BIF 002348.09 (BIF 2348.09)

Code: 002348.09

Shortcode: 2348.09


Error code BIF 002348.09 is reported when there is a disruption in the communication between the Power Module PC0 and the BIF control unit, specifically affecting the full beam headlights on the cab frame. This fault occurs due to intermittent or nonexistent reception of one or more CAN messages from the BIF to the Power Module PC0, which can often be traced back to issues such as loose wiring.


This communication error may lead to operational inconsistencies in the control and functionality of the full beam headlights, potentially rendering them unresponsive or erratic.


  • Inspect and Secure Wiring: Check all CAN BUS wiring connections between the BIF and Power Module PC0, ensuring they are tight and free from damage. Repair or replace any loose or damaged wires.
  • Test CAN BUS Network: Utilize diagnostic tools to examine the integrity and functionality of the CAN BUS network, especially the segments connecting the BIF to the Power Module PC0.
  • Update Firmware and Software: Verify that the latest firmware and software are installed on both the BIF and Power Module PC0. Updates may resolve known bugs affecting communication.
  • Evaluate Component Functionality: Test both the BIF and Power Module PC0 to ensure they are functioning properly and capable of sending and receiving accurate CAN messages.
  • Comprehensive System Diagnostics: Perform a full diagnostic check to identify and resolve any less apparent issues within the communication system that might be affecting data transfer.


Ensuring robust and reliable communication between the BIF and Power Module PC0 is crucial for the effective operation of the full beam headlights and other related systems. Regular checks and maintenance can prevent communication failures, thereby enhancing the reliability and safety of the equipment’s electrical systems.
