G4+ Mazda RX8 CAN Bus

Recommended Posts

Ooh, do you happen to know which wire? That'll be the easiest way. 

Yes stock ecu still connected for now so my gauge cluster works, but I want to remove it and use the link to control the dash. I found the can protocols on here from Adam in another thread

The charge light is controlled by Virtual aux 2.  In that example map I attached earlier it is set to switch on the light if battery voltage is below 12V.

Just an update on this thread that I've learned about. The odometer doesn't count up distance covered. Apparently there’s a counter coming from the stock ECU to do the odometer, plus another message the ECU sends out to configure the ABS. The message differs depending on region though (UK, Aus, and USA are all different).

I'm trying to open the uploaded RX8 CAN example file with both PC Link G4 and G4X, and I get an unable to open error.

Do I need an ECU attached just to view how the CAN functionality of this standalone operates?
