I started datalogging with the OBDIIC&C gauge (v0.04), PicAxe cable and the PLX-DAQ/Excel spreadsheet two days ago.
I was delightfully surprised that on the first try of opening the spreadsheet and using the PLX-DAQ "plug in" in Excel to
connect to the gauge, the data started streaming right in and populating the spreadsheet nicely. However, there is one
thing missing from the data in Excel: the +/- sign for Bam (IMA battery amps). I tried toggling the datalogging option on
and off and resetting the gauge with no change.
The main screen on my gauge displays:
Not that it should matter, but my netbook (HP/Compaq MiniNote 2133) is running WinXP, SP3 and Excel 2007.
I use a serial to USB cable between the PicAxe cable and the computer.
My car is a 2006 and many ECM parameters do not work with V 0.04, but
this logging output should be independent of ECM version I would think.
Is leaving one of the eight on-screen parameters blank necessary to get the +/- sign to be logged?
I am looking to recreate graphs similar to Eli's in Data Logging With the OEM Pack
to get a fairly accurate picture
of battery health before grid charging.
If anyone has gotten this working with v0.04, please share your wisdom.
