Yes I am
Chevy Mechanic: GM Tech (Cam), Chevy Technician replied 2 years ago
OK, found a bulletin about that combination of codes and it refers to issues with the belt. While I get that bulletin for you, can you tell me if you have an aftermarket belt on the engine or anything added to the system like a PTO or something?

Customer reply replied 2 years ago
It has two alternators and just a regular Belt from the parts store
Customer reply replied 2 years ago
It doesn't have any other after market parts
Chevy Mechanic: GM Tech (Cam), Chevy Technician replied 2 years ago
OK, that may be it. If you look in the bulletin, aftermarket belts, meaning belts sourced from non GM dealers can generate the static electricity and cause this. I suggest before we do anything else that you follow the steps of the bulletin closely and see if that resolves your issue. If not then we may be looking at a transmission module issue, but with the higher charging current and such, I have a good feeling this will correct the issue.

OK I preformed the steps in the bulletin an it did nothin truck is still the same but I got another code that came up p0700 ?
Chevy Mechanic: GM Tech (Cam), Chevy Technician replied 2 years ago
P0700 is just a code that the Transmission module is requesting the check engine light. You put a GM belt in and cleared the codes as well?

OK so basically we are down to this, check the wiring to the TCM, make sure it gets power with the key on. If so, and if the wiring, connector, grounds are good, it means your transmission module is bad. Its not a plug and play unit, rather it needs to be programmed and setup, then a learn done on your transmission to the module for the clutch fill capacities, which is done also with the scanner after the programming. Here is the bit from the manual. Circuit/System VerificationEngine running, accessories OFF, measure and record the battery voltage at the battery terminals. The reading should be between 12.6 and 15 V. If not the expected value, refer to Battery Charging. Observe the scan tool TCM ignition voltage parameter. The reading should be between 12.6 and 15 V. Operate the vehicle within the Conditions for Running the DTC to verify the DTC does not reset. You may also operate the vehicle within the conditions that you observed from the Freeze Frame/Failure Records data. Circuit/System TestingNote: You must perform the Circuit/System Verification first. Ignition OFF, and all vehicle systems OFF. It may take up to 2 minutes for all vehicle systems to power down. Disconnect the harness connector at the TCM. Test for less than 3 ohms between ground circuit terminal 9 and battery ground and between ground circuit terminal 69 and battery ground. If greater than the specified range, repair the affected ground circuit. Verify that a test lamp illuminates between the battery B+ circuits terminal 10 and ground and terminal 70 and ground. If the test lamp does not illuminate, repair the affected B+ circuit. If circuits test normal, replace the TCM.

The ohm meter falls down to 0.2 ohms on are ground circuits an b+ circuits to ground light the test light
Chevy Mechanic: GM Tech (Cam), Chevy Technician replied 2 years ago
OK, then its looking like a module issue. One last thing to try, take a small wire, attach it to the heat sink pins and ground it. See if that changes anything.
Ask Your Own Chevy Question
Customer reply replied 2 years ago
Grounded heat sink pin on tcm an still no change looks like the tcm
Chevy Mechanic: GM Tech (Cam), Chevy Technician replied 2 years ago
I agree. but I will mention this one more time just because its that important, make sure there are no wiring issue to the TCM, No corrosion in the connector and the pin fits are all good otherwise we are going to change this TCM for no reason. That being said, I have seen and replaced a handful of TCM's now so they are somewhat common.
