B106E Meaning

When a repetitive fault causing a circuit overload is detected on certain output circuits, the Smart Junction Box (SJB) disables the circuit by removing voltage, or ground, to the affected circuit. The circuit remains disabled until the fault is corrected and an on-demand self-test is run. When the on-demand self-test has been run after all faults have been corrected, any DTCs related to the fault are cleared.
