Hi.
I gonna build electric Lada 2106.:D

I already have the car, remy hvh250-90s motor and kolektor 100kw controller.

Controller have a CAN-bus and BMS (orion 2) and charger (elcon) have too.
Gonna buy those bms and charger after i get the battery (Leaf 24kwh or 30kwh)

My question is how to mate those to understand each others? (plus screen on dash)? i bet this is not just plug and play...

...or, is it anyway possible to get Leaf BMS and charger working easily and will it need other parts from donor? There is also (probably) CAN-bus...
Leaf bms and charger would be bit cheaper but not too much so not too much fuss about to get those working...

I'm gonna post lot's more questions at the future of this project.

From what I've read, all of the Leaf CAN bus protocol has been decoded, but I'm not aware of any software that can control any of the components (charger, BMS, DC-DC converter, HVAC). I'm also unable to find a single comprehensive location with all the information.

Here is a dead thread that began the work of decoding:

My (useless) thread:

Here are some programmable hardware boards that interface well with CAN bus (they're all based on the Arduino):

My plan is to buy an aftermarket charger, BMS, and controller, but I might spend some time trying to figure out the CAN stuff if I can find the info I need.
