The BIM-01-2 OBD-II (J1850/CAN) Interface allows you to plug directly into the engine diagnostic port, extracting engine and transmission data from the vehicle’s computer (ECM). The BIM-01-2 will collect and output the following information to Dakota Digital Instrument Systems *:
Available on most vehicles (see below):***
Check Engine Indicator
Intake Air Temperature
Ambient Air Temperature
Due to the various factory and modified ECM’s, additional data including (Intake Temp, Transmission Temp, Ambient Air Temp, Oil Pressure, and Gear Position) may be available, but will vary from application to application. Dakota Digital cannot guarantee the presence or accuracy of the Coolant Temp, Intake Temp, Transmission Temp, Ambient Air Temp, Oil Pressure, Boost or Gear Position displays since this is a function of the ECM and matching OEM functional sensors.
*The BIM-01-2 is designed to decode the information provided by the ECM through OBD-II and supply this information to the RTX, HDX, VHX and VFD3 systems with a black plastic control module. For any BIM-compatible control boxes which contain the 3.5mm headphone jack BIM input, add part number 394193 adaptor harness. Earlier instrument systems with an aluminum control module are not capable of BIM connectivity
**The BIM-01-2 is designed for J1850 and CAN OBD protocols only.
Compatible with OBDII protocols SAE J1850 VPW, SAE J1850 PWM and ISO 15765 CAN 500k 11 bit identifiers that follow the SAE J1979 PID protocol.
If you are concerned about compatibility with your vehicle please contact our sales or tech department.
***Ford Performance Coyote crate engine packages provide a limited amount of data available through the OBD port. Because of this, the BIM-01-2 is not recommended
****GM Connect & Cruise packages do not transmit the gear position data, preventing the BIM-01-2 from acquiring this information.
