Sorry for the delay. I got called out on the road. My sincere apologies.

fault 285 can occur for the following reasons:

  • When the ECM is set up properly (components enabled and OEM VECU source addressed correctly) to receive information from an OEM VECU, but the OEM VECU is actually transmitting a message that says that component is not available for multiplexing. This can be caused when a multiplexed component is enabled in the Cummins® ECM, but the OEM VECU source address of the VECU transmitting the component message is incorrect in the Cummins ECM, or the OEM VECU is not set up to transmit the multiplexed component message.
  • This fault can also be caused by a malfunctioning J1939 data link connection between the OEM VECU and CumminsECM, a malfunctioning connection between the component and the OEM VECU, malfunctioning OEM VECU or malfunctioning Cummins® ECM.

CODEREASONEFFECT

Fault Code: 285
PID: S231
SPN: 639
FMI: 9
LAMP: Amber
SRT:

SAE J1939 Multiplexing PGN Timeout Error - Abnormal Update Rate. The Cummins® ECM did not receive a multiplexed message from an OEM VECU or SIM within the time limit or did not receive it at all.

One or more multiplexed devices will not operate properly. One or more symptoms will occur.

Where it gets complicated is you have both Cummins software and Volvo software between the modules that have to properly communicate with each other... So this fault can be a programming issue on either side, wiring issue, etc. Reprogramming of both modules and inspection of the wiring harness and voltage and ground checks are needed.
