Lem G3 CAN output

Recommended Posts

Hi,

 

I have an old G3 ECU, and as far as I can tell there's a CAN connector on the ECU. 

Can this be used to connect to a dash? And if so, what type of CAN protocol do I select in the dash config?

 

Thanks in advance!

Best regards,

Sebastian

Oh, and I should mention that I have an AIM Strada Dash, and when configuring it, I can select the link G3 ecu.

The G3 needs a small hardware mod and a firmware upgrade to enable the CAN bus, I believe the hardware modification is a free service if you return it to Link.  Otherwise if you are capable of basic SMT soldering you can contact Link tech support and they will give you instructions to enable you to do it yourself.

It will also need the firmware upgrade to G4, this upgrade has a cost as you need to purchase an upgrade code.  It was about NZD$230 last I heard.  It is quite a nice upgrade though, it gives you quite a bit more functionality over the G3 firmware.  Closed loop boost, onboard data logging.  Much better G4 tuning software.  Quick tune, many more configurable options for inputs/outputs and 2D/3D tables.

Thanks for the reply! 

I may considering upgrading, but since the ecu is so old I’m more leaning towards getting a new one. 

To get the dash working, maybe I can use the rs232 protocol instead?
