Range Rover Evoque: Communications Network - Overview, System Operation and Component Description


A number of different types of communication networks are incorporated into the vehicle wiring harnesses for the transmission of commands and information between control modules. The configuration installed on a particular vehicle depends on the model and equipment level.

The communication networks available on the vehicle are:

System Operation

Principles of operation

Refer to: Communications Network (418-00 Module Communications Network, Description and Operation). and to Component Description below.

Component Description


The LIN bus is a low speed broadcast network that employs master and slave components. The master component transmits a message along a single wire to the slave components identifying which slave is to respond. The message has a header (slave identifier) and an empty data field. The identified slave component fills the data field with the relevant information and returns a message to the master component along the same wire.


The CAN bus is a high speed broadcast network where control modules automatically transmit information every few microseconds. Information is broadcast down a pair of twisted wires, known as 'CAN high' and 'CAN low'. Information is transmitted on the CAN bus as a voltage difference between the 2 wires.

Two CAN bus networks are used on the vehicle; medium speed and high speed, with the CJB acting as a gateway between the 2 networks. The table below shows the wire colors used on both networks.

Range Rover Evoque. Module Communications Network


The Media Orientated System Transport (MOST) ring uses fiber optic cables to transport data and audio signals around the information and entertainment system. The fiber optic cables are arranged in a ring, with each unit on the ring having a 'MOST in' and 'MOST out' connection.

The MOST ring is a synchronous network. A timing master supplies the clock and all other components on the ring synchronize their operation to this clock. The timing master for the MOST ring is the integrated control module.

When handling MOST fiber optic cables the following precautions should be observed:

Ring Break Diagnostics

Incorporated into the CJB is a Ring Break Diagnostics (RBD) link. The RBD link houses a copper link which when removed initiates the ring break diagnostics mode. The ring break diagnostics mode allows the technician to locate an optical fiber break in the MOST ring. To initiate the ring break diagnostics mode, carry out the following process:

After approximately 30 seconds a DTC (diagnostic trouble code) will be logged in the Integrated Control Module, identifying the location of the fault. The DTC can be read and interrogated using the Land Rover approved diagnostic system.
