ISSUE:

The Anti-lock Brake System (ABS) lamp may illuminate and Diagnostic Trouble Code (DTC) B1342 may be stored in memory and/or New Generation Star (NGS) Tester may read “Invalid Code.” This may be caused by the Nonvolatile Random Access Memory (NVRAM) chip inside the anti-lock brake control module not resetting at low residual voltages. ABS brake function may become inoperative, however, normal braking operation will be maintained.

ACTION:

Replace the anti-lock brake control module. Modules with a build date of 2/19/98 or later have been revised to incorporate a new NVRAM chip. Refer to the appropriate Workshop Manual, Section 206-09, for replacement procedures.
