BIF 002000.09 – Coolant Temperature Sensor Communication Fault. John Deere System Advisory.

BIF 002000.09 (BIF 2000.09)

Code: 002000.09

Shortcode: 2000.09


This error code, BIF 002000.09, occurs when there is a data transfer problem between the Engine Control Unit (ECU) and the BIF system, specifically concerning the coolant temperature sensor’s CAN BUS message. The code is set when the reception of this message is intermittent or completely absent, which may be caused by issues such as loose wiring or faults within the CAN BUS network.


Due to this communication fault, the system’s response may include incorrect coolant temperature readings, which can lead to inappropriate engine management decisions, potentially affecting engine performance and safety.


  • Inspect and Secure Wiring: Examine the wiring associated with the coolant temperature sensor and the CAN BUS for looseness or damage. Secure any loose connections and replace damaged wires.
  • Check Sensor and Connectors: Ensure that the coolant temperature sensor and its connectors are in good condition. Replace the sensor or connectors if faults are found.
  • Update System Software: Confirm that the ECU and other related software are up-to-date. Software glitches that affect data interpretation and transmission may need correction through updates.
  • Test CAN BUS System: Use diagnostic tools to test the integrity and functionality of the CAN BUS system, focusing on components that handle coolant temperature data.
  • Evaluate ECU Performance: Conduct diagnostics to check the ECU’s performance to ensure it is processing and transmitting sensor data correctly.


Maintaining accurate and reliable communication between the ECU and BIF system is critical for proper engine management. Regular checks of the sensor systems and CAN BUS network can help prevent miscommunications that could lead to engine inefficiency or damage.
