BCU 002360.09 – E15 Rear-Facing Worklights on Fenders, Incorrect CAN Bus Message from BCU. John Deere System Advisory.

BCU 002360.09 (BCU 2360.09)

Code: 002360.09

Shortcode: 2360.09

Description:

Error code BCU 002360.09 is triggered when the Power Module (High Frequency) PC6 in a John Deere vehicle encounters issues in receiving CAN bus messages from the Basic Control Unit (BCU) specifically concerning the E15 rear-facing worklights on the rear fenders. This diagnostic trouble code points to problems such as intermittent or entirely absent communication, which could be due to issues like loose wiring, faulty connections, or other disruptions within the CAN bus network.

Reaction:

The system may signal this fault by activating warning indicators on the vehicle’s dashboard, potentially affecting the control and operation of the rear-facing worklights. This could lead to operational inconsistencies or failure to activate the worklights when needed.

Recommendations:

  • Inspect CAN Bus Wiring and Connections: Thoroughly check all wiring and connections involved in the CAN bus system between the BCU and PC6. Look for signs of damage, wear, or looseness that might be causing communication interruptions.
  • Test CAN Bus Communication: Use diagnostic tools to assess the continuity and integrity of the communication links between the BCU and PC6. Identify 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 secure 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 rear-facing worklights are operating correctly. Verify that no further communication issues are observed.

Note:

Maintaining reliable communication between the BCU and the power module PC6 is crucial for ensuring proper operation of the vehicle’s rear-facing 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 quickly helps minimize downtime and maintain operational efficiency.
