2. Clear DTC, turn off dashboard MIL "Check Engine" Light
3. Display sensor data, including: Engine RPM, Load, Coolant Temperature, Fuel Status, Vehicle speed, Intake Manifold ressure (MAF/MAP), Timing Advance, Intake Air Temperature, Air Flow Rate, Absolute Throttle Position, Oxygen sensor voltage /short term fuel trim, Fuel Pressure & etc.
4. ELM327 1.4 / 1.4b /1.5 updates:
Supports ISO 15765-4 CAN, SAE J1850 PWM, SAE J1850 VPW, ISO 9141-2, ISO 14230-4 and SAE J1939 protocols.
In addition, two generic CAN protocols can be customized by the user for use with audio data busses, special OBD implementations, etc. Power Control provides a low power standby mode. There's a 4800 baud ISO option.A non-volatile memory location for storing user data.There's CAN extended addressing support for looking at low speed CAN data.
You can now perform ISO/KWP bus initializations without having to send a request.An SS command allows searching through the OBD protocols sequentially.A new TA command allows the Tester Address to be easily changed.Factory calibration for the voltage reading circuit can be easily restored.
