Code P1630 Buick Description
The Body Control Module (BCM) sends the pre-release information to the Engine Control Module (ECM) via the serial data circuit. The ECM then sends a challenge to the BCM. Both the ECM and BCM perform a calculation on this challenge. If the calculated response from the BCM equals the calculation performed by the ECM, the ECM will allow the vehicle to start. The BCM follows this action by sending the remaining immobilizer data to the ECM. If the immobilizer data sent by the BCM matches that stored by the ECM, the ECM will allow the engine to remain running. The Diagnostic Trouble Code (DTC) will be set if the ECM receives incorrect immobilizer data from the BCM.
