditions are met, then a fault U1421 is set indicating the timer is stuck. If this fault becomes active the PCM will light the MIL light immediately. If the MIL is set and the fault goes stored the PCM turns off the MIL after 3 consecutive drive cycles. If the difference between two Ignition Off Times (IOT) sent from the BCM to the PCM during two separate diagnostic decisions is less than 3 minutes for 5 consecutive decisions this fault will set.
