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).

Here's an update on some info I've found from a guy who is doing an EV conversion.

he has done a lot of decoding to get his project working. 

His Youtube channel if full of useful info.

He's using Arduino but hopefully we can use his info with our ECU's.

here's some links to his stuff.
