  • Hey Arodd2000, I did not investigate what was the issue with getting CAN data on my old car. I think it must have been malfunctioning as I used a different diagnostic tool to check CAN messages and it was responding to a very few request messages. Something like 1 in 20-30 request messages. Hope this helps you.

  • Hello Toni_K,

    I just tried the same setup in a different car(2010 Hundai Sonata) and it worked perfectly fine. The problem was with my old car.

    Thank you for all the support. I would definately like to buy you a beer to honor the beerware..!!

  • Ok thanks a lot. I will contact tech support.

  • Yes I am using SparkFun DB9 to OBD-II connector.

  • I have connected this CAN-BUS Shield to OBD-II connector of a 1996 Nissan Maxima. When I power up the board(SparkFun_CAN_Demo) I get "CAN Init ok" followed by the selection menu, but it does not prints anything after entering anyone of the option. It prints the selected option but no data. Am I missing something?

No public wish lists :(
