I doubt it's smart enough to even be aware of the VIN, but where did you order it and how much did it cost? I've been wanting to mod mine as well. Right now it's simply disabled.Hey Everybody!
I was able to acquire an extra pedestrian sound module so I can mod it to make a better sound. I was wondering, is this module tied to a specific VIN or can I plug it right in in place of my current unmodified one?
Bahaha.Jetson's car better be on your short list
I spent forever trying to figure out how to use that, because the MY16 manual says you can activate a pedestrian alert beep by flashing the high-beams. It's not a feature that exists on the car; they made it up for the manual, apparently.PrivatePilot, enjoy your ped horn, That is the thing I mist most on my '17.
Maybe it would better to use the existing amplifier? (if the bandpass is usable, but it's noise, so maybe it is broad band enough to play the jetson's or other sound)I'd love to get one of those to play with. I would probably gut it except for the connecter and put a Raspberry Pi in there to gather data on what the pins are for. ...
close, mine was number 160928Cool idea! Just looked through the junk car listings for another one, I think this is your donor car: https://wsimgproky.car-part.com/1754/2016/160941/F36FC94928FD4EB285C76B67386A36F1003_web.jpg
Huh, the listing links to another listing:found it on ebay, it was salvage from one of the IIHS test cars. it was $42 + 15 shipping.
Nice pinout! I would guess that one serial channel is probably for the artificial noise and one channel is for the charging chime. 8/9 must go to the speaker itself. I'd have to plug a Pi in to see what sort of data is transmitted still, but that helps a lot!That must be the one. I have just plugged the "new" module in and it seems to work.
Here is the pinout:
1 High Speed GMLAN Serial Data (*-)
2 High Speed GMLAN Serial Data (+)
4 Serial Data Communication Enable
5 Not occupied
6 High Speed GMLAN Serial Data (*-)
7 High Speed GMLAN Serial Data (+)
8 Pedestrian Friendly Alert Speaker Control (*-)
9 Pedestrian Friendly Alert Speaker Control (+)
10 Battery Positive Voltage
Interesting...I suppose maybe the module communicates with more than one other module, and they did it the lazy way and just had one LAN bus with two parallel connections...The GMLAN looks like a ring topology. 1 and 6 are connected and so are 2 and 7
