Question about Chevrolet Blazer

1 Answer

I took my 2004 Blazer to get a diagnostic check. Two codes came uo U1064 and U1096. What are some solutions to fix this problem? The instrument panel lights stay on after the car has been started and will go off if I drive it for awhile. Battery is being drained, but alternator is good.

U1064 - Loss of Communications with DIM (Dash Integration Module)
Here is some TSB

Refer to Data Link Connector (DLC) Schematics

Circuit Description
The class 2 serial data line communicates information between modules. Each module connected to the serial data line is assigned a recognition code, or address. This code is used in order to identify which modules are communicating. Modules communicate with each other by periodically sending state of health (SOH) messages. When the ignition switch is in RUN, each module communicating on the serial data line sends a SOH message every 2 seconds. This ensures that the system is operating properly. When the dash integration module (DIM) stops communicating on the class 2 serial data line, the SOH that is normally sent on the serial data line every 2 seconds disappears. The module, which expects to receive that message, detects the absence of the message. The module in turn sets DTC U1064 associated with the loss of SOH of the DIM.

Conditions for Setting the DTC
The module does not receive a state of health (SOH) message back from the DIM. The module retries the request 3 times, and then sets DTC U1064.

This DTC only sets if U1300 or U1301 is not current.
Action Taken When the DTC Sets
DTC U1064 is stored in the module.

The module uses the default values for the initialization data. This DTC does not cause driver warning message to appear.

Conditions for Clearing the DTC
This DTC clears (status changes from current to history) under any of the following conditions:
The module detects a state of health message from the DIM.
At each ignition cycle.
A history DTC clears after 50 consecutive ignition cycles if the conditions for setting the DTC are no longer present.
Current and history DTCs may be cleared using a scan tool.

Diagnostic Aids
DTC U1064 does not normally represent a failure within the module.
When loss of class 2 serial data communication DTCs (DTCs with the letter U as the prefix) are stored as history DTCs, know all possible serial data DTCs set in each module before diagnosing the serial data line.

If U1064 is stored in the module memory, inspect for the same DTC stored in other modules capable of storing this DTC.
If the DTC is a history DTC, the problem may be intermittent.

Test Description: The numbers below refer to the step numbers on the diagnostic table:

U1064 is the result of loss of communication with the dash integration module (DIM). Note that other modules on the class 2 serial data line may also set U1064 if the DIM is not communicating with the serial data line.

Clear all DTCs after the repair procedure is complete.
Step
Action
Value(s)
Yes
No

1
Did you perform the Data Link Communications Diagnostic System Check?
--
Go to Step 2
Go to Diagnostic System Check - Data Link Communications

2
Use a scan tool in order to attempt the establish communication with the dash integration module (DIM).

Does the scan tool communicate with the DIM?
--
Go to Step 3
Go to Diagnostic System Check - Body Control System in Body Control System.

3
Inspect and repair the class 2 serial data line CKT 1807 (PPL) for intermittent connections. Refer to Intermittents and Poor Connections Diagnosis in Wiring Systems.

Is the repair complete?
--
Go to Step 4
--

4
Turn off the ignition switch.
Reconnect or install any connectors or components that were disconnected or removed.
Turn on the ignition switch.
Clear any DTCs.
Is the repair complete?



U1096 - Loss of Communications with IPC

The computers on the Chevy require a certain voltage to operate and if the voltage drops below a preset limit then it will tripper a loss of communication with the other modules, this drop in voltage happens when the car is started and the draw on the starter uses a large amount of amperage. I suggest to check power/ground in the instrument cluster and if good do a resistance test on Data wire.

If your car is not experincing any messages like "service vehicle soon" and no warning lights are illuminating then disregard these codes.


Hope helps.

All warning lights come on in cluster and all gauges quit on a 2004 trail blazer


Most people are unaware that instrument clusters on vehicles from the 1980'S till now have a microprcessor inside an the gauges are controlled from information supplied from the PCM - engine computer . Hooking up a factory scan tool to see if that information is getting to the instrument cluster is the first step in diagnosing problems like this . Could have DTC'S - diagnostic trouble codes stored . Also with the scan tool hooked up checking gauge control would be possible . GM had problems with bad step motors from 03 to 06 . These step motors move the gauge's. How to repair GM Instrument Cluster Speedometer Gauge Stepper

Service engine soon light is staying on and computer is not showing a code


How does the vehicle run ?
Malfunction Indicator Lamp (MIL) Always On
Circuit Description
Ignition voltage is supplied to the malfunction indicator lamp (MIL). The powertrain control module (PCM) turns the MIL ON by grounding the MIL control circuit.
MIL Operation
The MIL is located on the instrument panel (IPC).
MIL Function ?€¢
The MIL informs the driver that a malfunction has occurred and the vehicle should be taken in for service as soon as possible.


?€¢
The MIL illuminates during a bulb test and a system test.


?€¢
A DTC will be stored if a MIL is requested by the diagnostic.


You could have a bad instrument cluster ! Here is part of diagnostic flow chart for your vehicle !

Did you perform the Diagnostic System Check-Engine Controls?
Go to Step 2
Go to Diagnostic System Check - Engine Controls

2

  1. Turn OFF the ignition.
  2. Disconnect the PCM.
  3. Turn ON the ignition, with the engine OFF.
  4. Observe the MIL.
Is the MIL illuminated?
Go to Step 3
Go to Step 5

3

  1. Remove the instrument panel cluster (IPC). Refer to Instrument Cluster Replacement in Instrument Panel, Gages, and Console.
  2. Test the MIL control circuit for a short to ground. Refer to Circuit Testing and Wiring Repairs in Wiring Systems.

Why do I have all these codes on in my 04 Pontiac grand prix gt. U1000,u1300,u1016,u1064,u1096


There is a Pontiac Technical Service Bulletin addressing your exact issue, right down the the same exact codes you are getting. Here is the information I gathered and I will place a link to the page where I found it. You will need to scroll down the list of TSBs to find your specific one. Apparently this is a problem for the Grand Prix.

Here is the basic data:

TSB Number: 0308116001 NHTSA Number: 10002880 TSB Date: February 1, 2004 Date Added to File: September 30, 2003 Failing Component: Electrical System Summary: Diagnostic trouble code (DTC) U1000, U1016, U1064, U1096 or U1305 set in error. This bulletin replaces previous bulletin dated 06/01/2003.
