Principles of Operation

Key-In-Ignition Warning Chime

The key-in-ignition warning chime activates when the generic electronic module (GEM) detects the ignition switch circuits are in the OFF or ACC states and when the GEM detects the driver door is ajar from the driver door ajar circuits. Refer to the Chime Duration Table in this section for audible output, duration time, and priority ratings.

Airbag Warning Chime

The airbag warning chime activates when the GEM detects the ignition switch circuits are in the RUN state and when the GEM detects a chime is requested from the airbag system circuit. Refer to the Chime Duration Table for audible output, duration time, and priority ratings.

Door Ajar Warning Chime

The door ajar warning chime activates when the GEM detects the ignition switch circuits are in the RUN state and when the GEM detects the driver or passenger door is ajar from the driver and passenger door ajar circuits. Refer to the Chime Duration Table in this section for audible output, duration time, and priority ratings.

Headlamps Left on Warning Chime

The headlamps left on warning chime activates when the GEM detects the ignition switch circuits are in the KEYOUT state, when the GEM detects the driver door is ajar from the driver door ajar circuit, and when the GEM detects the headlamps or parklamps are on from the exterior lamp circuits. Refer to the Chime Duration Table in this section for audible output, duration time, and priority ratings.

Safety Belt Warning Chime

The safety belt warning chime and safety belt warning lamp activate when the GEM detects the ignition switch circuits are in the RUN or START state and when the GEM detects the safety belt is unbuckled from the safety belt circuit. The safety belt warning lamp indicator will prove out for three seconds whenever the GEM detects that the ignition circuits make a transition to RUN from OFF, ACC, or KEYOUT state. Refer to the Chime Duration Table in this section for audible output, duration time, and priority ratings.

Belt Minder

NOTE: Belt minder is a configurable item. If configuring using a diagnostic tool, refer to Section. To configure without using a diagnostic tool, refer to Belt Minder Deactivating/Activating in this section.

The belt minder feature supplements the current safety belt warning function. The belt minder feature is enabled after the current safety belt warning is complete. If the driver safety belt is not buckled approximately five seconds after the safety belt warning light has turned off, the belt minder reminds the driver that their safety belt is unbuckled by intermittently sound a chime and illuminating the safety belt warning lamp in the instrument cluster. While activated, the belt minder alternates the chime and indicator from on for six seconds to off for 30 seconds.

The belt minder reminder stops when:

  • the drive seat belt is buckled.
  • the ignition is turned to OFF or ACC.
  • five minutes have elapsed since belt minder has started.

Chime Duration Table

Inspection and Verification

NOTE: Upon installation of a new GEM, the module must be reconfigured. For additional information, refer to Section.

1. The warning lamps are a GEM controlled system; refer to Section.

2. Verify the customer concern by operating the system in question.

3. Visually inspect for the following obvious signs of mechanical and electrical damage.

Visual Inspection Chart

Mechanical Electrical
  • Switch(es)

  • Central junction box (CJB) fuses:
  • 28 (15A)
  • 32 (15A)
  • 39 (5A)
  • Circuitry

4. If the concern remains after the inspection, connect the diagnostic tool to the data link connector (DLC) located beneath the instrument panel and select the vehicle to be tested from the diagnostic tool menu. If the diagnostic tool does not communicate with the vehicle:

  • check that the program card is correctly installed.
  • check the connections to the vehicle.
  • check the ignition switch position.

5. If the diagnostic tool still does not communicate with the vehicle, refer to the diagnostic tool manual.

6. Carry out the Data Link Diagnostic Test. If the diagnostic tool responds with:

  • CKT914, CKT915 or CKT70 = ALL ECUS NO RESP/NOT EQUIP, refer to Section.
  • NO RESP/NOT EQUIP for GEM, go to Pinpoint Test A.
  • NO RESP/NOT EQUIP for RCM, refer to Section.
  • SYSTEM PASSED, retrieve and record the continuous diagnostic trouble codes (DTCs), erase the continuous DTCs and carry out self-test diagnostics for the GEM.

7. If the DTCs retrieved are related to the concern, go to the GEM Diagnostic Trouble Code (DTC) Index to continue diagnostics.

8. If no DTCs related to the concern are retrieved, proceed to the Symptom Chart to continue diagnostics.

9. If the DTCs retrieved are for the RCM, refer to Section.

Pinpoint Tests

CAUTION: Before removing and installing the generic electronic module (GEM) or its connectors, disconnect the battery. Failure to follow this caution will result in the GEM storing many erroneous DTCs, and it may exhibit erratic operation after installation.

CAUTION: Be careful when probing the central junction box (CJB), or any connectors.

Damage will result to the connector receptacle if the probe or terminal used is too large.

CAUTION: Electronic modules are sensitive to static discharges. If exposed to these charges, damage may result.

NOTE: If continuous DTCs are recorded and the symptom is not present when carrying out the pinpoint tests, an intermittent concern may be the cause. Always check for loose connections and corroded terminals.

Complete the entire pinpoint test related to the symptom before installing a new GEM.
