FAULT CODE 1518 At Least One Module Has A Moderately Severe Fault Condition Exists

Overview
CODE Fault Code: 1518 PID: SPN: 1484 FMI: 31 LAMP: Amber SRT: REASON At Least One Module Has A Moderately Severe Fault Condition Exists EFFECT Dependent on particular faults from ECM1, ECM2, or ECM3 that triggered Fault Code 1518.

CM850 Electronic Control Module - QST30 Power Generation Interface Engine

Circuit Description The ECM3 lights an amber lamp when ECM1 and/or ECM2 have a Moderately Severe Fault. Component Location The ECMs are located on the rear of the engine. ECM1, ECM2, and ECM3 are located above the flywheel housing at the rear of the engine. Refer to Procedure 100-002 for detailed component locations. Shop Talk There are multiple ECMs for the engine model included in this manual. Each ECM has an individual source address that displays when INSITE electronic service tool is connected. When troubleshooting a fault code, use the source address displayed in INSITE electronic

service tool to determine which ECM and circuit is affected. The ECM3 contains status information about ECM1 and ECM2. When ECM1 and ECM2 have a Moderately Severe Fault Code, ECM3 will recognize this and light an amber lamp. When the Fault Code 1518 is flashed out it means that ECM1 and/or ECM2 have at least one Moderately Severe Fault Code. Fault Code 1518 will be flashed out, not the individual fault codes that are causing Fault Code 1518. Since Fault Code 1518 can represent more than one Moderately Severe Fault Code, INSITE electronic service tool can be connected in order to read the fault code(s) causing Fault Code 1518 and to troubleshoot accordingly. Possible causes of this fault code include:

ECM1 and/or ECM2 have at least one Moderately Severe Fault Code (Amber).

Troubleshooting Steps
STEPS STEP 1. Check the ECM for fault codes. STEP 1A. Check the ECM for fault codes. STEP 2. Clear the fault codes. STEP 2A. Disable the fault code. STEP 2B. Clear the fault code. Fault Code 1518 is inactive? All fault codes cleared? Fault Code 1518 and other fault codes are active? SPECIFICATIONS

Guided Step 1 - Check the ECM for fault codes.

Guided Step 1A - Check the ECM for fault codes.
