yes, one moment while I type

Thank you.

If there is a communication issue on the vehicle, that needs to be diagnosed and fixed first before moving forward. The root cause is the communication issue, not the security issue.

The communication issue is causing the security issue. Does that make sense?

but how can i find a short in the bus or any wiring

Based on my experience, the short is not going to be in the wiring. It is going to be in one of the modules. But you can certainly do a visual inspection of the wiring just to be sure.

To find out which module is shorted, you would disconnect one module at a time until communication resumes. When it does, that is the module that is faulty shorting out the BUS circuit.

I am glad I can help! My goal is to give you the best experience possible! I hope I have earned a 5-star rating! Please remember to rate my service by selecting the 5 stars at the top of the screen before you leave today. If you need more assistance, please use the reply box and let me know.
