GMC 2015 Duramax LML V8...
GMC 2015 Duramax LML V8 6.6L - DIC message SERVICE EXHAUST FLUID SYSTEM - SEE OWNERS MANUAL NOW -TRANSITIONING TO 7 KM/H(4 MPH) MAX SPEED displays. A flashing warning light and a chime also come on. Vehicle speed reduced to 4 MPH MAX SPEED. Truck won't move pass 10 Mph. I've added approx. 3.5 gallons of DEF and let the car ran for over 1 hour. DEF warning indicator still showing on DIC. My understanding is that it's supposed to reset itself. Fyi - the closet GMC service center is over*****from us.Further, using a Tech2 tool we've initiated the Diesel Regen. Diesel Regen seems to be running as normal based on the engine revving sounds and smoke coming out the tail pipe until 10 minutes passed then Diesel Regen and engine operation abruptly returned to normal state. Upon examining the Tech2 there is an error that says Diesel Particulate Filter Temperature Out of Range (Press [Exit to continue]. Issue still persists. Any thoughts what the solution could be?

Thanks for the updates but the issue with the truck not switching off was resolved by replacing the ignition relay with a new one. We now have new codes that could possibly address the underlying issue. They are P0103 - Mass or volume air flow circuit high input. Module: Fuel and air metering.And P0098 - Intake air temperature sensor 2 circuit high input. Module: fuel and air metering and auxiliary emission controls.We are in the process of checking the air filter and sensors. Do you have any advice on how to monitor the intake air flow with the Tech2 and at what range we should look for to determine if the sensors are good or bad?

let me look up these codes and see

Circuit/System Description

The intake air temperature (IAT) sensor 2 is a variable resistor that measures the temperature of the air in the mass air flow (MAF) sensor assembly. The IAT 2 is integrated into the mass air flow sensor assembly. It is the second air temperature sensor in the air stream. The engine control module (ECM) supplies 5 V to the signal circuit, and a ground for the low reference circuit. The ECM monitors the IAT sensor 2 signal for an excessively high or low voltage.

Conditions for Running the DTC

P0097 or P0098

  • The engine is running for longer than 10 s.
  • The DTCs run continuously when the above condition is met.

Conditions for Setting the DTC

P0097

The IAT Sensor 2 parameter is warmer than 148°C (299°F) for greater than 3 s. This is equal to or less than 0.08 V on the IAT signal circuit as measured by the ECM.

Note: The scan tool display range is between −40 and +150°C (−40 and +302°F).

P0098

The IAT Sensor 2 parameter is colder than −52°C (−61°F) for greater than 3 s. This is equal to greater than 4.9 V on the IAT signal circuit as measured by the ECM.

Action Taken When the DTC Sets

  • DTCs P0097 and P0098 are Type B DTCs.
  • The ECM commands reduced engine power.
  • The driver information center (DIC) or indicator may display reduced engine power.

Conditions for Clearing the DTC

DTCs P0097 and P0098 are Type B DTCs.

Diagnostic Aids

  • The (8 Pin) Humidity Sensor is placed in the air stream ahead of the (5 Pin) Mass Air Flow/Intake Air Temperature (IAT sensor 2). They are both mounted to the air cleaner cover.
  • With the ignition ON and the engine OFF, if the engine is cold, a properly functioning IAT sensor 2 will gradually increase the scan tool IAT Sensor 2 parameter. This is due to the heat that is generated by the MAF sensor heating elements.

    Circuit/System Description

    The mass air flow (MAF) sensor is integrated with the intake air temperature (IAT) sensor 2. The MAF sensor is an air flow meter that measures the amount of air entering the engine. The engine control module (ECM) uses the MAF sensor signal to provide the correct fuel delivery for all engine speeds and loads. A small quantity of air entering the engine indicates a deceleration or idle condition. A large quantity of air entering the engine indicates an acceleration or high load condition.

    The ECM monitors the exhaust gas recirculation (EGR) flow when the EGR valve is commanded ON. The ECM compares the desired MAF to the actual MAF, if the difference is less than or greater than a calibrated threshold level the amount of detected EGR flow is out of range and an EGR DTC will set.

