I just got my OBD-II scan tool from Alex at www.obd-ii.com I got the Tricom which is the probably the best one they got. It works with my 97 Tacoma. Its got a digital dash display with 2 big guages and 4 smaller gauges. All 6 guages are configurable to display anything your car can send to the OBD-II port. I only plug it to test it once cuz im still putting my system together. I was able to display RPM, MPH, engine load, Air intake temp. I only messed with it for about 10 minutes. The fastest update time is 1 second. I hope the new software cuts down the update time to quarter second or at least half second. Anyway I really think it's worth the 183 I spent.
I was considering the scanner from www.autotap.com but their enhanced all in one scanner is $490. If you have an LS1 engine, their system works with the EFIlive which has a bad *** virtual dash display.
I made my OBD-II interface on the basis of this schematics:
It has been working perfectly for months...
Mmmm... I wish that circuit would work with my Mercury Cougar!
If it is OBD-II compliant, it should... But I guess it is Ford, right? And Ford has its own OBD-II implementation, isn't?
You mean something like this?
I wrote this myself to use with my Harrison R&D scanner. Let me know if you want the code. It's a little jerky because I refresh everything with each cycle. I will be fine tuning it to only refresh those things that change quickly with every cycle.
dam thats nice would it work for my 86 s-10 blazer? wich i guess would be obd1
Probably not. Sorry.:(
