Modules connected to the class 2 and high-speed General Motor Local Area Network (GMLAN) serial data circuits monitor for serial data communications during normal vehicle operation. Operating information and commands are exchanged among the modules. The Diagnostic Trouble Code (DTC) is reported on a class 2 link to the scan tool by Powertrain Control Module (PCM) even if they may be set by different modules. The DTC will set when a node alive message has not been received from an identified module within the last 5 seconds after establishing class 2 serial data communication, or a supervised high-speed GMLAN message has not been received.
