CAN COMMUNICATION SYSTEM(for LHD), Diagnostic DTC:U0208

DTC Code DTC Name
U0208 Lost Communication with "Seat Control Module A"

DESCRIPTION

DTC No. Detection Item DTC Detection Condition Trouble Area Note
U0208 Lost Communication with "Seat Control Module A" No communication from the position control ECU and switch assembly continues.
  • Position control ECU and switch assembly branch line or connector

  • Power source circuit of position control ECU and switch assembly

  • Position control ECU and switch assembly ground circuit

  • Position control ECU and switch assembly

Tech Tips

The main body ECU (multiplex network body ECU) stores DTCs when it detects a communication stop or network communication error for ECUs connected to sub bus 1.

Tech Tips

This diagnosis procedure is for when DTC U0208 is output by the main body ECU (multiplex network body ECU) (GTS display: Main Body).

CAUTION / NOTICE / HINT

Note


  • Before measuring the resistance of the CAN bus, turn the power switch off and leave the vehicle for 1 minute or more without operating the key or any switches, or opening or closing the doors. After that, disconnect the cable from the negative (-) auxiliary battery terminal and leave the vehicle for 1 minute or more before measuring the resistance.

  • After turning the power switch off, waiting time may be required before disconnecting the cable from the negative (-) auxiliary battery terminal. Therefore, make sure to read the disconnecting the cable from the negative (-) auxiliary battery terminal notices before proceeding with work.

  • After performing repairs, perform the DTC check procedure and confirm that the DTCs are not output again.

  • DTC check procedure: Turn the power switch on (IG) and wait at least 20 seconds.

  • After the repair, perform the CAN bus check and check that all the ECUs and sensors connected to the CAN communication system are displayed.

  • Inspect the fuses for circuits related to this system before performing the following procedure.

Tech Tips


  • Operating the power switch, any other switches or a door triggers related ECU and sensor communication on the CAN. This communication will cause the resistance value to change.

  • Even after DTCs are cleared, if a DTC is stored again after driving the vehicle for a while, the malfunction may be occurring due to vibration of the vehicle. In such a case, wiggling the ECUs or wire harness while performing the inspection below may help determine the cause of the malfunction.

PROCEDURE


  1. RECONFIRM DTC OUTPUT


    Body Electrical > Main Body > Trouble Codes
    1. Reconfirm DTCs.

      Tech Tips

      If DTC U1002 is output from Main Body of the main body ECU (multiplex network body ECU), this indicates a sub bus 1 malfunction. Troubleshoot for DTC U1002 and check for malfunctions in sub bus 1.
