OBD-II / CAN Interface
The BIM-01-2 OBD-II (J1850/CAN) Interface allows you to plug directly into the engine diagnostic port, extracting engine and transmission data from the vehicle's computer (ECM). The BIM-01-2 will collect and output the following information to Dakota Digital Instrument Systems *:
Available on most vehicles (see below):***
Check Engine Indicator
Intake Air Temperature
Ambient Air Temperature
Due to the various factory and modified ECM's, additional data including (Intake Temp, Transmission Temp, Ambient Air Temp, Oil Pressure, and Gear Position) may be available, but will vary from application to application. Dakota Digital cannot guarantee the presence or accuracy of the Coolant Temp, Intake Temp, Transmission Temp, Ambient Air Temp, Oil Pressure, Boost or Gear Position displays since this is a function of the ECM and matching OEM functional sensors.
*The BIM-01-2 is designed to decode the information provided by the ECM through OBD-II and supply this information to the VFD3 rev. G, VHX,HDX and RTX control box instrument systems only. Earlier control boxes (with an aluminum case) are not compatible with the BIM family of Expansion Modules.
**The BIM-01-2 is designed for J1850 and CAN OBD protocols only.
Compatible with OBDII protocols SAE J1850 VPW, SAE J1850 PWM and ISO 15765 CAN 500k 11 bit identifiers that follow the SAE J1979 PID protocol.
If you are concerned about compatibility with your vehicle please contact our sales or tech department.
***Ford Performance Coyote crate engine packages provide a limited amount of data available through the OBD port. Because of this, the BIM-01-2 is not recommended
