Nissan Maxima Service and Repair Manual: DTC/circuit diagnosis

  • U1000 CAN comm circuit
  • Description CAN (Controller Area Network) is a serial communication line for real time application. It is an on-vehicle multiplex communication line with high data communication speed and excellent error detection ability. Many electronic control units are equipped onto a vehicle and each control unit shares information and links with other control units during operation (not independent). In CAN communication, control units are connected with 2 communication lines (CAN-H, CAN-L) allowing a high rate of information transmission with less wiring. Each control unit transmits/receives data but selectively reads required data only. DTC Logic DTC DETECTION LOGIC Diagnosis Procedure 1.
