Can you tell me which tool you are using? Coolant temp I believe, but none of the tools I've seen have been able to show oil temp or pressure - I don't believe those PIDS are supported by the car.emm
I have a more intuitive scan tool
It’ll show me oil temp, oil pre, and exact coolant temp as well
It is supported but you have to find the code to retrieved it.Can you tell me which tool you are using? Coolant temp I believe, but none of the tools I've seen have been able to show oil temp or pressure - I don't believe those PIDS are supported by the car.
I started this project primarily as a way to display values such as oil temp and pressure from add-on analog sensors without having to add external gauges to display the data. I'll admit showing only that data available to scan tools via OBD2 / CAN is a bit of duplication - there are a stock of applications out there that can do that, and in fact most of the data I'm showing up until now is available to the ICE directly without the need for any external devices, but doing all this works well as a proof of concept before going to the trouble of wiring in additional analog sensors.
I called autel to see if they can support the PIDs to me but theThe standard OBD2 PID for oil temperature is OBD2 PID 5C / 92 and isn't supported by the car. If oil pressure is supported, its a non-standard PID and those are notoriously hard to track down unless you pay the OEMs the big bucks for the info.
If you have the info on those PID's share it.
This is undoubtedly true, but bear in mind one of my goals is to avoid adding additional gauges - hence trying to display data through the ICE....a much easier solution is just to get a oil temp gauge
I just hope the way mazda setup their system was easier to customize.This is undoubtedly true, but bear in mind one of my goals is to avoid adding additional gauges - hence trying to display data through the ICE.
TBH, this project is as much about me proving I can do it, and being a useful way of learning new tech stuff I was interesting in anyway, as it is about real practical value. In the end, I'm an unrepentant nerd and as the saying goes - "why climb the mountain?" - because it's there. If I end up with something others can use, so much the better.
