CAN Communication Line Resistance Inspection

In this model, resistors for CAN communication line are built in the ECU [A] and meter unit.

CAN Communication Line Resistance Inspection


CAN Communication Line Resistance (at ECU Connector)

Connections: Terminal 27 ←→ Terminal 28

Standard: 123 125 Ω


CAN Communication Line Resistance Inspection


If the reading is out of the range, replace the ECU (see ECU Removal/Installation).

If the reading is within the range, resistor of the ECU for CAN communication line is normal.

Special Tool - Hand Tester: 57001-1394

If the wiring is open, repair or replace the main harness.
