Vida gives CCM-00A1 blower sig missing, CEM-1A53 DDM signal missing CEM-1A53 PDM signal missing. Hard to believe all 3 modules went bad at the same instant (when towed for 10 mins). All were working correctly immed before tow. Also why driver seat and ambient air temp non functional (no codes for those)? Tow was on flat bed, driver hooked cable under passenger side of engine only.

If you havent checked for any blown fuses this needs done to see if any fuses need replaced.If this is checked and found to be o.k. I would check in the area where the tow truck was pulling or hooked up to your model for any damaged wiring or connections as this can cause this issue here.If these are or were checked and found to be o.k. let me know so we can continue.

I should have mentioned that I'd checked the usual fuses under hood and side of dash. Fuses good but no 12v at fuse sockets.. So, after checking the wiring diagram, found a listing for the "cargo area" fuse panel next to battery,
location 11E in fuse list. part num for this fuse panel is(###) ###-####
Now this is NOT the fuse panel in the side panel of the cargo area, its under the floor next to the battery.
In fact you have to remove the battery to even see it. This fuse panel has mostly 50 amp fuses that are bolted
in place. Part # is(###) ###-####for the 50 amp fuse.
In this case I checked fuse 11E/6 which is 50amp and supplies power to fuse panel 11C/ fuses 1 through 6 (bingo - all the circuits not functioning).
It was open circuit but visually looked good. Replaced this fuse and all came back to life, problem thankfully solved.
Now I could not find anything on the web that even discusses problems with the 11E fuse panel (or checking these fuses).
so perhaps this info is useful.

That is great to hear it has been resolved.It is odd to see that fuse shorted out as well.Unless some how a voltage circuit shorted when the flat tires occurred or the tow had occurred but glad to see it is back on the road.

Let me know if you need anything else and feel free to rate my help here as this is how I receive credit for my time.Your 5 star rating is appreciated

Thanks Pete
