Dash Emulator for testing MFT (Multi Flash Tune) on the bench


Recommended Posts

For our internal QA we have built a simple canbus dash emulator. As the Mk2 FG uses a canbus dash this means we can emulate the cruise control buttons via canbus to do an end to end test of the multi tune system.

This program doesn't use any of our source code and instead uses an open source J2534 library 


We are also using a free version of the Arction WPF Gauge library so this program can be freely distributed.


Here is a video of the emulator in action. This might be useful for anyone who is doing a mail order multi tune.

You can download the program and source code here:


This includes a mk2 FG file which with PATS turned off so you can test this on the bench. BA/BF/FG Mk1 does not support canbus cruise control, so you will need to wire up the cruise control buttons manually.

Hi @Roland@pcmtec  ,

is it possible that you reupload the source code?

I'm trying to emulate a interface for testing software and would like to have a inspiration.

Best regards


The top link still works for me.

It's a very simple test program, its not really very inspirational imo.

We use WPF and devexpress controls for most things which let you build fairly powerful graphics fairly easily.

Can you please check the download source code link, it doesn't seem to work.

https://pcmtecgeneralstorage.blob.core.windows.net/public/TestApps%2FPcmtec.DashEmulator - source code.zip

Or email me a copy please to sparkie.m@xtra.co.nz



Hi sparkie.m@xtra.co.nz,
The source code is no longer available. But the top link still works and you can use that exe in the folder for testing.
Best regards
