I have been having car problems recently. However, these inspired me to dig a little into the car ECU. Most modern cars tap into this information and display it on the dashboard via on-board computers. Update September 9th, This is probably why I never managed to get it to work on my car. The device becomes available on a ttyUSB terminal and can be connected to and read from.
The screen manager, terminal emulator, allows one to connect to the device at a specific baud setting. The hardest part is usually getting the bauds right, otherwise the chip will not respond or will respond with gibberish.
The ELM datasheet says that in a normal state the baud rate is usually set to Bd Bd eom327 sleep mode. The setting is reset when the device is left without power. And by the way, I am not to be held responsible for whatever happens to your device or your car, proceed at your own risk.
The short AT commands list is of much help.
There are a lot of so called scanning tools, diagnostic software packages for Windows. But only a couple that should work under Linux.

I did want to play around with it from code, so the ELM would actually respond to automated requests, etc. Linux has a serial C library declared in termios. Compile by linking to libftdi. Note the libftdi requires root permissions to run, which is one of its disadvantages. Published 7 years ago by soulseekah with 35 comments tagged celmftdilinuxobdrs in Hardware. Thank You very much for this post!!! Paul, thanks for dropping by.
In my case, the pyobd Configuration screen does not display ttyUSBx devices due to wrong port-scanning formats. Thank You for answering! In my Configuration screen no options for choosing serial ports are available — wxPython The port is chosen via self.
Luke, a comment above explains the modification I had to do https: I used version 0. What kind of errors do you get?
Have you tried this fork: Thank for contributing fixes to that repository. I had to modify the code to even get it to report these errors, as it seems exceptions are handled differently dayasheet newer Python: What version of Python are you trying to run this on?
ELM to RS in Linux
I think I ran it on 2. The good news is that you do have the connection, so pyOBD is at least communicating. Bogus code might be raised by invalid bytes passed on caused by a non-matching baud rate. Keep me posted, please! On latest Ubuntu How would I trace the bytes over usb? Maybe we are using different versions? Other methods include the usbmon utility, which should be build-in.
This may not work, since RS is talked to in a completely different protocol and you might not see the actual serial ASCII bytes in their final form. Have you tried different baud rates? Do any of the LEDs on the device light up in any way when you type and hit return?
Try putting together a quick Python script using the serial libraries and send in some AT command like I did in C above. It must not be compatible?
ELM327 to RS232 in Linux
Have you tried different baud rates, bit parity settings, etc. AT commands have to work for sure. I have a bluetooth elm shopped at a Chinese website. After plug in and configure it, i datashee trying to communicate with the screen using the command as stated in the article with good results.
It was impossible to use with the pyodb. I suspect that due to the hardware version 1. Did anyone have a similar problem? Any help is welcome, congratulations for your blog.
Gabriel, thanks for stopping by. Have you tried out this fork of pyODB? Did the baud rate get set correctly?
Datashfet got gibberish too until I found the correct baud rate. Thank you for your quick response. I tried different connection speeds changing it in the source code pyodb but without success, I will continue investigating.
I will report if I have success Any idea to log the serial port communication? Gabriel, there appear to quite a bit of tools for serial and USB sniffing, including Wireshark. Check out sniff serial port on Linux and other similar questions around. What is the problem and if there is someone who can help me out.
Pierre, it is very hard to guess what may be wrong. The adapter itself, the ECU, the connections, the software. Have you tried low-level ttyUSB interfacing for testing instead of any software. Just talk to the device directly to see if it responds datasheeg screen or I think PuTTY does it too if you have no access to screen.
What I want to get is a constant stream of CAN bus. This might be the reason eml327 still I should at least see some lines before the buffer gets full. Akin, daatasheet can look at the datashwet list of supported commands and error messages here http: You can, by the way, issue an AT BD command to dump the current buffer.
Hope this helps, and let me know how it goes.
Use freely ELM327 !
I use minicom to communicate with the device. But it tells me Buffer full.
I will try to send the commands first with mini com, dxtasheet read the bus with a python script. All the docs and examples that I saw in internet are using ELM with request-answer based approaches thought. I seriously doubt that this device supports constant streaming. I datasjeet make additional tests…. I installed pyobd successfully and followed the steps presented on: Traceback most recent call last: I forgot where exactly, but if you grep through the files and look where the names are coming from you can actually just add your device directly.
This worked fine for me. Let me know how it goes. I fixed it by hardcoding the self. Does this work for you? There are a lot of ODB projects out right now, just do a Google search. Incorrect baudrates or bit parity is usually manifested as no datzsheet or garbage data. Does the adapter at least blink when dstasheet try typing something? Have you looked at the system logs?
What you can try to do is get access to a Windows machine eom327 see if it works there, to rule out the possibility of a faulty adapter. Ah, I see, thanks for letting me know.
I tried the same commands E. Could be a faulty adapter, a faulty cable, or something else hardware-related. If you figure it out let me know here. I have tried running this example https: Mail will not be published required.
