|U1849 CADILLAC code description

The Drive Motor Control Modules and the Hybrid/EV Powertrain Control Module 1 are all internal to the Power Inverter Module. The Drive Motor Control Modules communicate only with the Hybrid/EV Powertrain Control Module 1 which sends out diagnostic trouble code information to other devices regarding the Drive Motor Control Modules. All circuits to the Hybrid/EV Powertrain Control Module 1 and Drive Motor Control Modules are also internal to the Power Inverter Module and replaced as a single component.
Communication diagnostics for the serial data, including device power and ground as well as the wakeup circuits for Drive Motor Control Modules and the Hybrid/EV Powertrain Control Module 1 are all diagnosed from external sources only to the Power Inverter Module connector because any circuit fault condition within the Power Inverter Module will cause a complete replacement.
The Diagnostic Trouble Code (DTC) will set when a supervised periodic message that includes the transmitter device availability has not been received.
