    Default Tech2 OBD II Software

    Hi Guys

    I want to active the police mode on my 2002 VY commodore. Plus look up any error codes and have a general nose round the setup of the ECU

    I have the Tech2 OBD II cable for my computer, i have located the ECU socket under the steering wheel

    But not sure what software to download and use to do this? I have had a look at EFILive v4 but couldnt get it going.

    Any ideas would be great as i dont really want to go down and hassle the dealer.

    Thanks

    Adam

    V6 needs OBD I (ALDL) not OBD II I thought ?

    Mate waste of time playing with comp as it dont make it go any faster unless you work engine,do an engine conversion to a supercharged v6

    It's not about making it go harder, or sounding beast, it's about poking around.

    Yes you are right mate.
    From vz onwards its protocol is OBD II.

    To the op you need to make the OBD cable it uses OBD II connector but talks OBD I.

    Hi guys

    Thanks for the reply, im not interested in making the car faster, but enabling the police mode to get a permanent digital speedo, and also looking at any error codes the car has or may get in the future, will also be interesting to have a look at the other settings in there.

    So my Tech2 OBDII cable is no good for the VY 02?

    Thanks

    That is correct - (no good for VY V6). Also, I don't think police mode is DIY possible, consumer OBD tools can only read info.

    Yep, you either need to see Holden and get them to enable police mode, or phreddy from ASR can do it too. My Holden dealer did it for free.

    The OBDII plug is the same as an OBDI plug (what your car needs), it's just the language/ speed the tech talks to your car in is different.

    Go with the cable and find the correct software to talk 8192BAUD. Send me a pm and I'll link you up

    Do a single turbo correctly and you will see why.

    OBD 1 and 2 cables have different circuitry - it's not just a matter of changing software.
