Nissan Maxima Service and Repair Manual: U1000 CAN comm circuit
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 line, CAN L line) allowing a high rate of information transmission with less wiring.
Each control unit transmits/receives data but selectively reads required data only.
DTC DETECTION LOGIC
- Turn ignition switch OFF.
- Disconnect ABS actuator and electric unit (control unit) connector.
- Check terminals for deformation, disconnection, looseness, and so on. If any malfunction is found, repair or replace terminals.
- Reconnect connector and perform self-diagnosis
