Start by checking the "Possible Causes" listed above. Visually inspect the related wiring harness and connectors. Check for damaged components and look for broken, bent, pushed out, or corroded connector's pins.
The cost to diagnose the P0A1F 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.
Battery Energy Control Module Internal PerformanceThe Battery Energy Control Module (BECM) will diagnose its own systems and determine when a fault condition is present. Diagnostics and system status is communicated from the battery energy control module to the hybrid powertrain control module through serial data. The hybrid powertrain control module is the host controller for diagnostic trouble code (DTC) information. The EBECM monitors to detect an Random Access Memory (RAM), Read Only Memory (ROM), Erasable Programmable Read-Only Memory (EPROM) or controller stack overrun. The EBECM sets the OBDII code when the RAM, ROM, EPROM or controller stack overrun is not to factory specifications.
This diagnostic applies to internal microprocessor integrity conditions within the battery energy control module. This fault is internal to the battery energy control module and no external circuits are involved.
