AIC 003509.06 (AIC 3509.06) – Excessive Current in 5V Sensor Supply

AIC 003509.06 (AIC 3509.06)

Code: 003509.06

Shortcode: 3509.06


The error code AIC 3509.06 is generated when the current in the 5V sensor supply 1 of the Armrest Interface Control Unit exceeds normal levels, suggesting a possible short to ground.


The high current condition has caused the system to degrade the functionality of the affected circuit to prevent damage and maintain system safety.


  • Immediately inspect the 5V sensor supply circuit for any potential shorts to ground. Focus on checking all wiring and connections for integrity issues, such as frayed wires or loose connections.
  • Use an ammeter to measure the current flowing through the circuit to confirm that it is above the recommended levels and to help pinpoint the location of the excessive current flow.
  • Check for any damaged components within the circuit that might be causing increased current draw, such as failing resistors or other electrical components.
  • Replace or repair any faulty circuit elements. Ensure that all repairs comply with the manufacturer’s specifications to guarantee proper circuit functionality.
  • After completing repairs, recalibrate the circuit if necessary and perform thorough testing to ensure the current levels are back within safe operational limits and that the circuit’s function has been fully restored.


Maintaining the electrical integrity of control units is crucial for preventing overcurrent conditions that can lead to component failure and operational inefficiencies. Regular monitoring and immediate intervention upon detection of abnormal current flows are key to preserving the longevity and effectiveness of the machinery’s electronic systems.
