I am hooked up to OBDII through the classic adapter, no CAN bus on this car. Does this still apply?

Monitoring OBDII Traffic

I have a 2005 vehicle, that uses OBDII. I have the classic adapter and I can get the standard PIDs to show up in the RaceCapture software. I also have a DiabloSport Trinity that has access to the enhanced Chrysler PIDs. I have seen OBDII splitters, which makes me wonder if there's a way to hook the ...

Somewhat related, but I use FreedomPop for my cell phone. I have had it for nearly two years now and it has been a pretty good service. The one thing I will caution is that if you ever need support from them, good luck. But, you get what you pay for!

It doesn't help your situation but I have a similar setup except I just wired the brake switch on my car to an analog input. Anything over zero and I know the pedal is being pressed. The brake switch on my car has a 12 volt signal.

The problem is almost certainly two onTick functions. Get rid of the top onTick function function onTick() getcoolantTemp() updateFuelAvg(getAnalog(0)) end The onTick method is what the Lua engine executes every N (the value of setTick) milliseconds. Defining it twice...

The example script has this implemented. function sxOnBut(b) --called if the button state changes println('button: ' ..b) end This is where it is called: function sxChkCan() id,ext,data=rxCAN(sxCan,0) if id==sxCanId then sxInit() end if id==sxCanId+60 and sxOnBut~=nil then sxOnBut(data[1]) end end

I have not tried that. I've screwed around with this enough and now that I have a working solution I'm inclined to just leave well enough alone. As for where I saw that, it is here: https://wiki.autosportlabs.com/RaceCapt ... nput_1_-_3

The log is just a simple csv file. You configure the rate you want each channel logged in the RaceCapture app by selecting the frequency. It is sparsely populated in that you will see empty entries for slow logging channels. Here is a sample from one of my logs (I truncated the first line so it woul...

Logging is handled by the RaceCapture device, you don't need to do anything other than starting and stopping it. You do that by using lua to start and stop the log or by pushing the button on the unit. It will log all the channels you have setup. The print and println functions are for debugging whe...

I am pretty sure I am just missing a setting in the RCP to make this work. I hooked up an Arduino with a 22k resistor on the input, wrote a little bit of code and I am able to get the ethanol content from the Arduino. For whatever reason, no matter what settings I try, I can't get a value other than...

You can cut one of the ends off the RJ45 cable that connects the OBDII adapter to the RaceCapture and then put on a new end. Before adding the new end cut the wire that goes into pin 8 on the connector. Pin 8 is typically the brown wire.

It seems as though the blending of e85 in my area has become very inconsistent so I would like to revisit this. My first question is will this work with the RCP? Right now I have it hooked up to one of the Pulse inputs. Here is some documentation on the sensor and the requirements. http://creativeio...
