abort CAN trans

I am using a 9S12XEQ384 and a 9s12DG256 with the same code for CAN initialisation at 500K baud and processing interrupts.  Both processors do the same as far as CAN retry.


The problem I want to solve is that sometimes I can upset the bus and it will retry a transmission about 150us after the last failure to send.  This never gives the bus any chance to send any other messages.  It never goes buss off.  From what I understand it should leave the bus alone for around 2.8ms.


I am trying to abort the CAN messages I have pending, but I don't think my processor should take over the bus.

Is there something in my initialisation that may cause this.  Is there an auto off bus recovery I am missing?


I can see the transmit and receive error counters go up to about 130 to 135 when the above happens.   Should it not get to 254 and go bus off?
