  • OBD-II can you use it to...

    resest your odometer, remove a govenor?

  • #2
    Nope, you can only use OBD II for diagnostics and a few performance measurement things listed here: http://www.obddiagnostics.com/obdinfo/pids1-2.html

    The ONLY command that OBD II lets you send to the car to change things is the reset check engine light everything else is read only.

              something that limits the max RPMs and the max speed that your vehicle can reach before the goverenor kicks in and stops you from accelerating. If i knew anything about engines/automotives im sure it wouldnt be hard to remove, which reminds me, i have several mechanic family members how im sure would be glad to assit me in removing this demeaning piece of hardware.

                  nah lol, they come stock on quite a few vehicles to keep them road legal? anyways you'll probaly never even know its on if its on. I just got curious one day after i found out my truck was a 5 speed automatic, the governor kicked in around 115-120 mph. just in case anyone doesnt believ me it was on I75, and plenty possible to go that fast
                  now im looking into just having my vehicle dyno? tested to see the max speed horses torque n what not. Its eh. more legal

                          haha no, i was just telling him about the ODB-II seeing as i had just learned about it, hes an IT manager also, so i figured he'd be interested. And hes no idiot, hes aware that you could very easily notice that a car was not brand new, yet conveintly had 0 miiles.

                              i've taken a turn at 50 mph, in a 98 ford explorer. completly stock, given the truck did driift and didnt hold tite, it was no where near flipping, i wasnt accelerating so the truck did slow down but i went into the turn at 50 mph. I would'nt make somethin as foolish as this up
