2006 Dodge Dakota 4x4 SLT Body Control Module location


I have a manual for a 2004 Dakota that is probably similar to the 2006 electrically. Dodge never called it a Body Control Module; earlier models did have the Central Timer Module (CTM) which functioned like Body Control Modules in other manufacturers vehicles.
In 2004, the CTM was replaced by the Integrated Power Module (IPM), which consists of the Front Control Module and Power Distribution Center, and is located next to the battery on the left inner fenderwell (the Front Control Module is underneath the Power Distribution Center, where you will find relays and fuses). There are several other modules which control various functions, and they communicate with each other through the Programmable Communication Interface (PCI) bus circuit, also called J1850.
The Front Control Module controls all exterior lights, except brake lights and turn signals, and the windshield wiper functions. Other modules (PCM, TCM, antilock brakes, heated seats, instrument cluster, power locks/power windows/power mirrors, etc) control other functions, but all communicate through the PCI bus.

The control module ID number list below provides a method for determining which module is not communicating. A module with a class 2 serial data circuit malfunction or which loses power during the current ignition cycle will have a Loss of Communication DTC set by other modules that depend on information from that failed module. The modules that can communicate will set a DTC indicating the module that cannot communicate. When no message is detected from a learned identification number for 5 seconds, a DTC U1??? where ??? is equal to the 3-digit identification number is set.

1997 olds gutless. Fuel gauge stuck past full. How to reset


Need to replace the instrument cluster or fuel gauge sending unit in the fuel tank or there is a BCM problem .BCM is a computer module if your not familiar with that . The BCM controls the instrument cluster indicators through the SPI serial data communication bus. Refer to Body Control Module System Check in Body Control System.
Serial Peripheral Interface (SPI) Data Line
The serial peripheral interface (SPI) is a three wire interface connecting the BCM to the instrument cluster. The SPI allows for the exchange of information. This interface is a synchronous serial data link where the BCM is the master and the instrument cluster is the slave. Because of the need for modules on the different serial data links to communicate with each other, the BCM acts as an interpreter, or master, for data communication between the class 2 and SPI data lines.
Driver Warning System
The BCM is responsible for the following functions:
  1. Interpreting all of the driver warnings sent by the control modules on the class 2 serial data line
  2. Sending the information to the instrument cluster in the form of a SPI serial data bus message
The following list of messages are sent by the BCM to the instrument cluster:
?€¢
Fuel gauge position


?€¢
Temperature gauge position


?€¢
Oil pressure


?€¢
Low engine coolant


?€¢
Check oil


?€¢
Volts


?€¢
ABS


?€¢
High beam


?€¢
Low fuel


?€¢
High temperature


?€¢
Washer fluid level low


?€¢
CRUISE


?€¢
BRAKE


?€¢
SERVICE VEHICLE SOON


?€¢
Door ajar


?€¢
Seat belt


?€¢
THEFT SYSTEM


?€¢
PRNDL


your best bet is to take your vehicle to a ASE certified repair shop an have it diagnosed .

While driving car will shut down along with all guages . after it sets it will start


This sounds more like a control module problem ! This mechanic ,did he hook up a scan tool an see if he could communicate with all the modules on the vehicle ? I have had vehicles that ran for 10 to 15 minutes then shut down an after it cooled down it started right up ! Ignition control module problem .That was back in the 80's . The amount of control modules on these vehicles today, an serial data bus communications , anything could cause your problem !
Class 2 Serial Data Link
The data link is configured as a ring with discrete lines entering and leaving each module. This allows communications to the modules on the ring if one of the two discrete circuits is open.
A total list of the control modules on the Class 2 Serial Data Line can include the following:
?€¢
Dash Integration Module (DIM)


?€¢
Driver Door Module (DDM)


?€¢
Electronic Brake Control Module (EBCM)


?€¢
Head Up Display (HUD) w/UV6


?€¢
HVAC Control Module w/C67


?€¢
Inflatable Restraint Sensing and Diagnostic Module (SDM)


?€¢
Instrument Panel Cluster (IPC)


?€¢
Instrument Panel Integration Module (IPM) w/CJ2


?€¢
Memory Seat Module (MSM) w/A45


?€¢
Powertrain Control Module (PCM)


?€¢

?€¢
Rear Integration Module (RIM)


?€¢
Remote Control Door Lock Receiver (RCDLR)


?€¢
Remote Playback Device - CD Changer w/U1S


?€¢
Theft Deterrent Control Module


?€¢
Vehicle Interface Unit (VIU) w/UE1

The following modules have only one communication line connection to the Class 2 data circuit:
?€¢
Driver Door Module (DDM)


?€¢
Head Up Display (HUD)


?€¢
Memory Seat Module (MSM) w/A45


?€¢

2003chevy express 3500 W/6.0 cable throttle. Trouble codes U1000,U1016,U1041. Instrument cluster drops off,(gauges go dead) EBS light stays on,security lights also. Van had a remote starter alarm system...


U codes pertain to the class 2 serial data network . A dead module ,a short on the network will bring down the network - no communications between modules = no start problems .
Modules connected to the class 2 serial data circuit monitor for serial data communications during normal vehicle operation. Operating information and commands are exchanged among the modules. When a module receives a message for a critical operating parameter, the module records the identification number of the module which sent the message for State of Health monitoring. A critical operating parameter is one which, when not received, requires that the module use a default value for that parameter. When a module does not associate an identification number with at least one critical parameter within 5 seconds of beginning serial data communication, DTC U1000 or U1255 DTC is set. When more than one critical parameter does not have an identification number associated with it, the DTC will only be reported once. The class 2 serial data line on this vehicle is a star configuration. The following modules communicate on the class 2 serial data line:
• The body control module (BCM)
• The electronic brake control module (EBCM)
• The inflatable restraint sensing and diagnostic module (SDM)
• The instrument panel cluster (IPC)
• The powertrain control module (PCM)
• The radio
• The remote control door lock receiver (RCDLR)
• The vehicle communication interface module (VCIM)

Look's like a communication problem with the PCM & EBCM !
Powertrain Control Module (PCM)
U1016
Electronic Brake Control Module (EBCM)
U1041
Diagnostic Aids
• An intermittent open between a module and a star connector may cause this DTC to set.
• A poor connection at a module or a star connector may cause this DTC to set.
• An intermittent open in a star connector may cause this DTC to set.
• An open voltage or ground circuit to a module may cause this DTC to set.
• An internal module malfunction may cause this DTC to set.
