Currently I'm developing an Android app that uses an OBD2 ELM327 device to read some data from the car, so I could use it in my application. Now, when I want to read the fuel, fuel consumption or something else concerned the fuel, I receive "NO DATA" from the OBD. Does anybody have any experience with this? I tried it on a BMW, Mercedes and Kia.

Would be appreciated! Thanks

  • Welcome to Motor Vehicle Maintenance & Repair! Are you able to pull other PIDs from the reader? You are sure you have a connection and the device is running properly? If you're not sure, you can use a free app like Torque Lite to pull up information for confirmation. There is a selection within Torque to give you fuel information if the vehicle provides it to you, so you can make sure everything with the ELM327 device is working correctly. – Pᴀᴜʟsᴛᴇʀ2 Dec 16 '17 at 20:38
  • I do have a connection and I am able to pull other PIDs, only the PIDs about fuel returns "NO DATA". – Iliasvw Dec 16 '17 at 20:43
  • Have a look at these two questions : mechanics.stackexchange.com/questions/50391/… AND mechanics.stackexchange.com/questions/50231/… – Solar Mike Dec 16 '17 at 20:50
  • Have you tried to pull PIDs 00, 20, 40, 60, 80 to see if the vehicle reports that it is able to answer the PIDs you want to pull? – bolav Dec 18 '17 at 8:40
