  • If all units are not communicating or only the MICU is communicating, go to MICU DTC U1280 troubleshooting.

4. Select the system that has the problem from the BODY ELECTRICAL SYSTEM SELECT menu, then select DTCs.

  • If any DTCs are indicated, go to step 5.
  • If the problem is related to one of the following items and the system that is malfunctioning does not stop or turn off, go to B-CAN System Diagnosis Test Mode C - Refer to: Body Electrical Troubleshooting - B-CAN System Diagnosis Test Mode C - No DTCs and Output Won't Shut OFF
  • If the problem is related to one of the following items and the system that is malfunctioning does not run or turn on, go to B-CAN System Diagnosis Test Mode D - Refer to: Body Electrical Troubleshooting - B-CAN System Diagnosis Test Mode D - No DTCs and Output Won't Turn ON.
  • Exterior lights
  • Turn signals
  • Entry light control
  • Interior lights
  • Horns (security and panic)