    The ECM applies 5 V to the MAF sensor on the MAF sensor signal circuit. The sensor uses the voltage to produce a frequency based on the inlet airflow through the sensor bore. The frequency varies in a range of approximately 2,300 Hz at idle to near 9,000 Hz at maximum engine load, depending on engine coolant temperature (ECT).

    When the ECT reaches 60°C (140°F) the ECM can command the exhaust gas recirculation (EGR) valve ON, and a lower frequency and g/s value will be indicated on the scan tool.

    Conditions for Running the DTC

    P0102

    • DTCs P0335 or P0336 are not set.
    • The engine is running for longer than 10 s.
    • This DTC runs continuously when the enabling conditions are met.

    P0103

    • DTCs P0335 or P0336 are not set.
    • The ignition is ON.
    • This DTC runs continuously when the enabling conditions are met.

    Conditions for Setting the DTC

    P0102

    The ECM detects that the MAF sensor is less than 1.08 g/s for greater than 3 s.

    P0103

    The ignition is ON, and the ECM detects a fault on the MAF sensor circuits.

    OR

    The engine is running, and the ECM detects that the MAF sensor signal is greater than 625 g/s, for greater than 3 s.

    Action Taken When the DTC Sets

    • DTCs P0102 and P0103 are Type A DTCs.
    • The ECM commands reduced engine power.
    • The driver information center (DIC) or indicator may display reduced engine power.
    • Diesel particulate filter (DPF) regeneration is inhibited.

    Conditions for Clearing the DTC

    DTCs P0102 and P0103 are Type A DTCs.

    Diagnostic Aids

    • A wide open throttle (WOT) acceleration from a stop should cause the MAF Sensor parameter on the scan tool to increase rapidly. This increase should be from 6–8 g/s at idle to greater than 380 g/s at the time of the 1-2 shift.
    • For an intermittent problem, visually and physically inspect the EGR valve for a possible binding or sticking in the open position.
    • Verify that any electrical aftermarket devices are properly connected and grounded. Refer to Checking Aftermarket Accessories .
    • A faulty EGR valve that does not close or open fully, may set this DTC.

      We believe the issue can be resolved by either deleting the DPF or EGR. Do you know of an easy way to accomplish this with a scan tool or cheap kit? Btw, the truck is located in SE Asia so there is no over-reaching government regulation to prevent us from doing so.Also, I was told that this all started because the owner failed to refill the DEF when it was low. He waited until it drained (Ignorant). This then disabled the truck from going pass 4 MPH. Can a simple DPF scan reset addressed this? I guess we will find out in a few days when the scan tool we ordered arrive. If you have any further suggestions, please let me know. Thanks

      clear all codes with tech 2...Is engine still running poorly or did it return to normal state as you said earlier. clear all codes record them on paper...reset any thing that needs to be reset...drive vehicle and see if any codes return...if codes return then run the tests on those codes in the information I previously replied with your answer...by the way if you could rate me with a positive rating...that would be good as that is important...if you still need more information please let me know...the codes you had were intake air temp codes and the tests are included at the top of page...do you need help on how to diagnose codes? If you have specific questions on testing please ask the question and I will answer that as well....if you need lots of detail I would suggest a phone call...you can request one and we can talk on the phone

      It's evening here. I will need to continue with the diagnosing tomorrow. Hopefully, my new scanner will arrive tomorrow. Yes, I may need to have you assist me in diagnosing codes. Phone assistance with your will likely be my next option. I will keep you posted as to when will work best both of us.

      you also stated you had a mass air flow sensor code...it is possible that this code along with intake air temp were set when the vehicle was running poorly so I would erase and rive the vehicle if codes return perform the tests I included if codes do not return then problem is intermittent or was a result of vehicle running out of fluid...which is why all this started in the first place. You could have more than vehicle running out of fluid and a bad relay....but erase codes and road test...make sense? any questions? thank you if not please give me a positive rating if you need help I will help you until problem or problems are resolved....oftentimes when a situation gets involved I usually request a phone call as it tend to clarify matters and speeds up process reduce misunderstandings etc....ok?

      Gotcha. I will reset codes tomorrow. However, the truck does not go pass 4 mph so driving it isn't an option. You're right about miscommunication and a phone conversation is better. Perhaps, tomorrow Wednesday around 7-8 pm your time I can call you.

      yes 7 or 8 is fine
