Have just taken delivery of new Nissan Navara D40 auto STX and have plugged the Scanguage in and it works.

With 200km on the clock its been fun.

Lucky you. Has anyone managed to get one working with a GU 3.0 Patrol as yet. I would love to get one of these in, but not much good if it doesnt work :)

Cheers

Hi Richard,

This is the repsonse I got from David at Wooders Garage.

"Unfortunately it's not until 2006 that Nissan became compliant with the required software protocol. So whilst they will plug into your socket - they won't actually connect."

Bugger eh?

Regards,
Darren

Yes its not good as I think it would be great to have one in the truck. I believe that it may have something to do with the pin configuration, so hopefully sometime someone comes up with a resolution that may work with Patrols prior to 2006. We can only hope I guess....

Cheers

The Patrol 3.0Di isn’t OBD-II compliant, but the CRD is, so the Scangauge will work on a CRD. The earlier Di version uses a 16 pin OBD socket, but still uses Nissans Consult system, so there is no way an OBD tool will work on one. The CRD uses Consult also, but has a CAN line for emission testing which will give you some engine data.

It has nothing to do with the pin configuration, just the wrong protocol.

The only on board diagnostic system available (to my knowledge) for a 3.0Di Patrol is Nistune, using a PLMS Consult Interface. I use one on my Patrol 3.0Di and it’s a very handy tool. THIS is how I set mine up.

Troll 81,

I can’t say for sure, but I think there would be a good chance that it will if you have the grey 14pin rectangular Consult socket. I’m not sure which address file you would use or if Matt would have to write one up for you, but I do know that it works with the later 4.2 Patrols with electronically controlled fuel pumps and they also use the 14pin socket. I know they are working on getting it to connect to a 2.8TD, which also uses the 14pin socket. I guess you would have to email and ask Matt from NISTune.
Good luck!

Sorry Troll 81, I assumed that you were refering to Nistune, but if you meant the Scangauge, then no it won't work on your 4.5 Patrol.

So $40k to $50k for your new 4X4 and you have to buy this thingy to tell you when its going to blow up come on I can buy a "new" motor for my Isuzu for $4250 and still get that same economy and a bit of a tweak on the dyno around about the same power.

You're not a gadget man are you. At least now I can go to the Service Manager and tell him the DTC results, better than the thingybob goes boing now and then!!

Have you found a new leather bridle for your chariot yet?

;-)

Or at least how do i find out?

Hi Russell,

I have a D40. Is it easy to connect.
Looking at the website it does not describe the instillation process except to say 'easy and connected in seconds.'

Are you finding it usefull?

I bought it from Wooders. It simply plugged into the OBD port and voila.

The port is easily accessed too!

I like the live fuel consumption, given in LPH and LPK, other stuff is interesting but I like that sort of thing anyhow.

Cant see much use in it myself - maybe fuel consumption but for around $200 pen and paper is fine by me. Each to their own I guess.
