Does your radio only work when your windshield wipers are turned on? Digital speedometer quit working? Smell burning? These could be signs of a malfunction with your vehicles electrical system, and on modern vehicles, this system is way more complex than just thousands of feet of wire. This system is collectively known as the Controller Area Network, or CAN, and is made up of many different wires, sensors, computers, and software that’s constantly communicating information back and forth.
The CAN is a good system that provides many of the modern capabilities that we come to expect from our vehicles. The robustness of the CAN system does make it a delicate system, though.
