Post Issues with Lotus Elise Dials 
I think I saw another post on this in the RCP forum but I'm getting the same issue with RCT.

All starts up OK but as soon as I add an OBD channel to monitor the dials on the Elise crap out. e.g. the Elise rev counter will go to 0 and kind of tick up and down a little.

I've tried enabling and disabling the various CAN options and just leaving OBD active, but again as soon as I add a channel to capture it craps out the cars dials again.

I've tried other OBDII adaptors, Kiwi3 and a GoPoint BT1 and get no issues reading OBD data, so seems RCT specific.

Any ideas as I'd really like to log some engine data as well as GPS\Accel data and don't really want to use something else to capture OBD\CAN info as I was looking for an all in 1 solution.

Thanks
Steve

Hi, What year Lotus elise are you using? Do you have the legacy adapter, or the CAN OBDII connection?

Itís a 2006 Elise 111r. So the Toyota engine version.

I think Iíve fixed the interference with the instrument cluster. It was the CAN bus speed. I found a post on a lotus forum that said it was 1k baud not the 500k default. So changed it to that and it seems fine now.

Just need to work out how to setup the CAN signals now.

Looks like RPM combines the values from 2 signals. Can that be done with the RCT without scripting ?

Are you currently pulling OBDII data, or the direct mapping from the instrument cluster?

Quite a while ago we mapped some data from an Elise; described here:
https://www.autosportlabs.com/pre-obd-ii-lotus-elise-you-can-data/

At that time, we mapped it using the Lua scripting instead of the now easier to use direct CAN mapping.

This might get you going with your own mapping. Let us know what you find out!

Started by pulling OBD data. Can get some although I think Iíve messed up the RPM mapping trying to get things working.

I did see that post so was going to use that to try and get the CAN info mapped as well.

Iím away at the moment so donít have access to the car. Iíll have another go when I get back in about a week.
