CHARGING SYSTEM, Diagnostic DTC:P161A

DTC Code DTC Name
P161A Lost Communication with Alternator

DESCRIPTION

The ECM and generator assembly each detect reception malfunctions. A generator assembly reception malfunction detected by the generator assembly is sent to the ECM via LIN communication. If there is a malfunction in either the ECM or generator assembly, the ECM determines that there is a LIN communication malfunction and outputs a DTC.

DTC No. Detection Item DTC Detection Condition Trouble Area Memory
P161A Lost Communication with Alternator

Diagnosis condition: Ignition switch to ON

When the ECM cannot receive LIN communication, the generator assembly cannot receive LIN communication for approximately 17 minutes or more.

Other: 1 trip
