There are a number of other modules that can detect this problem including the body control module, transmission control module, the cruise control module. In some cases, a vehicle will need multiple drive cycles with this failure before the code will be stored in the Check Engine light will come on.

How does a mechanic diagnose the P0611 code?

To determine what the problem with the vehicle and the P0611 code, the mechanic will first want to hook up their scanner to the car’s on board computer. They will then check the code and reset it. They reset the code so they can then drive the car and see if it comes back. In some cases, it might have been triggered by accident. If they find that the code has returned, they will have a better idea of what they need to do repair the vehicle.

Common mistakes when diagnosing the P0611 code

In some cases, there may be a number of different codes stored in the vehicle, and this can lead the technician to trying to fix the wrong problems. This means the repair will not work. Some of the other codes that may appear when the P0611 code is stored include fuel injector codes, exhaust codes, and engine misfire codes. It is important for the technician to diagnose the codes in the order in which they were stored. This will make proper diagnosis and repair much easier

The following are some of the common types repairs the mechanic may need to do to fix the P0611 code:

  • First, the mechanic will check the trouble codes, reset them, and run the vehicle to see if they return
  • The mechanic will also check for any issues with the wiring such as shorted or corroded wires
  • Replace or repair the CAN bus harness

Unlike many of the other trouble codes, one of the most common issues for the code to appear is actually a problem with the control module. Replacing the control module is often the easiest and correct solution, but that’s not always the case.
