    Do I need the bluetooth obd2 reader in order to customize my torque pro. I'm tring to get the transmission fluid temp to come up but its not working. I just ordered the bluetooth adapter today.

    PID: 21d9
    Unit: Fahrenheit
    Max: 250
    Min: 0
    Equation: ((((E*256)+F*(7/100)-400)/10)

    Does this look right for transmission fluid temperature? 2015 Tacoma with tow package.

    Thanks

    I did mine today and it worked but my short 3.25 mile ride to work show it only creeping up to 130° in 92° ambient air. I trying to figure out the oil temp now. you need the reader. I just bought this one....

    Thank you very much. I bought the KIWI 3 reader. 99.00 later. It supports both apple and Android. Hoping this one doesn't give me any issues.

    I found in another forum some code for the oil temp. I am going to try it on the way home and see if it works.

    What is this PID and cracking code stuff? I haven't been able to get oil temp or trans temp to show up.

    supposedly torque pro equations will work with engine link. so i will need it with engine link using torque pro equation for at temp? planing on using engine link since torque will not work with apple ios. is there an iso app that will show at temp straight up without PID equations?

    i'm planning on kiwi 3 reader with engine link. kiwi will work with ios, android & windows mobile. kiwi also faster than most for real time monitoring per their ad.

    I'm typically good with this stuff but can't figure it out for the life of me. Where do I enter the equations and other info for the tranny and oil temps?

    I found different places where you can download custom PIDs for different cars and import them into the Torque app but never have found any for the Tacoma. If you run into one somewhere please let me know.

    I don't know what a PID is. Just so I'm clear, there is currently no way to get transmission temp or engine oil temp to display on Torque Pro for the 2nd gen Tacomas. Correct?

    I think it can be done it just takes someone with more savy than me to do it. A custom PID is a programming file that some smart SOB has made up that can be imported into the Torque app and then it will display info such as what you are talking about. You can read a little about them here:

    I am using an ODBLink LX with Torque Pro and am able to read transmission temps in my 2015. I might have gotten the PIDs here to start with: http://www.fjcruiserforums.com/foru...6-trans-temp-torque-pro-obdii-anyone-try.html.

    Below are what I have in Torque

    OBD2 Mode and PID:
    2182
    Long Name:
    Transmission Fluid Temperature 1
    Short Name:
    ttemp1
    Minimum Value:
    0.0
    Maximum value:
    300.0
    Scale factor:
    x1
    Unit Type:
    °F
    Equation:
    ((((A*256)+B) * (7/100) – 400)/10)

    OBD2 Mode and PID:
    2182
    Long Name:
    Transmission Fluid Temperature 2
    Short Name:
    ttemp2
    Minimum Value:
    0.0
    Maximum value:
    300.0
    Scale factor:
    x1
    Unit Type:
    °F
