Reading OBDII Trouble Codes & Descriptions Using Python On A Raspberry Pi

Sat Apr 28, 2018 4:47 am

I have written a Python script to read trouble codes from a car ECU and look up a human readable description for the codes. I will OpenSource the Python script on GitHub a bit later today here:

Following are some videos about the project:

The Raspberry Pi OBDII Python script is now communicating and getting all valid PID data using a Python Class. Source code will be updated on GitHub.

The OBDII Python application now has the start of a GUI added. The next update should have most of the GUI complete and a custom Raspberry Pi device to run on.

Rumee,

In GitHub you can view the commits to the project:

https://github.com/BirchJD/PiOBDII/commits/master

Get the code at one of the early commits, I think it was the second commit when I was just pulling back trouble codes.
