VY Dash code tinkering.

Postby Ken » Thu Dec 17, 2020 11:59 pm

Was considering delving into the dash side of things with regards to altering code within the chip on them, and was wondering if anyone else here has tinkered much on the subject.
I've done an extensive search and didn't find too much on the topic.
Was hoping someone knew of an interface cable, bought or home made, that I'd need to do the job.
I've had limited success using the obd1 aldl cable bought from here, though I'm thinking that the pins used on the obd plug may differ for the job I'm attempting to do.
Thanks.

To alter the odo or something else?

It's pretty much all been done i think, custom text and logos etc, switching modes, can be done via the bus. I think i have a sheet here somewhere if needed. Or likely been posted already.

My son wanted to know if I could turn another auto dash he had into a manual one, eliminating the auto letters down the bottom.

Yeah you can do that with software over the ALDL or can take dash out & read eeprom & alter it that way.

Tazzi on here has some software & possibly others around too.
