    OBD (On Board Diagnostics)
    ----------------------------------------

    1. I bought an OBD interface kit: I bought this one for just less than 40 delivered: http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/ws/eBayISAPI.d...3AIT&viewitem=

    (PLEASE NOTE: I can tell you the one I bought works, I couldn't tell you about any other, I just took my chances)

    2. This is what you get for your dosh:




    3. This is where the port is on the Suzuki Swift - note I have removed the interior trim piece directly below the steering wheel in this photo. The port goes straight up.


    4. This is just one print screen i managed to grab and save before the laptop battery died on me:



    I'll add a little more later

    Sorry - I barely understand most of the OBD terminology! I just know that the ELM-327 protocol is supposed to be able to read most new cars.

    I was surprised because the googling I'd done had just found loads and loads of people who were saying they just couldn't get it to work on their Suzuki.

    All that matters is that your scanner can access the protocol that your car uses. All car companies sometimes come up with their own, its the programmers for the OBD2 to come up with a way to read it. If im not mistaken though, Suzuki works with GM. I have to assume they are using parts from GM, and one of GM's protocols are being used now. Anyways nice install.....

    Few questions though.... have you thought about putting a double din screen, like a EBY701? You have the space to do it, and I think it would look more OEM. You can easily relocate the Audio Head Unit some place else. You have like the ultimate dash, so easy to work with and screams double din. I have a DODGE, before they used double din, so I had to have someone heavily mod my dash to get a screen in there. I used to have a flip out, but it didnt seem OEM.

    Old Dash and New Dash:

    Yeah I did consider the single screen in the double din - but for quite a few reasons I didn't go for it:

    + A bit flashy for the area I park, the motorized is hidden.
    + No back-up plan if it doesn't work - I drive ten hours a week to and from work, if i'd have chosen the single screen I'd have had no tunes since christmas while everything was being sorted.
    + I can't adjust the screen for glare - so I'd need to spend a lot more money on the anti-glare screens.

    It's something I'll look into when I fancy a change over

    Hi Michael,

    Just to share with you, I'm using a Elmscan ISO USB (equivalent to a Elmscan 323), and was able to pull codes from my ECU on my Suzuki Swift (non-JDM). However, it didn't work on my other friend's SwiftSports though...

    Cheers.

    depends - depends which ODB diagnostic tool you buy.

    Depends where you are and what swift you've got. Mine is a European swift so it's ECU follows local protocols it seems. But a Jap or USA might have a different ECU and adhere to a different OBD protocol.
