Are ODBII CEL codes universal?

If so, it would be great if the application would tell us what the actual code meant.

If not, I would love to have a feature where you select your car in the install and would put in the specific car ODBII CEL codes and their description.... or if that is too much... allow for the customer to import the codes so it can be displayed.

Just a thought.

Thanks,

-Dave

Looks like the installer doesn't have the "codes.txt" file. We'll fix this in the next release. In the meantime, you can create your own file of OBD-II code descriptions. The file should be an ASCII text file of the following format:

Code:

P0100 Mass or Volume Air Flow Circuit Malfunction
P0101 Mass or Volume Air Flow Circuit Range/Performance Problem
P0102 Mass or Volume Air Flow Circuit Low Input

<etc.>

One DTC per line, five characters for the code followed by a space followed by the text description of the code. The file must be named "codes.txt" and it must be placed in the folder containing Codes.exe.

A DTC that begins with "P" is a Powertrain code, and if the next number is "0", it is a "universal" code defined by standard. If the number is a "1", then it is a manufacturer-specific code.

Our version of codes.txt contains all the common "0" DTCs, but no "1" DTCs. You can edit this file yourself to add "1" codes.

I will post a version of codes.txt on the Wiki.

You can now download the standard "Codes.txt" file from the Wiki. There is a link on the main page.
