    Software On ELM Street
    [​IMG]


    SOE can be purchased directly from our website:
    Click HERE to Purchase Software on ELM Street!


    What does SOE do?
    SOE is an OBD2 engine diagnostic software that has been purely designed for Holden commodores. Its advanced dynamic parameter ID setup routines and Holden specific fault definitions topped off with a very user friendly interface make it the ultimate diagnostic solution for OBD2 Holdens.

    The sole purpose for SOE is to provide diagnostic information for Holdens. Every last feature has been built to support and work on commodores and is the only software available on the web that explicitly supports Holdens. Other softwares support various manufactures providing only very generic useless information, this is not very helpful when trying to repair a technical issue!

    SOE fully supports all Holden fault codes, freeze data and parameter ID's just like expensive mechanic tools. The big difference is SOE is affordable for the average joe, and provides a simple "one-click" interface making it a breeze to get connected and logging!

    Got a fault? Engine light constantly flashing and beeping? Or thinking of purchasing a new commodore?
    Then SOE is the tool for you! We recommend using this software to read out the current,history and pending faults of the vehicle.All of this information can indicate any immediate issues with a vehicle, as well as history issues, or even intermittent problems that may be reoccurring!


    Which vehicles are supported for SOE?
    Currently the supported OBD2 Holden Vehicles are:
    •VT V8 LS1 (ECU)
    •VX V8 LS1 (ECU)
    •VY V8 LS1 (ECU)
    •VZ V6 (ECU)
    •VZ V8 LS1 (ECU)
    •VZ V8 LS2 (ECU)
    •VE V6 (ECU)
    •VE V8 (ECU)


    What Cable do I need for Software on ELM Street?
    An ELM327 cable is required to use SOE which can be purchased from this link!.
    Purchasing one of our ELM327 cables also includes a license for SOE. We highly recommend using only our ELM cables to ensure 100% compatibility and a fully functioning cable!


    Why purchase from Envyous Customs?
    We are a 100% Australian company, All our cables are carefully examined by our manufacture before we receive them. Once received we thoroughly tested our ELM327 cables on multiple vehicles, computers and software's to ensure the cable is working 100% before dispatch.We strictly adhere to our testing procedures to ensure our customers receive only the best from us.
    Not all ELM cables are the same! There are 1000's of horror stories, or bad experiences of people purchasing an ebay $6 special to receive a cable that does not work, does not connect, or keeps dropping out! We guarantee our ELM327 cables work 100% from within Australia to prevent such frustrating experiences!

    Most importantly, all ELM327 purchases from us receive a free license to our Holden diagnostic software SOE which is the ONLY Holden dedicated software available to read all Holden specific fault codes and Holden specific engine data!


    What else can I do with an ELM327 cable?
    Currently, the ELM327 main purpose is to provide professional diagnostic capabilities utilizing our diagnostic software. But we also have another software called "Unlock My ECU" which is used for unlocking tuner locked ECU's to allow read/writing a tune in a previously locked ECU!.

    "Software on ELM Street" (SOE) is our Engine AND Transmission diagnostic software.

    "Unlock My ECU!" (UME) is our ECU unlocking software, capable of unlocking ALL tuner locked ECUs!


    Does SOE get updates?
    It definitely does! New features and information is constantly being added to SOE to provide the best user experience.


    What to do if you get stuck or confused getting setup?
    Customer service and quick support is something Envyous Customs prides itself on!
    If you have any questions, problems or just want to know more about OBD2 please send us an email! We will answer back as soon as possible and help where possible!

    Some answers to a few common questions I had for SOE:

    No this program is not VIN locked to one vehicle, it can be used on as many vehicles as you want!

    And the ECU unlocking is not instantaneous, it can take between 1-5days to unlock an ECU when brute forcing! And yes, your car battery WILL die without a charger or using a bench power supply!

    Feel free to keep asking questions! Ill answer as soon as I can.

    A little update. SOE will soon support a few more cables including our own modified ELM cable and the WIFI OBDLink MX cable.
    Our modified ELMs have additional circuitry added to them to provide support for all other in VE commodores.

    These two cables will allow communication with other modules in a VE commodore. This includes the SRS,ABS,Radio,IPC,Hvac,BCM ect.

    The next version will have full support for reading ALL fault codes for ALL of these modules! They will have FULL fault code descriptions!
    And to top it off, you will also be able to CLEAR these faults! Yes, this includes the SRS as well!

    If you have questions (Or even ideas!) then keep the PM's/messages rolling in!

    Software on ELM Street (SOE) has had a MAJOR update (v0.0.1.6), and now supports more engine data, more fault codes and now supports Transmission data!

    Not only that, it also now supports save/load/replay engine data! Allowing for fine control over replaying your live engine information to identify intermittent issues, track day performances and much more!

    Remember, All of our ELM327 cable purchases come with a license for Software on ELM street!

    Wow, and I mean wow! The recent feedback that SOE has been receiving has been fantastic, heres just a few of the many thats been sent through:

    "Im not great with computers but SOE was really easy to use! Keep up the good work!"

