<hr> Condition

Some customers may comment that the malfunction indicator lamp (MIL) is illuminated or intermittent and there is a significant reduction in engine power (limp home mode).
The scan tool may display one or more Injector Driver Circuit DTCs P0201, P0202, P0203, P0204, P0205, P0206, P0207 or P0208 and/or Cylinder Bank Shut Down DTCs P2146 or P2149 set as Current or in History.
Cause

This condition may be caused by the fuel injector control module (FICM) wiring harness protective conduit rubbing against the back of the alternator, the alternator bracket or the FICM harness retaining bracket. This may result in the conduit rubbing through, exposing the wires inside and chafing of the wire insulation then occurs.
Correction


  1. Turn ON the ignition, with the engine OFF.
  2. Observe the DTC information with the scan tool.
  3. If any of the above DTCs are set, then proceed to inspect the FICM wiring harness at the locations outlined in the following steps.
  4. Turn OFF the ignition and all accessories and allow the control modules to power down.Note: For Silverado and Sierra models only perform Step 5.
  5. Remove the air cleaner outlet duct. Refer to Air Cleaner Outlet Duct Replacement in SI.

  7. Carefully bend up and backwards the FICM wiring harness electrical connectors (1) away from the FICM (4).

    Note: Some of these chafes are very small, possibly the size of a pen tip, but could still cause injector circuit concerns.
  8. Inspect the wiring harness for chafing (3) that may result from rubbing at the back of the alternator (2), the alternator bracket or at the FICM harness retaining bracket.If necessary, peel the tape from the area and look for ANY chafes into the wires.

    <table border="0"><tbody><tr><td valign="top">⇒</td><td valign="top">If chafing IS NOT OBSERVED , then refer to the appropriate DTC Diagnostic procedures in SI. </td></tr></tbody></table>​
  9. Connect the electrical connectors to the FICM.
  10. Insulate the harness with suitable material such as conduit or heater hose to prevent a reoccurrence.Note: For Silverado and Sierra models only perform Step 11.
  11. Install the air cleaner outlet duct. Refer to Air Cleaner Outlet Duct Replacement in SI.
  12. Clear the DTCs with a scan tool.
