Your friend might think that the communications must be serial so he wants to know how to go from RJ45 to serial. The communications is actually ethernet. You plug the cable into the same port of your computer as you do the internet. So just a standard RJ45 connector on that end. If possible, use a grounded RJ45 connector (not common) and tie the ground of the car to the computer as per the cable drawings. But it should work without doing the grounding - just a chance of a problem.
