    Hello all,

    I was wondering, has anyone been successful in using an ELM327 OBD scanner with their 2009 GP?

    The reason I ask is that I haven't been successful at all; although the same scanner works on GPs that are manufactured after 2010.

    Thanks,
    Madhu.

    I think it worked on a members 2009 GP here in hyderabad. Not very sure. Was checking on multiple cars the same day so not sure if i checked on his. I used a wired adapter and Fiat ecu Scan software.

    Is our dependent on the variant? Mine is an emotion pack.

    Viny, what variant is yours?

    It is not due to variant. If the one in discussion is an MJD, probably it is this.

    The initial lot of 2009 GPs came with the Bosch ECU. While the later ones had Magnetti Marelli. Maybe the Bosch one does not support ELM327 protocol.

    Driv3r,

    Isn't the Bosch ecu OBD compliant? All the ELM327 does is translate OBD to serial.

    By the way, any idea which Bosch ecu it may be? Or, any way to find it out?

    Thanks,
    Madhu.
