Topic: CANbus connection on Mercedes Actros MP2/3
I hope this topic is in the right sub-forum.
Does anyone here have experience with CANbus/FMS/OBD connection on trucks?
Specifically, I am having difficulty getting data fom Mercedes Actros MP3 and MP2, with Ruptela FM-Pro4.
When connecting the device to CAN wires (tried on Z3 connector and X5), no data gets through. In raw messages you can see parameters with zero values. Tried multiple configurations and using CAN adapters. Nothing helps. Seems to me additional knowledge is required regarding this technology, but a lot of people in the GPS tracking business don't really know much, I guess because CANbus is not always reliable in terms of accuracy of data, kind of a gray area.
I would love to hear your opinions on this.
Thanks in advance! Cheers
