PST2 compatibility with non Porsche ECU's

Recommended Posts

The PST2 not only is capable of interrogating Porsche DME's but also has a section within the operating system to read out and do certain functions on non Porsche Cars.

The module is

Special Functions-Carb(ISO)

I'm hoping some one on here might have some experience of using the the non Porsche special functions system test.

I'm especially interested in the Pectel P6 2000 and whether it could read the functions and error codes for that ECU.

Thanks in advance.

The Special Function-Carb(ISO) function is the equivalent of OBD2 but only for cars using the ISO versions of OBD2. It will work on most cars that use K-Line for communication and will not work on any domestic cars nor will it work on any CAN-Bus(2005 and newer). It will not work on any Porsche race cars like Cup, RSR etc... You need to use a Bosch MODAS for this. Also with MODAS you need to have the specific Porsche configuration files for the car, these files come from Porsche Motorsports.

On more thing, the Pectel ECU is not supported by any of these systems. Do diagnose this you will need software and probably interface cable from the manufacturer.
