The cost to diagnose the B1147 Buick code is 1.0 hour of labor. The auto repair's diagnosis time and labor rates vary by location, vehicle's make and model, and even your engine type. Most auto repair shops charge between $75 and $150 per hour.
When the ignition switch is turned to RUN position, Side Impact Sensing Module (SISM) will perform tests to diagnose critical internal malfunctions. The SISM then tests the deployment loop for an open, short to ground or ignition, high or low resistance, or reserve energy failure condition. SISM transmits a 300-millisecond, 50 percent duty cycle, pulse width modulated signal to restrain Sensing and Diagnostic Module (SDM) over-circuit 2107 to indicate normal operation and no malfunctions. SISM communicates that it is turning off (ignition OFF) by sending a 20 millisecond, 50 percent duty cycle, pulse width modulated signal. The Diagnostic Trouble Code (DTC) sets when SDM receives a pulse width signal other than specified for normal operation, or no signal. SISM performs tests during POWER-ON, CONTINUOUS MONITORING, and asynchronously.
