    Hi guys,

    Today I tried to hook up my cheapo bluetooth ELM327 to my phone, just to see what Torque Lite (android application) can tell me about my car.

    Phone successfully connected to OBD adapter, but then it tried different communication protocols to get to talk to the ECU, but to no avail.

    Any of you successfully entered their ECU using some OBD adapter off internet ?
    What adapter/application/comm protocol did you use ?

    Cheers

    FWIW, after I tried Torque Lite with my ELM327, I now have
    - engine error
    - cruise control throwing error
    - gearbox stuck in S mode
    - parking brake error

    I'll see if they disappear after a few rides, else I'll drop her to the dealer and ask since when an OBD reader can cause an ECU to throw such errors...

    forgot to update ; Error just cleared after a few start up cycles. they were gone the same day :)

    You can try your ELM dongle, it might work. they are not all the same ;)

    Mine did not work for my previous subaru (impreza my2004), but if it did work for you on a subaru before, just give it a try ;)

    A colleague of mine bought himself an OBD-II bluetooth dongle to troubleshoot his Dacia. I tried his dongle today, and it worked !

    I bought myself a similar one, and once it arrives and I got it to work, I'll let you know what it is exactly ;)

    Some SAE J2534(PassThru) interface is needed.
    For example,that is openport 2.0.
