I'm looking for the specification of the CAN-BUS signals for the Ford Transit connect 2013. Does anyone know who might have done this reverse engineering already?

Specifically, I'm looking for signals related to fuel consumption for this car.


  • I'm not an expert on Transits, but I suspect you'll need a bit more information than that - what age of Transit for a start? I suspect they are proprietary, but you've presumably worked that out already as you mention reverse engineering...

  • @NickC I asume they are proprietary, didn't find anything on the net about that. I edited the question regarding year of the car. thanks

    On my Ford Fiesta MK6 I sinfed some data from bus: sergeyk.kiev.ua/avto/ford_CAN_bus , but I have not full information about description of Ford CAN ID messages :( OpenXC - is "black box", which convert CAN messages to a other simple format (which have open informations). I search fuel information on CAN-bus, but still not have simple solution.

You can petition Ford to release it, as they have for the Focus, Escape, and some other cars with their OpenXC SDK

Alternatively, you can try to hack the OpenXC to work with it. I imagine the protocols are there, just slightly different.
