Hi,

I got confused!!!.

Is CAN-BUS already install in my car?. If so, where is it?
If not, can I install it easily?

My car is Mercedes Benz 320 1995, of course, not diesel.

Regards

CAN-BUS is not a "thing" to install... Rather it is a WAY to wire a car!

Think of it as your car's LAN (in fact the "AN" part in each acronym is the same!)...

It is a way for all devices in the car to "talk" to each other, and the computer module that controls everything... In addition, it has an output port for a code reader and diagnostic readout.


See: http://canbuskit.com/what.php for example

Look in you owner's manual for where the diagnostic port is... (Usually under the dash under the steering wheel area)...

That device adapts a PC USB to communicate to the CAN via that connector...

it probably is not even listed, since it is not intended for user access
you can ask a mercedes garage for info though

Have a look at the offerings on

RuggedComputing has been around for many years, so I wouldn't worry that they're fly-by-night.
