Please do not forget to click a positive rating as this is the only way I receive credit for my answer, thank you

hi, this code means that either the starter/generator has failed, or its control unit has failed.

the failed component will need to be replaced

it is best to use a dealership for this as they have the best equipment to fully diagnose - relying on a p code can sometimes leave ambiguity.

Please let me know if you have further questions. Please do not forget to click a positive rating as this is the only way I receive credit for my answer, thank you. Best wishes with your vehicle.

The light and code seem to be intermittent. The light comes on and will go off again. It may be weeks or Months before the light comes back on. Could it be a connection issue?

Please do not forget to click a positive rating

its possible but that isn't too common. the wiring and connections would all need to be checked to rule that out. Please do not forget to click a positive rating
