My car will not start. When i turn the key nothing happens and the only thing that comes on is the instrument panel. My errors read "Reduced Engine Power", "Service ABS", "Service Active Handling", "Service Traction Sys".
Here are the codes I found: (C)
1. TCS - C1235
2. SDM - U1000
3. SDM - U1064
4. IPC - U1160
5. IPC - U1176

Just recently my ABS light came on a few days ago. Today after trying to start the car i looked at the rear right wheel and noticed a wire dangling like the picture below. (I found this pic on a different website but mine looks similar to this.)



The bad thing about it is that it rained last night too and that wire was hanging low to the ground. Do you think it caused a shortage? Is this wire causing my car to not start. And what can I do to fix it?

Sorry, right now i'm at work and cannot see the pic. You say that it rained last night? is there any chance that your hood was open or a leak under the hood?
That wire you speak of could cause some problems if it has a connector and is wet. Is the wire broken?

The hood was closed and no sign of water in the engine. Im pretty sure the wire controls the ABS(it does have a connector). Yes the wire is broke (as if someone yanked it out really hard).

That is probably the connection to the wheel speed sensor for ABS and active handling. I would get it repaired be for attempting to drive the car.

So is that causing the problem of "reduced engine power" and not being able to start the car?




P.S. Thanks for everyones help!!!

The connector is still attached but it looks like two black wires were pulled from the disc. Im looking for the other end to maybe splice it.

That is a good place to start. I know that when I wash the engine compartment of my Vette and have forgotten to reconnect the hood lamp prior to doing so, I've had some electrical issues. This last underhood cleaning got the fuse box a little wet and I had the problem that you're describing. I used compressed air to dry the fuse box and no more problem.
But you should start with the first problem and go from there :thumbsup:

The next door neighbor told me the water was pretty deep. The water marks came half way up the rim. I also found water on the carpet. I'm guessing some of the electrical components got wet from the rain. Guess ill just have to take it in to the GM. I better put some over time in. :down:.

1/2 way up the rim??? That would have gotten your PCM Wet. You may be able to remove the PCM and get it dried with some compressed air :thumbsup:

The PCM is located on the passenger side behind the front tire. You'll need a 7mm socket. Remove the tire to gain room to remove the splash shield. Once you remove the splash shield you'll be able to see the PCM. It, too is held in place with 7mm screws and the wiring is held in with 7mm screws. :thumbsup:

I installed a new pcm and the car still wont start. It's also saying low fuel and there's at least a half a tank in it. I haven't had the new pcm flashed yet. Would not having it flashed make the car still not start?

Heres a list of the codes:

P0122
P0405
P1336
