Our ScanGauge works on 2005-2006 models. We worked with ScanGauge to make them compatible with these models that communicate over
CAN-"L" .

Here's a link for more info on our site. http://www.ipdusa.com/Products...D=629

It's a network that various control modules use to talk to one another. There's a high side and a low side. CAN L refers to the low side network.

Thanks Scott...just ordered one...... what is CAN L by the way

Up to 2004 models, Volvo used athe more common OBD-II SAE standard ( I don't recall what is is called) and then beginning in 2005 switched to the CAN path (controller area network) for OBD-II access. From what I understand it allows for a hihger sample rate of the monitored data, so adds some increased accuracy over the previously used method.
