IIRC a fella called 'Dang' sorted out the odometer programming on E series - from memory he also cracked the trip computer also.
Just search for any thread he has written to.

juts letting you guys know 'Dang' was pretty unhelpful on the topic.

so the project is on hold until i can find someone (preferably a ford engineer) who can give me the info i need such as data values and trip computer hardware info or decent internal pics or someone to donate one to the project as i don't have one to pull apart.

we really need one to reverse engineer from. pretty hard without one.

Hey, just went name trolling.

All my work was on a BA or newer, so I'm not sure if that's helpful here. Currently writing a Win32 app to use an ELM327 to get all this stuff.

auMatt is currently writing a utility that deals with Clusters - I've seen it do diagostics and set some things like police mode. Not sure if he's adding in the ability to read the IC trouble codes.

ELM327 isn't cheap.... i'm looking at doing a project with pic processor(s).

can the cluster actually be accessed from the OBD port?

ELM327 already is a PIC.

Actually, you can find them for $50 including shipping from China on eBay.

Curious that you say ELM isn't cheap. It's about as cheap as you can get for a tool that does all OBDII protocols. Compare that to the $3000 VCM from Ford, or a $500 all-protocol J2534 tool (Or $300 for a CAN/ISO tool which works on a BA, but not an AU), and it's awesome. Slow, but awesome.

But enough of the thread hijack. I'm curious to see what you can come up with.

it's time to start a new thread.
So the ELM327 is a pic processor based device with a usb interface??

The thread we're in for heavy duty OBD2 stuff using an ELM327 is here:

It's a Microchip pic 18f248.
