smeesseman and/or veetid, i just got my Elmscan ISO USB (elm323) today and hooked it up.
the problem is that the obdII plugin cannot connect to the ecu. it communicated back and forth a couple times (lights on the unit), but never connects and gives up after about 30 seconds.
however, the scantool program works just fine, no problems. i have the plugin set up exactly like the scantool program is set up, com4 baud 9600.
i even tried launching the scantool program from CF... works fine. no dice for the plugin though
my elmscan firmware is revision 2.0 if that helps... car is '06 subaru impreza
01 Jeep Cherokee Sport 4x4 Installed
M10000/512Mb/20GB, Lilliput 7", Holux GM-210
nav is COM3. i know its not a problem with the obdii interfering or getting interfered w/ because the scantool program works fine with everything else running.... but the plugin doesn't work no matter what.
I'll have the log either after lunch when i can run out to my car (i love my carpc muhaha) or after work.
Well, i got bored so here is the log. i also threw in the config.xml (rename to .txt so i could upload it) for good measure.
note that this is with the beta obdii.dll in this thread... before that i tried the dll that came with 2.0 of CF (not sure if they were the same one or not).. same result....
the log looks like it cant communicate past the device ID query....
The Elm323 Spec states that the ATSI command must be sent for initialization. However in your case when we send this command we are receiving a bus init error. I will build you a test plugin that will bypass this init command to see what results you get, keep watching the thread I'll post a download link when I have time to recompile everything...
thanks smeesseman, i will try this first thing in the morning
It works perfectly, thanks smeesseman. would you be interested in the log from your fix running on my system?
With ELM 327 based modules (and possibly others too) the ATRV command returns the current voltage of the vehicles electrical system. Is there a way to get this integrated into CF's OBD plugin? It would not only be good to have to keep an eye on but to be able to set warnings for low voltage (and warnings for the rest of the sensors as well btw) and even shut the carpc down if the voltage reached a preset voltage ie. too low.
I installed my carpc into my pet Kangaroo, mate.
