Default P0621

Have this code pop up a lot in the last few days. Searched around and haven't seen any info on it. One post said it may have to do with a cam or crank pin bent and spun a degree or two but noone seems to know for sure. Would anybody that works for GM care to look up diagnostics on this code tomorrow at work?

DTC P0621

Diagnostic Instructions

Perform the Diagnostic System Check - Vehicle prior to using this diagnostic procedure.
Review Strategy Based Diagnosis for an overview of the diagnostic approach.
Diagnostic Procedure Instructions provides an overview of each diagnostic category.

DTC Descriptor

DTC P0621: Generator L-Terminal Circuit.

Circuit/System Description

The engine control module (ECM)/powertrain control module (PCM) uses the generator turn ON signal circuit to control the load of the generator on the engine. A high side driver in the ECM/PCM applies a voltage to the voltage regulator. This signals the voltage regulator to turn the field circuit ON and OFF. The ECM/PCM monitors the state of the circuit. The ECM/PCM should detect low voltage on circuit when the ignition is ON and the engine is OFF, or when the charging system malfunctions. With the engine running, the ECM/PCM should detect high voltage on the circuit. The ECM/PCM performs key a ON and RUN test to determine the status of the circuit.

Conditions for Running the DTC

Key ON Test

No generator, crankshaft position (CKP) sensors, or camshaft position (CMP) sensor DTCs are set.
The ignition is in RUN position.
The engine is not running.

RUN Test:

No generator, CKP sensors, CMP sensor DTCs are set.
The engine is running

Conditions for Setting the DTC

During the key ON test, the ECM/PCM detects high voltage on the generator turn ON signal circuit for at least 5 seconds.
During the RUN test the ECM/PCM detects low voltage on the generator turn ON signal circuit for at least 15 seconds.

Action Taken When the DTC Sets

The ECM/PCM will command the charge indicator and or warning message to be illuminated on the instrument panel cluster (IPC) and the driver information center (DIC), if equipped.
The ECM/PCM will not illuminate the malfunction indicator lamp (MIL).
The ECM/PCM will store conditions, which were present when the DTC set as Fail Records data only.

Conditions for Clearing the DTC

The history DTC will clear after 40 consecutive warm-up cycles have occurred without a malfunction.

Circuit/System Testing

1. Ignition OFF, disconnect the harness connector at the generator.
2. Ignition ON, test for less than 1 volt between the generator turn ON signal circuit terminal B and ground.

-If greater than the specified range, test the circuit for a short to voltage. If the circuit tests normal, replace the ECM/PCM.

3. Engine running, test for greater than 3.5 volts between the generator turn ON signal circuit terminal B and ground.

-If less than the specified range, test the circuit for a short to ground, an open or a high resistance. If the circuit tests normal, replace the ECM/PCM.

4. If the circuit test normal, replace the generator.
