Re: Thread of my dumb questions about ScanGauge

Anyone else have a scangauge that randomly resets? It was doing it with the cord plugged into the back port, so I remounted it to use the side port.
Twice this week it has reset with the cord in the side port so Idk.

By reset I mean I have to go thru the whole setup again, and its a bummer holding down the button to get to 149 gallon capacity.

Question Re: Thread of my dumb questions about ScanGauge

Thread of my dumb questions about ScanGauge - Looks like the best place as to where this question should be posted.

A question just because I am curious. Can you modify the preset gauge parameters? Has anyone used a provisional power supply to activate the ScanGauge II and then run a CAT5 to the computer and try to peak inside? Always wondering 'How does it do that'? Would it work just plugging in the second slot or would that be reading what is coming from the OBD? Well if it does then I guess there is software out there that will let me make seance out of what the computer is seeing.

Re: Thread of my dumb questions about ScanGauge

I got another one too.

Is the scangauge ICE OFF coasting friendly? I've noticed the dash on the xB will count mileage, but not change the FE reading while coasting. Havent put the Scan gauge in the xB yet.

when you set it up and get to fuel type set that to Hybrid and will continue to keep track when engine is off and key is on.

Your 99 is more than likely VPW but you can make sure by hitting MORE> MORE> and seeing what it displays for the MODE.

missed that reply, thanks.




Also, thinking out loud here but if anyone knows:

SG gets all its readings from ECM.

van odometer & speedo are pretty close to accurate with 245/75/16.

Just switched to 265/75/16 for winter and I know the speedo/odo will be off, as will MPG readings on SG.

So, if I reprogram the ecm for the correct tire size the SG will be back to calibrated?

Finally going to get off my wallet and buy the vin license so I can reprogram ecm in van. Hopefully this weekend.
