1. The LLS is shipped with the 3 AVR-CAN boards unplugged, for safer shipping.
2. Connect the 4-port RS232-to-USB adapter to your computer, using the supplied USB cable.
3. Use Device/Hardware Manager to set the COM-Port numbers, setting the baud rates to 115200 baud. The settings "8-data, No-Parity, 1-Stop", with Flow Control set to "None", should be used (should be the default).
4. With the 3 D9 female connectors on the left, looking at the LLS Power Switch, the OBD cable should exit the black box near the bottom right of the "end" of the box.
5. In that position, the Power Switch UP is Always-ON, middle position is OFF, and DOWN is Automatic-ON (when the LEAF is "ON").
6. Commect one AVR-CAN Board to the EV-CAN channel: With the LLS Power Switch OFF, connect one AVR-CAN board to the female D9 that is furthest from the Power Switch.
7. With the USB unplugged from the computer, connect the female D9 on the Board to the male D9 on the R-2-U adapter board that is furthest from the USB connection.
8. Plug the OBD cable into the LEAF, connect the USB from the R2U adapter to the PC, turn the LEAF ON (Ready or ACC2 Mode), and turn the LLS Power ON.
9. Start the CAN-Do program (that you have already Run successfully), and use the I/O Control to read in just the EV messages, with the lowest COM-Port number that you assigned. Check "Count Messages" (or some such, but NOT "Monitor Messages"), and begin reading. If you have specified the correct com port, messages should be coming in at about 200 per second.
10. If no mwssages come in, Stop, adjust the COM-Port to one of the others that you set, and try again. When you get the correct one, messages should "fly" in. Do not continue until you have success here.
11. Power the LEAF and LLS off, attach the next AVR-CAN Board (the Car-CAN channel), and test again in a similar manner. When both channels work, proceed.
12. Connect the third (last) AVR-CAN Board and test the AV-CAN channel. Messages are slower coming in here. When this works, proceed.
13. Try recording all 3 channels at once, write the data to an ".alc" (all CANs) file.
14. Try Logging with "See/Show Dashboard" checked.
15. Well done, Enjoy.
