I have just purchased a dlc breakout box, just wondering if anyone has some good links for how to use them correctly. Leaflet that came with it was abit poor. Thanks

Just remember not all vehicle have their DLC’s connected into the network, a lot will go into a gateway module 👍🏻
Just watched a good video from scannerdanner where they first used a breakout dlc box and got stumped on not having a can signal at the dlc. Good to see them get there heads around the wiring diag and find that the dlc isn't connected into the network.

Also see the video of Automotive Test Solutions - Bernie Thompson - about CAN-bus of a Mercedes 230. From 9 minutes 54 sec. he gives a valuable warning (more or less - but then in other words - like scannerdanner in the tread of Sam6). See

And don't forget to utilize the easy access power and ground for your test light etc. God send on some cars when working on doors etc.
Good call Kris!.. I wonder if we could power up using the breakout box on a Batt replacement?.
