Common Powertrain Controller (CPC) Repairs
The Common Powertrain Controller (CPC) is a module used with Detroit Diesel engines. The CPC is the interface between the Motor Control Module (MCM) and the vehicle electronics system, acting as a communication gateway.
The role of the MCM is to determine and evaluate all the parameters required by the engine to function. The MCM calculates the load levels, and ambient conditions and evaluates other sensors that the engine requires to function.
The values determined by the MCM are relayed over a CAN interface to the rest of the vehicle. The CPC4 functions as the gateway for the MCM to replay the information which allows the operator to control the vehicle. The CPC unit accepts other analog and digital inputs as well from the throttle, ABS, EBM, cooler level, etc which is also required by the engine and operator.
The CPC is an important gateway in the vehicle between a variety of modules. Once the CPC fails the communication between these modules is disrupted and the vehicle typically shuts down the throttle. Other forms of failure in the CPC module include:
The vehicle engine does not want to start
CPC module does not correctly identify
CPC hardware failure with SPN 609 FMI 12 fault code
Check engine light is on
ABS engine light due to failed CPC4 module
DEF engine light is on
Once the repaired CPC unit is reinstalled into the vehicle no additional programming is required. The vehicle will be 100% back to normal and the unit is 100% plug and play.
100% Plug and play CPC- There is no other programming required once repaired

Can a CPC module be repaired?
Yes, a CPC4 module can be repaired. Some CPC modules require a reball of the BGA and others require board-level repairs.
When choosing a CPC repair service, always ensure that you choose a company that rebuilds the entire board and not just the BGA. Rebuilding the entire CPC takes much longer but the repair will last much longer.

What is a CPC module?
The common powertrain controller (CPC) is a module that serves as a communication device between various modules in the truck. The CPC receives information from the other modules such as the MCM and ECM and calculates the power that the truck has to deliver if the throttle is pressed.
If the CPC fails or detects an internal issue it shuts down the throttle as a safety feature.
What happens if my CPC is stolen?
If your CPC has been stolen, The ECU Pro can offer you a rebuild replacement.
We can ship a rebuilt CPC to you that has been coded to your truck within 1 business day or receiving the order.
Call us today to get your truck back on the road.
What are the common failure symptoms of a CPC?
The most common failure symptom of a failed CPC is deal throttle. The CPC module relies on data from various modules. If the CPC fails or stops receiving data from the other modules, it shuts down the throttle. Another common failure symptom is an empty DEF gauge or if the CPC identifies as another module such as a CPC2.
If you are experiencing any of the above issues, it is recommended to read the SPN codes on the CPC with a diagnostic tool such as DDDL or Diesel Laptop. Typical SPN codes that will indicate if a CPC has failed is:
The length of the repair process will depend on the specific issue with your CPC4 module and the repair option you choose. Testing of the module typically takes a few hours, while repairs and replacements can take anywhere from a few days to a week. Our express 1-day repair option is available for those who need their truck back on the road as soon as possible.
