    integrade OBD2 to '92 vechicle with Vag-com?

    hey. i have an audi 80, wich has the Old 2x2 connector (protocol kw1281). i want really bad, to make digital LCD speedometer (Especially since my speedometer is broken ) but it seems that Dashcommand only supports, ISO9141 and above... so two questions. would an adapter from 2x2 pin to 16pin (obd2) work?
    if not, is there a way, to "translate" the cars protocol, to a protocol, supported by dashcommand? and if there are no sensors for somehting, add them?? i really need help so any advice is welcome!!

    I can't speak on the connector to obd2 connector, but for a quick solution to your speedo needs would be to intall Driveline as a front end. As long as you have a gps unit it will provide a speedometer on the main page where the vehicle logo is just by clicking on the logo. It works for km's or mph. Just a thought SNO

    Somebody on this forum is working on a protocol translator for cases like these.
    BUT (VERY, VERY, Big But), that would only work for you if this old ecu has a vehicle speed, which I seriously doubt.

    Hello settra,

    You are searching for exactly that : http://www.proenium.com/products/pge1/

    This device automatically translates to OBD2 the old and non-standard protocols, and lets you add some additional sensors, like wideband, EGT or any of your choice.

    What engine are we talking about?

    The ECU in older audi's is usually located underneath the carpet in the passenger fotwell.
    Failure is not an option...
