Hi Simon,

 

Just to check a few things, have you set torque to use the bluetooth OBD? you need to pair your phone to the device, then open torque, go into the menu, Settings, OBD2 Adapter Settings and then Choose Bluetooth Device. Here you would need to set the OBD device, and then restart.

 

If you have, is your bluetooth adapter connected to the car, with the engine either running, or on electrics? when you do this, does your smartphone show the bluetooth connected symbol?

 

Andi, Generic is just a device that can be used with anything. Its not made specifically for Ford, or any other manufacturer, its designed to be a universal device. The only other thing is that the iPhone doesn't have Torque as far as I am aware, but it does have other similar applications.

Hi Could anyone recommend a good programme for the iphone/ipad? One that does fault codes and engine performance.  I tried searching for "torque pro" but no joy.

 

Many Thanks

Having recently been looking into this, I dont think there is an "iPhone" and "Bluetooth" compatible solution. apparently iPhones bluetooth stack is a hybrid between bluetooth technology and Apply Jargon which no other non apple device can speak, so you would struggle, however, you can get WiFi accessible OBDII devices and could try them with the below, I have made a few small notes.

 

if you do invest in any, then I would welcome you to write your findings and thoughts here for other Apple users to share in and use!

 

There's this: https://itunes.apple.com/gb/app/engine-link-obd-ii-vehicle/id591557194?mt=8 that I have heard of.  but they do say if you have a bluetooth adapter, to contact support before hand.

 

Alternatively, suggestion is that https://itunes.apple... a code reader.

 

The most expensive I have seen yet (but best reported on) is REV: https://itunes.apple...avy investment.

 

 

In the short hand, if you have an Android, or a bluetooth enabled PC, then a bluetooth adapter would be a good investment. However, if you only have the iPhone, then I would contact the app developers first, get them to confirm it either works with a generic Bluetooth or WiFi device, and only invest with an assurance that these are compatible.

 

Anything you do find out though, please do share your thoughts!

thank you for the advise, like the look of the first app suggestion. Looking on ebay theres a lot of choice of OBD2 WIFI adaptors.

Definitely check with the developers to be sure that its compatible, you dont want to spend all that money for it not to work correctly...

Recoding is an option, but start with something a bit easier, such as BG244. it could be as simple as an additive clearing the engine or injector ports that could reduce the knock!

 

I beleive that you need to recode them in order of ignition.

 

If BG244 doesnt work, then check the spark plugs and leads, as this can often be a cause.

 

I would say dont recode till you have at least tried these!
