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?

      So I have a 2011 Chevy equinox and about 3 weeks ago it pulled a p0420 code. I took it to the shop and had it tested, needed a new cat. So we replaced that and o2 sensors and cleared the code. Now the code is poping up again and we hooked it up and everything is running fine on the scanners. Although now when I go to take off I press on the gas pedal and the car doesn't accelerate. We've checked everything possible that would cause this and still haven't found a fix.... Any ideas?

      Hello all! I need to buy some parts for my 2006 f150. The last decent parts shop was closed last month. There are two choices i'm facing right now: get in the car and drive 70 miles to the closest shop (need to check is it still exists though) or order parts online. I run into one website and they might have what I need. However I'm not accustomed to buy goods online. Have some of you had experience with this online truck parts shop? They have some reviews here and there but I'm not a big believer in reviews. Or maybe you can drop a link to a website where you ordered parts. It'd be great
      thanks in advance
