Trans temp in Torque Pro - OBDII...anyone try this?

I found this in a Tacoma and then a Tundra forum, but didn't find it here....maybe I didn't search long enough.

Anyone using this with Torque Pro? I'm going to try it sometime soon.

Trans temp settings for Toyota / Torque Pro:

For pre 2010 cars (all equations copied from the thread at the Torque forum)

In Torque enter:

OBD2 Mode and PID:
21d9
Long Name:
Transmission Fluid Temperature 1 (or what you like)
Short Name:
Trans 1
Minimum Value:
0.0
Maximum value:
300.0
Scale factor:
x1
Unit Type:
F (or alternatively C is you use the second equation below)

Equation:
((((E*256)+F) * (7/100) 400)/10) for output in F


or alternatively


(((((E*256)+F) * (7/100) 400)/10) 32) * (5/9) for output in C


OBD Header to use:
left blank

For 2010+ cars (do not own one, so I have not tested this)

OBD2 Mode and PID:
2182 (NOTE DIFFERENT PID for newer Toyotas)
Long Name:
Transmission Fluid Temperature 1
Short Name:
Trans 1
Minimum Value:
0.0
Maximum value:
300.0
Scale factor:
x1
Unit Type:
F
Equation:
((((A*256)+B) * (7/100) 400)/10)


you can also convert this equation to C as above



OBD Header to use:
left blank

I have the app, but I have a 2012. Curious as to how it works for the earlier years.

You could try the 2010+ setup above.

I just tried the pre 2010 setup and it works! Sitting at idle, warm engine, the trans was running about 147 degrees. Sounds about right, since the fluid is flowing through the radiator.

Re: Trans temp in Torque Pro - OBDII...anyone try this?

I used the 2010+ code in my 2013 and it appears to be working. No way to independently verify if the temperature it is displaying is correct, but it is producing a reading. This morning it was giving about 145 degree F trans temp with the water temp being about 180.

sbarr -

You stated that you "used the 2010+ code in my 2013..".

Where did you locate the PID info for the 2010+ models?

I need to get setup to monitor transmission temp on a 2014 FJ.

Also, what hardware did you use to interface with the OBD-II system? A plug-in Bluetooth module? If so, which one?

Re: Trans temp in Torque Pro - OBDII...anyone try this?

Hi FJTest,
The PID is the one listed in the code (2182).

A bluetooth enabled ELM327 reader is the way to go. This is what I have, but there are many others.....but they are all pretty much the same.

Amazon.com: ELM 327 Bluetooth Obdii Obd2 Diagnostic Scanner, Elm327 Wireless OBD 2 Scan Tool Check Engine Light CAR Code Reader: Automotive

Re: Trans temp in Torque Pro - OBDII...anyone try this?

So I got one of the ELM327 Bluetooth dongles from amazon... it's worked a grand total of 2 times. It paired with my phone no problem... worked... then stopped giving me readings... then worked again... now it's not....

My guess is I ended up with a knockoff and with my luck it was built on a Friday afternoon or the lighting in the sweat shop in that particular corner wasn't great.

Does anyone know how to ensure I am buying a legit piece?

I'm guessing these are the guys that originally made them?.....
http://www.amazon.com/Beelike-ELM327...9861072&sr=1-1

.... but in the wide world of Amazon... how do you ensure it's from them and not a cheap knockoff? They're all inexpensive...

Suck it up... it's only -40

Re: Trans temp in Torque Pro - OBDII...anyone try this?

WP - I'd recommend the BAFX dongle.

It's worked flawlessly with every Toyota vehicle I've attached it to, and paired flawlessly with every Bluetooth device I've tried. I've been using it nearly continuously for months without any issues .

It also has by far the highest positive feedback of all the similar units on Amazon , so others have had similar experience to what I have had .

I also bought a physically "shorter" dongle that would be a better fit in my 3rd Gen 4Runner, with its vertically-oriented OBD-II connector, but although it appears to have "connected" with the vehicle's ECU, and paired with my Android devices, I could never get it to transfer data. I'll stick with the "proven" BAFX unit.

Re: Trans temp in Torque Pro - OBDII...anyone try this?

Thx!

When I do a search for just "bafx" a few different varieties comes up....
Do I just pick the most expensive one?
http://www.amazon.ca/Bluetooth-CAN-B...&keywords=bafx

Sorry for needing the handholding but I don't see the difference on Amazon and I already have one $20 paperweight.
