Thread: New OBDII scantool - Beta testers?

    Will it work on my 2007 Nissan Sentra? I am interested in "baselining" current information and looking to keep a history on both the "generic sensors" and the Nissan Sentra Specific sensors. I can therefore track changes in my engine over the years and monitor its performance. I am not sure why other people do not do this. It would help simplifying future troubleshooting for Do it yourselfers or when you take the car to the shop.

    It will work on the Sentra and will give you all the generic sensor information, but for the Nissan specific sensors you need to know the PID's and I do not have the info on the Nissan Specific pids, most of the low cost scantools do not have access to the "Secret" sensors and the auto companies want a bag of money before they will give us the info, maybe someday down the road, but not yet.

    If you have to have the Nissan Specific sensors I was going to suggest Autotap but I just checked and even their software does not give you Nissan Data.

    Thanks

    I emailed Autotap which I found by accident today and was waiting for a reply.....kind of scary that we were thinking along the same lines.

    The other item is how to trick the Tire Pressure Monitoring Sytem (TPMS). This has been mandated by congress for 2007 due to uniflated tires waisting gas come to find out. However, people working in elevations and with changes in temperature in the Fall and Spring is also setting the dam things off in everyone's vehicle due to tight tolerances in pressure sensors.

    I bought after market wheels and rims for the car and they did not come with the sensors. An extra 200 bucks if I want to clear the light on my dash (or use 3 cents worth of black electrical tape to hide it).

    Get a load of this: come to find out also that some TPMS's are transmitted to the dash via a signal. People using metalic tint are finding out that the tint is interfering with the signal and the sensor is coming on. Oh and forget about pulling a fuse on a lot of cars. Congress has thought of that too. The law says that these cannot be turned off so the hooked the fuse up to critical components in parallel to the TPMS.

    Anyone know how to defeat this signal for a new Sentra please let me know.

    Yes Autoengenuity does claim to support Nissan specific codes, scangauge only shows DTC codes, that is an easy one since the DTC codes are documented in a bunch of places, it's the Sensor readings for OEM specific sensors that is difficult to get at.

    Paul,

    Is there any support planned for the Subaru SSM protocol? Also, ideally at a baud rate of 56600 how many readings would you expect to be able to get per second?
    I installed my carpc into my pet Kangaroo, mate.

    I think that one would be easy to support, I have some info on the protocol but not complete, if someone was to provide the details I could get that protocol supported, I will look around to see if I can uncover more details.

    The # of readings that you can get at the higher baud rate is really dependent on the ECU and what latencies it runs into, on an ISO vehicle you might not get a lot of additional readings. With the increased baud rate you should also look at playing with the ATST (timeout) setting and keep going lower until you see NO DATA messages, this will reduce the time the scantool waits before sending the next command and will help improve the throughput.

    Thanks

    Well after reading 12 pages of comments I have to say this looks like a great piece of harware. Are there any thoughts on making a bluetooth version? Any development in making these not have to use the old modem commands? In post #110 you mention these are now in "limited production" I assume by the website you are still producing them? I have an 03 Accord V6 and would definatly like to purchase one IF they are available and IF someone can point me to how it would be used in a RR front end.

    Thanks in advance!

    PS how much should I over pay for an additional OBD cable? I would like to have a spare.

    For this, you might want to take a look at our DashCommand™ software. DashCommand™ is a touch screen friendly software application that delivers high quality OBD-II dashboards on any screen size. It also fully supports the OBDPro interface and is designed to be easily embedded into your favorite front end.

    You can go ahead and download the software and start playing with it. You won't be able to connect to the vehicle without a license key, but it has a demonstration mode that shows what the gauges will look like when they are active. If you have any questions about using it with the OBDPro interface, or getting it up and running, just let me know.
