General CAN fundamentals

High-Speed CAN (125 kBit/s , 500 kBit/s)

- 125 kBit/s : Interior CAN busSeries 221

- 125 kBit/s : Telematic CAN busSeries 221

- 500 kBit/s : For example:Drive train CAN bus

- 500 kBit/s : For example:Diagnostic CAN-Bus

- This CAN bus does not permit single-wire mode.

- This means that both CAN lines are always required for fault-free communication between the control units.

- This CAN bus requires external terminating resistors.

- The terminating resistors can be located in control units or voltage distributors depending on the CAN bus.

1.1.4. Possible aids and their usage

Evaluation of CAN fault codes

- The control units present in the vehicle (actual configuration) are compared with the coding in control unit CGW (specified configuration).

- Filtering and evaluation of all CAN timeout fault codes present in the vehicleThe result of the evaluation leads to the required test steps.


- Aids for voltage and resistance measurement in menu item 'Measurements with multimeter on CAN network'

Measuring system

- Aid for graphic representation of CAN signal and voltage levels

- The specified characteristics shown in Measurement Technology are used to recognize changed CAN voltage levels, which can be caused by

faulty CAN components.

- Possible procedure: Disconnect and then reconnect the CAN bus subscribers at the voltage distributor one at a time.Compare the pass image

with the actual image from the oscilloscope.
