Post BMW E46 330ci not displaying CAN data 
Noob question, I've done a lot of reading on this but can't seem to make any headway.

Car is being built as Spec E46.

Wires are tapped using the Autosport E46 integration cable
https://www.autosportlabs.com/product/bmw-e46-integration-cable/

in the OBD-II port power per the wiki instructions:
https://wiki.autosportlabs.com/BMW_E46_CAN

Only data showing are location (long/lat) and battery.
The E46 presets are downloaded.
CAN BUS Rate is 500kb/s

Suggestions on how to fix what I'm doing wrong?

When I first installed mine I tapped what appeared to be the CAN wires above the dead pedal as shown in the instructions and didn't have any luck getting data. I think there are 2 pairs of twisted wires in there. I found it easier to tap the CAN wires on the steering angle sensor, works great.

dlaud,

Did moving the wires allow you to see data?

@rkymthiker - thank you for this idea, I'll be attempting this soon.
@brentp - I haven't tried tapping the CAN wires by the steering angle sensor yet, once I do, I'll update this post.
