Hi

Can I connect to OBD on this car with the DL1 Pro? If I can which connector do I need?

Thanks Andrew

Do you know if it is OBD 1 or 2?

Kind regards,

This is OBD1, but I use a basic OBD2 reader to read live data. I have a lead to convert the large round plug under the bonnet to an OBD2 compatible fitting. I was wondering if I could use this lead with you serial converter and hook it up to the DL1. I do not intend to use the OBD port for TP or RPM, as I believe transfer speed will be a problem. It would be nice to log temps, fuel trims etc through the OBD to save using analogue inputs.

Unfortunately the answer is no. We do not support the OBD1 protocol and isn't likely to be added.

Kind regards,
Kieran
