B1667 Code failures by brands
B1667 ACURA, HONDA: REAR SHELF LF ANTENNA CIRCUIT SHORT CIRCUIT
Description of DTC code B1667
The remote control has a keyless transmitter, and the remote control locks and unlocks the doors with the use of an operation that can be performed even from a remote distance from the automobile. When a remote lock button or remote unlock button is pressed, the keyless transmitter sends a signal from the corresponding switch to the keyless access control unit. After receiving authentication at the keyless access control unit, the door lock signals are sent to the MICU via the B-CAN.
The low frequency (LF) antennas of the front interior, the middle interior, and the rear interior are responsible for providing the proper signals to the remote control of the vehicle interior. The outside driver's door handle, outside front passenger's door handle, and rear bumper LF antennas, provides signals to the vehicle's exterior remote control.
