Default Lancer

Hi
Is Lancer diesel OBD compliant? Does anyone use ScanGuage in Lancer diesel?

Default Scanguage2

Yes<I also learned that lesson in a hard way.The Scanguage2 does not work in my Lancer GLX diesel and Baleno.I have also connected today in an INNOVA but no use.It just shows"CONNECTING".It was just a waste of my money.
Cheers

But the Digital Guages in scanguage give you real time engine data like RPM, Coolant Temp, Intake Air Temp, Throttle Position etc. And Im sure some of the car crazy members here would like to know whats exactly happening under their car's hood. Also the Scanguage is almost the size of 1-Din HU, and it can be mounted nicely on the dashboard, plus you can select the background colour of the screen like on some HU's, and select the data you want to be shown on screen. More details on ..ScanGaugeII - Scan Tool + Digital Gauges + Trip Computers

Sadly, it works on very few indian cars. And worse, on none of mine.

IIRC, Lancer diesel comes with a non-ECU controlled mill. Surprising about the Innova though.

Yeah, the OHC has an OBD port. I think it's OBD 1, though I'm not sure. Ford Rocam would be the best person to answer any OHC queries.

OHC seemed to be OBD-I. In my OHC VTEC the port is on the right of glove box, where the right knee of the passenger would touch the center console (A/C, Audio controls). It should be hooked up on the inner-side there with a light green rubber hook/cover.

Indian OHC are OBD-II B, OBDI you will find mostly on JDM 1.5Vtec Yr 92-95.

Almost all cars being sold in India comes with an ECU now, right from the M800 to the Bentley.
Not too sure about Mahindra jeeps though.

Hi everyone!

I got myself ScanGaugeII. It works great on the Ikon.

Hats off to SSS for his help on pointing out ScanGaugeII's compatibility and OBD port location in the Ikon.

Do you mean OBD-II or OBD-I?

But why would we need this? My Vtec has not had a single error in almost 50,000 kms. Like I said, no offence but I am really curious to know why.
I would never touch the engine stuff with these tools, but depending on the car and the tool you can tweak lot of things. If you use a tool called VAG-COM, you can do lot of cool things with VW family cars.
disable seat belt chime and tons of other warning chimes
lane change indicator number of flashes
disable delayed wiper blade stroke
adjust xenon focus settings
disable some irritating ESP features such as hill-hold assist
stiffness of the power steering
suspension settings (in high-end models)
more complex things :-)
in fact, if you don't like some feature.. u r likely to find a way to change it, without picking up a spanner! but of course, it is not for everyone and but then most things are fairly simple to do with lot of info on the net.

In India, it is not expensive to go to a dealer and get these tweaks done but in other countries the labour charges are steep so makes sense to buy one such tool.

Could you let me know where you got the Vag0-Com software? Would love to tinker with my Laura.

The VAG-COM software can be found here, Ross-Tech: VAG-COM

Here's a partial list of OBD-II software, both freeware and commercial, OBD-II Software Links | iRide Technologies, Mumbai, India

Please check your Laura for the OBD-ii protocol it uses though before purchasing any hardware or software.
