General information

  • Malfunction indicator lamp (MIL) will illuminate or flash if certain faults are recorded.
  • ECM operates in backup mode if sensors fail, to enable vehicle to be driven to repair shop.

Accessing

  • Trouble codes can only be displayed by using a Scan Tool connected to the data link connector (DLC):
o G5/G6/G8 [1]
o GTO [2]
o Montana SV6/Solstice/Torrent [3]

Erasing

  • After the faults have been rectified, the manufacturer recommends that trouble codes are erased by using a Scan Tool connected to the data link connector (DLC).
