Need some code help.

hi everyone

First off i love this forum! Been lurkin, checkin things out, whatnot.

I need a little help. My wife and I share the car (2000 STS) and she is tellin me the traction control goes off for no reason. Always when she is turning.

I was told my problem was sharing LOL I'm starting to agree with that LOL

Anyways she says the car tells her its "enabled" or "service traction". At first i thought she was hitting the button some how. Bad move :blink: that was callin her stupid i guess LOL :ph34r:

Well when i drive it nothing like that happens.

Would any of these codes help me? Could someone help me figure out what they mean?

Antilock Brake System

ABS C1246 current - Brake Lining Wear Circuit Open

ABS C1287 history - Steering Sensor Rate Malfunction

Dash Integration Module

DIM B1983 history - Device Power Circuit Low

DIM U1016 history - ???

Inflatable Restraint Sensing and Diagnostic Module

SDM B1001 history - Option Configuration Error

Tilt and Telescopic Steering Wheel Module

TTM U1016 history - ???

U1016 - Loss of Class 2 Communication with VCM

U1016 - Loss of Communications with PCM

Thanks in advance.

The C1246 means one or more of your brake pad sensors is worn through enough to open the wire that is imbedded in the sensor (which indicates one or more brake pads need to be replaced) OR one or more of your brake pad sensors is not properly connected to the chassis wiring.

The C1287 as history could be related to any previous Stabilitrac messages and codes. Since it is not a current DTC, it is something to make a note of for possible future Stabilitrac problems.

The B1983 by itself in history is not a concern. Has the battery been completely discharged or disconnected recently?

I wouldn't worry about the U1016 codes too much. I get those from time to time (history). I just clear them - then, sooner or later, they come back. In my case, at least, they don't cause any problems.

Have you unhooked the battery lately?

Yes. I replaced the battery couple weeks ago.

Could be a loose or corroded battery connection.

Yup. It was lookin bad.

Have you checked the brake linings?

Yes. I replaced the front pads last fall without the sensors.

Now i know this will sound crazy but are there different codes for "driver 2"? :huh:

And... What is the ID? :blink:

Too bad you can't go back and look up the last messages that pop up on the car... or can you?

Thanks for helpin out :D

You could jumper the two pins on the chassis side of the sensor connector to get rid of this code. My '98 Service Manual is silent about this code so I have no idea what other actions or messages might be triggered.
But these two...

TTM U1016 history....

The C1287 should not display any messages as a history code.

Both the steering wheel sensor and the TTM (Tilt/Telescoping Module) connectors are in the same area on the steering column. I would try cycling the connectors a few times to eliminate any oxidation or corrosion on the pins.

hmm... that night explain why she gets the problem and not me. hmm would the position of the steering wheel cause this?

later,
