DIAGNOSTIC/SERVICE PROCEDURE

may occur on some vehicles. This may be caused


by an intermittent Battery Saver, Accessory Delay
or One-Touch-Down Relay operation and possible
chafing of vehicle wire harness.

Accurately RECORD ALL Diagnostic Trouble Codes


(DTCs) from the Generic Electronic Module (GEM).
The following codes can be generated by a faulty
relay:
B1371-Illuminated Entry Relay-Circuit
B1302-Accessory Delay Relay-Circuit
B1398-One-Touch-Down Relay-Circuit 1
B1814-Rear Wiper Motor Down Relay-Circuit
B1818-Rear Wiper Motor Up Relay-Circuit
P1820-Transfer Case L2H Relay-Circuit
P1824-Clutch Relay-Circuit
P1828-Transfer Case H2L Relay-Circuit

ACTION

DIAGNOSIS

Repair the affected circuit, and/or replace the


Battery Saver, Accessory Delay, or
One-Touch-Down Relay. Refer to the following
Diagnostic/Service Procedure for details before
replacing any components.

1.

If you have any of these codes B1371, B1814,


B1818, and/or the interior lights or rear wipers
are part of the customer concerns, go to Step
12. Otherwise locate the Accesory Delay Relay
and proceed to next Step.

2.

Put key in RUN.

b. If Ground is not present, follow standard
GEM troubleshooting procedures.
20. Check for battery voltage at Pin 3.
a. If battery voltage is present, follow standard
GEM troubleshooting procedures.
b. If battery voltage is not present, go to Step
21.
21. Check all female terminals at the relay.
a. If all terminals are tight and all wiring crimps
are good, REPLACE the Battery Saver
Relay, then go to Step 22.
b. Make sure all terminals are tight and all
wiring crimps are secure then go to Step
19.
22. Verify all concerns are corrected.
a. If all concerns are corrected, return vehicle
to customer.
b. If all concerns are NOT corrected, go to
Step 23.
