Just as promised a few days ago: Here's the new version of the test sketch.

It contains more CAN BUS functions (such as much more LEDs to switch on or off) and is completely rewritten for a better structure and easier usage.

These are the LEDs you can manually turn on or off in the sketch

There's also a new section where you can setup a userdefined setup for testing your dashboard's functions!

You find the new sketch in the download section of this project,

or directly here.

Best regards, and a happy new year!

I currently have this setup on my Mk5 Dashboard I got from a junker. I got rpm and speed working but I have an immobilizer active on my center screen with break and the immobilzer lights flashing. Do you know how I could fix this?

thanks for your inquiry. I'm not sure about the Mk5, but try to send these commands. Those stopped all my warning lights on the 6R Dash.

    CanSend(0x3D0, 0, 0x80, 0, 0, 0, 0, 0, 0);
    //Engine on and ESP enabled
    CanSend(0xDA0, 0x01, 0x80, 0x00, 0x00, 0x00, 0x00, 0x00, 0x00);
    CanSend(0x1A0, 0x18, speedL, speedH, 0x00, 0xfe, 0xfe, 0x00, 0xff);
    CanSend(0x050, 0x00, 0x80, 0x00, 0x00, 0x00, 0x00, 0x00, 0x00);

  Are you sure? yes | no

I'm already sending those ideas I just have the flashing car with a key and brake lights flashing in addtion to the immobilizer active on the center screen. Do you remeber how you found that immobilier CAN ID? it may differ on the mkv platform.
