Product Description

What is the CFE Kit?

The CANBus Function Extender Kit (CFE) allows you to enhance the functionality and driving pleasure of your "older" model Volvo by activating additional functions currently available on the newer Volvo models!


How Does it Work?

Your Volvo communicates with a lot of electronic units located throughout the car using a digital network, called the CANBus network (for example, the window switches instruct the window motors to open/close through the CANBus network, etc.) Using the CFE Kit, you'll get a CFE unit (Hardware) and connection cable (Cable) that will connect the CFE unit to your Volvo's CANBus network, so that you can modify functions built into the CANBus network. Best of all, the CFE Kit is 100% plug and play, requiring NO hardware splicing or other modifications!

To select the CANBus network functions you'd like to activate in your Volvo, you must first download and install software on your PC (see the Troubleshooting & Support section below) and connect the CFE unit to your PC using the provided USB computer cable. The PC software will allow you to select and configure different functions that will be added to your Volvo using the CFE unit. Once the CFE unit is connected to the car, the newly configured functions are all available in your Volvo!


Kit Contents:

  • One CFE Hardware Unit
  • Choice of one CANBus Connection Cable:
    • OBD-2 Cable: Select this cable if you want the easiest installation. Connects to the OBD-2 port in driver's side footwell area. Installation of this cable takes about 5 minutes, but is only compatible with MY2005 and newer cars.
    • AEM Cable (Accessories Electronic Module): Select this cable if you have an AEM unit in the trunk of your Volvo. Installation of this cable takes about 10 minutes.
    • RTI/Navigation Cable: Select this cable if you have a DVD RTI/Navigation unit in your Volvo and there's no AEM cable found in your Volvo. Installation of this cable takes about 15 minutes.
    • HU Cable (Radio Headunit): Select this cable if you have no AEM cable or RTI/Navigation unit in your Volvo. Installation of this cable takes about 30 minutes, and is the most difficult to install of the 4 cable options.
  • One USB Computer Cable
