Did I just kill my laptop and ecu?

Recommended Posts

I think I accidentally connected My USB cable to the CanPCB cable. Laptop went black and won't start. Can't test ECU since I don't have a spare laptop.

Can (pun not intended) this happen by doing this or did I make some other wiring mistake?

Thanks,

David

CAN 2 port on many of the plug-ins has a 12V output on the CAN port to power a dashboard etc.  So if you connected the laptop to CAN2 you could definitely have damaged the laptop.  It wouldnt expect it to hurt the ECU though, if the ecu doesnt power up it may have just blown the main fuse.

Thanks, that was what I was looking for. The laptop I can get repaired or replaced. Fingers crossed and remember to learn from my mistakes...
