I have a 2001 aurora and code p1860 p1860 came up what is this and how much to fix


P1860 All GM - TCC (transmission Torque Converter Clutch) PWM Solenoid Circuit Electrical.
P1860 Description The Torque Converter Clutch Pulse Width Modulation (TCC PWM) solenoid valve controls the fluid acting on the converter clutch valve. The converter clutch valve controls the TCC application and release. The solenoid attaches to the control valve body within the transmission. The solenoid receives ignition voltage through circuit 239. The Powertrain Control Module (PCM) controls the solenoid by providing a ground path on circuit 418. Current flows through the solenoid coil according to the duty cycle (percentage of ON and OFF time). The TCC PWM solenoid valve provides a smooth engagement of the torque converter clutch by operating during a duty cycle percent of ON time.
When is the code detected? When the PCM detects a continuous open, short to ground or short to power in the TCC PWM solenoid valve circuit, then DTC P1860 sets. DTC P1860 is a type B DTC.

Possible causes - Faulty Torque Converter Clutch Pulse Width Modulation (TCC PWM) Solenoid
- Torque Converter Clutch Pulse Width Modulation (TCC PWM) Solenoid harness is open or shorted
- Torque Converter Clutch Pulse Width Modulation (TCC PWM) Solenoid circuit poor electrical connection. Unless you have a factory manual and very good auto repair skills this is best left to an expert. It is a messy dirty job that requires removing the parts inside the transmission for testing..

Can you tell me the location of code reader 1991 capri ?


1991 is pre-OBD2. code readers will not work.
sorry.
however, all is not lost. Many cars have an alternate way of reading codes from the computer.
Toyota has a block under the hood and you short couple wires together and count engine light flashes
Chrysler you can turn the ignition key on and off a few times and count engine light flashes
in your case for GMs from 1982 to 1995
1: find the 12 pin connector under the dash and short the upper two rightmost terminals.
with the ignition "ON" and engine not running. The system will enter the diagnostic mode. In this mode, the computer will display a Code 12, three consecutive times, by flashing the "CHECK ENGINE", "SERVICE ENGINE SOON" or "MALFUNCTION INDICATOR LAMP" or light. A Code 12 consists of one flash, a short pause, then two flashes in rapid succession.
2:. After Code 12 is displayed, any stored trouble codes will be displayed by flashing the "CHECK ENGINE", "SERVICE ENGINE SOON" or "MALFUNCTION INDICATOR LAMP" light. All codes are displayed 3 times each then a code 12 will repeat. In the diagnostic mode, the computer will also energize all computer controlled relays and solenoids.

Codes trouble olds engine troublecodes


quad driver A fault
ECM module have input and ouput, quad driver are there to activate a solenoid or relay
quad driver A drive a few of those output
example quad driver A control canister purge solenoid and the solenoid is defect . the quad driver will kick off until you change the solenoid
there is two kind of driver 1984 to .......one will reset if trouble is repair
the other one is the ecm module itself have to be change after is repair .....(quad driver act has a driver or big fuse)

Quad driver module computer circuit #2 fault ?


I will start by pinout check current + to ECM and - ground there is many .
A Quad driver work like a big fuse d?pends some are resettable and other not reset(ECM defect) if it is so then you have to check all solenoid not short to ground before replacing ECM it will burn without checking the solenoid
hope it help

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.

I have a 1995 buick la sabra i got an error code po676 quad driver module failure i replaced the E C M and i am still getting the same code


The quad driver in the ecm operates the higher amp draw for certain relays and solenoids one of them is faulty or there is a short to ground in the wiring.You will have to locate a wiring diag. and figure out which quad driver is the bad one and see what it controls.There should be at least 2 quad drivers maybe more and they would be numbered in the diag.

Code 26 what does it mean


DTC 26 refers to a 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.

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.

I will assume this is a 3800 V6 w/ 4T440 / 440 T4 transmission with the digital (3 solenoid valves) EGR valve.
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. Many problems can be resolved by just doing this. Many times a computer will give false codes when it doesn't get the correct amount of voltage, or a good ground is not established between the battery, engine, and the body of the vehicle.
Glad to help out, Good Luck!!!

Fault codes


DTC P1860 is set if PCM detects a continuous open or short to ground in the TCC PWM solenoid circuit.

If your inclinded to attempt to fix this yourself, I have some trouble shooting proceedures that you can use. They are very involved, and could require the trans oil pan to be removed to get access to the solenoid.

If your not up to that, take it in to get it fixed.

TCC PMW solenoid is used to control fluid flow acting on the converter clutch valve.
The Solenoid controls TCC apply and release.
The Solenoid is attached to the transmission valve body. To get to it you have to remove the tranmission oil pan. Changing it should be no problem.
But do you need to replace it? To determine that you have to figure out if it is the wiring that goes to the solenoid or if the solenoid itself is shot.


The PCM uses the TCC/PWM solenoid to control when the torque converter clutch applies and how soft or harsh the TCC apply feels to the customer. The TCC/PWM also controls the release feel of the torque converter clutch. "


Ignition voltage is supplied directly to the solenoid through a fused circuit. The Powertrain control module commands solenoid on or off by applying or removing the ground.
