These three control modules are non serviceable and are part of the generator control module.
The eAssist hybrid system has a starter generator also called a drive motor. The starter generator is mounted to the front of the engine and is mechanically connected to the crankshaft pulley by a serpentine belt.

The hybrid powertrain control module uses a ratio of these two speeds to determine if the drive belt is missing or slipping.
