Post 98 Jeep ZJ
on: October 1, 2014 (GMT)

Hi All,

New user of Torque on a 1998 Jeep Grand Cherokee 4.0L using the scantool.net OBDLink LX Bluetooth Scan Tool. I have a few quick questions:

1.) When I download my trip from the web viewer the session and time column look very strange what are the units for time?

2.) I can not get any of the Jeep transmission temp readouts to showup is this because I have the LX and not the MX?

3.) Is there anyway to connect external sensors to Torque for display and datalogging?

If no to number 3 I was planning on building a AFR meter using the Bosch LSU 4.9 sensor and their driver chip + arduino or similar for logging. I could also use a Bluetooth shield to transmit the data but can Torque be configured to read information from another Bluetooth source using the plugin system? Or would that require a code change to the main app?

I was thinking it would be neat to have two tabs on the list of parameters for display/ logging, first tab OBD/phone sourced, second tab externally sourced. Could even make the device into a standard unit with the ability to add different kinds of sensors (temperature, pressure etc) for things not available over OBDII.

If Ian wants to specify a Bluetooth communication protocol to follow that can be easily done.

Thoughts/Comments?

Cheers

Chris

1. ?

2. To my knowledge a pid for early Jeep TFT
has not been found yet.

3. PLX has a system for adding external sensors
using its adapter to talk thru OBDII. Ian was working
on getting Torque to support this hardware.

Any ZJ guys find the PID for Transmission Temp yet?
