Something I found as an update for this thread.

CarChip OBDII Data Logger

Last page of documentation lists protocols supported but could not find what the ConsultII protocol is in the ESM.

Re: Nissan Consult & ECU Readers


While on a trip to the USA I came across a "Pepboys" (like our "SuperCheap Autos" stores) brochure which had an "ACTRON" OBD-II reader for sale for a riduculously low price. It turns out it's a superceded model, and I couldn't tell if it would be compatible with our ECU (and I wasn't going to spend a heap of money to find out that it didn't!).

http://www.actron.com is their website. The PepBoys brochure states the (I can't remember the model number but I couldn't find it on the Actron website, thus the assumed "superceded model" I mentioned earlier) sells for US$139.99 and on special for $109.98 (then another $20 off with mail-in rebate).

http://www.pepboys.com might have a downloadable brochure...

If the overheating problem sends an error code to the ECU when it happens, then the ECU reader will pick it up and it will be one of the error codes listed HERE

============================================

Has anyone ever looked at tools to interrogate the ECU like

http://www.autoenginuity.com//products-scantoolppc.html

The release notes http://www.autoenginuity.com/dloads/release_notes.txt

Indicate:

 
"*** Nissan
• Added text sensor reporting for all bit and mode sensors
• Added X-Trail model support
• Added support for Airbag Diagnostic Record translating the DTCs into full text descriptions
• Fixed Nissan Airbag DTCs not reporting with a certain DTC count size
• Fixed Nissan Idle Air Learn system test reporting failed to complete, yet the request would complete
• Fixed Nissan CAN ABS front wheel speed sensors being swap right and left"

In the mid term I am interested in a CarPC project that may include connection to the ECU for remote diagnostics. I have a programming background in remote telementry projects and different device protocols.

RodX.

Hi Rod,

As you can see in this thread, there are available software and hardware which you can run from your laptop to read the ECU, but I am yet to find the software that would enable me to change the ECU maps and all that. This has been kept a tight secret by Nissan for over 7 years now and no one has managed to crack it just yet.

As for the CarPc project, you may want to check out a fully functional one now available for sale on our forum HERE

Please refer to an existing CarPc thread that is linked there.

Re: Nissan Consult & ECU Readers


Thanks for the heads up. Still getting my head around all this.

My old B series landcruiser was pretty primitive but did 500,000kms without missing a beat so if I get half that out of the exy Ill be pretty happy.

Well, there's a coincedence for ya.

I've just had an order placed to do signage on the vehicles of the Aust Distributor of these products

I don't know anything about the product or the company, but is this the same type of equipment you blokes are talking about ?
The local dist is on a link on top of the RH side bar.

THIS is the direct link to the Australian Distributor.

Re: Nissan Consult & ECU Readers


It seems there has been a few issues with usb to serial converters,

I can shed some light on why...

Standard serial ports have the capability of 12 and 5vdc supply, though there are many standards.

usb can only supply 5vdc, and thus the converter is restircted to this as well.

The ELM devices just seem to need that extra voltage.

I'll get round to bridging the 12v lines from the obd port to supply the ELM one day, and if it works I'll post my workaround here.

In addition - www.pinouts.ru is an excelent resource if you get stuck for wiring.
