Toyota 4Runner: Short in GPS Antenna (B15C0,B15C1)

DESCRIPTION

This DTC is stored when the DCM (Telematics Transceiver) detects an open or a short in the telephone and GPS antenna circuit. The DCM (Telematics Transceiver) receives signals at a radio frequency of between 1574.42 and 1576.42 MHz through the telephone and GPS antenna. The cable is a 50 Ω coaxial cable.
