Post Repeating Freeze Frames
on: September 14, 2019 (GMT)

It’s my understanding that Torque records a freeze frame snapshot when a DTC is set.

I have four codes (one pending) yet have 25 freeze frames…. maybe more… I gave up after frame 25.

The reason I gave up is most freeze frames are identical.

I pulled them all on the same day. Lots of data, but this is how I am telling them apart.

Frame 00
Run time: 8s
RPM: 1409

Frame 01 through 15
Run time: 423s
RPM: 1604

Frame 16 through 25
Run time: 424s
RPM: 1612

Why does Torque create so many duplicate freeze frame pages?

Why does Torque not notate what code and / or date the freeze frame was recorded?

Thanks for any input.

I will likewise find responses from “the smart guys” instructive. I’m not sure why you are seeing 25 – as I had no idea that many could be saved.

HOWEVER. Torque Pro is not creating them. It only reads Freeze Frame Data from the PCM, who – stores the snapshot of various parameters at the instant a DTC is set. What throws me, is I’ve never seen more than three on my vehicle, and I ‘_ASSUMED_” the PCM stored them because of multiple DTC occurrences.

But 25 ???? How many is it capable of storing? Might be vehicle dependent.

It may even store or see more than 25… like I said, after 25 I just kinda quit looking.

What I am doing to find them is just keep hitting “next frame” and it brings up the next with a new number. I was sending each one individually via e-mail to myself. When I started putting them into a spreadsheet I began to notice the duplications.

Maybe I will clear the codes and see if I can track the freeze frame better / quicker when codes pop back up.
