Figured I'd start a good thread with easy info.
Easiest and cheapest method available at the moment.
- Buy a bluetooth OBDII scanner off of amazon. This one can be had for $20USD. There are even cheaper ones. It doesn't matter much. If the chipset is the ELM327, it will work.
- Get the Torque App. $5USD. You can again use any bluetooth reading OBDII app, but this one is best on android.
- In whatever app you have there will be a setting for "Special ELM" settings. You need to enter these settings and save them.
Code: Select all
ATIB 96 \n ATIIA 13 \n ATSH8213F0 \n ATSP4 \n 0100
The codes do the following:
IB 96 -> Set to 9600 Baud
IIA 13 -> Set the init address
SH 8213F0 -> Set the header
SP4 0100 -> Set the protocol
- Plug in the adapter, turn the car on and enjoy. You'll get live sensor data and fault codes for under $30USD.
The other cheap common option is buying one of these and getting techstream. This one is self explanatory.
