Lexus NX: MOST Communication Malfunction (B15D0)

DESCRIPTION

Navigation system components communicate with each other via MOST communication.

If a line short or short to ground occurs in a MOST communication line, communication will not be possible and the navigation system will not operate normally.

After the power switch is turned on (ACC), if the MOST communication network cannot be established and MOST communication is determined to not be possible, this DTC will be stored.

HINT:

Electrical noise may cause communication malfunctions between devices in the MOST network.

DTC No.

CAUTION / NOTICE / HINT

NOTICE:

  • Depending on the parts that are replaced during vehicle inspection or maintenance, performing initialization, registration or calibration may be needed. Refer to Precaution for Navigation System.

  • When replacing the radio receiver assembly, always replace it with a new one. If a radio receiver assembly which was installed to another vehicle is used, the following may occur:
    • A communication malfunction DTC may be stored.
    • The radio receiver assembly may not operate normally.

PROCEDURE

1.

CHECK DTC

(a) Check for DTCs.

Body Electrical > Navigation System > Trouble Codes

Result

Proceed to

DTC B15C3 and B15D3 are not output

A

DTC B15C3 is output

B

DTC B15D3 is output

C

HINT:

  • If a short occurs in a speaker circuit, the sound output from the speakers will become very low or will stop and DTC B15C3 will be stored.

    In this case, if the audio system volume is increased, current in the speaker circuit will increase more than necessary.

    To prevent the current from becoming excessively high, when it increases to a certain amount, operation of the stereo component amplifier assembly will be suspended.

    If operation is suspended, MOST communication will become impossible, the navigation system will not operate normally and DTC B15D0 will be stored.

  • If DTC B15C3 and B15D3 are output at the same time, perform troubleshooting for DTC B15C3 first.
