Default P1646



Output Driver Modules (ODM) are used by PCM to turn on
current-driven devices needed to control various engine and transaxle
functions. Each ODM can control up to 7 outputs, including boost
control solenoid, by supplying ground to device PCM is commanding on.
ODMs can diagnose each circuit individually. If ODM "A" output 5
(boost control solenoid driver circuit) detects an improper voltage
level, DTC is set.

You likely won't notice any drivability problems.


  • An improper voltage level has been detected on boost control
    solenoid driver circuit.

  • Check for faulty connections or damaged harness at BCS
  • Replace boost control solenoid.
