Lexus RX (RX 350L, RX450h) 2016-2022 Repair Manual: Telematics Transceiver Disconnected (B15DB)

DESCRIPTION

If the radio receiver assembly cannot detect the DCM (telematics transceiver) for a certain period of time (90 seconds) after the engine switch is turned on (ACC) and the radio receiver assembly confirms that the information is missing by checking past DCM (telematics transceiver) recognition information (registered information), this DTC will be stored.

The telematics system uses USB communication between devices. If an open, short, short to +B or short to ground occurs in the USB circuit, communication is interrupted and the telematics system will not operate normally.

DTC No.
