Toyota CH-R Service Manual: Open in One Side of Bus 4 Branch Line

Toyota CH-R Service Manual / Networking / Can Communication System / Open in One Side of Bus 4 Branch Line


When the CAN bus main lines are normal (no open, short to ground, short to +B or short between lines) and there is an ECU or sensor on the "Communication Bus Check" screen that is indicated as not communicating or whose connection status on the "Communication Bus Check" screen changes intermittently, an open in one of the wires of a CAN bus branch line is suspected.


If there is an ECU or sensor whose connection status changes intermittently while checking the "Communication Bus Check" screen, there may be an open circuit in one of the wires of a branch line of an ECU or sensor in the bus. If an open occurs in one of the wires of a CAN branch line, it may interfere with the communication of other ECUs or sensors resulting in an incorrect state being displayed.


Trouble Area

There is an ECU or sensor that is indicated as not communicating on the "Communication Bus Check" screen or whose connection status on the "Communication Bus Check" screen changes intermittently.

One side of CAN branch line is open, or output signals are incomplete.

  • Steering sensor
  • Power steering ECU assembly
  • Brake actuator assembly
  • Occupant detection ECU

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

    DTC check procedure: Turn the blind spot monitor system on using the blind spot monitor main switch (ON/OFF switch), turn the cruise control main switch on, turn the LDA main switch on and then drive the vehicle at a speed of 60 km/h (37 mph) or more for approximately 5 minutes or more.

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