The Canbus Function Extender adds functions to your Volvo,without making any changes to your Volvo!
CFE-LE : CFE Light Edition
The CFE-LE is based on technology and firmware tested and used with the CFE Classic.
This CFE LE is generally only interesting for Volvo drivers who require a limited amount of functions and do not want to change settings.
That group is served well by the CFE-LE.
How does the CFE LE work?
The CFE LE listens to network information (data packets) on the low-speed Canbus (the digital network in your Volvo).
This low-speed Canbus is used to communicate between the different (non-driving/safety related!) computers.
The CFE LE is able to understand the communications between the computers and respond to it as were it one of the computers in the car.
So for example; if the CFE LE understands from the communications that the key is entered in the ignition, it will instruct any available side-view mirror to unfold.
There is NO change made to your Volvo by the CFE LE.
If the CFE LE is removed (just pull it out of the OBD port) your Volvo is as original as it was before the CFE LE was connected.
The CFE can be used in any matching Volvo, and is not bound to the particular Volvo are buying bought it for now.
The LE edition is limited to the following functions:
- Lock car and windows go up, mirrors fold
- Enter key in igntition and mirrors are unfold
- Open car with remote and approach lights are lit
- Remove key from ignition and approach ligths are lit
- Read speed, rpm,fuel level, cabin-temp digitally on information panel (DIM).
- Start power heater with original keyfob
- Gaugesweep (RPM/Speed) and welcome/goodby text in DIM.

|Important need to knows|
If a required option in your Volvo is not available (for example electric foldable side mirrors), that function just won't work without jeopardizing the rest of the features.
If the CFE is removed from your Volvo, functions are removed as well.
With CFE connected, nothing changes to your car's normal behaviour.
For explenation on how functions work, please read the normal CFE user manual.
