Mr.RC-Cam posted a topic in Ford Mustang Instrument ClusterThis forum area contains the technical details to the CAN2Cluster (2009 Ford Mustang) Instrument Cluster Project. This is also the official area to discuss the project. Do not email or private message the author for technical help! Join the forum and post your technical questions and project comments here. For build photos please review the blog: Click Here! Important fine print: This is NOT a beginner project. The builder should have previous experience with Arduino hardware and its IDE (or an equivalent compiler tool set). Also required is prior experience with electronic construction techniques. The wiring details are limited to what is provided in the schematics. All electronic parts can be found on eBay and Aliexpress.

Mr.RC-Cam replied to Mr.RC-Cam's topic in Ford Mustang Instrument ClusterHere are the demo videos. PART 1: PART 2: Technical Details are posted here: https://goo.gl/xf6mZ3. Epilogue: Believe it or not, the CAN2Cluster project has been a distraction from the original mission. That is to say, I still haven't replaced the bad dashboard bulb in my car. So pardon me while I get out some tools and get my hands dirty.
Mr.RC-Cam replied to Mr.RC-Cam's topic in Ford Mustang Instrument ClusterIt was a productive weekend; The software is done and everything works. Except for that frustrating odometer data error problem I reported last month. It has me stumped. Time to reflect. Six weeks ago I was a wet behind the ears CAN-Bus wanna-bee developer. I still have a lot to learn but now I know something about the inner workings of a modern instrument cluster. And I'm having a blast driving my new faux ride in the office. Zero to sixty in six seconds, all from my office chair. It's no exaggeration to say that this interactive bookcase display will entertain any car obsessed mechanic (and ex-grease monkeys too). Here's some photos of the finished display. I'll post videos soon. So feel free to come back and see it in action.
