Thread: Anyone near me want to play with diagnostics?

  1. #1

    Default Anyone near me want to play with diagnostics?

    First an introduction. I am one (there only two of us) of the people behind the pscan.eu diagnostics system for Rovers and MGs.
    I don't want to launch into a sales pitch because I don't know if that's allowed on this forum, and I don't even know if the product works on the V8 models.

    I would like to find out though.

    Is there anyone on here who would fancy meeting up, preferably in Ruislip area, to give it a try?

    I am told that the T4 will not talk to the Ford engine ECU, is it true?
    My suspicion is that the Ford ECU talks PWM whereas the T4 hardware is probably only capable of ISO and the development needed to include PWM never happened.

    The thing is that our product in theory has the capability to talk PWM. We would have to develop the firmware to make it work but at least the drivers are on the circuit board. Again I would like to find out.

    thanks, Philip

    Sounds interesting but I live in Sweden.:-( If you get it to work, would it be an expensive system for workshops or affordable for the consumer?

    We are already selling the tool for £149GBP which I think is affordable. In terms of "getting it to work" we have already covered all of the Engine ECUs, ABS controllers and Airbag ECUs fitted to Rover 75s except for the V8 models.

    We plan to keep improving the tool and covering more ECUs which is why I would be interested to meet up with a V8 owner.

    The other option is that if anyone has a spare ECU, even a broken one, that I could borrow I could try things out and then send it back. If the ECU is broken it depends on the extent of its brokenness. I only need the diagnostic protocol to come up, it does not need to actually run an engine.

    The advantage of meeting someone is that we could try out the ABS and Airbag protocols as well.

    Hello there

    Regarding the pscan giving access to the MGZT260 systems - may I enquire if the device has now been tweaked and proven to access the car's devices. I would be interested in the unit if this is the case - although I can see that there are not many posts on the topic.

    Regards
    David S.
