BCU 002354.09 (BCU 2354.09)

Code: 002354.09

Shortcode: 2354.09


Error code BCU 002354.09 is issued when the Power Module (High Frequency) PC6 in a John Deere vehicle experiences issues in receiving CAN bus messages from the Basic Control Unit (BCU) related to the E09 front corner worklights. This diagnostic trouble code indicates problems such as intermittent or non-existent reception of the messages, which could be due to loose wiring, faulty connections, or disruptions within the CAN bus system.


The system may display a warning or fault indicator to alert the operator of potential issues affecting the control and operation of the front corner worklights. This could impact the functionality of the lights, leading to reduced visibility or failure to operate when needed.


  • Inspect CAN Bus Wiring and Connections: Carefully check all wiring and connections related to the CAN bus system between the BCU and power module PC6. Look for loose, damaged, or corroded connections that could be causing communication interruptions.
  • Test CAN Bus Communication: Use diagnostic tools to assess the integrity and continuity of communication between the BCU and PC6. This will help pinpoint any specific areas or components where signal loss or errors occur.
  • Repair or Replace Faulty Wiring or Connectors: If any issues are discovered during the inspection, repair or replace the affected wiring or connectors to ensure stable and reliable communication.
  • Check BCU and PC6 Functionality: Verify that both the BCU and PC6 are functioning properly and not contributing to the problem by sending or receiving erroneous data. Consider reprogramming or replacing components if they are found to be faulty.
  • Reset the BCU and Power Module and Clear Diagnostic Codes: After resolving any hardware or connection issues, reset both the BCU and power module PC6 to clear any stored error codes and reinitialize the system settings. This step ensures that all components are communicating properly without further interruptions.
  • Monitor System Performance: Continue monitoring the system after repairs to ensure that communication has been fully restored and that the front corner worklights are operating correctly. Verify that no further communication issues are observed.


Maintaining reliable communication between the BCU and the power module PC6 is essential for the proper operation of the vehicle’s front corner worklights. Regular maintenance of the CAN bus system and timely attention to communication discrepancies can help prevent operational issues and ensure that the vehicle continues to perform efficiently and safely. Addressing CAN bus communication issues promptly helps minimize downtime and maintain operational efficiency.
