2011 Chevy Equinox Random Traction Control and Check Engine Light


Recommended Posts

I'm having an issue I can't seem to figure out. I have a scanner and was able to pull some codes but here's what' happening. 

Randomly, the car will loose power, traction control light and check engine light come on. Here''s what comes up:

 

U0100-71 Lost communication with transmission control module-invalid data (brake control module)

U0100-71 Lost communication with transmission control module-invalid data (brake control module)

P0300-00 Engine misfire detected (ECM)

P124B-00 Cylinder 4 injector high control circuit shorted to control circuit

Cleared the codes and the car ran normal for a day or so, then same thing happened and same codes. Took the plastic off the engine and inspected wiring, wiggled wires to see if I can get it to happen again thinking maybe there's a break somewhere with the loss of communication. But nothing.

Ran it again fine, but then started to misfire and lights came on. Codes this time were only:

U0100-71 Lost communication with transmission control module-invalid data (brake control module)

U0100-71 Lost communication with transmission control module-invalid data (brake control module)

P0300-00 Engine misfire detected (ECM)

 

I also recall a few months ago, a couple of times my radio would turn off and on by itself like it lost power for a second. This made me think I had some sort of communication or loose power somewhere. I did install a new alternator and battery like 6 months ago so I checked all connections and they are fine. It's random.

What could it be?

  • Bad injector but intermittent? Don't they usually just go bad?
  • Shorted wiring causing intermittent issue or loss of communication back to control module?
  • Brake control module issue?
  • ECM issue?

      Now powered by a higher-capacity rechargeable battery, the 
      link hidden, please login to view link hidden, please login to view portable LED work light provides up to seven hours of continuous use on one charge. The new LITESTIX LS36SMDX model is designed to train task lighting wherever it’s needed without cords getting in the way. The light boosts visibility where general lighting isn’t strong enough, such as inside engine compartments, vehicle interiors, and underneath lifts, as well as when work is under way at night.  Upgrading the rechargeable lithium battery from 1800 mAH (milliampere-hour) to 2600 mAh, means the latest LITESTIX model can deliver another full hour of performance. The work light boasts 36 LED bulbs that together generate 1,200 lumens of bright white light. Each lamp also features high and low brightness settings. 
      Thanks to its high-efficiency LEDs, LITESTIX uses less energy and stays cool, making it easy to move around a vehicle without worrying about getting burnt. Designed for a long life of heavy-duty use, each LITESTIX is encased in an impact-resistant polycarbonate housing. Other key features are an innovative telescoping holder and magnetic swivel mounts that let you put it where you need it.
      LITESTIX also solves the century-old problem of how to sit a shop light snugly on a vehicle’s hood, roof, or other points on the body. Placement on the vehicle is often necessary to get the best visibility, but traditional lamps roll off. To accomplish this feat, LITESTIX has dual 90-degree swiveling handles equipped with magnetic ends that enable mounting the light tube on any flat or off-angle metallic surface. 
      The lamp’s all-steel telescoping cradle frame can extend from 49.5˝ to 79.75˝ in length and can secure to the underside of a vehicle hood, for example, with the help of grabbing hooks attached at both ends of the frame. When used without the cradle frame, LITESTIX can be hung using recessed hooks inside the handles that twist out as needed.
