Lexus NX: Open in Rear Door Electrical Antenna Circuit, Front Passengers Side (B27A4)

DESCRIPTION

The certification ECU (smart key ECU assembly) generates a request signal and transmits the signal to the rear door outside handle assembly (for front passenger side) (electrical key antenna) at intervals of 0.25 seconds. For the rear door outside handle assembly (for front passenger side) (electrical key antenna) to detect when the electrical key transmitter sub-assembly is brought close to the vehicle, a signal requesting a response from the electrical key transmitter sub-assembly is transmitted within approximately 1 m (3.28 ft.) of the rear door at intervals of 0.25 seconds. DTC B27A4 is stored by the certification ECU (smart key ECU assembly) when an open circuit is detected between the certification ECU (smart key ECU assembly) and rear door outside handle assembly (for front passenger side) (electrical key antenna) (between terminals CLG4 and ANT1, or terminals CG4B and ANT2).

CAUTION / NOTICE / HINT

NOTICE:

  • The smart access system with push-button start (for Entry Function) uses the LIN communication system and CAN communication system. Inspect the communication function by following How to Proceed with Troubleshooting. Troubleshoot the smart access system with push-button start (for Entry Function) after confirming that the communication systems are functioning properly.

  • When using the Techstream with the power switch off, connect the Techstream to the DLC3 and turn a courtesy light switch on and off at intervals of 1.5 seconds or less until communication between the Techstream and the vehicle begins. Then select the vehicle type under manual mode and enter the following menus: Body Electrical / Smart Access. While using the Techstream, periodically turn a courtesy light switch on and off at intervals of 1.5 seconds or less to maintain communication between the Techstream and the vehicle.
  • Before replacing the certification ECU (smart key ECU assembly), refer to smart access system with push-button start (for Entry Function) Precaution.
