Hello there,

If you have 120 ohms across 6 and 14, one of the pair of resistors or wiring in one direction is open circuit.

I'll come back to you soon with some more info and a circuit diagram.

Can you leave your meter across 6 and 14, then disconnect X1 at the ECM.

If the 120 stays on the meter, the other direction is ok, and the fault is towards ECM. Vice Versa for if you lose the 120 ohms on your meter when you disconnect the ECM.

I hooked meter up last night and tried wiggle test with wires and if i unhooked the resistor at back of truck by the spare tire it stays the same

Hi again,

I'm glad you found that end, it shows on GM SI as after the Trailer Brake Control Module.

Can you see the wire colours at that point, should be TAN and TAN/WHITE.

Can you then measure the resistor you took off, hopefully open circuit.

If it reads 120 ohms, then place a short across the pins in place of the resistor.

Go back to 6 and 14. Technically it should be read a short now.

So either the resistor is open or or one wire from the ALDL 6,14 to the back of the vehicle is open circuit.

Resistor isolated from harness ohm out at 119.5 as fat as wire color not for sure but will place a short there and ohm between post 6 and 14 latter this afternoon how does one ohm the resistor in engine computer?
Chevy Mechanic: Gary, ASE Certified Technician replied 1 year ago

Ok, the rear resistor is fine.

Leave it off, and measure at 6 and 14.

If it reads open circuit, you were looking at the rear one only earlier from 6 and 14, meaning towards the front is open.

With the rear one off, if you are still 120 at 6 and 14, the front is fine.

The ECM resistor is non-serviceable.

Posted by JustAnswer at customer's request) Hello. I would like to request the following Expert Service(s) from you: Live Phone Call. Let me know if you need more information, or send me the service offer(s) so we can proceed.
Chevy Mechanic: Gary, ASE Certified Technician replied 1 year ago

Hi there,

I can't do phone call request, sorry.

But you proved all forward of the ALDL to the ECM is fine.

Your rear resistor is also fine.

The pair going to the back has an open on one wire of the the pair.

You can prove this with your meter, one leg of the meter in 6 the other leg to either wire at the back should see Zero ohms on one wire.

Same for 14, zero ohms on the other wire.

Can you now measure these two wires?
