Welcome aboard!

Can’t help much regarding the specific car, but can give some general pointers.

If you can get hold of a service manual, it would be extremely helpful (if only for the wiring diagrams and information on which CAN buses and modules are in the car).

Have a look to see if anybody else has discovered and released CAN bus codes, OBDII PIDs, etc, or other information for your car. For example this looks pretty good and probably covers most of what is needed for the Ioniq 5: https://www.ioniqforum.com/threads/torque-pro-pids-for-ioniq-5.37793/ <https://www.ioniqforum.com/threads/torque-pro-pids-for-ioniq-5.37793/>

The left/right direction for OBDII cable is purely cosmetic. It depends on the cleanest direction for the cable to route. The standard is OBD2 (aka OBDII). OBD1 was obsolete in 1995 and irrelevant nowadays. Pictures below.

Developers Guide is linked here. https://www.openvehicles.com/developers. If using windows, you can follow the “Developing with Visual Studio Code (on Windows)” instructions there. If using Linux/Mac, you follow the “Vehicle Firmware Development Tools (Linux/Mac)” section.

The firmware code is C++, and there is plenty of example vehicle support code there.

There’s a pretty good YouTube video on using OVMS to reverse engineer OBD PIDs that you can find here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8RwV2e-Fg7g
I’m working on my own series of YouTube videos on OVMS. The upcoming (but not yet released) ones are also on CAN buses and reverse engineering. You can find the channel here: https://www.youtube.com/channel/UC97jOb8YLhYMBhJ4zrCx9XQ <https://www.youtube.com/channel/UC97jOb8YLhYMBhJ4zrCx9XQ>

Regards, Mark.
