BIF 002040.09 – DTI Lighting Communication Fault in CAN BUS System. John Deere System Advisory.

BIF 002040.09 (BIF 2040.09)

Code: 002040.09

Shortcode: 2040.09


Error code BIF 002040.09 is triggered when there is a data transmission issue between the Device and Tool Interface (DTI) and the BIF system, specifically relating to lighting control messages. This diagnostic trouble code indicates that the reception of one or more CAN messages concerning lighting information from the DTI is intermittent or completely absent, often caused by loose or faulty wiring.


This communication error may result in malfunctioning or unresponsive lighting systems, which could affect visibility and safety during operation, especially in low-light conditions.


  • Inspect and Repair Wiring: Carefully examine all connections and wiring related to the DTI and lighting systems. Tighten loose connections and replace damaged wires to ensure stable and reliable communication.
  • Check CAN BUS Network: Use diagnostic tools to analyze the CAN BUS network, focusing on identifying disruptions or errors that impact the lighting information pathways.
  • Update Firmware and Software: Ensure that the software and firmware for both the DTI and BIF are up-to-date. Software updates may fix bugs that cause miscommunication or improper message handling.
  • Test DTI System: Verify the functionality of the DTI, especially its capacity to send accurate lighting control messages. Consider repairing or replacing the DTI if it is not functioning correctly.
  • Comprehensive System Diagnostics: Perform a thorough diagnostic evaluation of the entire communication system to locate and resolve any hidden issues that could be contributing to the data transfer problems.


Regular monitoring and maintenance of the CAN BUS system and related components like the DTI are crucial for ensuring that all vehicle systems, including lighting, operate effectively and safely. Addressing communication issues promptly is key to maintaining operational efficiency and safety standards.
