The Controller Area Network (CAN) is a standard bus system in vehicles that enables the connection of automotive devices without the need for a host computer. The exchange of operating information and commands among devices is facilitated by pre-programmed information about the required message exchange on the serial data circuits. Communication is carried out using two dedicated wires, known as CAN high and CAN low, with both lines carrying 2.5V when the CAN bus is in idle mode. During the transmission of data bits, the CAN high line increases to 3.75V while the CAN low drops to 1.25V, creating a 2.5V differential between the lines. Since communication relies on a voltage differential between the two bus lines, the CAN bus is NOT sensitive to inductive spikes, electrical fields, or other noise. The Diagnostic Trouble Code (DTC) sets when the Engine Control Module (ECM) is not transmitting or receiving CAN communication signals for 2 seconds or more.
