U0167 Description


This fault code is stored in a control module when communication is lost or a message corrupt. Communication protocols have strict error handling processes for data transfer. If a module or a component which has the ability to communicate on the data bus returns a negative acknowledgement an error flag will be set and the module transmitting the erroneous data may become disconnected from the network.
