I've been trying to get Carloop working on just a basic level (i.e. reading available PIDs) from my vehicle and I'm not having any luck.
I'm using Carloop with an Electron plugged in. When I plug the Carloop into the OBD port it powers the Electron, but I can't get it to read OBD data. Both cars are Honda (2010 and 2015).
In speaking with Julien over e-mail he recommended that I try changing the speed from the default of 500 to something like 250 or 1000 (because some vehicles use these speeds) and that was a good suggestion but it didn't make any difference in my case.
Eventually I tried the "minimal" example in the Github library, which just returns the CAN message count. This does seem to work (with the default speed of 500 kbps) and it seems to return about 1500 CAN messages per second. Not sure if that is typical or not.
But I'm unable to get any further than this. The "Blink LED" example doesn't blink the LED and the "Available PIDs" example (posted by a forum member here) doesn't return anything.
My Electron is on firmware 0.6.0.
I have an extension cable which is about 10 ft. long and if I use that cable it still exhibits the same problem. The one interesting thing about the cable is it's an extremely tight fit in the carloop and OBD port and doesn't quite go in all the way. I ordered another ODB extension cable which is shorter and perhaps will fit better, so I'll find out how that works later this week.
Any help would be greatly appreciated... thanks!
