Controller Area Networks (CAN)

Hi all,

Anyone have the schematics or know how I can get the Controller Area Networks (CAN) for our stangs? Preferably for a v6 2013 MT? I'm not sure if Ford hands this information out. It is a .dbc file


High Speed Controller Area Network (HS-CAN) 500kbs
Medium Speed Controller Area Network (MS-CAN) 125kbs

Any help is much appreciated. Thanks!

I know how to access both networks, but Ford does not give out their information on these networks (for Ford proprietary CAN information). You either have to watch for the information to come by and do statistical analysis on it or get lucky. What are you looking to do?

Thanks for the reply.
Was toying around with the idea of activating a device like an external lamp or speaker system to the startup sequence when I unlock the car.
How would I be able to watch for this information? what are the tools/equipment that I would need? Some direction would be helpful.

IF you check the forum stickies under the v6 technical thread there is one called workshop manual, its an online PDF of the entire manual for out model and year car. you can find that information there under the electrical section I believe.

https://www.allfordmustangs.com/forum...ce-manual.html

More directly found here ==> Ford Service Manuals - Workshop Manuals

I used the info there to wire up my remote start for my subwoofer off one of the SJB so it would not power on while the car was starting, and it would only power on when the engine was running. This is to ensure the engine has the most cranking force from the battery on startup, as the AMP sucks a lot of power.

You can probably do this btw (the external lamp anyway) by piping directly into the same circuit that the dome lights or factory illuminated rockers were wired for that.

Why would you want speakers enabled when car is unlocked?
