The CANBus Function Extender Plus (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 (electronic module), OBD2 Configuration Cable and an USB cable. The CFE Dongle connects directly to your OBD port and the supplied cables allows for updates and changes to your CFE+. Best of all, the CFE+ Kit is 100% plug and play, requiring NO hardware splicing or other modifications (except for 2001-2004 models)!

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 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:

  • CFE+ (electronic module)
  • OBD2 Connection cable
  • USB cable (for connection between the CFE+ and your PC)
