The P0599 code for a Chevy Sonic refers to an issue with the thermostat heater control circuit. This code indicates that the engine control module (ECM) has detected an electrical malfunction in the thermostat heater control circuit. The thermostat heater helps the engine warm up faster and maintain a consistent operating temperature.
When this code is set, it typically means there is a problem with the wiring or the thermostat heater itself. A mechanic will need to diagnose the specific cause of the issue by using a scan tool to retrieve and analyze the stored fault codes, and then perform a visual inspection of the wiring and related components.
If the issue is with the wiring, the mechanic may need to repair or replace damaged wires or connectors. If the issue is with the thermostat heater itself, it may need to be replaced. In some cases, the ECM may also need to be replaced or reprogrammed.
It is important to have this issue addressed as soon as possible, as it can cause poor engine performance and reduced fuel economy.
