    Cheap Diagnostic Tool for Android Users

    I couldn't find a topic on here regarding this subject so just thought I would share. I've confirmed this works only on Android devices utilizing a cheap obd2 bluetooth adapter and cheap J1939 to obd2 adapter chord. I had one of these BT code scanners......BAFX Products (TM) - PIC18F2480... https://www.amazon.com/dp/B005NLQAHS...p_mob_ap_share

    That i've used the past several years for my vehicles along with a few different free and paid apps on my android phone. The best one i've found for me so far is called Torque. It is a free app but I think i paid like $5 for the pro version which provides some additional features. The J1939 protocol that our tractors use is supported on Torque but is in Beta testing. Now I realize that our tractors have the ability to view diagnostic info through the instrument cluster but due to my tech crazy mind i wanted something a little more user friendly to be able to monitor things. So i put my head to the task and found this chord...... Mo-Co-So 1m/39" 9 Pin Male... https://www.amazon.com/dp/B011A0IQM2...p_mob_ap_share

    which i confirmed matches up to the J1939 (Service Advisor) connector. Low and behold i can now view gauges and sensor values on my android phone via bluetooth connection. I've only spent a couple minutes with it but i like having the ability to monitor things like cylinder info, dpf pressures, temperatures, and the like, in a more user friendly readable format other than turn signalling through the instrument cluster. Hopefully some of you find this useful.

    That's pretty cool! Any idea what it shows when there is an error code displayed on the dash? Maybe you could try starting in gear so it throws a Shift to Neutral warning and see what pops up on the phone. Did you get any screen shots of the display?

    Haven't had much chance to play with it but should be able to report back this weekend with some shots. I'll unplug a sensor and see what happens.

    It should so long as the tool supports the J1939 protocol.

    The Torque app shows all kinds of parameters, in real time. I use the same exact BT reader, and app for my VW, because my normal OBD2 reader doesn't work on VW's.

    I use a similar Bluetooth OBDII reader and Torque pro ($5.00) on my phone. Not long after I got it I was going on vacation and thought it would be nice to monitor some things on the Duramax that GM decided not to give me gauges for (DPF Pressure, DPF Temp, etc.). Started down the highway and after a few miles it felt like the engine died. Fortunately it only took a few seconds to recognize the cruise control had turned of. Reset cruise and 3-4 miles later same thing. After the third time it happened and while I was thinking this was going to be a long drive without cruise control (I was headed to Yellowstone from PA), I tried pulling the Bluetooth OBDII reader from the port and that fixed the problem. It may be just the cheap reader I got from ebay but I just use it as a diagnostic tool now.

    But thanks for bringing this up. Never thought of using it on the tractor. I'll have to see if the 1023E has a port.
