Post Using an AnalogX on a stock can-bus Ford gauges 
So I am attempting to take 4 analog inputs (oil pressure, coolant temp, RPM and road speed) and convert the analog inputs to display on a stock 2005 Ford Mustang gauge display ( using the stock smart junction box). There is no ECU.
I was able, thru a connection, to get many of the can id codes for the various gauges and idiot lights. Originally I was going to use a Arduino micro with a can shield. I hate C++ programming . I have access to both the midspeed canbus and highspeed canbus. Is it possible to do this and if so what software interface would I be using?

Hi,

Interesting project. If you are able to custom program the firmware - be it Arduino or the firmware for AnalogX, and if you have the CAN protocol needed by the gauges, then it seems reasonable that you could achieve this goal.

AnalogX's firmware is open source, so you can modify it to output the CAN data you need. We don't provide support for this - you should be knowledgeable enough with hardware and firmware development to do it.

Alternatively, an approach with an arduino might be more approachable and could be a good starting point.

Please, keep us updated on your project's progress!
