Gainesville FL Automotive BMW Controller Area Network

Carrsmith Auto Repair

The Controller Area Network (CAN) integrates a vast number of BMW control units (computers) into one network. The CAN is similar to a Local Area Network (LAN), which you may be familiar with if you use computers linked together, for example in an business office environment. The use of CAN technology has reduced the number of wires needed for modules to communicate, eliminating the need for up to 600 lbs of copper in the manufacture of modern vehicles. The BMW CAN network can often reduce the time needed to perform diagnostics when using the BMW Integrated Service Technical Application (ISTA) factory scan tool.
