Default re: OBD (On-board diagnostics) for Indian Cars

I have another problem to tackle here.

I bought the ELM 327 bluetooth device from DX in December.

OBDII Bluetooth Car Diagnostic Cable - Black + Blue + Orange (DC 12V) - Free Shipping - DealExtreme

The SW CD shipped broke during shipment. I have been chasing DX to provide me the SW since then. They provide link to a chinese website, but the software which is available their is some internet TV.

Can someone who has this product share the SW with me. Thanks

Had a problem with my Tata Indigo.Warning light is coming on intermittently. The speedometer needle suddenly dives to zero, stay there for a while then shoots up again. At times I saw it shoot up even when the car was stationary. Just to find out I had connected my lap top through the blue tooth ELM327 and found a fault with the speed sensor. Tata techs say they have to change it. Could just be a loose connector somewhere. Wish I knew the location of the sensor could just check by pressing connectors in place. For now everything is working fine. Lets see in a few days.
Anyways here are some screen shots I took while I was connected.

First, get the Idle air control valve & EGR checked. Then, proceed to other problems.Get these inspected as as soon as possible. Intermittent O/P of speed sensor can most probably be a loose/cut wire.

I wish Maruti cars came with this. Back at the service station, they still use that rudimentary 7 segment, single line black & white 'Tech2' scanner that can display only codes. Your device is as comprehensive as they come in troubleshooting

I got a ELM327 OBD II device from eBay (17$ with free shipping) , it is the same as the device in DealXtreme.
Got it on 30th June and it is not connecting to my Samsung Galaxy Ace with Torque App.

I have a 2009 Ritz Lxi.Plugged the device into the OBD II port and the lights light up on the device for 1-2 seconds , after that only the power light is steadily lit.The device shows up as CBT on the bluetooth menu and i am able to pair it using passcode 1234 ,Torque app also recognizes it , but does not connect. On Torque app , i have selected the device and it says " Connecting to OBD interface " and keeps going on and on .

Tried for nearly 3 hours and could not get it to connect.

I do not know if it is an issue with :-
1. The settings in Torque
2. The ELM 327 Adapter
3. My car ( Ritz Lxi 2009 )

Any tips/suggestions ??

Did you go under settings in torque to identify the device as ELM?
I think someone else was having the same probelm in the last page.
Have a look at that.

Mayank , kimified had that issue , I have selected the device in the " Bluetooth Preferences" also and yet it would not connect.

Has anyone tried using this adapter+torque for the petrol Ritz , if so , please share the settings , I am so sure something is wrong , but i don know what .Also i have Gingerbread custom ROM rooted ( I don think that would be an issue ).

Hi Rajan,

I'm not sure, but If I remember it right, the ELM327 + Torque combo does not work for '09 Ritz. I may be wrong though. Have you tried OBD Scope?

If the Ritz in question has K series engine it will work. If not it wouldn't.

Nope , I have not tried OBD Scope , but tried alOBD Scanner , and few other free OBD apps from the Android Market, but none of them work.

Archat , the Ritz in question has a K series engine . AFAIK , all petrol Ritz have a K-series engine. It is the first car with the 1.2L K series engine from MSIL.

None of the lights on the device light up except the power light which is steadily lit. Anyone using this ELM 327 device , do any of the other lights light up when the adapter is plugged in ?

^^ Try with your laptop and try a software like scantool.net, OBDwiz and set the communication speed to 9600 and try. Also try forcing the OBDII protocol to ISO 9141-2 or ISO14230-4 KWP2000 (fast init).

I succeeded to initiate communication with my 2008 Swift D after forcing the ISO14230-4 KWP2000 (fast init) protocol and turning off the keyword checking off. But soon after my ELM 327 scanner broke.

Also, try hyperterminal or a terminal program like Putty and try to communicate with the ELM327.

i read some place that the passcode is 6789 and should be printed somewhere on the device itself.

Try it.

Does any one of the ELM or other devices support K-Line? Apparently Safari DICOR 3L supports only K-Line, and not regular OBD.

K-Line (ISO 14229/14230) is one of the standard signalling protocols that is permitted by OBD-II. I wonder why this will not be supported by OBD scanners.

What is meant by regular OBD?

According to my friend, EOBD (OBDII) was not implemented in the old Delphi ECU.

So, if K-Line is one of the standard protocols under OBDII, ELM327 should be able to hook on, right? Has anyone tried it on a Safari Dicor?
