So I figured I would bring the diesel pids to the mobile world, and I need testers!

As a requirement you will need the torque pro app and a scanner, which can run between 5 and 50 dollars.

After you have that you will need to shoot me a PM with your Google Play email address. I will then send you a link and you can install the app. Then open up the torque app, open up the app, press the big button, go back, go to settings, add the custom PID group, and then go add your choice of pids to your dashboard.

What sort of custom PIDs?

All the sae pids you get with torque plus
DPF Regen Status
Soot Mass
Dpf Pressure
VGT position
Desired Boost
Balance Rates
A real fuel rate
Engine Torque
ALL 5 EGT sensors

And some other things... But those are the big ones. You will be testing them to make sure they aren't off, and in exchange you will get the app for free (which is going to be spendy so it's a pretty good deal).

The problem is Apple's bluetooth is quite restrictive. To get the serial communication to work you eitheir need to jail break, use WiFi, or pay Apple lots of money for a chip.

The obd reader I have for my iPhone uses wifi not Bluetooth. It was like 15 dollars. It's kind of a pain though because anytime you are connected to the reader you have no internet access.

I'm interested, can you shoot a link for the specific scanner needed? Currently I have Ultragage, and yet to be installed ScanGuage 2. I like the Bluetooth functionality of the Ultragage, but it doesn't have all the Diesel specific items you mention here, some, but not all. My attempts to create custom gauges have as yet been unsuccessful. I also have 2 Cruze Diesels to test with.

I would get obdlink lx off amazon. It's definitely spendy at 50 dollars but it's low profile and is very smart about not draining battery.

First version is out now :). I'll still take some more testers for a few more days.

Second version is out now, which fixes a few PIDs (bad math) and adds some new ones.

OP-

Your the first I've seen really get into the PID's for the cruze. Is there anything that you're aware of that expands Cruze support for the 1.4L gasser?

Other than the list of GM extended PID's that are part of the full Torque version?

I have the bluetooth adapter, but I don't have a diesel :-(

In theory something may work, but it's definitely not my area of expertise.


I can make these work simply because I have been working witwh the engine so long they just stand out... Not so much with the 1.4L.

There are alot of PIDs defined... About 400. Now what each one does is a bit of a mystery (although some are SAE defined) or you pay lots of money to GM for the info, but I'm not that lucky.

Just ordered it, thanks. Look forward to testing. Having 2 CTDs to work with.

Apparently there is an 'issue' that will cause the PIDs to clear themselves after some time...

I put issue in quotes because frankly the issue isn't anything to do with me, it's Torque. It's not a very good design.

You see this crap

if (c > 77 && c < 91)
c -= 13;
else if (c > 64 && c < 78)
c += 13;
else if (c > 96 && c < 110)
c += 13;
else if (c < 123 && c > 109)
c -= 13;
else if (c >= '0' && c <= '4')
c+= 5;
else if (c >= '5' && c <= '9')
c-= 5;

Yeah you want to know what this crap is? This is something they call encryption! (I don't even... Like... What????)

There's some other stuff too that's almost as bad, but I won't release those due to copy concerns...

Documented absolutely nowhere. Had I of known beforehand it was going to be this bad, I wouldn't of proceeded with making this plugin. I even tried contacting the dev but no luck there. This was suppose to be relatively simple code now turned into complicated mess and hacks.

If you aren't following me, here is a .gif to get the situation across.




Anyway I know what needs to be done, just more code...

I just got mine working, haven't seen the PID clear issue, yet.

I rolled out the rework a few hours after that post.

Do you still want testers?
I'll probably keep taking testers until it's released (which will probably be next week sometime..).

So.. the adapter I got appears to have drained the battery! Worse, it wouldn't remote start.. and almost would would not start with the key. Then when it did start, I have U0101, TCM will not communicate with the ECU. The traction control light is lit, as well as power steering. The tach was fluctuating... So I unplugged OBDlink LX... And tach stopped fluctuating! It clearly was affecting the car. I used my Ultragage adapter to get the code.

Once in a while, leaving an OBD device plugged in will cause my turn signal to wig out or other BCM-related functions to go haywire. Seems to vary from incident to incident. Must be a common thing with our electronics. A lot of your warning lights sound related to the low battery voltage after the drain.

I've been using Ultragage blue without any problems, plugged in always, 2 different cars. I couldn't figure out how to program the custom gauges for PM, Regen, etc. If I could, I have to say Ultragage is a tested and proven product. I don't trust this new adapter now. I might be returning it to Amazon, anyone have suggestions for other adapters.. maybe I just got a bad one?
