Excellent! It looks like it is reading the data correctly now and not bouncing all over the place. Much thanks on this!

A028 High Speed ADX file request

Post by Paul Miller » Fri Apr 07, 2017 4:33 am

I am currently working with an '87 Camaro with the LB9 series motor and the 1227165 ECM. I have successfully logged data at the 160 baud rate using the 1227165_160.ADX file. As I read the A028 data steam definition it indicates that this particular ECM is known as a "Hybrid" and capable of outputting two speeds: 160/8192 baud. The stream definition lays out two sets of parameters, one set for the low speed stream and it has 25 parameters. There is a second set of parameters, 63 parameter bytes.

1. Where do I go to get the correct ADX file to use for high speed logging?
2. I have scoured the EFI-Gearhead forum and do not see what I think I
need. Could it be as simple as using the 1227165_$6E.ADX file? I have reviewed the spec and ADX file and believe they are similar. Just lacking in knowledge to confidently move forward with a logging effort.

Any assistance is appreciated. Thank you.

the 6E ADX is very similar to the one that would be correct for your car, there are only a few status bits that are different(going off of memory).

I am looking for a XDF for the $OD MAF code. Specifically one with the 4L60e parameters in it. I have all the other files I believe. I can switch xdfs from the maf one I have to a regular $OD one and can see the trans parameters are in the bin, just not in the maf xdf. If anyone has it please let me know.

I could use A263. Can you mention what is needed to create a specific .ads?

93 5.7 K L05 C1500 suburban

Post by sabinoerc » Fri Jan 12, 2018 9:05 am

I just rcvd cable from Moates and downloaded TunerPro.
I'm a bit confused on a few items.
Looks like mask id $99 99.ads should work for engine though I have a 4L60E, not a 4L80E.
what would be ads file for the transmission?

also - I see Robert has list of obdi datastream definitions and the A179 appears to be very similar to 99.ads - but not identical.
What is a "datastream file" - ie. A179 vs an .ads file. Are they one and the same?
If there is link or reference to read, I can spend some time before using this groups time. I didn't see one on Google. - seems all links point back here!

"Retro" needs help.

1994 Oldsmobile 88 LS, 3800 V6 (No turbo)

This car is amazing! I paid $350.00 for it four years ago and put over 40,000 miles on it (Now 205,600). It has been nearly trouble-free.
Check Engine light came on last year and using TunerPro RT, V5.

I used:
$5B 16183247
V5 ONLY -5B_V5.adx
94-95 Series 1 3.8L (L27) and 94-95 Series 3.8L SC (L67)

I was able to diagnose a faulty Throttle Position Sensor. Cheap and easy fix.

I was able to create my own dash and watch the 'gages' as I drove to work. (Actually I recorded the trip and watched it later). It was an easy find and an easy fix.

Now I have the ABS lamp on and am having trouble getting usable data. the values are very unstable.

I am trying to use:
(ABS) 94-95_L_N_ABS.ads 94-95 L and N Body ABS module (only)
Is this the right Datastream Definition?

When I connect, the data is running about 3 - 5Hz and is all over the place. I tried to implement "Wait for Silence" at the beginning of the commands (70-100 ms) and I tried to tweak command replies, but I have no idea what the delays and packet sizes should be set at.

I'm using a Dell M4600 laptop with Windows 7 Pro.(2012 vintage)
So.. do I have the correct ABS definition? And can anyone help me to get this running?

I'm not at home at the moment, but I know your car isn't a N-body, fairly certain it is a H. Not sure if I've built a definition for it yet or not.

93 S10 Unicorn

Post by philalbar1 » Thu Apr 19, 2018 4:36 pm

I am having some complications finding a bin that gets close to my application, and I was hoping for some guidance. I have a 93 S10 4.3 LB4 engine code that came with a BCFZ memcal chip. I have converted the truck to a 5-speed from a 91, and the engine is going ballistic. I just got my autoprom in the mail today, and was hoping someone could direct me to a NON-California compliant bin file for a 4.3 V6, just to give me a good start. My truck doesn't have EGR or Cats, so you can blame me for the lack of ozone if you like, but I'd really like to dial this truck in. I can do it the hard way if necessary, but I'd really appreciate someone pointing me in the right direction to someone who's already done the leg-work. Thanks in advance!
