I was chasing a similar issue on a D90 after a motor install. I had no check engine light illuminated, although it would work during the bulb check. It ended up that someone had cut the wire from the ECU to the CEL, so it would still come on at bulb check, but not illuminate if there was a fault. It ended up being a defective fuel injection ECU.

Yeah, I am currently working on getting an ECU to swap in and see if I do have a bad one.

First, congrats Jason!

I'll ping Collin to see what he wants. Maybe he'd appreciate donations, but he might be of the same mind as me - just wanting to help others get their hands on some cool tech without having to go through the hassles of building their own cable.

Either way you and I can make cables and make them available to anyone who needs them - we are really just talking about price at this point.

Tom, I'll make up a cable today with this cheaper USB adapter and see if it works. If it does you can have it and I'll order a bunch more. We just need to get someone to help us source the connector ends from junk RRCs and we can make more for the rest of ya.

Man that is awful nice of you... that sure would beat the shady solder job that I would probably do.

I sent you an email earlier via the site. If you didn't get it, PM me your address and I'll send the cable I just made.

As I suspected Colin doesn't want any donations and would prefer we sell them at cost. I contacted the place in China I got the cable from and buying direct and in bulk I can get them for $7 each so I ordered 20. Now we need to find connectors. If we can find the pins I can try 3D printing them otherwise I think our best bet is to ask people who break discos and RRCs to donate them.

I have a box full of padded envelopes that the cable fits in just fine and will see what shipping comes to for Tom, but suspect we can put these cables together shipped for $12 or so if you factor in the resistor and heat shrink tubing.

Charles - these might be the right connector ...

if you want to ship a bundle of cables to me I'm happy to do an NYC boost edition ...

I believe someone tried to get those and they were not available. But feel free to inquire. I just put out a wanted post to see if we can get some used ones donated. I only have 2 left.

Yeah I can send some cables when they come in. The last one took a long time to ship on the slow boat from china though.

If you have a mac, you can install Virtual Box (free) and run Windows on it. I have windows versions 1.0 to 8.0, OS2 and DOS running on my Mac OSX.

Not sure that would have the support for the special USB cable but we can give it a try.

Someone did put this on a raspberry pi and had a wireless link to and android phone / tablet. I like the idea of having this permanently installed with a little display or phone based interface.

The most useful thing I've found is the accurate read of engine temp.

Its probably not that useful unless you are trying to diagnose a running issue. T4 pretty much sucks for this, and our Lucas Fuel injection diagnostic tool is toast.

Since when does a D not have some sort of running issue?

When it's got a 4 cylinder.

You know maybe you should consider replacing the connectors on the units that will use the cables. Get some delphi style waterproof connectors and an extra to go to the cable and replace the connectors going to the ECU on the Land Rover that is going to be diagnosed. They sell on ebay pretty reasonable
$3.30

That's a good idea, until you need to hook T4 to it. I guess it is only a couple of wires to hook the old connector back up.
