Red wire: Connect to pin 1.
Black wire: Connect to pin 2.
Twisted white: Connect to pin 8.
Twisted black: Connect to pin 9.

Done.

Ok, and the "pins" are on the db37 connector? 1 is top left? 37 is bottom right?

Are the wires from the module connected on the outside of the ms3 to the db37 connector?

Get something (some kind of female connector I guess) from Radio Shack to connect?

I'm a electrical/ wiring NEWB.

There are numbers on the DB37 if you look very closely.

1 is top left, 19 is top right.

Didn't you receive a DB37 pigtail with the MS3 ECU?

Oh man this makes me wish my NA had OBDII. I use VCDS for my Jetta and I ******* love it. This would be most choice.

Jeff- if you have an ms2 or 3 this will add a obd2 port.

Dimitris- got it all soldered into the pigtail, everything has been put up and I plugged the obd2 wifi dongle into it and the dongle is not lighting up. I know the dongle works (tested in truck). There is a second red wire about 1/2 the length of the other 4 wires. Does it need 12v? Any ideas?

There's a 2nd red wire as you said, that goes straight to the connector, not to the OBD-II box. Give this red wire either a permanent 12V (ie battery) per the specs, or a switched 12V if you don't like the battery drain.

Is there any plan to support code reporting to pass emissions?

Absolutely none whatsoever. The moment I do it, I might as well mail a blank check to the EPA to fill in for my fine.

Having an unmolested OEM harness and some way to make a stock ECU feel happy once per year is one way.
I swap engines, but there are many ways that are simpler than that

But the day when (if) there are money to be made (fines) by doing road-side OBD-II error code readings the casual approach will need to change.
Horrifying idea, but not far from real with networked self driving cars, to use a road you must have a compliant/verified car...

Niklas, you know we have roadside smog checks in CA right?

This is happenning already, right now. Those pigs block off a random busy road and just test whoever they feel will fail.

Visual, sniff or pulling OBD-II codes?
Interesting since CA have been successful in exporting their "technologies" to other "socialistic" states.

I have thus far dodged every single one (dip into a side street before the checkpoint and navigate around it), but from the people that have done it I believe it's sniffer only. I'll double check.

I know of some local tests with stationary emission scanners (IR or whatever technology). Couple that with speed cameras and someone would be happy (automatic fines). That would of course pick up those who just use the throttle a little too hard, even if the car is compliant in a defined test procedure.

Checking OBD-II is usually as fast as a sniffer, but the connector have much more locations than the tailpipes (less training needed).

Back on topic (almost).

How huge would a device be that allowed selected CAN attributes to be sent over BT to e.g. RaceChrono?
RaceLogger bluetooth input format - RaceChrono forum
Just 8 analogue, one digital and one rpm channel.
Doing this directly from CAN removed the limitation in OBD-II (no oil temp or other special things).
Can MS do math between parameters and send that as a new CAN property?

Rev,

Any idea if your module works with this; Petrel Data Systems OBDLink MX Scan Tool?

What's shipping time from date of order?

It works with the $10 eBay bluetooth dongles, so I guess it should work with the $100 ones too.

~15 days.

Fair enough... I asked about that specific unit because it seems that the Solostorm software from Petreldata only works with ELM-327 based hardware and that is the one they advertise on their site.. I'll do some more exploring.

And a quick google search looks like there's a bunch at the lower price points.

Thanks.
