OBD 1 Software


Recommended Posts

'87 DeVille. I want a program so I can read/log the parameters on the computer system. I know how to use the onboard system, but seeing what is going on would be better. Any suggestions about a program? Thanks

Most automotive stores have a variety of scan tool; I am not sure which of those is better or worse.

I got a http://www.obdscan.net/ to use with my laptop for this.

The OBD will list the codes and allow some degree of user interface but there are certain things the GM scan tools will do such as cycle the ABS pump, etc. that cannot be done from the onboard diagnostics.

Since I first posted this, I've found a number of computer programs to do what I want. The ALDL cable is not inexpensive though!

Well, I thought I'd found what I want. Turns out that the software program has to be written specifically for the ECM/PROM/CALPAK....definitions. I have not found any that were written for mid-80's Cadillacs.
