G'day again.

I've been researching and googling for a scantool that will read and reset ECU, Airbags, Engine and Transmission.

Next door neighbour tried to use a scantool for my car but could not connect to ECU. I was under the impression AUII is OBDII, however, it appears not and may well be OBDI.

How does one tell the difference.

I am attaching a photo of the OBD socket, perhaps somone on this forum who has an identical car and has successfully used a scantool onthis vehicle.

Cheers

I believe the AU used it's own version somewhat of a OBD1.5. There is a thread around this forum 'scantool fun' the last few posts discuss use of an elm scanner with au's.

*edit. just checked and it's in the b series forum so you might not have found it:

Thanks mate, I'll check it out. I've checked many of similar topics but never quite covered the problem I have.

Cheers

There is software called FORScan that works on the AUII with any ELM327 Scantool.

The best thing the software is free and wriiten for Fords/Mazdas

Live data, Clear Codes

Hi Guys,

I was given this information from GLM Software about the ELM327 chip

"The ELM327 chipped scan tool is capable of reading your DTCs, but the commands you send to read them are not OBDII commands, they are proprietary mode 22 commands"

The ELM327 returns all results in hexadecimal format, therefore you would need to convert those values before they became human readable"

Is this correct? If so, what did you use to covert this hexidecimal format into something that I can read without the gobligook.

As I will be using the software called FORScan, do I need anything else apart from a laptop and the ELM327 ScanTool?

Thanks

FORscan does the hard work mate.... the elm, a lap top and the car were the only things I used with minimal computer knowledge.

Thanks mate, that's what I needed to know, too easy.

I received my scatool today, just need to borrow a laptop and install FORscan software.

Cheers
