ETC 000876.19 – M02 Compressor Clutch, Incorrect CAN BUS Message (Power Module (HF) PC6)

ETC 000876.19 (ETC 876.19)

Code: 000876.19

Shortcode: 876.19


The error code ETC 000876.19 is triggered when the output for switching the compressor clutch (M02) is energized by more than one control unit. This indicates a conflict in the control signals being sent to the compressor clutch, which can cause erratic behavior or malfunction.


When this fault is detected, the control unit may disable the compressor clutch to prevent damage and ensure safe operation. This will result in the air conditioning system not functioning properly.


Inspect CAN BUS Network:

  • Check Control Units: Identify and verify the control units that are sending signals to the compressor clutch. Ensure that only one control unit is responsible for energizing the compressor clutch.
  • Inspect Wiring and Connections: Check the wiring and connectors between the control units and the compressor clutch for any signs of cross-wiring or incorrect connections. Repair or replace any faulty wiring.

Update and Reconfigure:

  • Software Updates: Apply any available firmware or software updates to the control units to ensure they are operating with the latest fixes and improvements.
  • Reconfigure Control Units: Reconfigure the control units to ensure that only one unit is authorized to control the compressor clutch. This may involve adjusting settings or reprogramming the control units.

Test and Replace Components:

  • Test Control Units: Verify the operation of the control units involved in energizing the compressor clutch. Replace any control units that are malfunctioning or sending incorrect signals.


Maintaining a reliable and properly configured CAN BUS network is critical for vehicle operations. Regular inspections and timely updates of the control units can help prevent communication errors and conflicts in control signals.
