I'm learning to use this tool Kvaser Leaf Light V2 with CAN-BUS. I'm stuck with some problems. I can read the packets around the CAN-BUS line from the car, I can save it in a text file, but when I want to resend this on my "Own CAN-BUS" that's connected to my instrument cluster, the instrument cluster doesnt do anything (it just turns on the digital clock)... is there any "Ignition" or "Turn on" packet that I'm missing?
Info: Car: Fiat Stilo 1.8 petrol Baud rate: 50k
Info about how I'm using CANKing:
1st way, "Custom messaging" on my own CANBUS Trunk:
I click on Messages>Universal>Universal and I write my message in the field:
For example I want to manipulate RPMs I send
7E8 | 0x04 | 0x41 | 0x0C | 0x0D | 0x50 | 0x00 | 0x00 | 0x00
(What's supposed to be what car sends to nodes informating about RPM) But Instrument cluster doesnt do anything and I get Error frame message.
2nd Way, Logged file messages: Well, I dont know if it should be working, but I tried also with no success; I sniffed data from the car (Fiat Stilo 1.8i) and logged to a file, with some variants (Turn on ignition, turn off, accelerating, etc. All while recording it)
Once I recorded, I did use: View>History List>Load..[I load here my recorded file]>Send All
I think this should simulate the car system and the Instrument cluster should replicate what I was seeing in the car or I'm wrong?
Update 1.1(17/01/2015): I will change resistances also, I misunderstanded the concept, I will get 120Ohm ones and feedback with it, someone that's helping me, told me that I'm missing Ground Kvaser to Ground Inst. Cluster.
**Update 2.0 (18/01/2015): I changed resistances to 120Ohm, wired Kvaser GND to Instrument tool GND, and I managed to light up my Speedometer with the RPM gauge (Fault was that speedometer box got more than one 12V+ in, as it has different modules). But I can't manage to work it. I want to control RPM and Speedometer gauges, but when i send any message, i get like 700~ error frame messages... the same when I start sending text file with all the traffic I recorded...
Anyone know where can I find FIAT CAN DB or can point me in right direction? Thanks.
