U1450 RAM Meaning

The messages sent on the Controller Area Network (CAN) bus are distinguished by an Identifier (ID). Each CAN ID is defined to contain a certain number of bytes. The Electronic Limited Slip Differential (ELSD) Module verifies that it has received the proper number of bytes for each ID. The Diagnostic Trouble Code (DTC) sets when the ELSD Module detects an incorrect message from the Drive Train Control Module (DTCM).
