Faulty Telescoping Steering Column Switch
Telescoping Steering Column Switch harness is open or shorted
Telescoping Steering Column Switch circuit poor electrical connection
Faulty Seat Control Module (SCM)
Engine Light ON (or Service Engine Soon Warning Light)
The Telescoping Steering Column Switch circuit provides an input to the Left (LH) Seat Control Module (SCM) when the switch is held closed in the in, button pressed toward driver, or out, button pressed toward I/P, position. The SCM monitors a 12 volt signal applied to the steering column switch circuit. When the steering column switch is closed in the position, the column in 12 volt signal is grounded and pulled low within the SCM, indicating a column out request. The Diagnostic Trouble Code (DTC) sets when the steering column switch input, to the SCM, is active for more than 20 seconds.
