    porsche install ? anyoneeeeee?

    Has anyone installed one of these odbII readers on a porsche? i have read that they are compatible with most cars but i have never heard or seen the 2 words together in once sentence(porsche, odbII). has anyone done it to their porsche ? or maybe heard stories ? have friends who did it ? anything at all. I would really love to install this on my carputer, seems like a sick option to be able to do that. If i had this , i think there would be absolutly nothing left that a stock system could have over a built-in carputer. thanks for the help, hopefully ill get some.

    btw , i tierd searching , absolutly nothing

    Someone here installed ODBII on their Porsche (944?), under Linux no less.

    i dont think that quilifies , cause his car is a 1988 and he installed his own tools to get back info. im pretty sure its different on the new cars. prob a lot more complex. anywayz, im just looking for a cleaning install where i can just plug it in and use the software on my touchscreen. For some reason , i cant find anyone at all with what i am trying to do.

    Apparently Porsche does use OBD II. http://tools.baumtools.com/iscan_porsche.jsp check the application guide to see if your model has it.

    If it was sold in the US since 1996 it is OBD2. The question is whether you can find a scan tool that will get to enhanced data (beyond OBD2).

    ha ha it's easier on new cars, if only i had obd i would certainely used it but not so sure... obd is a terribly lazy protocol

    Porsche doesn't have ODB systems, they have Bosche DME..

    There was a guy that did the linux box on his 944, but it didn't control the DME..

    good place that explains the Bosch DME http://www.frwilk.com

    Now, the programming could be duplicated on a CarPC

    Hope that helps

    BTW, I have a 85 944

    As I am pretty familiar with the Bosh Motronic systems, I will also be checking into pulling data for display purposes.

    Thats after a couple Car PC's are done etc.....

    Good luck
    unfortunately there's no way to pull anything from the 8051 as the tx & rx ports exists on this chip but it's not programmed for...
    The Franck Wilk's website is good for the 944 series not for newest boxsters and other 911

    What a nice old thread to bring back to life!

    The Porsche DME can be read with ODB2 but it is limited in what it offers, ideally you need a Porsche System Tester II for reading and diagnosing the codes (amongst other things).
