OBD II and Citroen Xsara
Recently I bought citroen xsara 2.0 HDI and now I’m trying to make dumb OBD II cable. I found a few projects on internet on that topic so my question is: What is the best OBD software for Citroen (PSA) and dumb cables? What is the most used (or tested) OBD II interface circuit?
(I will try to use this : http://hem.passagen.se/tomasf/obd2/ ) will this do?
Best from Slovenia,
I have the same question.
Maybe here is some cables?
Thanx in advance!
When you say you are trying to make a dumb cable, what do you actually mean by this?
You need to check the protocol, the car is likely to be using ISO, although this will depend on the age.
The most well known and testing circuits are probably those based on the ELM Electronics chips.
Hope this helps,
With "dumb" cable I mean cable without ELM chip in the middle. Please check my link in first post.
Mvts I’m waiting for the connector. Hope I will get it soon. I will “share with you” if my “little project” was a success.
OBD-DIAG4000 (ISO,KWP,PWM,VPW.CAN,LAWICEL,VAG-Mode = KKL)
.... a German project.
There are plenty of straight cables available, however I'm not quite sure what you are looking to achieve with one?
Ok. I´am very interested.
Thanx in advance for all info!
If your Xsara is from 2000 or before there is a good chance it is not OBD compatible at all.
ok nice to see other xsaras owners around!!! i have a xsara 1400 vtr (ok not a VTS) but it is a year 2002.. so I am sure it is OBD compatible.. i am sure ThePohorc's HDI is a year +2001. I do have the same question however..
ther is a good site for xsaras maybe if I have time I will search there myself
so far as I know www.xsarasportsclub.com closed a while ago, join http://www.cxoc.net/ it's a really good forum for xsara questions.. and the members are really friendly
