P0AE7 CADILLAC Meaning

The hybrid battery system voltage is controlled by two high voltage contactors. The high voltage contactors allow the high voltage DC batteries to be connected to the vehicle or safely contain the high voltage DC within the Hybrid/EV Battery Pack assembly. Of the two contactors, one is a pre-charge contactor and the other is the primary contactor. The two contactors are closed in a specific sequence by the Starter/Generator Control Module. The pre-charge contactor is closed first. This causes high voltage to flow through the pre-charge resistor, allowing system voltage to build slowly. Once the system voltage has raised and stabilized, the primary contactor is closed. Both contactors are controlled by the Starter/Generator Control Module. The Starter/Generator Control Module supplies B+ to each contactor at all times. When the contactors are to be closed, the Starter/Generator Control Module will provide a ground to the contactor through a low side driver.
