Wow, you are awesome. I just got an email back from the developer and he said to look at stty also.

Thanks!

thanx,

BTW, the MPG function I mentioned has a bug, they never convert tSpeed from kph to mph.

Using your advice with the command stty I got to the point of seeing the raw traffic from the scanner with minicom. I put the command into the perl script and it doesn't complain about it but it errors trying to find readable codes. I will work more on it later.

Fourthbean -

Can you tell me which you bought? Did you buy this one for GM products? :

ElmScan VPW Scan Tool - P/N: 420300
http://www.scantool.net/products/pro...products_id=12

Thanks,

CarloSW2

Yes, that is the one I bought. And I opted for no case to knock off 15 bucks from the price (I am cheap).

I have been poking around and it looks like what I need is to find what PID coming from my OBDII port is the injector duty cycle/pulse width or something of the sorts. Looks like it should be there, but it is not published anywhere so I will need to find it .

The scanner I have can be set to monitor all parameters being spat out from the port, so I guess I would need to turn that on and log it and then decipher and eliminate until I could find what I need (assuming it is there somewhere). Might be a bigger job than I think.

Yes logging would be good.

Look for the following PIDS coming out of your computer:
$PID07 (fuel trim)
$PID0D (Vehicle Speed)
$PID10 (MAF)


if you don't have PID10 (MAF) then look to see if you have:
$PID07 (fuel trim)
$PID0D (Vehicle Speed)
$PID0B (Manifold Pressure)
$PID0F (intake air temp)
$PID0C (RPM)

In the "scantool" program I can run in DOS or Windows, I get source code. The BOLD values are the ones I am receiving from elmscan in scantool :

Code:

That looks to be in line with what I was getting in windows with scantool. I haven't had a chance yet to log any data from the port, the thought of sorting through it all makes me squeamish .

I guess a good way would be to get a filter to get rid of any EPA set pid values and then sort through the rest to see what is available.

I am currently working on getting the computer set up to the point I can listen to something on the way to work. So that has taken higher priority for the moment.

No problem, I am doing my own contortions. One problem I am having is that the elmscan doesn't seem to "sync" or connect to the OBDII port. If the red LED is flashing, I am connected and ready to gather data. If the red LED is solid, then the PC is unable to connect to the elmscan. I can get the flashing red LED maybe one time in 30 connects (aka plug it into the car's OBD II socket). I submitted a ticket into the scantool support service.

I am hoping this freeware offers datalogging I can post-process, until I can (hopefully) get my own program running :
