My name is ***** ***** I am a professional here at Just Answer. I noticed that your question was not getting a response and thought I would see if you still need help with this.I apologize for the delay and I hope I can still assist you with this here.
My info is limited on your model here but I see no one else has responded and thought I would see if I can help here.
With a no can signal from the CDI unit itself check and make sure all fuses are good in all fuse panels.If a fuse is found blown this can cause the can communication fault.If no fuses are found to be at fault this may be an issue with the CDI control unit itself.I have seen some of these fail before and cause other can communication faults and had to replace it.
This will need to be tested further which may require some special test equipment to be sure this is the cause.
Thanks Pete
