It's a 1995 Saturn sl the clutch on ac compressor kicks on with direct power the engine fan also changed relays still get the code 26 quad drive modal need some help


This info is from 1998 Saturn Sl , my service info doesn't go to 95 . It's the same except for code numbers , My info is P0xxx #'s . The quad driver is part of the ECM - engine computer !
Here is a description from Saturn service info .
A quad driver module (QDM) is an electronic switch which completes a ground circuit when switching ON. The QDM independently controls 4 separate outputs. A load is connected between battery voltage and the QDM allowing the QDM driver to control the output. Each QDM has fault detection logic which compares QDM driver input and output voltages. The logic expects to measure less than 3 volts when the QDM driver is ON and greater than 7 volts when OFF. The QDM has only one fault line that will detect a fault on any of the 4 outputs. The scan tool can be used to cycle the outputs ON or OFF. The scan tool can also perform an automated test which can isolate the faulty circuit.
The quad drive it self may be bad , GM had a problem with these !
Did you check fuse's ?
Conditions for Setting the DTC
DTC P01650 and/or P1651 will set if:
?€¢
There is an open, short to ground or short to voltage on any of the QDM output circuits


?€¢
MIL (SERVICE ENGINE SOON) telltale circuit


?€¢
Upshift lamp circuit


?€¢
Cooling fan relay circuit


?€¢
A/C relay circuit


?€¢
Fault detected for 5 seconds for DTC P1651. Fault detected for 20 seconds for DTC P1650.

Important: The QDM circuit is continuously checked when the engine is running.

P0300 and P0135


The P0135 code indicates the bank 1 oxygen sensor 1 heater circuit is defective. Probable causes are:
1. Faulty sensor/solenoid
2. Damaged or corroded connector terminal contact
3. Wire harness fault. Check for correct voltage, open, short to ground, short to voltage
4. Open fuse

The P0300 code indicates random multiple misfires have been detected. Probable causes:
1. Vacuum leaks. Damaged hoses or incorrect routing
2. Fuel contamination
3. Ignition system fault. Check ignition module, coil, spark plugs, and wires
4. Fuel system problem

Rapid Continuous Flashing of Air Bag Indicator (No Diagnostic Trouble Code) Both Primary Crash Sensors Disconnected Assembly Plant Mode

TROUBLE CODE CLEARING

1. Follow the diagnostic procedures to service the fault condition flashing on the air bag indicator prior to code clearing.

2. Cycle the ignition switch to OFF and then to RUN.

3. Observe air bag indicator prove-out (six ? two seconds) followed by diagnostic trouble code (52-85) flashing completely one time.

4. Locate the Diagnostic "Trouble Code Clear" Connector (grey connector). located underneath the glove compartment, left side (06010) containing Circuits 631 (T/R) and 57 (BK).

5. Use a jumper wire to short Circuit 631 (T/R) to Circuit 57 (BK) or to another good ground. This short must be made after the diagnostic trouble code flashes completely one time, but before the warning light stays on continuously.

6. Hold short until air bag diagnostic monitor tone sounds (approximately five seconds).

7. Release short on Circuit 631 (T/R) to Circuit 57 (BK). This short must be released within 25 seconds after the diagnostic monitor tone sounds.

Diagnostic trouble code is now cleared from memory. Next highest priority diagnostic trouble code stored (if one exists) will begin flashing.

The codes and clearing proceedure above are to be used as a guide, NO claims are implied as to the correctness or accuracy of either.

How to repair the p1646


Looks like Lambda sensor fault,

Fault Code:- P1646 Indicates a Power-train fault


The fault is generally due to a problem in the Computer & Output Circuit area


Fault Description: ECM HO2 Sensor control malfunction -bank 1 upstream (1/1)

Action of ECM:- ECM Default:- HO1S 1/1 control circuit inhibited


After clearing the DTC, complete the Drive vehicle for 10 minutes
Check for a reoccurrence of fault DTC.


Possible Fault:- HO2 Sensor 1/1 heater failure HO2 Sensor 1/1 sensing circuit: short circuit to ground, short circuit to high voltage, open circuit ECM Failure
