a dog irl and alfaa

our projects

This is where we'll post our cool stuff and the happenings between the three cars we'll be working on:

  • 2001 Audi TT 180Q
  • 2009 VW Jetta SE
  • 2004 Dodge Neon SXT

We'll post dated updates as time goes on. I'm currently (as of 5/30/14) trying to get a github set up so we can share the code with you guys in a simpler way.

So, Alfaa and I have started trying to interface with our cars. What's awesome about our project is that we have three different cars we can work on, all using different OBDII protocols. Alfaa and our mutual friend, who owns a 2004 Dodge Neon SXT (ISO 9141-2), started decoding the different readings they were getting from the car, and were able to identify things like if the key is turned (very useful!) and other information.

Alfaa told me last night that he was having a lot of trouble getting readings from his car, a 2009 VW Jetta SE, which uses ISO 15765-4 (CAN). I'm sort of worried about interfacing with my car, a 2001 Audi TT 180Q, which uses KWP2000, since I can't find any actual tutorials (or even much documentation) on a DIY project interfacing with it.
