    I got some of the stuff for it (the wiring hook up from obd-2.com, but it seems to be real flakey when my Volvo 850 is running. Actually, it was pretty flakey when I was stopped too. I don't know if it is just because of my car, or maybe because of the connector thing.

    I was just about to order that connector ($76 doesn't seem too bad). Anyone else have any experience with these, and the windows programs that go with them?

    I'm running autotap. If you have any questions with that I can help you with. Here are some screen shots..


    Oh, and you can monitor just about everything about the car. Close to 120 various inputs. You can only view a small amount of them at a time though.//

    You can actually build your own. Here is one web site on just that

    The web site

    Also I have a very small program called pcmcomm.exe if you want to take a look. I can post it on a web site I guess or could I attach it here?

    Is it possible to control when your automatic transmission shifts with this software?

    That's freakin' awesome! If only my car was compatible...

    Of course, I'm going to an aftermarket computer, so I guess it doesn't matter...
