Figure 1. Motor Control Module

Note: Do NOT ground the MCM. This can result in false codes being logged.

The Motor Control Module (MCM) incorporates a heat exchanger which uses fuel to cool the MCM. The top plate of the heat exchanger incorporates the inlet and outlet fitting for fuel supply entering and exiting the heat exchanger. The bottom section of the heat exchanger is incorporated into the MCM housing and is serviced with the MCM.‪

Section 17.2.1
Engine Harness

The MCM has a 120–pin connector Engine Harness which is factory installed. It also has a 21–pin connector which is the responsibility of the OEM. The pinouts for the 120–pin connector are listed in Table "MCM Connector – DD15 Engine (1 of 4)" , Table "MCM Connector – DD15 Engine (2 of 4)" , Table "MCM Connector – DD15 Engine (3 of 4)" , and Table "MCM Connector – DD15 Engine (4 of 4)" .‪

The pinout for the 21–pin connector is listed in Table "21–Pin Connector to the MCM" .‪

Table 5. MCM Connector – DD15 Engine (4 of 4)
Section 17.2.1.1
Connector Brackets

The harnesses on MCM must be bracketed and held secure. The bracket design will change for different engines as the routing is different. The 120–pin connector and the 21-pin connector must be tie-wrapped to the brackets.‪

Section 17.2.1.2
MCM 21–pin and 31–pin Connectors

The wiring for the VIH 21–pin to the MCM is listed in Table "21–Pin Connector to the MCM" . The side of the connector shown is looking into the pins. ‪
