The only additional documentation I can think of that might help in this
sort of case would be something like a CAN bus troubleshooting
flowchart. Having something like that wouldn't help avoid this kind of
problem, but it might reduce the time to resolution.
It does sound like the software Juan is using could use better error
reporting in the case where there's apparently no module responding at
the address selected.
Pretty typical in projects like this for us to get a lot of mileage out
of software and process documentation that's just barely adequate to the
task and lacking in "frills" like good user interfaces and/or error
reporting. That doesn't make it right, but I don't think there are any
magic fixes, either.
