DTC U2142 00
- Lost Communication With Yaw Rate Sensor (YRS)
Modules connected to the CAN bus serial data circuits monitor for serial data communications during normal vehicle operation. Operating
information and commands are exchanged among the modules. The modules have prerecorded information about what messages are needed to be
exchanged on the serial data circuits. The messages are supervised and also, some periodic messages are used by the receiver module as an
availability indication of the transmitter module. Each message contains the identification number of the transmitter module.
The electronic brake control module (EBCM) activates the other modules connected to the CAN serial data circuits by applying voltage when the
ignition key is in ACC, ON or START. The EBCM, Yaw Rate and Lateral Acceleration Sensor are the only modules connected to the CAN bus
serial data circuits. For more information on CAN bus serial data refer to Data Link Communications Description and Operation (See: Powertrain
Management/Computers and Control Systems/Information Bus/Description and Operation).
Conditions for Running the DTC
* The system voltage is between 9-16 volts.
* The vehicle power mode master requires serial data communication to occur.
Conditions for Setting the DTC
A supervised periodic message that includes the transmitter module availability has not been received.
Action Taken When the DTC Sets
* The vehicle stability enhancement system (VSES), if equipped, and traction control system (TCS) will not function.
* System OFF lamps will illuminate for these systems.
Conditions for Clearing the DTC
* A current DTC clears when the malfunction is no longer present.
* A history DTC clears when the module ignition cycle counter reaches the reset threshold of 50, without a repeat of the malfunction.
* Sometimes, while diagnosing a specific customer concern or after a repair, you may notice a history U-code present. However, there is no
associated "current" or "active" status. Loss-of- communication U-codes such as these can set for a variety of reasons. Many times, they are
transparent to the vehicle operator and technician, and/or have no associated symptoms. Eventually, they will erase themselves automatically
after a number of fault-free ignition cycles. This condition would most likely be attributed to one of these scenarios:
- A control module on the data communication circuit was disconnected while the communication circuit is awake.
- Power to one or more modules was interrupted during diagnosis.
- A low battery condition was present, so some control modules stop communicating when battery voltage drops below a certain threshold.
- Battery power was restored to the vehicle and control modules on the communication circuit did not all re-initialize at the same time.
- If a loss-of-communication U-code appears in history for no apparent reason, it is most likely associated with one of the scenarios above.
These are all temporary conditions and should never be interpreted as an intermittent fault, causing you to replace a part.
