|What Does the B3920 Chevrolet Code Mean?

The Seat Memory Control Module controls the seat, lumbar, and adjustable pedal motors via half bridges that are connected to power rails internal to the module. The Seat Memory Control Module connects all of the motor control circuits on each power rail to a common reference point whenever they are not in operation. The module monitors all seat motor control circuits for a shorted to ground or voltage before enabling any seat motor.
When a power seat, lumbar, or adjustable pedal switch is pressed or when a memory recall is requested, each seat motor receives battery voltage and ground from the seat memory control module via the motor control circuits. All motors are reversible, so the direction the motor rotates depends on which control circuit voltage is applied and which control circuit ground is applied. When the switch is operated in the opposite direction, the module reverses the polarity and applies voltage and ground to the opposite circuits to move the seat in the opposite direction.
The Diagnostic Trouble Code (DTC) sets when the voltage on any power rail 1 motor control circuit exceeds 2.78 volts for 100 ms or is below 1.47 volts for 100 ms.
