    Default ELM327 Software

    Got myself an ELM327 to play around with a bit and also to check if there were any DTC's causing poor fuel consumption (see http://forum.vectra-c.com/showthread.php?t=31868&page=2)

    In general, it works well with the simple scantool 1.3 software that came with it but I have been unable to read the majority of the sensors. This is apparenly due to the fact that the software doesn't fully support CAN bus.

    Is there anyone out there with an ELM327 and fully functional software that can read all the data from OBD2 / CAN bus vectra's?

    I've tried a fiew pieces of freeware but they all seem to have the same problem.

    Nice piece of kit tho - will be great when it works fully.

    Thanks

    Lemme see what ELM thingy i have

    Cant find out what mine has, have you got a link to the one you purchased?


    Unless its a specialised software/hardware setup you'll find that only the main ECU codes can be pulled from it.. The cheaper setups arent capable of addressing all the indivdual ECU's which form part of the network. If you require a more proficient diagnostic tool then i can recommend a bit of kit called vaux-com. It offers so much more ability than cheaper £50-£200 bits of kit.

    it's an ELM 327 USB - like this (http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/ELM327-USB-CAN...QQcmdZViewItem)

    It supports most (if not all) of the OBD2 protocols but for CAN doesn't seem to be able to read all of the sensors. I can read the DTC's no problem (if there were any) just not the sensors.

    The interface should be able to do it, I gather it's just that on CAN based vehicles some of the senors are addressed differently (so much for standards )

    It will only read engine codes, I had something very similar and not all sensors were available to be read...
