Hey guys,

This probably sounds strange but is it possible to wire an OBD-11 port onto a 1992 EB fairmont/falcon loom? as in if i take the OBD-11 port off of a later model falcon and try to wire it into my harness?

any info on whether this has been tried before or if it can or cant work is appreciated =)

cheers,
Joe

the whole OBD-2 things is in the ECU - if you swapped to a later model ECU you could by all means have an OBD 2 port

Thanks Jose,

Yea that makes sense, I am already going to put an EL ecu in it because it's better to tune using my J3 chip.

So would anyone have a wiring diagram from an EL that shows where the OBD-11 plug is wired into?

Cheers,
Joe

I was under the impression that OBD-11 was made mandatory in 1994? What was the first falcon to come out with OBD-11?

Only in the US.

BA was the first Falcon to get OBD2.

(AU has some bastard mixup OBD1.5 setup).


The answer is, no you can't add one to your EB, the question ow is, what were you wanting it for?

data_mine is correct as usual :P my obdII scanner for my bf won't read my au, not that i've tried, I just know it won't work.

On the sweeter side of the au it does have the dash minor diagnostics. Not sure about el's.

ahk thats annoying haha.. the main reason i want the OBD2 port is beacuase i want to get the Innovate Motorsport OT-2, this displays and records engine info via wifi on ur iphone.

i currently have an LM-1 and LMA-3 that i use to view and log data but id prefer it being wireless and on my phone haha. is their possibly a way i can try to wire it up to get this info or is it the modern ecu's that control this info and im just dreaming =S

You're dreaming.

OBD2 is something the ECU itself needs to support. The EEC4 and 5 don't. They use an older less functional diagnostics system.

The AU still has live data output. Monitoring it should be possible as I can do it with my
Carman Scan.
