Unread post by markJ » March 26th, 2008, 7:45 pm

Hi
Can any of the courier/ bravo crew tell me if a Scangauge will work in a Courier 2000 mod 2.5 diesel. I have looked for the obd 2 socket but cant find it

Thanks

No it won't work. I could not find an OBD port on my 2003 Bravo TD and asked the local dealer who told me they do not have one. As the engine is using mechanical injection timing and not an ECU like on the new common rail diesels , there is no need for an OBD interface as there is no computer to link to.

You can buy them at http://www.scangauge.com.au also

Thanks mate. I actually stumbled upon the OBDII port a couple of weeks ago. Bought one on eBay yesterday, should get delivery next week.

Where did you mount yours?

I was thinking on the blank between the sound system knobs below the CD slot... I think the dimensions are a perfect fit for this location.

Cheers,

scangauge mount

Unread post by bt501 » May 2nd, 2008, 9:59 am

Hi BCE

I was thinking of that spot too but decided to leave it for switches. I mounted mine on top of the steering column, with velcro supplied. Fits just under the trip meter reset. Doing it that way was an easy cable run, out of sight, no holes and keeps the gauge in line of sight.

Have since found (off another thread or forum) that NARVA do a range of switches that fit the MAZDA blanks and look close to original I picked up some NARVA 63041bl (25 amp on -off -on) for lights and other stuff. They even make them with driving light or fog light warning leds. Autobarn etc for around $15

Cool. Thanks for the info on Narva switches. If you can, post a picture of your Scangauge mounting. I'll do the same when I get mine and fit it.

Cheers,
BCE.

Thanks for that mate. That's actually a good place to put it. When you said you had put it there I imagined it might block the view of the odometer/trip display but the pics prove otherwise.

I received delivery of my Scangauge yesterday and installed it last night. Am very happy with it. Will post a couple of pics of my installation (on the blank between the sound system knobs) in the next day or so.

Cheers,
BCE.

G'day BT501. As promised here are a few pics of where/how I installed my Scangauge. As I said before I do like where you put yours but isn't it a little tricky pressing the buttons to change the display whilst driving?

Cheers,
BCE.

Thanks BCE
yes it is a bit tricky pressing the buttons whilst driving, but I find I dont do it that often just when the tank is getting low or I fillup.
I like your display is that a 7", it looks like a good fit. I have been tossing up whether to get a cheap laptop, $500 , with ozi explorer, reversing camera etc but they tend to be 15.4". That screen looks very neat, how did you mount it?
second question did you figure out how to get that bit of trim that you mounted the scangauage on,out?
thanks

It took me a while to work it out. There are 2 screws, one behind the temperature knob and one behind the air direction knob. Once these are removed, you can pop out the bottom of the silver shroud, disconnect all the plugs and pull it right out.

BCE and BT501,
Could you tell me where you got you scangauge's from and what do they cost, also, how accurate do they seem.

Thanks guys
