DTC Fault Trigger Conditions

DTC Description Fault Trigger Condition
PCM P059F:00 Active Grille Air Shutter 'A' Performance/Stuck Off: No Sub Type Information When the grille shutter actuator senses it is unable to move the grille shutter, it sends a message to the PCM via the LIN . The PCM sets this DTC when the fault is communicated for a predetermined amount of time.
PCM P05A1:00 Active Grille Air Shutter 'A' Position Sensor Minimum/Maximum Stop Performance: No Sub Type Information When the grille shutter actuator senses it is unable to obtain a fully open or closed position of the grille shutter, it sends a message to the PCM via the LIN . The PCM then sets the DTC when the fault is communicated for a predetermined amount of time.
PCM P05A2:00 Active Grille Air Shutter 'A' Control Circuit/Open: No Sub Type Information ThisDTC sets when the grille shutter actuator control circuit H-Bridge is overheated or if a short to ground or open is detected in the actuator control circuit. The PCM sets this DTC when the condition is present for a predetermined amount of time.
PCM P05A7:00 Active Grille Air Shutter 'A' Supply Voltage Circuit Low: No Sub Type Information When the grille shutter actuator senses low voltage, it sends a message to the PCM via the LIN . The PCM sets this DTC when the fault is communicated for a predetermined amount of time.
PCM U0046:00 Vehicle Communication Bus C: No Sub Type Information This DTC sets when the PCM detects a short to voltage, ground or open in the LIN .
PCM U0284:00 Lost Communication with Active Grille Air Shutter Module 'A': No Sub Type Information When the PCM does not receive communication from the grille shutter actuator for a predetermined amount of time, the PCM sets this DTC .
