Message on 96 Caddilac Deville Transmission Control Module

I have a 96' Caddilac Deville and I am wondering when the message displays Transmission Control Module, if it could be something leading up to the TCM... I want to go through the process before I spend 1500.00 or more to have this fixed. Has anyone else had this problem. Does Not Backfire Switches Gears Sometimes? Doesn't seem to have any other problems.

Please read the owners manual on this first then read on here.
Whenever this warning light or any other stays on in the dash it is indicating that the systems control module (or the system sensor in the case of lights like low oil pressure, door open indicators etc.) has detected a fault, it then disables the system (this applies to ABS,TCS, TCM, SRS and BCM faults and others) as long as the light is on. You must now have the dealer hook up a special electronic diagnostic tool and "scan" the system for the fault code that is stored for the problem(s)

SOURCE: transmission doesnt shift abs & brake light on speedometer doesnt work

I had the same problem with ABS light and speedometer, I was told that it is the transmission control module. It has not yet stopped shifting but I have had times where it just wont stay running. It will start and then stall. Hope this helps.

check the fluid and all the wiring plugs going to the transmission.it is not uncommon for oil to drip onto a plug and cause bad readings,or vacuum lines that are cracked.

Controls how the tranny shifts. Usually hard to change on newer vehicles because it is located inside the tranny. Be more specific.

I have a 2001 Cadillac deville and was wondering if i have another car just like it, is it possible i change out the bcm and our other modules needed.


The body control system consists of the following 3 modules:
• The Dash Integration Module (DIM)
• The Instrument Panel Module (IPM)
• The Rear Integration Module (RIM)
Each of the 3 body control modules integrate a number of functional systems under the control of a single module. Each module is connected to the Class 2 serial data circuit, many of the control functions are implemented by Class 2 messages.

Plus they would need to be programmed . Dealer only .

My 2003 Cadillac deville system electric is on now my brake light don't work or my window won't let up


SERVICE ELECTRICAL SYS - 106
The IPC illuminates the SERVICE ELECTRICAL SYS -- 106 message in the DIC when one of the following conditions exist:
?€¢
The dash integration module (DIM) detects a malfunction that is related to the ignition switch.


The IPC receives a class 2 message requesting illumination from the DIM.


?€¢
There is a powertrain related code present.


The IPC receives a class 2 message requesting illumination from the PCM. Dash Integration Module (DIM)
The various DIM input and output circuits are described in the corresponding functional areas as indicated on the DIM electrical schematics.
The DIM functions include the following:
?€¢
Class 2 communication requiring DIM interaction.


?€¢
Control of exterior lamps.


?€¢
Control of front fog lights.


?€¢
Control of the headlights.


?€¢
Headlamps on with wiper input.


?€¢
Hood ajar switch input w/export.


?€¢
Horn relay control.


?€¢
Interior lamps incandescent dimming.


?€¢
Low side temperature for HVAC compressor.


?€¢
Power moding control over Class 2 serial data circuit.


?€¢
Reverse lockout solenoid control.


?€¢
Steering wheel controls input.


?€¢
Storage of the clock settings and, sending a message out on the class 2 serial data circuit in response to requests from other modules.


On vehicles that have several control modules connected by serial data circuits, one module is the power mode master (PMM). On this vehicle the PMM is the DIM. The PMM receives 4 signals from the ignition switch.
To determine the correct power mode the PMM uses the following circuits:
?€¢
Accessory voltage


?€¢
Ignition 1 voltage


?€¢
Ignition 3 voltage


?€¢
Off/Run/Crank voltage

If you have an engine support to hold the engine in place while the transmission is removed, it is easier to just remove the transmission.

2003 Chevy Avalanche won't start (incorrect gear indicator)


PRNDL Display
The instrument panel cluster (IPC) displays the selected gear position as determined by the powertrain control module (PCM). The IPC receives a class 2 message from the PCM indicating the gear position. The PRNDL display blanks if:
• The PCM detects a malfunction in the transmission range switch circuit.
• The IPC receives a class 2 message indicating the park position and the column park switch indicates a position other than park, open input.
• The IPC detects a loss of class 2 communications with the PCM.

Could be the transmission range sensor . Testing would need to be done , hooking up a scan tool ! Doing electrical testing etc...

I NEED TO KNOW WHERE THE TRACTION CONTROL SENSOR IS ON A 96 CADDILAC SEDAN DEVILLE


each wheel has it's own sensor and it's an integral part of the wheel hub. if you have a problem, the computer will tell you which wheel is the problem and you will have to change that hub. not a hard fix, but the fronts take more time bcuz of the drive axle.
