Car Scanner ELM OBD2 App

Car Scanner ELM OBD2 App: Adding PIDs

How do you enter an extra PID to your Car Scanner ELM OBD2 app? Here’s how to do it:

The Steps

  1. Make sure you connect your OBD2 scan tool to your app. Go to “Settings”, “Connection”, and “Choose Connection Profile”. Search and choose the vehicle brand you have.
    You might find a few options to choose from already. Try these first, as you might already find the setting you are looking for here.
  2. If you can’t still find what you’re looking for, then return to the home page. Click on “Settings” and look for “Sensors”.
  3. Click the “+” button and choose “New PID”.
  4. Enter the data PID data you researched on or that we provided (i.e. Name, Short Name, Command, Header, Decode Scheme, Formula, Min./Max. Value, Units, Priority). Click on “Test”.

Update your Car Scanner ELM OBD2 app dashboard

To update your DASHBOARD to display the new setting you got, then you need to:

  1. Go to your home screen and click on “Dashboard”.
  2. Tick the gear button (on top of the page) and choose “Customize page”.
  3. On the list of “Items”, click on the gear button on one of the options available.
  4. The Item Editor page should appear. Click on the entry for “Sensor” and search for the gauge you want to add.

When you enter extra PIDs on your Car Scanner ELM OBD2 app, you get access to vehicle data not readily displayed by default on your OBD2 Bluetooth scan tool. These include transmission temperature, exhaust temperature, DPF soot load, tyre pressure, fuel rail pressure, among others.

However, these data may not be displayed on your car as the compatibility of PIDs depend on the brand, model, and make of a vehicle.
