Control Module: Description and Operation
TCM diagnostic functions
The control unit has built-in diagnostics, Volvo Diagnostics, which continually monitor the system and the input and output signals.
Diagnostic trouble codes
If the control unit detects a fault, it stores a diagnostic trouble code. If, for any reason, a fault disappears after the diagnostic trouble code has been
permanently stored in the control unit, information about the trouble code still remains in the control unit.
Reading and erasing diagnostic trouble codes
Stored diagnostic trouble codes can be read and erased using this facility.
Erasing diagnostic trouble codes can only be done when all the diagnostic trouble codes have been read at least once.
Reading input and output signals
Status of control unit input and output signals can be continually read using this facility.
