So if it is OBD2 still, then are the common codes now all like UXXXX?

Are PXXXX codes going to become uncommon?

Do you think if manufacturers are going to keep with OBD2 that the stardard will have to change / be expanded on? And if so how?

Those will be common, but they have changed to a variant such as this example P0A0D which is HV system circuit high.

The codes are quite extensive to learn, the data in scanner is hallucinating, the data stream needs to be prioritized, probably saying that wrong, I mean you need to select what you need, if not, the amount of info can be a deterrent to finding a glitch.

I know this thread is in infancy stage, I will try hard to explain want I find.

We are starting to see more and more EV's at the shop, as some of those cases come in, I will update, but still don't have much experience with the day in and day out of it all yet, we are ALL on a learning curve up here. They are starting to roll in, warranty is out so it was just a question on when we have to make transition, we now, that time is here. I will happily try to answer or make some posts of the stuff I see.

This should be fun.

Since I am an advocate of elm dongles, I was surprised to see a software such as leaf spy and similar on market, there is a free version of the leaf spy. It has some cool stuff to see, such as battery balancing which is nice.

I downloaded it to my phone, I will try it on the leaf we have at school. I will have to see if my current dongle supports it, if not I will try to get one that is, that way I can also help others who don't access to a high en scanner. https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.Turbo3.Leaf_Spy_Lite

No news yet on other protocal, we are hoping lobbying will keep it open, but when you see what tesla is doing, you never know, it is fun to see competitions for hack tesla, a few guys from montreal won something lately, also a competition in vancouver went down, and while this may be a bit off topic, there was a trend for awhile where companies such a kia, toyota and some odd others had free open source info, don't try that today, all paying sites now.

As it evolves, we will be seeing more can buss sniffing and reverse engineering, we just need to give it time. For me, alot of what I read makes no sense, I just ain't that smart yet. But it is happening as we speak, and tweaking that will surely be right around the corner soon.

So maintaining a standard of safefty is going to be judicial here, may want to put in a few disclaimers/stickies such as back when with airbags. ;)
