Toyota Tundra Service Manual: System Description

SYSTEM DESCRIPTION

1. BRIEF DESCRIPTION

(a) The Controller Area Network (CAN) is a serial data communication system for real time application. It is a vehicle multiplex communication system which has a high communication speed and the ability to detect malfunctions.

(b) Using the CANH and CANL bus lines as a pair, CAN communication is performed using a voltage differential. (A base voltage is applied to the pair of lines and a voltage differential is created when communicating.)

(c) Many ECUs or sensors installed to the vehicle operate by sharing information and communicating with each other.

(d) 2 resistors which are necessary for communication are used in a CAN bus main line.

2. DEFINITION OF TERMS

(a) Central bus

(1) The central bus is a generic name for multiple subordinate CAN bus lines on the central gateway ECU (network gateway ECU).

HINT:

A bus is displayed as Bus on the "Communication Bus Check" screen of the Techstream.

(b) Sub bus

(1) A sub bus is a bus that has a gateway function equipped ECU in order to communicate with the central bus and other sub buses.

HINT:

  • A sub bus is displayed as Sub bus on the "Communication Bus Check" screen of the Techstream.
  • When Sub bus is selected on the "Communication Bus Check" screen, ECUs and sensors connected to non-CAN networks such as LIN may also be displayed in addition to the ECUs and sensors connected to sub buses in the CAN network.

(c) Local bus

(1) A local bus is a bus that does not have the ability to communicate with other buses. ECUs and sensors on a local bus can only communicate with other ECUs and sensors on the same bus.

NOTICE:

Gateway function not equipped ECU is a generic name for ECUs not connected to the central gateway ECU (network gateway ECU) with a gateway function.

(d) CAN J/C

(1) A CAN junction connector is a connector that connects branch lines to a main bus.

(e) Main bus

(1) A main bus line is the wire harness that runs between the 2 terminating resistors of a bus.

(f) Branch

(1) A branch line is a wire harness that connects an ECU or sensor to a main bus line.

(g) Terminating resistors

(1) Terminating resistors which maintain a stable signal inside the CAN bus are installed. 2 resistors of 120 Ω each located at each end of the bus are necessary.

  • except Diagnosis Bus:

    2 resistors of 120 Ω each located at each end of the bus are necessary.

  • for Diagnosis Bus:

    1 resistor of 60 Ω located at end of the bus are necessary.

    DESCRIPTION This circuit sends an operation signal from the steering pad switch assembly to the navigation receiver assembly. If there is an open in the circuit, the audio system cannot be operated using the steering pad switch assembly. If there is a short in the circuit, the same condition as when ...
