General OBD Questions / Re: Window 10 drivers

It sounds like the installation might have become corrupted before or after downloading. Can you try downloading it again, potentially using another internet browser?
OBDLink LX Bluetooth / BMW e39 - Engine Failsafe Mode?
« Last post by Rotator on August 22, 2016, 07:34:30 AM »
I have intermittent issues with an e39 BMW M5.
Logging with a OBDLink LX Bluetooth to an Android Sampung phone I have had the car enter an Emergency Program - ENGINE FAILSAFE MODE (Fail-safe). 
From the technical manual - I believe it is Emergency Program #4

EMERGENCY PROGRAM #4. - Engine operation with a control module internal fault. The
engine’s output torque is limited to 250 NM and the speed is limited to 35 MPH. Depending
on the degree of the fault, the control module with the dual processors will enable limited
engine operation.

Occurs on different applications, and phones.
What is strange is it doesn't happen all of the time.  I've run it during track days without issue.
I tried limiting to just a couple PID's - RPM, and Fuel Flow.
Then just one PID - RPM
2001 BMW E39 M5
Engine S62 B50
DME MSS52 (Siemens)

Apps -
Race Chrono
Torque  - Faster Communication on or off.
Samsung Galaxy S3, NOTE 4

Really not ideal when trying to merge onto a highway.
General OBD Questions / Turn Signal
« Last post by EltiLand on August 22, 2016, 07:16:51 AM »

Is the turn signal message sent using OBDII protocol? I want to read the turn signal status and I'm not sure whether the message is sent via OBDII.
Is it right that there are a few protocols being used on the CAN bus?
Sorry for the newbish question.. I'm new here.
hum that's a bummer.

is that specific to the  LX dongle or would other versions (MX) or brands be affected as well? I'm not really that handy and would rather not mess with the hardware.
OBDLink SX / Wrong CAN Message after the Command STM

Hello Guys,,

I have a problem, i monitor a specific channel and when I get a specific CAN message i want to send a specific CAN command.
All the messages i send appear properly, although the message the pbdlink sends after the end of STM command is not correct

The commands i use for the monitor of the channel is


Developer Forum / Programmable Parameters 00, 01 seem to do nothing.

I've found what I think are a few bugs in the AT commandset.  I have been trying to configure the programmable parameter set so the adapter will always behave in the same predictable manner without requiring a bunch of initialization commands every time I open a connection.  Because the WiFi version automatically disconnects if it thinks there was 10 seconds of inactivity, the programmable parameter features need to behave in accordance with the documentation (STN1100-FRMP).  While I can definitely update the PP data, and verify that the settings have been accepted via the ATTPPS command, I have noticed that the adapter does not actually DO what it has been configured to do.  It maintains the factory-default behavior and ignores these settings.

// Perform ATMA after power up or reset
ATPP 00 SV 00
// Result - This does absolutely nothing

// Printing of header bytes (ATH1)
ATPP 01 SV 00
// Result - This does absolutely nothing

I have performed both a physical power off (removing the adapter) as well as the ATZ command and verified there is no difference in behavior.
The LX might be interfering with one of the other systems.
I'm not sure if the Corsa is 100% obd2 compliant.
If your handy, You  could buy an extension cable and modify it to only connect the pins for your ecu.  (Iso 15765-4-) But this would be at your own risk.

This would basically isolate the unwanted  protocols on the LX without having to modify the tool.

96 was right at the beginning of obd2.
I'll see if i can figure anything out.
I'll do a little research and IF i find any info I'll let you know.
