Building a Car Hacking Development Workbench: Part 3

Welcome back to the car hacking development workbench series. In part two we discussed how to read wiring diagrams. In part three, we are going to expand on the workbench by re-engineering circuits and replicate signals used in your vehicle. If this is your first time stumbling across this write up, I encourage you to check out the previous two parts to this series: Part 1: Constructing a Workbench [/2017/07/11/building-a-car-hacking-development-workbench-part-1] Part 2: How to Read Wiring Di

Building a Car Hacking Development Workbench: Part 2

This is part two of a three-part series. Part one [/2017/07/11/building-a-car-hacking-development-workbench-part-1] covered how to build a development workbench. Part two of this series will cover reading electrical diagrams and serve as a primer for part three, where we will re-engineer common circuit types found in vehicles. Electrical Diagrams & Re-identification Technically, your bench is complete at this point, and you can connect an OBD-II to USB conversion device to start interpreting
