Yes, the 120 ohm is the termination resistor, it's ok. Wha's your email?

Is this the same module that can allow Immobilizer function or is that a box that was never green-lighted?

No, it's not the same, and yes, the immo box was never produced.

Oh my god.

Sorry, I'm not used to being able to purchase MSLabs products from retail locations, prop awarded. Now poor Andrew will feel the wrath of my incessant wiring and configuration questions

Ok, new question: After looking at the link again, I already have the MSLabs Wideband CAN module but it was purchased BEFORE the OBD-II addon was available. Is the OBD-II part something that I, a lowly end user can field upgrade myself or do I need to rebuy the whole wideband CAN module with the OBD-II addon?

If you bought it from me, all the ones I sold were equipped with OBDII capability. The only difference was whether or not I sent you the pigtail for it or not. I don't know if it's always been like that, but that's how all of the ones that came through here were. Gordon, shoot me an email and I'll send you a pigtail - I have a few extras since Rev switched to a different style that plugs directly into the box.

If you bought the module without the OBD-II, then there's no provision for the OBD-II output on your module.

To clarify, since this looks like a blatant contradiction Rev sells a module without OBD-II compatability, but all the ones I've sold since we added them to the catalog last year have been equipped with it. IOW, If you bought your module through Trackspeed, then you definitely have OBD-II functionality, even if there's no plug for it. The plug just wires into the power/ground/CAN wires on the early modules. On the most recent boxes, it plugs into the other side on a DB connector.

Awesome, thanks Andrew! Mine came from MSLabs quite some time ago so I'm not sure it'll work? I'll be in touch though, depending.

Interesting. While I tend to agree, my unit is a very very early unit, possibly the first 10-20 sold? I'm pretty sure there are firmware and hardware revisions since I bought mine so I knew that the addon might not be a possibility.

I'm happy to open it up and snap pics or try to find my order number if that'll help. You guys know me well enough that everything I do is derivative, no new ground being broken here

Default Help with the OBD-II data module

Originally Posted by Reverant View Post

What does this mean for you?

You can connect any OBD-II reader to your Megasquirt and get OBD-II realtime data: RPM, TPS, MAP, coolant temp, etc!

This will NOT allow you to fake/pass emissions tests. Codes (DTCs) are currently not supported.

The following data (PIDs) can be displayed:

- RPM
- MAP
- TPS
- CLT (coolant temp)
- IAT (air temp)
- VSS (MS3 only)
- Timing Advance
- AFR**
- EGO correction (ie "Short Term Fuel Trim")**
- Barometric pressure (requires a baro sensor in your ECU)**
- Knock Retard**

With OBD-II on your MS2/MS3, the possibilities are limitless:

- Install a ScanGauge-II and view up to 4 parameters in a single, neat display
- Put a OBD-II bluetooth adapter on the module and view everything on your Android phone or tablet with many Android apps, such as Torque!***
- Datalog using any of the literally hundreds of devices that support logging of OBD-II data!
- Use gauges and dashes that don't support the MS CAN protocol but support OBD-II!

Preorder now at $129 shipped, the first units will ship on 07/01 - the price will be $149 shipped after 07/01!

* The MS1 ECU is not supported since it doesn't have CAN bus support.
** These features require a device that can read extended PIDs, such as the ScanGauge-II.
*** Our tests have generally shown that some bluetooth adapters are not reliable; not all phones/tablets will work with all bluetooth adapters; we recommend a wired connection to the ECU whenever possible.

Reverant, I bought this module to use with my MS3 and I am trying to use the PLX scan, but with no success.... I can’t make the MS3 send the info through the OBD-II module.... the scanner reads nothing. Can you help me configurate the Ms3 to do so?
obviously, I am doing something wrong....

thanks!

Doesn't it connect? Or does it connect and shows all values at 0?

it does connect and it shows some readings, but only once every several seconds.... lets say, about 30s. I tryed to change the refresh rate on the settings to up to 100Hz but it doesn’t seem to affect anything
