    Other than Normal drive mode at startup OBD Dongle

    Hello,

    I’m in final phase of production a nice mod. Little OBD dongle which:

    - automatically choose different Drive Mode than Normal at startup,
    - automatically switch off Auto Start Stop function at startup,
    - automatically switch on Launch Control if car is not in the move and RPMs exceeded 4000,

    It will be Ford service transparent system because it is working like a simulator of “virtual” pushes of the buttons. Nothing is going to be changed and stored in ECU. So, just remove dongle before service and you have OEM system back without any traces of dongle being installed and working.

    The last thing which I would like to change and I’m asking you for help is a changing detection method of engine running. Now is:

    - IF engine speed and rpm value > 0 THEN engine is running

    Instead of this I would like to use PID: PWR_MODE_KEY like this:

    - IF PWR_MODE_KEY value = running THEN engine is running

    The problem is that I know PID PWR_MODE_KEY exists and working (in Forscan for example) but I don’t have a CAN bus data for this PID.

    Could anyone help me with this, please.

    Thanks in advance.

    Sounds like a fun project. If you could put a button on it to be ran near the driver for LC that would be cool too.

    I don't remember seeing a pid for key on when messing around with torque. Not saying its not there. Why not use the engine run timer? Do something like
    IF eng_run_timer > 0 then engine running. The PID is known and standard across OBD2 vehicles. That or email the FORScan guys for the pid.
    If you buy one, drive it hard. Because thrills like these don’t happen often.

    Hi, I'm interested in doing a similar mod for my F150, but this is my first time working with OBD-II interface. How did you find PIDS for Drive Mode and Auto Start/Stop? Sorry to respond to a question with a question, but any clues would be most appreciated!

    Thanks

    This is nice, will you release the code for the dongle or sell them? Certainly is a nice option to have and something they cant deny warranty claims over

    We are going to public part of the code if someone help us to find Drive Mode states and steering wheel arrows HS CAN signals (not MS CAN).

    Working on it. As I wrote - we are looking for Drive Mode states. Steering wheel arrows signals (over HS Can) are much welcome too. Any contributors?

    I wish I had more info to assist with that. Would be really nice to sim the left OK button to so that drive mode selection is a little faster. If using sport having option so set TCS to sport too would be great.
