So I do a lot of work on CAN Bus integration from GM to Jeep vehicle platforms. Manly we take GM LS V8 engines and put them into newer jeep wranglers and integrate all the computer so they all work together thru the CAN BUS.

It got me thinking about the Talon. I noticed on the data connector under the seat that there was a twisted pair of wires. Im willing to bet that most of the systems in the Talon are "CAN" based and communicate thru this network.

Im going to hook up and see what data I can pull from the system and start a database on what functions I may find. If this works out them we may be able to design modules that will work on the bus to either input functions or output functions.

My first application would be a Stop Lamp - Reverse Lamp output. I would take the CAN based message and use a module to output a signal for a external stop lamp or reverse lamp. This would make adding options very easy and you wouldn't have to hack into the harness and try to find the feeds. it would also isolate any aftermarket items from the factory harness and fuse box.

Lets start throwing up some ideas together and see what can be done. if there is something you would like to see applied please comment below.

First step:

Figure out the Baudrate of the Honda CAN Bus system. could be anything from 10k to 1000k

Have you had time to look into this yet or, made any progress? Perhaps a feature to override ABS system when mudding to save on brake component wear? Interesting idea either way! I like the thought of reverse light addons and all too!

I did find that you can't connect to the can bus thru the diag port. I think I can access it in another spot but haven't had time to mess with it.

I too am wondering if you've had any luck with this. I'd love to integrate an AiM digital display but haven't ben able to find out how to make the connection yet. I see one race team doing it, but no idea if they run their own engine management system or what they are doing. I have an oscilloscope I may be able to use to help determine baud rate if that is still a hurdle.
