I am new to Arduino and I am looking for some help with my current project. I have an arduino uno, the spark fun can bus shield (https://www.sparkfun.com/products/10039
) and a Motec M400 ECU powering a car. The ECU has a built in CAN bus which I would like to use to read messages from the ECU with the arduino and display them on an LCD display. I would like to display certain parameters such as speed, rpm, etc on the LCD readout. How should I go about doing this?
I have wired the CAN Bus of the ECU to the the can bus shield and I have connected the shield to my arduino but I don't have any code to test the setup.
I am going to need some code that will read the CAN messages from the ECU and then some code to display these messages on the LCD.
Where should I start, is there a sketch I could use to start reading CAN messages from my ECU?
Thanks for the help.
Let me know if you need any more information.
