Default LED steering wheel with Jb4 - 01-22-2022, 02:11 AM

Was wondering if anyone has or knows about installing a digital steering wheel and the Jb4. I was told that the Jb4 will not read the parameters with the steering wheel installed because the parameters are read by steering wheel. Both cannot read I guess. Is there a way to do this or does anyone currently have both that can help out. Thanks appreciate all and any help

Can't be done. The CANBus has limited bandwidth, and the JB4 uses it all. Guys have tried splitters to no avail. It just doesn't work.

My friend is looking to do this mod as well. Too bad it can't be done.

Someone on ig said he has both and the jb4 no longer shows live readings. He did said the Jb4 still works just doesn’t read parameters. I didn’t want to take the chance so went with no led. I’ll just wait till they come out with oem led steering wheel or when we can finally flash tune the ecu. Even then might still keep jb4 and do backend flash. Hopefully this is possible soon. Tired of waiting. If anyone has any updated info on that I would love to hear.

It just depends what CANbus address your wheel uses...
