- all you need to enable this thing to properly charge is to emulate the signals from the VCM. This is 90% CAN bus and a few direct signals.
I can provide a CAN trace of a charging session if you like
Thanks Mux for your message, this has confirmed what I have been thinking, some of your tips I have implemented already and the others I will include in the build presently underway.
I am also glad to hear your comments on the strange messages, there is certainly no record of these in the info out there. These messages do not reoccur on the working leaf. I am using a dataview logic analyzer with CAN protocol decode on their Digivew D9 software. It may be as you said a result of no other module connections to provide answers. I would appreciate it if you could send me or create a link to your traces of a charge session. This would help a lot.
I would like to get one of your man in the middle devices, as I am sure you can appreciate this would also help enormously. I have messaged you elsewhere. Send me a message with details I and I can send your an etransfer by return. I checked your tindie store a couple of times.
I spent all of today hooking up the modules to re-establish the communication links and system requirements.
I hope to finish the by the end of the week and I hope to get some good data as a result. The man in the middle will be one of the next steps to get a working system.
Thanks again for your message, after a day in the shop connecting wires, it really made my day.
