Toyota Camry Altise 2005LE (Australian) ODBII

Recommended Posts

Hi,

Has anyone successfully used the odbii port on this car to connect to a program like torque to get vehicle stats? If so, how?

I have tried using one of the generic elm 327 bluetooth dongles, but as soon as it is inserted the abs light flashes. I had read online that this may be due to pin 14 and the dongle interffering with the can bus on that port (some people had reccomended disconnecting pin 14) no idea if that information is correct although. 

I have also tried asking toyota what coms protocol the vehicle uses for odb2 but it apppears they have no idea what their own vehicle uses. I believe it uses some variant of the can bus.

I believe Toyota used their M-OBD protocol on that model.

I have read that Toyota Techstream works, but I can not confirm this.

Suggest you have good read through the OBDII thread in the Corolla/Sportivo  section. There is a lot of good stuff in there on this subject, especially from the " Sucess I've got it working"  section. I used the information to get mine working and I can tell you it's not easy, but it is doable. It works on both my 2001 Camry and 2005 Corolla. Toyota are very protective of their software. It may take a while for you to work it out, but it does work if you follow the steps. The best place to start is from "SUCESS I HAVE IT WORKING!!". That's where most of the info you want is.You will need the Techstream software. It's awhile since I did mine so my memory of what I did do is somewhat faded..But it does work....

I hope I have been of some help and the best of luck to you..By the way one of the things that does happen when you plug it in is, the ABS light does blink!!  The ELM327 is not the unit you need. You will need a TIS Compatible one, it's all in that thread...

After revisiting, I finally got my generic ELM 327 bluetooth OBD scan tool to work with my 2004 corolla sportivo!!

turned out the initial “handshake” needed to communicate with the ECU is quite particular, so when running the TORQUE application on galaxy S4, I set up a vehicle profile for the sportivo, then scroll all the way down to the “custom conflagration string” field an input the following:

ATIB 96 \n ATIIA 13 \n ATSH8113F1 \n ATSP A4 \n ATSW00

and here is what it does/means:

ATIB 96 \n     –    set the ISO baud rate to 9600
ATIIA 13 \n     –    set ISO (slow) init adress to 13
ATSH8113F1 \n     –    set Header to 8113F1
ATSP A4 \n     –    set protocol to Auto, 4 and save it

ATSW00        –    set wakeup interval to 00 x 20 msec

hope this helps anyone who has encountered the same problem

 

And thats all that was required, that one line for the Custom Configuration String: ATIB 96 \n ATIIA 13 \n ATSH8113F1 \n ATSP A4 \n ATSW00

In the interest of helping others, could you please detail the exact procedure and hardware that you used in order to get it to function.

Stumbled across the same issue with my '04 Avalon and an 'el cheapo eBay ELM327 clone ( $10ish ).  Appears to have initial comms error as it operates on a slower BAUD rate on these pre-'05 / '06 cars. Interestingly ELMScan Toyota (available as a free demo on Android Play Store) seemed to not take issue at all and worked seamlessly, even does freeze-frame data for any DTC's thrown.

Sure!

 

I have THIS OBD2 dongle, plugged into my 2AZ-FE Camry. I've used the Samsung Galaxy S4 and the Motorola Moto G 2015 phones, installed the TORQUE Pro app, configured the vehicle profile for the camry in the app,and down the bottom in "Very Advanced" it looks like this: ATIB 96 \n ATIIA 13 \n ATSH8113F1 \n ATSP A4 \n ATSW00

i also have a tasker profile set up around it, so that when my phone connects to the stereo bluetooth, it starts the Torque app, sets appropriate volume levels, has a plugin to read sms's aloud and clears the lockscreen password, and do the reverse when it disconnects from the OBD

I also have an 04 Camry.

I purchased this ELM327 https://www.ebay.com.au/itm/ELM327-OBDII-OBD2-Bluetooth-Car-Scanner-Torque-Android-CAN-BUS-Auto-Scan-Tool/172983909616?epid=23026729384&hash=item2846a4fcf0:g:fTMAAOSwPDBaDXul:sc:AU_Regular!2168!AU!-1:rk:2:pf:0

When plugged in the ABS light starts flashing

I also have configured the vehicle profile on the Torque pro app using that special line as above and also copied the settings that astol87 uploaded however is does not seem to work. 

Here are some screenshots

Also, are you sure you have your phone paired to the bluetooth?

hmm. I'd look more into the "ATIB 96 \n ATIIA 13 \n ATSH8113F1 \n ATSP A4 \n ATSW00 " settings and adjust slightly. Do you have the v6 or I4?
