    Description of DTC code U1102 Generic

    The vehicle controllers communicate through the Serial Communication Protocol (SCP), which is known as the J1850 bus, or CAN (Control Area Network) bus. These communication systems can be fault-tolerant but usually are not, indicating that an intermittent or loose connection can cause communication between the controllers to be interrupted.

    The U1102 OBDII fault code setting is due to the PCM (Powertrain Control Module) not being able to establish communication with another controller on the CAN bus while the power switch is on.

    • Check Engine light illumination.
    • The engine may turn over but will not start.
    • Instrument panel gauges do not function properly.
    • Power window locks are intermittently malfunctioning.
    • Unable to communicate the PCM with a scanner.
