This is a great post, and Ive just figured who thi sguy is ive been following his kits on FB for while now.
Will the kits read my apexi Fc now that would be a worthy purchase
Unfortunately my box thing will not connect to Apexi Power FC. They are a replacement ECU and as such I do not believe the data that comes out the ECU 14 pin diagnostic port is readable by me. This is probably why they have created the Apexi FC hand commander.
My box will work with standard ecu and nistune (including mapping). And it should work with any other piggy back ECU because the data provided through diagnostic port will (in theory) be standard Nissan OBD1 code.
I have simply combined the principles of these two devices in to one easy to use box. (Currently £50+post.)
plms USB = $95 AUS+shipping and VAT
and trackelectronics bluetooth = ~$95 AUS+ship+VAT, (I say '~$95' as at the time of writing this their website does not work...)
Early 90's nissans OBD1 with the grey 14 pin plug are all readable by my bluetooth/USB box of tricks on Android and windows, unlikely to ever be compatible with iOS...
If you see any OBD scanners that claim they can do OBD1 and OBD2 then run a mile. It is not possible they are two different languages. The error comes from some later 90's nissans had an OBD2 ecu but still had the same OBD1 grey socket in the fuse box. So you would then need an OBD2 scanner with OBD1 socket adapter.
Modern cars - 2002 petrol and 2004 diesel onwards... all had to be OBD2 compliant to meet USA and eventually European type approval. This is why you can get OBD2 scanners for £5 off ebay. They work really well on all OBD2 cars.
OBD1 data was a big free for all. No manufacturer's followed the same principles for their hardware/software, most hid it away and charged daft money to hook your car up to a computer.
Nissan's OBD1 code was fully available like 25 years ago -
I will write a separate thread properly some time in the next couple of days...