    "I wish I found SOE earlier, Holden charged twice its price just to read out the fault code and nothing else."

    "SOE to the rescue! Fixed the the fault within the day. Read out the fault, got replacement part from supercheap then cleared the fault. Very happy customer!"

    " I was skeptical at first cause I paid $90 for some other useless software called TOAD. But SOE did exactly what I wanted without and problems, thankyou for the honest product."

    "Thankyou for explaining which diagnostic cable and software I needed Jason. No-one else would give me a straight answer and was getting mixed answers between OBD1 or OBD2. Wanted something easy to use and received exactly that, will definitely buy your products again"

    Thanks for the feedback guys! SOE will have some minor updates rolling out soon to add in more engine and transmission data support as well as some other little technical bits and pieces.
    And within the next month, SOE will be hit with a MAJOR upgrade and restyle to optimize speed and ease-of-use!

    Hi Decksta,

    SOE has all the fault definitions possible in a VZ V6 ECU and TCM (Engine and transmission controllers). SOE uses Holden specific reading routines which allows it to read out those Holden specific faults and engine/transmission data. Other generic OBD2 software or even tools such as the supercheapauto obd2 scantool will not read these 'Holden specific' faults as they do not use the complex Holden routines to obtain them.

    Next, on startup SOE checks with your cars TCM to see which PIDs are supported. So what does that mean? Well it means there is no 'defined' supported PIDS for each car,ecu and tcm. SOE is smart software that actually detects which ones are supported in your vehicle and it is that list that you can choose from.

    Personally haven't used the OBDLink MX BT on SOE, so I cant give an exact answer on that.

    Being a scantool.net product, it should support everything needed. Its more the fact that its bluetooth which Im unsure how the 'lag' may affect the software as it was only intended for fast USB devices.

    At $100aud plus shipping from the U.S, its probably not worth the gamble. Youd go better just getting the full kit directly from my store. It also ends up much cheaper as getting the MX from the states plus shipping and SOE license will be upwards of $180+. In comparison to a full kit from my website at $80 plus shipping which includes a SOE license.

    In the end its up to you!

    Working on it guys.

    Will update SOE to have more stock tonight.

    But the ELMs are set as out of stock until my manufacture gets back to me with new stock. My current boxes of ELM stock have been recalled (Noone has been affected by this, these were unopened boxes) due to incorrect component soldered internally during manufacturing. This would have been picked up by myself as well when performing the testing on each unit as they would not have been able to communicate to anything.

    Hoping to have more stock of the ELMs shortly.

    Hi I'm looking at purchasing for diagnosing a few issues on my VZ Sv6 that are not showing codes.
    Can you please tell me if your software has the ability to unlink the ECU so a new one can be installed?

    I have an issue i have been unable to find an answer. I contacted Tazzi previously asking what i thought was a dumb question at the time...My SOE would no longer read trans outputs (vyss ute), no issue just curiosity after rebuild. I did manage to record one log file before the trans tab in SOE would not respond. Then after around 1000k's throws lean banks after coming back to idle following sustained run. I suspect i now understand the cause...i failed to do the idle reset after decoke on the TB. Anyway, i connect SOE, just because i find it soothing to watch the heartbeat and suddenly my laptop screen seems to be possessed. No control of the laptop when i try to connect. Screen freezes from alll the activity and all i can to stop it is pull the usb. Figure driver is probably the cause. I went FTDI and download latest drivers. Device mngr sees the cable. Uninstall/reinstall SOE. Now, the laptop behaves, but the message is can't find the port. Then on my daily drive i arrive at destination without drama. At lunch, jump in the car and drive ten metres and no drive. Trailer home, drive car off then no drive. Pressure test trans and all great for a few minutes of stationary gear shifting and then pressure drops. Turn off, wait 30 sec, start and all good again for same scenario. I would love to know what's going on electrically, but. My only trans log, now that i understand the reference points is noteworthy only for the PCS duty cycle which remained at an indicated 50-40% while driving a short distance. My pressure gauge says at around 1000rpm the trans has in excess of 200psi, which given the load is more than adequate. TPS chechs good.

    Have i somehow damaged the PCM, or is the trans side of the PCM kaput? Why does SOE go crazy when connecting? How can i check the PCM, if at all?

    VF SV6 STORM Series 1
    Hey Tazzi
    Using Software on ELM Street yesterday on our VF 2015 V6 Storm just to see if it reads OIL PRESSURE and I could not get it going. Might be doing something wrong as I could not get a reading. Now If it does work can you please give the path on how to do it. Trust me this is one of the Many things I have Forgotten after my stroke.

    The reason why I was testing the VF was to compare with,, as we now have a VE V6 and that has the Engine Light on and when I tested it using your programed the VE come up with PO521 which is OIL PRESSURE Sensor/range performance so I ordered a new one from ebay.

    Anyhow back the VF. Can you read the Oil Pressure on the Vf V6 using Software on ELM Street.
    Thanks
