Does the DIC indicate the door is ajar?

Scan tool data will show a door ajar switch - I called it door latch switch

Driver Door Ajar Switch: The scan tool displays the state of the driver door. Active is open and inactive is closed.

Driver Door Handle: The scan toll displays the current state of the door handle switch. When the driver door handle is lifted the scan tool will display active and at rest will display inactive.

Driver Door Latch Lock Switch: The scan tool will display Yes if the driver door is locked and No if it is unlocked.

How to check wiring
Unplug three wire connector from latch.
With key on use a voltmeter and measure the voltages as follows

Place black meter lead in cavity for black wire
Place red lead in cavity with Gry/blk wire (door ajar signal wire) and record voltage
Move red voltmeter lead to LGrn/blk wire (door handle switch signal wire) record voltage
Both measurements should be similar and I believe these are 5 volt reference circuits. (slight possibility they are both higher)
If they are similar - problem in latch
If Gry/blk wire 0 (or real low) that wire is open and must be traced down

I do not know why - but GM shows the two different switches on two different diagrams: one is door ajar switches and the other is door ajar and indicators

Thanks Autoprof. Where are you finding these drawings? Are they on the memory stick from Dinerman? I have not navigated that yet but am willing to try so I can see what I am up to. Past experience trying to navigate drawings has not been good because I do not know where to find the starting point. I am used to looking in a book so I can flip from page to page for ref.

Is the GRY/BLK also accessible in the kick panel, so I could maybe check there before ripping into the door? or should I just wait until I go in to do Muth Mirrors?
Sorry I was typing other reply when you posted this one
Yes the wire is in kick panel - connector C500 -terminal A1 gry/blk, A3 Lgn/Blk and A5 is the blk ground wire. You could check resistance between blk wire and gry blk wire (door harness side and connector unplugged) low resistance door open -- high resistance to infinite door closed

Better yet get a scan tool to check BCM and RDM data -- compare to each other and previous post info.

IF window goes back up the properly RDM is seeing the door close and I do not think problem in latch

Hurray - yesterday the thumb drive with the Service Manuals arrived! Thank you so much, xoxoxoBruce!!! Thatīs really awesome stuff. I love this community - so many people caring to collect information and provide it to others. Iīm still overwhelmed ...

My is now in another workshop. A car electric spezialist is now supporting me in looking for the fault. The wiring diagrams are a great help to understand the "miracles" happening in the guts of my black boxes. So I keep fingers crossed to get her back to the street soon.

Dinerman did a great service to the community putting together the Ultimate Key. It's a must have for anyone who doesn't want to throw money at their truck hoping fairies will come in the night and make everything better. Even if you can't do the work and finding someone familiar with the SSR is a joke, you can find someone who will do it if you have the reference materials.

Sorry blue streak -- I did not see this post ---
I have not opened the drive from dinerman -- They are in my glove box, I think?
I have a subscription to identifix that i get though school (I teach auto at a community college) This service has access to many factory service manuals.
You would look in wiring diagrams of service manual
I did find a diagram which shows both the door ajar and handle switch on one page -- it was in the section of wiring diagram for theft deterrent.
You never replied -- DOES door ajar message come on DIC?

My Permagrin is back!

Finally sheīs back on the road. The TCM had to be changed, now the roof is working again, gear control, power, etc. is back. There was no root cause visible, but the guy is assuming, that it may came from a temporary short circuit fault between the battery cells. True or not? I donīt want to proof it and changed the battery too.

The only problem not being solved right now is traction control & ABS. Both are still showing the warning signs and are not working. Seems to be a dead sensor somewhere? But this I hope to find out later.

Important is, that I can drive & smile ...

Keep you postet about the rest when I find the faults.

How did the shop identify the TCM as the cause of the problem?

The shop has the according software to get into the depth of the guts. So they could read it.

BTW, I got the guy wrong, the dead sensors are found too. But I donīt want to buy them in Germany. The TCM already cost about 600$ without programming just for the Hardware. And the sensors should cost about 120$ each (plus tax & work). I will try to get them in the States and pick it up when I (or a collegue) is having the next working trip in US.

When searching for TCM Problems, I found this:

But there the sensors were OK, it seems.

Glad you're making progress, Doc.
Having to fix things is a pain in the wallet, but not being able to figure out what to fix is hell.

Problem with driver side lights.

I replaced bulbs and 1 10 amp fuse but lights still won't come on on drivers side rear taillight and license plate light. Can you tell me what else I could try. The lights worked before I replaced bulbs and blew a fuse.

Ed, I have a friend that has an SSR but not on the fanatic site. The car is new to him and he hates computers. He wants the main fuse box fix installed. His car stops running and he needs to tap on the fuse box to get it going. He would like to send the unit to you. You did mine at the Springfield, IL rally.

If this is something you would be interested in doing, let me know. If you could PM me with info then I'll pass it on. That way he can contact you directly.

Thanks,
Tom (clemenza)

Hey Ed, if you're out there listening ... I posted another thread, https://www.ssrfanatic.com/forum/f5/n...1/#post3946938 concerning my 04 SSR, thought I had her fixed only to find her dead as a door nail this morning... brand new red top battery is completely discharged, hooked her up to a charger and there's a lot of resistance.

Wondering if any of this is making sense... I think she's got a short some where, causing the battery to completely discharge. I can't explain why I can't even jump her (yes I get a good ground to the engine block and yes all the gauges are showing electrical flow) but when I crank her over, I don't even get a click for the starter. Is it possible that the Ignition Switch went out again? What would cause a new battery to completely discharge?

Thanks!

Hi Ed, Are you the guy that replaces step motors in a gauge cluster? If so would you do a 2003 express 1500 van? I hope I remember correctly, gettin old ya know.

Welcome from central Ohio.
You have stumbled on THE best place for advice/help.

What year?
Which harness? It's not all one big harness there are sections.
With more information a fanatic that is parting one out or possibly Cleveland power and performance (google it and call), but they will ask these questions.
Might be good idea to start a new thread to get attention.

Welcome to the Family from one of the SoCal Nuts!
You might also want to introduce yourself in the New Members Forum and consider adding some information in your profile so others will know if you are nearby. We are a friendly group and you might fins some willing helpers when you begin replacement , or finding other issues you need help with.

The lights in the switches for radio & messages have burned out. I removed the switch to find that the lights are part of a printed circuit board. I don't need the lights to operate. But wondered if any one has experienced this problem. I have replaced both switches twice. Same result of burn out lights. I did find Chevrolet did have the parts available back several years ago when I was having multiple electrical problems. Now? Nope.

Go to the New Members Section and introduce yourself and ask him to get in touch with you. He should be able to send you a PM, which you cannot answer yet, but he can send you an email address or phone number that way if you ask politely.
Good luck and welcome.
