PTF 000190.09 – CAN Bus Message Cannot be Received, Information from ECU Control Software

PTF 000190.09 (PTF 190.09)

Code: 000190.09

Shortcode: 190.09


This error code is generated when a data transfer problem occurs between the PTF control software and the ECU control software. The reception of one or more CAN messages expected by the PTF control software is intermittent or non-existent, which may be due to issues such as a loose wire. This indicates a problem in the CAN bus or the transmitting control software. Engine stalling can also cause this diagnostic trouble code.


When this code is detected, the control software may exhibit limited or no functionality.


  • Inspect CAN Bus Connections:
    • Check all CAN bus connections for secure and correct installation.
    • Look for any damaged or corroded connectors and replace if necessary.
  • Verify Wiring Integrity:
    • Ensure all wires in the CAN bus network are intact and free of damage.
    • Repair or replace any loose or damaged wires.
  • Check ECU Software:
    • Ensure that the ECU control software is up to date.
    • Update the software if necessary.
  • Monitor Engine Performance:
    • Check for issues that might cause the engine to stall.
    • Address any mechanical or fuel delivery problems that could lead to engine stalling.


Maintaining a reliable CAN bus communication and preventing engine stalling are essential for the proper operation of the control software. Regular inspections and maintenance can help avoid these issues.
