These may be Type OBD-I. Therefore scantool will not work.

Your Daewoo Matiz is an ALDL ( Assembly Line Diagnostic Link ) protocol vehicle and supports the GM ALDL protocol.

We have a package with the correct 12 pin plug and cable to interface, ECU - RS232 interpreter interface and either  RS232 9 pin cable or USB cable to suit your computer.

The package comes complete with software and sells for AUD 495.00.

The software has the configuration files for the Daewoo vehicles as well as a vast range of US and UK GM vehicles, Australian Commodore vehicles dating back to 1988 and other vehicles that were built using the GM ECU's such as Fiat 124 Spider.

Regards   Paul. ;)

I forgot to mention that, although your ECU was manufactured by Siemens, it conforms to the GM protocol and effectively is the same as the Delco unit made for other vehicles.

Also, although the protocol is ALDL, it is also referred to as OBD1.

There are some vehicles that have been built with the same 16 pin diagnostic link as OBD2 compliant ones but also are ALDL. This has fooled many a person who has bought an OBD2 scan tool only to find that it doesn't work.

At last some information on my matiz ;)
I have tried to flash  read the fault codes but this did not work  :(
So can I use diagnostic tools for GM cars (which seem to use a 10 pin connecter in the Uk) ???
I have looked at the motorscan site but could not see a 12 pin connecter listed.
There are 6pins used within the 12 pin connecter,any ideas on which ones would carry the information ???
Thanks

Basil,

The ALDL package that we sell also comes with the 12 pin cable but we do not advertise it here because the Australian cars use a 6 pin plug, later updated to 16 pin OBD2 style but still ALDL !! ( confuses a lot of people who buy OBD2 scan tools on the net only to find it doesn't work.

In the UK you also have the 10 pin OPEL  ALDL plug.

To summarise: We offer a complete ALDL package with 12 pin to interface cable and interface to USB port plus the software( upgradeable for life ). If your computer has a 9 pin serial RS232 port, we have an alternative cable.


Regards.  Paul

Basil,

Regarding flashing the codes, it's not just a case of putting a bridge across 2 pins.

Basil,

There would be no tax to pay and the airfreight would cost about $50 - $60 max ( AUD)

Try a 10k resistor across A and B.

USA Federal government is a fools. The OBD2 connector should be differ than OBDI connector.

Now do I understand the CAN connector are the same as OBDI & OBD2 connector ? If so, the government is a fools again.

Of course the connector is the same, because CAN is an OBD2 protocol.

It's not the US Government that failed to take note of this. All cars in the US since 1996 have had the 16 pin OBD2 socket. Prior to this all GM cars had a 12 pin ALDL ( OBD1) socket.

It's the Australian manufactured cars that have had a 16 pin OBD2 socket but were actually OBD1.

I'll try a 10k link at the weekend and post result.
I've looked at the efilive site and it does not list the matiz,just a nubira.
As the matiz is a 3 cylinder would this cause a problem?
