There are different pages (tabs) in the spreadsheet, breaking down messages by category.The spreadsheet doesn't seem to do anything, and the links I tried couldn't access anything. I'll try it again from a different computer.
Yes, I understand how to do it, but it takes time I don't rally have right now. I was hoping that someone already had, so I wouldn't have to.
Thanks.There are different pages (tabs) in the spreadsheet, breaking down messages by category........
That is just ... just .... bad. Funny, though.No, they are digital. You press a button using your digit == Digital!
I have been looking at two options, although neither has some of the functionality of that one. One is really low cost, the other is a bit more expensive, but more convenient.@JohnWR
This might make things a little more economical:
Arduino CAN-BUS Shield
If you have an Arduino lying around, this should make things a little easier. There's also decent support / forum activity for Arduino + CAN out there. You'd still need to buy or build a D-SUB to OBD-2 cable. The one on Amazon I linked to earlier *should* work.
You're welcome.Thanks for the pictures. The first one is actually a pretty clean schematic. I don't see a lot of those in service manuals.
I vaguely remember seeing a little black box about the size of a flash drive plugged into the harness over by the DLC, and someone saying that was a bus terminator. But, that was a few years ago when I was swapping the dash on the '06. It could just been that last remaining FBI tracking device that I never located.
Fun (but silly) kill switch idea: add a switch under the dash or wherever that breaks one of the CAN lines. I bet the car would never start if there was a break in the bus. I'll leave it as an exercise for the reader to verify that.
I can verify that you need to jumper the wires if you remove the VCIM or the car won't start.You're welcome.
I think you are correct about the car not starting, as long as the break is between the BCM and ECM. Someone posted with problems starting their car after removing the VCIM, and had to jumper the LAN wires to get it to run.
