Brett,

Other place to look is ]PLMS

not sure if the QR25DE is supported, but by the rest of the engine types, it should be.



Gordon,

Thanks for the link.

Looks like this is the way to go and is a cheap alternative to Consult II.

I have contacted them asking if it'll work with the exy.

Re: Nissan Consult - what is it ?


Hehe I talked to those guys about 6 months ago when I was looking into all this stuff. If nothings changed since then it wont work, they explained to me that consult II hasnt been hacked yet so there isnt one of these available.
Top blokes though!

Hi Joe,

You're correct in saying that Pete is a top bloke indeed.

He confirmed to me that while their hardware interface IS compatible and a connector for our type of ECU can be obtained, the software only works with Consult I, which similar to Consult II, but the timing is different.

They're not software developers, so they are also waiting for someone skilled enough to develop the right software for it.

Guess we gonna have to wait and see. It's only a matter of time.

Re: Nissan Consult - what is it ?


Hi All. Just a note with the consult ll. It's really only a diagnostic tool with "some" user allowable programming. I used to use a consult 1 for a company I work for some time back. The consult ll may be different, but I sort of doubt it.

The unit allows for full body ECU program changes, but not motor ECU changes. This is because the EFI is a open system (or in other words a self learning system). Some of the values are fixed, such as idle, cold idle etc, but fuel/air ratio is a variable.
(An ECU hackers nightmare. hehehe)

Just on this point, I've programmed a few ECU's over the years and the open systems are really hard to get more KWs from. A closed system is much more user friendly.

Re: Nissan Consult - Who needs it?


Hi Guys,

I have some excellent news for you all emoticon

I have finally managed to tap into my ECU and get most readings LIVE while the car was turned on!

I have tracked down a gadget called ]ELM323 OBD-II Interpreter which plugs directly into the ECU plug and translates the readings using a software loaded on the laptop and giving you real-time type of readings of everything (almost) that is showing in ECU.

I had this gadget for about a month now and couldn't get it to work, as the laptop I have doesn't have a serial port and this device refused to work with a serial to USB converter.

Today I visited Adam and we tested this device using a laptop with a serial port and what do you know, everything came to life LOL emoticon

The graphics and dials which gave us the readings were awesome and the software has all sorts of readings that can be taken.

This includes HP and Torque graphs, quarter mile and 0-100kms [sign in to see URL]

]HERE is just a quick preview of some screen shots of one of the applications called PCMSCAN

The other application I used called ]DIGIMOTO which another awesome application to get ECU readings.

All in all, am very happy with it so far, it's just like a handy mini-dyno at your fingertips emoticon

So far, I have only managed to read the ECU, but one of the applications has a command tab which could possibly enable me to push-out new setting to the ECU (example: Advance Timing emoticon ) wouldn't that be awesome???!!!???

Anyway, am now in the market for an oldish laptop with a serial [sign in to see URL] of of you guys have one they don't need? LOL

I love technology emoticon

P.S. Please note that I have only tested this device with Series I ECU, in the coming days, I will test it for compatibility with Series II ECU as well and report back.

Re: Nissan Consult & ECU Readers


Just like in the first "Fast an the Furious" movie, hey?

Clare has an old laptop (Toshiba Satellite 220CDS) which was very slow the only time I ever powered it up over a year ago. It has Win95 on it and I was only ever going to use it to copy photos from the digital camera but I didn't think it even had a USB port - I just looked and it does! The serial port is a 9-pin rectangular one.

I'll stick it on the charger (as I assume the battery would be dead) and fire it up maybe tomorrow.

Exactly Rich LOL emoticon

It'll be great if you can find that laptop and it has a serial port, so I can do some "dyno" runs and record all readings, then I can hook it up to a stock exy and take readings as well to see the difference.

EDIT: Rich I just checked that laptop specs and it says it has 16MB of RAM only emoticon That won't be enough to run the 3 applications I have, one of which uses 28MB of RAM alone.

The X-Trail Furious sequel has begun. hahahaha

Re: Nissan Consult & ECU Readers


I was having trouble trying to source the spec's... All the search came up with was replacement batteries and memory upgrades... I did come across one page that stated "133MHz" and "16MB". No wonder it was so slow! Will the ECU software run on Win95 and 133MHz CPU?

I'll speak to Clare and see if she's interested in "donating" it to the "forum" emoticon Then you can upgrade it to your requirements...

Sorry to trouble you Rich, but Windows 95 wont be compatible with the software which can only run on Win98/98SE/ME/2000/XP

Thanks for your help anyway.
