I'm trying to get the steering angle of my car via the OBD2 port. I'm using a usb adapter, and Pyserial to read from it.

I found this: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/OBD-II_PIDs

Which lists the PIDs available. It works for the speed etc but I can't find the steering wheel angle (which is supposed to be available through OBD2).

Any idea on how to get it ?

My car is a Renault Espace IV

  • Can you edit your question to include the make and model of your car. Cars don't use all possible OBD codes, so yours may not send it...

  • Make sure you're pulling PIDs from the ESC module or sometimes the ABS module.

There is no standard PID for the steering angle defined in the official standard. You need to consult manufacturer specific documentation for your vehicle to find out whether there is a PID available for that. Chances are you can't get it via a PID but need to resort to lower level CAN commands.
