Define battery health

And how that could be possible to monitor

just wondering what you have in mind ??

And i highly suspect the answer is no

Not sure. If it is holding a charge, getting recharged ok, not too many demands for power if engine is off.

nothing is monitoring the power draw or battery state

the only thing you can see is voltage.. that is not a big indicator..unless it’s way off

I can’t find any way of monitoring the Battery voltage in the Torque PIDs although I have seen the gauge on Youtube videos.
Is it a custom plug in?

Live in Bath in the UK. An engineer by trade. Used to build and repair cars and motorcycles as a hobby but as I’ve got older tend to buy newer vehicles now but still like to do the occasional work and upgrades.
Come across much PLC controlled machinery at work and trying to come to grips with automotive electronic control thus the Torque app.

Torque Pro has two displays…

Voltage (Control Module)

Voltage (OBD Adapter)

as well as others in predefined pids
depending on vehicle type.

Should be able to monitor voltage
with key on engine off, then key on
engine running.

I actually had an experience with bad
“new” battery where the shop tech tried
to blame my problem on the alternator
after looking at his test equipment with
engine off. (11.5V).

I showed him my Torque dashboard of
14.5V which I was monitoring the
whole time with engine running. Needless
to say new warranty replacement battery
has had no problems since then :-)
