This is great! Still trying to get my mitts on the right tools for the job here.

Can anyone tell me if an ELM 1.5 bluetooth adapter and a consult 14pin to OBD2 cable will work with any android software?

I have tried using the adapter cable with my wifi elm device on my ipad using software not compatible with nissan and it managed to connect to the car but not be supported so I gathered it should connect with the right software. I know 90% of android software required a bluetooth adapter to connect so would potentially need to get a bluetooth V1.5 one.

Looking at the ECU talk adapter but if I can get this working with cheaper bits then happy days....

Hope that all made sense.

Hi Neil.

The post has been updated to a HOW To in the E50 section.

The post was really to help owners of later 2000 on models with the 16 pin, so called OBD adaptor. It's as much an OBD socket as my A.. Hole! :fart:

The 14 pin is read differently, and there is info that Rapperfrapper put in a HOW To, about this in the E50 forums.

However..... If you go to this site:
<!-- m --><a class="postlink" href="http://home.exetel.com.au/nds/NDSI/index.php?content">http://home.exetel.com.au/nds/NDSI/index.php?content</a><!-- m -->

and look at the NDS1 options, there's more there than I can tell you, but I am 99% certain that somewhere on Tom's site, it says that the ELM V1.5 Bluetooth adaptor will NOT work with NDS1.....but there are adaptors that will., which you can view on the relevant pages of his site.

Hope that helps. I'm now using the Windows programme on my 2001 V6, and it is AWESOME.

Hope that helps you. Don't give up with it. As I found.... There will be a way. :D :D

Thanks for that, really appreciate it. I've had to buy an android device as I'm all apple here which is a pain in the arse for these bits of software. Can't justify buying a windows machine just for the sake of using the software.

Might try the diy route to get an adapter working. If I have any luck I shall post something on the relevant page for others to follow.

Ok buddy. Take care, let's know how you get on. I've just added another link to that post Rapperfrapper put in. Might help. He's done a lot on this, and got it working.

I have a friend who runs a mostly van repair business and his fault code reader reads my Merc 180sport 2001 and my Elgrand 3.5 E50 2001 so they must have the same plug in system

I realize this post is now a couple of years old, and maybe everyone has now solved the ECU riddle for themselves
My vehicle is an E50 manufactured March 2001. I can positively say this reader works fine for me. Go to OBDINNOVATIONS.COM and scroll down to "NISSAN AND INFINITI tools". Item name is ELM327 Bluetoooth Scanner with PIC18F25K80 microprocessor v.1.4 (see illustration). Cost is around USD $25 plus postage. This device links via bluetooth to phone, laptop, etc. and shows default codes plus other engine info. on screen. Free phone app then tells you what various ECU codes mean. Cheap and easy.
