comment 2004 Mercury Grand Marquis blower motor not coming on at all
@j.keller You can get it through various wholesale parts sources in the US for around $77 plus shipping. I got it from a dealer parts department I've done a lot of business with for a cash discount. I can't remember the exact price, but I think it was more than wholesale and less than you paid, probably around $100 (no shipping). I had it in my hands within 24 hours, too, which was an important consideration.

comment Accessing Diagnostic Trouble Codes (DTCs) in car
@user3098378 Yes, it should have been 01010001 binary, fixed. The mode 1 response is hexadecimal encoded. Note that the DTCs in the mode 3 response are Binary Coded Decimal. The WikiPedia article has more details.

@user3098378 In that case the question Allan Osborne linked to should point you in the right direction. Ignore the bluetooth bits, you're still going to be talking to the ELM chip via AT commands.

What hardware interface are you using between the Rasberry PI and the OBD port? Unless you're bit banging, you have to have something converting VPW/PWM/whatever to something the Rasberry PI can talk to (I'd guess some kind of serial via RS3232C or USB).

comment What are the benefits of premium (high octane) petrol?
@Matt True. Though sometimes when I put my Garage Queen away for the winter I'm lazy and I'll just fill it with premium. I don't imagine GM wants to rely on folks remembering to add Sta-Bil if they haven't filled up in a while, either.
