Odometer PID

Postby sseaton » Mon Sep 11, 2017 2:48 am

Has anyone been successful in finding a PID to READ the vehicle Odometer/Mileage?

I have looked over the OBD2 docs and have not seen anything. There are plenty of scan-tools out there that read the Odometer so it must be available somehow. Does anyone have any insight on this?

I want the same information so I was googling around.

Based on my research this is not an OBD PID and each manufacturer might have a custom code for it.

It seems we have two realistic options (the third is paying a lot of money pay the manufacturers for their codes):

1) Reverse engineer and figure out the code for a specific vehicle
2) Manually add your vehicles current milage and then use the OBDII PID that tells you how many kilometer the car has done since the last error code reset to keep track thereafter

If you find anything else out please do share!

With the limited information that seems to be available, I would think using the PID_DISTANCE_WITH_MIL is your best bet for now, You would need to know the distance at which the fault codes where cleared and then add that to the read value, ie PID_DISTANCE_WITH_MIL + Offset
