2006 Pontiac G6 - No Generic
2006 Pontiac G6
This vehicle was located at

The first step is to review
communication schematics for the
vehicle you are working on.
This is a GMLAN communication

The second step is to OHM test
between DLC pins 6 and 14.
A BOB was attached to the vehicle
at the DLC.
The ohm value we would like to see
is 60 ohms.

The red ohmmeter lead was placed
in pin 6 and the black lead was
placed in pin 14.
The ohm value noted on the
DVOM was .505 Mohms or 505,000

The third step is to locate any
modules that may house the
terminating resistors.
The BCM and PCM have been
located and identified as these

The BCM C2 was then
disconnected with the connector to
the PCM left intact.
The ohm value on the DVOM was
120 ohms. (correct)

The BCM was then re-connected
and the PCM C3 connector
The ohm value on the DVOM was
120 ohms. (correct)
The PCM connector was
then re-installed. Generic

There will be rare cases where a
simple disconnect and re-connect
may solve a communication issue .
It is interesting to note that this
was the first request for testing on
this subject vehicle.
No further concerns or issues were
Generic communication has been
Monitors must run and pass before
returning to the emissions test
