DTC Fault Trigger Conditions

DTC Description Fault Trigger Condition
TRM B10A1:78 Trailer Tow Detection: Alignment Or Adjustment Incorrect An on-demand DTC that sets when the TRM detects no trailer connected from the LH trailer turn/stoplamp output circuit.
TRM B1D08:11 Left Trailer Direction Indicator: Circuit Short To Ground A continuous memory and on-demand DTC that sets when the TRM detects a short to ground from the LH trailer stoplamp/turn signal output circuit.
TRM B1D08:12 Left Trailer Direction Indicator: Circuit Short To Battery A continuous memory and on-demand DTC that sets when the TRM detects a short to voltage from the LH trailer stoplamp/turn signal output circuit.
TRM B1D09:11 Right Trailer Direction Indicator: Circuit Short To Ground A continuous memory and on-demand DTC that sets when the TRM detects a short to ground from the RH trailer stoplamp/turn signal output circuit.
TRM B1D09:12 Right Trailer Direction Indicator: Circuit Short To Battery A continuous memory and on-demand DTC that sets when the TRM detects a short to voltage from the RH trailer stoplamp/turn signal output circuit.
TRM U1000:00 Solid State Driver Protection Active -Driver Disabled: No Sub Type Information A continuous DTC that sets when the TRM has temporarily shut down the output driver. The module has temporarily disabled a trailer stop/turn lamp output because an excessive current draw exists (such as a short to ground). The TRM cannot enable the trailer stop/turn lamp output until the cause of the short is corrected, the Diagnostic Trouble Codes (DTCs) have been cleared and a successful self-test is run.
TRM U3000:49 Control Module: Internal Electronic Failure A continuous DTC that sets when the TRM has permanently shut down the output driver. The module has permanently disabled a trailer stop/turn lamp output because an excessive current draw fault (such as a short to ground) has exceeded the limits that the TRM can withstand. The cause of the excessive current draw MUST be corrected before a new TRM is installed.
