Code P0641 2007 Chevy 1500

2007 Chevy 1500I have Code P0641 on my 2007 Chevy 1500, Where should I start?


Check your connections at the computer and the wiring harness. If all checks out you will most likely need to replace the ECM itself.

P0641 CHEVROLET – 5 Volt Reference Voltage Incorrect

The control module has 2 internal 5-volt reference buses called 5-volt reference 1 and 5-volt reference 2 . Each reference bus provided 5-volt reference circuit for more than one sensor. Therefore, a fault condition on one 5-volt reference circuit will affect the other 5-volt reference circuits connected to the reference bus. The control module monitors the voltage on the 5-volt reference buses.

When is the code detected?
The Engine Control Module (ECM) has detected the sensor 5 volt reference circuit voltage is higher or lower than expected
Code P0641 Possible causes
– Faulty Engine Control Module (ECM)
– ECM harness is open or shorted
– ECM circuit poor electrical connection
– Shorted sensor on 5 volt circuit
