P0AA8 BUICK Meaning

The vehicle is equipped with a high voltage isolation monitor feature. The purpose of the isolation monitor is to test the resistance between the high voltage positive and negative direct current (DC) bus and chassis ground. The isolation monitoring system measures the resistance between the high voltage system and chassis ground in the following way. The isolation monitoring system measures voltage potential difference between the positive battery mid pack voltage and chassis ground as well as the voltage difference between negative battery mid pack voltage and chassis ground. These voltage values are used by the starter/generator control module to calculate a resistance value between the high voltage bus and the chassis ground. If this resistance value is too low, a high voltage isolation fault has occurred.
