    Thank you Phil for the information. The only thing is I am wondering at what ohm does the injector have to be to be good? Do I have to check the injector plugged in or not plugged in to power source?



    Thanks

The quad driver is in the computer it drives the fuel injecters. you could have an injector problem if one injector shorts it will cause the code to show up you can ohm the injectors and find the problem e-mail me and let me know what you find Phil

93 buick regal 3.8 codes 26QMD &42EST PLUS POOR GAS MILAGE


Code 26 is for a problem with one of the quad drivers inside the engine computer, or the wiring harness, and code 42 is for a problem with the ignition module or the control.
You'll need a shop manual with the testing procedures for each code to proceed.

I have a 91 Buick Century limited 3.3L with a 3300 engine. I ran a diagnostic scan of which produced the two-digit codes 12, 26, and 27, and In attempting to look up these codes, I found a website on...


DTC 26 and 27 refers to a QDM (Quad Driver Module) fault.
The Quad Driver is a "safety valve" for the ECM controlled circuits, the quad driver controls up to 4 circuits.

There are multiple quad drivers in the ECM. The QDM shuts down a shorted circuit to prevent high current flow from damaging the ECM. So the DTC 26 or 27 will isolate the problem to 1 QDM. You will need a repair manual with electrical diagrams and DTC flow charts to determine which of the circuits controlled by that QDM are failing.

Usually DTC 26 refers to the Torque Converter Clutch solenoid and related circuit. Most likely you have a shorted TCC solenoid or the harness connected to it, The solenoid is internal in the transmission accessible from the side cover.

Also, keep in mind the single most cause for any code will be a power or ground problem. Clean all the battery cables, and any and all cables or wires that attach from the engine to the firewall.

Hope this helps; also keep in mind that your feedback is important and I will appreciate your time and consideration if you leave some testimonial comment about this answer.

Thank you for using FixYa, have a nice day.

1989 Buick intermitent engine problem Buick Regal 3.1 V6 8th vin. T in nostart condition no fire @plugs no fuel pressure when cranking . Replaced : crank sensor ECM Ignition module ignition switch...


You did'nt say if you have had the car (Scanned) to see if the engine control Module has stored any fault codes. You say it runs 20 miles or so before it quits. After cooling does it alawys start back up? What have you been doing to get it running again? The ECM can warm up and quit. It'll get an Troblem code about though. The no spark at the time sort of removes the Cat converter overheating and the ingtion Module ( (the coils are mounted to it). Something getting too hot is likly. Crank sensers and cam sensers both wil do this the crank senser is on the back of the block just above the oil pan. The cam sewnser is underneath the power steering pump and the connector going to it is on top of the front valve cover on the passenger side. Crank sensers will not code and still be bad. Computers if they come back on ever they will code most any problem and the code name is Quad driver failure.

670QDM CODE CAR IS RUNNIG FAST


Try the ignition control module... QDM stands for quad driver module which is apart of ignition control module. This module is located on top of the engine under the coil cover. Where the wires plug-in, this is the module.
