It's a bit tricky as to which forum, I should post this thread on...
This forum, because my query pertains to a CAN audio system from a Signum, or one of the Cavalier Mk3 sites, as that is the model of car that the radio is fitted to.
I have noticed a few CAN experts popping up recently, so this is aimed at those guys.
I am running a vehicle without any CAN system, however I have fitted a full CAN infotainment system to it.
To achieve this, I have had to utilise a CIM module for ignition logic control and pop-up messages on my GID.
I also use a BCM to control functions and ambient temperature read-out.
I have a CD70 with sat nav and full audio functions.
Although BC is enabled, it does not work.
This is because I have no method of converting the analogue fuel computer values of my car to CAN format that my GID can understand.
I am guessing that I would need analogue inputs as follows: -
ABS pulse for road speed
Fuel flow rate / Injection periode
Fuel tank level
This is done via the main engine ECU in the Vectra / Signum, but I don't have much more space behind my glove box to fit in another module, which probably wouldn't work anyway.
Are there any experts who can advise on a method of doing this
I have seen items like CANverter by Ita (I think) and also F W Murphy do some interfaces, but not quite the configuration that I want.
Most CAN converter hardware, is to convert CAN to analogue, for driving after market radios etc.
Obviously I want to go the other way...
Any suggestions apart from..
can't be done, or I'll take your radio off your hands for you.
Had I known previously, what I know now, then I would have fitted an NCDC 2013 from an Omega-B.
Over to you guys!! (and gals)
