    TCS provides the Torque Converter Slip for Automatic Trans VPW/ISO Cars, measured in RPMs

    TXD: 6C10F1221991(01)
    RXF: 046205190691
    RXD: 3010
    MTH: 000100080000
    NAM: TCS

    Its useful to see how close to lockup you can get (lowest possible RPMs) when cruising

    It works on my 2002 Pontiac Montana. The additional (01) may or may not be needed, you have to try it to see which one works. The 3.4L V6 LA1 engine in my Montana always needs it.

    Does anyone have the codes for the SOC and traction battery temp for the Lincoln MKZ Hybrid...
    Love the new car, but hard to find the Xguage codes...
    The FEH codes do not work..
    Thanks for the help...!!!

    Scangauge themselves are an incredible resource for these kinds of things. Send them an email with that specific request and my guess is they will send you the data points needed to enter it.

    I have seen many xgauge codes for the Prius II, but have not found any to know the coolant temperature electrical system.
    know if you can see this parameter with the sacngauge?

    Do you mean the temperature of the battery pack? I don't think there would be coolant temp for the pack as the pack is air-cooled by drawing cabin air into/around it.

    EDIT : sorry, I read your other post and realized what you mean. If I am not mistaken (I may be), the electric motor isn't directly liquid cooled or, if it is, it uses the coolant also circulated through the internal combustion engine (ICE).

    there are two circuit with refrigerant, one for the combustion motor and another one for the electric sistem.
    this code is that i,m lookin for.
    i have the codes for the battery temperature (this is refrigerated by air).
    the codes for prius II and prius III aren,t the same.

    I know the circuit you refer to as the inverter coolant. Perhaps searching for inverter coolant temp xgauge will turn up something. I would also PM Dan and TheForce to see if they know of anything. Be sure to specify gen II for them.

    What is the X gauge and why do I need one? Is this question answered anywhere?

    Scangauge II comes with several standard gauges, but many other parameters available are car specific. You have to enter hex codes in several fields to set them up. Must have firmware version 3.15 or so on the scangauge to program x-gauges.

    Xgauge is a mechanism for adding additional gauges to the ScanGauge II which are vehicle specific. As an example, owners of the Prius can add a gauge which will display state of charge for the traction battery with better resolution than the display built into the car, and gauges can also be added for hybrid component temperatures and current flow measurements. The Ultragauge does not have this capability.

    So either one will work? What would I see if car is in LB for each??

    I had an interesting day. I found the Scangauge CANSF xgauge coding for cat temps, and programmed them in. The following photos show the results:

    Starting with a cold (51F) engine, the UG cat bank 1 sensors 1&2 were showing 214F and 134F, while the corresponding SG cat temps were 2499 and 1727.

    When the cat reached light-up temp per the UG (sensor 1 = 749F, sensor 2 = 553F), the SG showed unbelievable 7853F and 5889F sensor 1&2 values.

    The SG values were roughly 10 times higher than the UG values. I visited Linear-Logic's website and found their xgauge manual, which explained the MTH (math) coding. It explained the MTH coding had three two byte hexadecimal numbers. The first pair made a multiplier, the next pair made a divisor, and the third pair made an add/subtract value. The MTH coding for all the Fahrenheit cat values was 0009 0005 FFD8. The MTH coding for all the Celsius cat values was 0001 0001 0000.

    Hmm. The Celsius values get multiplied by 1 and divided by one, so they're unchanged. The Fahrenheit values should get converted by the formula F=9/5C+32. But the values are ~10X too high. The 0009 is the 9s multiplier, and the 0005 is the 5s divisor. The FFD8 is wrong. It uses the high bit to indicate a 2s compliment to be subtracted. I want to add 32, and drop the overall value by a factor of 10. So what happens if I change the MTH coding to 0009 0032 0020? I'm multiplying by 9, but dividing by 50 (0032 hex = 50), and adding 32 (0020 hex). Here are the results.


    So, I solved the SG coding error. The SG cat temps followed the UG cat temps closely when my xB was idling or driven under load.

    Unfortunately, you still don't have it right. The CAT temp has scaling of .1 AND an offset of -40C per OBD-II. The FFD8 is 2's complement for -40, but it should be 9/50 for the scaling. The MTH for CAT temp in degrees F should be 00090032FFD8, as is shown for the Escape Hybrid. And, for degrees C it should be 0001000AFFD8. Of course, this assumes no decimal point moving.

    I had started a new thread on the Escape Hybrid area and then saw this discussion group on the ScanGauge so here it is again.

    Make a Great product even Greater?

    I know that owners of the ScanGauge II love it - but couldn't it be even much more useful if a small change were made?

    I would venture to say most have 'Gauges' set to come on when you start up. Love the 'Gauges' and can't get enough of them. I own a 2005 FEH AWD there are only four slots on the gauges page now, and trying to figure out which gauge I will have on start-up each time is a conundrum. I have a suggestion I think that would make a great leap forward especially for Hybrid owners - that suggestion is have a second set of four gauges that could be anything, RPM, MPH, GPH, SOC, TBV (traction battery voltage) - - - either or both ICE or EV gauges.

    Really - how many times do you need or use the upper left button on the home screen 'Scan'? It takes up a lot but gives very little in return to be taking up a hard button where it could be a soft one under 'More'?. Why not copy the code for 'Gauges' over to that button and call it 'Gauges 1' and change 'Gauge' to 'Gauges 2' and move the 'Scan' function under 'More'? You could have one screen set up for ICE related gauges and the other for EV or both for ICE or EV. Re-program the 'Home' button to be a toggle between the two when you are on one of the 'Gauge' pages and if you really wanted to go 'Home' then hold it for two seconds or so to go to the 'Home' screen.

    To me the 'Scan' function is not a highly of a used feature and if you did need it - well it would be under 'More'.

    What do you think and if you like it do like me and go to the 'Contact Us' and choose 'Comments or Suggestions' under 'Subject' - maybe if enough ask for the change and told how it would really help and that the 'Scan' function would not be any trouble finding under 'More' If you like the idea then flood them with emails backing a second bank of gauges.

    Just a thought - Phillip

    some one here once helped me program my AFR and absolute load (volumetric efficiency) plus exhaust temp and MAF reading. This has been so helpful after i tuned my car. I was told that my car also reports oil pressure (using pro sport gauges) and I was wondering if someone can help me with the CANSF codes for oil pressures? thanks.

    CarlD: I've been searching for x gauge codes for the Chevy Volt: Specifically one that would show kw/amps of regen.

    Did you ever get that? I'm looking for kW output of MG2 on a Prius 2. I can find kW output of the engine, but not MG2...

    Is the Xgauge feature usable at all if the car is not listed? I would like to make one of the 4 gauges display "Tank Average" while in gauge mode. My car is an 05 Corolla, but the guide only shows 08+ models for Xgauge.

    Virtually all '96 and up vehicles will work. An '05 US Corolla will definitely work. Assuming you have a version of the SG that does xgauges, that is.
