I have been extracting OBD-II DATA from UART board (ELM327) on my TOYOTA INNOVA. It responded correctly few weeks before and gave all supported sensor values. But now, for every response, ECU responds "7F 01 11". Please tell me what exactly this output means and how to get rid of this problem

It means the requested PID is not known –  Juann Strauss May 29 at 12:42
@JuannStrauss lets take 010C, a standard PID. Why is that when we tried before, the car responded correctly but now not responding . How can we get it fixed? IS that because of some changes in ELM327 (UART Board) –  user3098378 May 29 at 13:30
I can't say without seeing your code, but it may be that your header has changed or you're requesting the wrong mode. Or maybe you changed the baud rate. –  Juann Strauss May 29 at 18:44
@JuannStrauss I did change the Headers through ATSH XXX when i was monitoring CAN DATA through ATMA. Then i did reset it many times through ATZ and ATD, is there any other way to reset ELM to original state like with Headers off or reset. –  user3098378 May 30 at 7:00
I honestly don't know. I've only done it via a C# library and a piece of software I wrote on top of it. You can have a look at the library here if you want: obdcsharpwrapper.codeplex.com –  Juann Strauss May 30 at 7:42
