Re: ODB replacement cable

I would have thought that for this application you would want to use signal ground. While they are at the same nominal potential signal ground should provide a less noisy signal for data. My car may be deficient in not providing a signal ground, but I don't understand why you would use chassis groun...

Re: ODB replacement cable

Yes the old cable still works. I used a short RJ45 extension and taped it to the old cable to overcome to broken catch. I now have a working, if inelegant system.

The system and cable were both purchased from Petrel Solostorm.
