Arduino + CanShield to turn on Jeep radio

Post by Galxie65 » 2016 Nov 02 23:49

Having issues trying to get an old Chrysler REN radio up and operational using an Arduino Uno + SeedStudio CAN Bus Shield.

The shield initializes and I have tried every instance of sending messages that I have been able to find without it working in the slightest. When power is connected to the harness, the radio receives power, the hard drive initializes, but no display. The buttons light up after a few seconds, the hard drive is active again for a second, then it goes black.

Any suggestions and/or information on how to get this to function? Trying to get this radio installed into a classic car for music/satellite and backup camera capabilities.
