|Code U1517 Description

The Local Interconnect Network (LIN) Bus consists of a single wire with a transmission rate of 10.417 Kbit/s. The serial data is transmitted over a LIN circuit between a master control module and other LIN devices within a particular subsystem. If serial data communication is lost between any of the LIN devices on the LIN bus network, the master control module will set a no communication code against the non-communicating LIN device. The Diagnostic Trouble Code (DTC) will set when a supervised periodic message to the Body Control Module (BCM) from the Sunroof Sunshade Motor Module has not been received.
