SERVICE PROCEDURE / INFORMATION:

Although DTC P1C00 alone does NOT cause the Check Engine light to come on, it will likely be found when checking for any stored DTCs in the ECM.  If the battery sensor is not replaced after identifying a stored P1C00, it will reset after clearing the memory on the next key cycle.  When P1C00 is found in memory of a vehicle built prior to the production change, replace the battery sensor following the procedure in the applicable Service Manual.
