    OBD II questions

    Hey I just registered here after searching the site for a month or so and have been trying to find info before I post. First of all hello to all and I've enjoyed reading the info found on here.

    Second what I want to know is if anyone has any info on obd programs for Nissans? I worked for Nissan before and we used the scan tool called "consult" which is 3k. ANd my friend first informed me of building a carputer which I'm in the process of researching all necessary parts pricing and options.

    So does anyone know what would wok best for a Nissan? I would like to have the gauge display's and all the other basic stuff with an oiption of being able to clear dtc's.

    Thanks for any help.

    Yes I ed

    I'm working on the same problem. I've got a 96 Maxima and I've tapped into the OBDII port but this does not provide the same info as the Consult port (which is what the $3k Consult machines plugs into).

    Can you get any info through your friend about the workings of the Consult port...pinouts, codes, voltages, etc?

    I hear its complicated.

    Also, one could pay $400 and pickup nProbe which does pretty much the same thing as the Consult device.

    Hey cyjad where in chicago are you? Have you ever went to any of the meets up there @ busse woods?

    I havent been on Nissan forums in a while I dont know if they got info for carputer stuff like that, but I dunno I'm mostly on sr20forums

    edit:hmmm the nprobe looks real nice and has alot of features i never saw working at Nissan with the consult. But I want it to be intergrated into the carputer and from what I'm getting about the link i posted it ca read all makes and models (well most anywho)

    have you looked at www.autotap.com ?? they claim to have a lot of manufacturer specific information and looks to be pretty nice software ...

    it's a little expensive when compared to scantool.net but compared to $3k it's not bad

    Autotap only is ford gm and chrysler.

    This one also works with Nissans/asian models.
