P0C05 BUICK Meaning

The generator control module also called the starter generator control module is comprised of the following three control modules; the hybrid powertrain control module, 14 volt power module and the drive motor control module. These three control modules are non serviceable and are part of the generator control module.
The drive motor control module operates the starter generator, also referred to as the drive motor. The drive motor control module controls the speed and output torque of the starter generator through the sequencing actuation of high current switching transistors called insulated gate bipolar transistors. Each insulated gate bipolar transistor assembly is monitored for overcurrent conditions.
