Abstract

A vehicle control system comprises an industry standard CAN network with a number of nodes distributed around the vehicle for controlling corresponding parts of the vehicle. One such node (40) is located in the housing (12) of the vehicle interior rearview mirror (18) and directly controls the reflectivity of an electro-optic mirror unit (28), in accordance with the state of at least one ambient light sensor, and a remote keyless entry device (20). The node (40) also communicates via an ISO9141 interface with a number of slave controllers such as a sun-roof control module (44) mounted adjacent a sun-roof (14) and a roof control module (42) mounted in a roof housing (16). By this means the UEM (40) exercises indirect control of the sun-roof (14) in accordance with the state of a switch (32), and exercises indirect control of various lamps GEN1, GEN2, FLL and FRL in the roof housing (16) in accordance with the state of switches Gen, FL and FR mounted in the roof housing (16) or, in the case of the lamps GEN1 and GEN2, when a vehicle door is opened.
