The Canbus Function Extender adds functions to your Volvo without making permanent changes to the Volvo!
Hooked up to the OBD connector in your Volvo it works immediately, adding functions like: automatic window up, folding mirrors automatically, starting power heater with original remote, showing engine temp, battery voltage, inner temp on information display...
...making your 'older' Volvo 2016 ready!
The CFE is shipped with basic settings, which settings you can change (enable or disable / change the behaviour) with the free software available in the downloads section of the website.

What functions will work in my car?
Download the configuration application from the downloads section of our website, enter the VIN (=chassic number) of your car and see what functions are available for the Volvo belonging to the modelyear/age filtered from the VIN number you entered.
Please read the functions manual to understand how functions work and what depencies might be.
(For example : remote start of a power heater won't suddenly work with the CFE in case there's no programmable power heater in the car!)
How does the CFE work?
The CFE listens to network information (data packets) on the low-speed Canbus (the digital network in your Volvo).
This low-speed Canbus is used to communicate between the different (non-driving/safety related!) computers.
The CFE is able to understand the communications between the computers and respond to it as were it one of the computers in the car.
So for example; if the CFE understands from the communications that the key is entered in the ignition, it will instruct any available side-view mirror to unfold.
There is NO change made to your Volvo by the CFE.
If the CFE is removed (just pull it out of the OBD port) your Volvo is as original as it was before the CFE was connected.
The CFE can be used in any matching Volvo, and is not bound to the particular Volvo are buying bought it for now.
I see different CFE's on your website, what are the differences?
Unless you buy a LE (Lite Edition), all CFE's are the same. Technically, physically and functions, no difference.
The only difference is the way the CFE is hooked up in your Volvo.
Some people don't like the CFE to be connected to the OBD port (or use other equipment hooked up to that port) and want the CFE to be connected elsewhere in the Volvo.
No problem, it works the same, it offers the same functions, just a different place to connect the CFE.
If your Volvo is from before modelyear 2005, a hookup to the OBD port is technically not possilbe.
(before 2005 the OBD port is not active in certain situations).
A Lite Edition offers less functions and is limited to those functions because it can not be updated/upgraded.
