TROUBLE CODE

2004 GMC Envoy

Electrical problem
2004 GMC Envoy 6 cyl Two Wheel Drive Automatic 73000 miles

My GMC is showing the check engine on, and the computer reads the following code:

P1680 - Driver 5 (ECU Malfunction)

Can you explain me what does that means? And if there is something I can do to fix it by myself?

Thanks in advance,
