Toyota Venza: Lost Communication with ECM / PCM "A" (U0100)

DESCRIPTION

The engine control unit communicates with the TCM using the Controller Area Network (CAN).

If there is a problem in this communication, the TCM sets a DTC.

DTC No.

CAUTION / NOTICE / HINT

NOTICE:

Perform the universal trip to clear permanent DTCs (See page ).


HINT:

  • Refer to inspection procedure for CAN communication system.
  • If the CAN communication malfunctions, the TCM cannot receive the current data from the ECM. In this case, the freeze frame data output from the TCM has not been updated, so the data will not be useful for the inspection. However, reading the Data List as the first step in troubleshooting is effective to find malfunctions.
  • The malfunction area can be checked using the Bus Check function on the Techstream (See page ).
