    So I ordered the ScanGuage II mostly out of curiosity in wanting to know what temp my engine operates at, transmission, my MPGs over various trips, etc. and to detect any problems before it becomes a problem...

    It's supposed to arrive today. I always feel like a kid on Christmas morning when I order a new gadget and it shows up! :yay:

    Hoping I'll have no problem with getting it to read the transmission temp. Saw some threads here where people had issues, but it seemed that 2011+ didn't have that issue anymore.

    I just traded up from my 09 with man trans, so no trans temp available there, to a 13 DBSB sport and put on a new SG II. You will need to get the code specific to tacoma for trans temp. Mine works perfect with no probs at all. Runs in the mid 150's around town with 80+ outside temp.

    Let me know and I will post code I used, if you need it.

    Anything you could post to help read the trans temp would be great. Ive read the entire scan gauge book and been on here 3 hours reading through threads from the search feature, and not found it yet.

    Ive got about 4 days driving now on my new SG II and love it so far, its a great tool. I tow a lot and really need to monitor the trans temp, its the main reason I choose it over the other couple options. Thanks

    The codes and to what vehicles they apply are on the scan gauge website.
    The booklet only tells you how to enter them
    this coding is what worked for my '13 AT and is what is referred to above.

    Transmission Fluid Temperature
    TXD: 07E021D9
    RXF: 032180000000
    RXD: 2810
    MTH: 00070065FE70
    NAM: TFT
    In degrees

    Ndub86,

    Can you post some pictures when you get it installed? I've been contemplating getting a SGII but not sure where I'd mount it yet.

    Also to be clear, 10+ have TFT1 and TFT2 for pan temp and torque converter temp, 09- is TFT1, pan temp only.

    I really like this setup but I've relocated my rear view mirror higher, so the scan gauge won't fit on top.

    Search, there is a thread on scanguage mount options that people have used.

    I don't have pics, but one of the ideas that I picked up (since I also have the mirror relocate bracket), is to take the belt clip from a measuring tape (or somesuch) and a small screw (need to be careful to screw it back far enough that it doesn't hit the SG electronics), remove the SG back cover, screw in the clip to the back cover, then I added two pieces of the hook part of velcro to the either side of the clip. Then I clipped the SG to the top left of my headliner, and just have the cable routed down the A-pillar.

    Thanks guys, I bet Ive spent 3-4 hours reading on the subject. That thread and data dated a ways back and didn't come up through my searches but appreciate you posting it. I have all that wrote down I will go give it a try. Thanks again

    That's because you selected instantaneous MPG instead of average. Check the code list at the front of the book.

    When SC is in norm op mode, 4 gauges displayed, whenever you push a button it advances that display to the next gauge.

    You need to post the four 3 alpha codes that the gauge displays when motor is running and the position on gauge (lower left, upper right, etc)

    At each of the four corners the display is a number and a 3 digit alpha code for example : 68.0 MPH is you speed ad reported by the ECU. 2114 RPM is engine rpm.

    You did set this up according to page 4 - 13 right?

    Referring back to YOUR post #15. How do you know if your mpg is jumping around if you don't even know if SC is displaying mpg as you are unaware of the 3 digit alpha codes that tell you what you are looking at ?
