Vehicle: 2016 Chevy Silverado 1500, 4WD, V8-5.3L, Automatic Transmission/Transaxle

Mileage: 79,659

Problem: The owner of this Silverado had an intermittent stalling concern; primarily with their travel trailer connected.

Case Details: The technician connected a scan tool and found the following diagnostic trouble codes (DTCs).

  • P0562 - System Voltage Low
  • C111B - Trailer Brake Power Control Module System Voltage
  • B1035 - Audio Output 2 Circuit
  • B1045 - Left Rear Audio Output Circuit
  • B1055 - Right Rear Audio Output Circuit
  • B1325 - Device Power Circuit Voltage
  • U0101 - Lost Communication with Transmission Control Module
  • U0102 - Lost Communication with Transfer Case Control Module
  • U0121 - Lost Communication with Electronic Brake Control Module


He cleared all the DTCs and test drove the truck with the trailer connected to see if the DTCs would return. The truck stalled once, and all the DTCs except U0121 returned.

The tech used his scan tool along with the trailer brake control module scan tool information data list in ALLDATA to evaluate the Brake Control Module (TBCM). The testing showed that the TBCM was faulty.

Confirmed Repair: The technician replaced the TBCM and went for another test drive. This time, he drove it a little longer. The truck ran fine, no stalling. Fixed!
