Re: Support for CECA

Unfortunately I don't have any feedback about it. The first step, if you have an ELM327 adapter, is to check what parameters can be read changing every engine group in the options. If you're lucky, you could find one or more groups fully compatible with your engine with all parameters readable, othe...

Re: Can't connect

I don't see problem, but with these notes: "distance since last regen." = is the distance correct for you? "time since last regen." = is the time correct for you? "oil ash residue" = seems low, but what's the mileage of your car? "low press. egr closing" = was the engine off when the screenshot was ...

Re: Can't connect

Good, all parameters are read correctly, but now we have to understand if the values are calculated correctly. To do this, the best way is to check a log file containing at least some minutes in normal engine condition and a full regeneration. Alternatively you can take some screenshot at different ...

Re: Can't connect

The engine CAAC isn't officially supported, but almost all parameters can be read setting the engine group 3 in the options. I'm not completely sure about the correctness of the values, maybe if you can post here a screenshot I can give a check. I don't have many information about this engine, I rec...

Re: No data logging when running in background?

There is no background service, the app is intended to be used with screen on. A workaround is to use the picture-in-picture (floating window) function keeping a little window on the screen. But if the screen is off, the life of the app depends on the android power save function: the OS can decide t...

Re: Data not auto-updating

It's a known bug, but I didn't understand where is the problem in the code. It seems that the app completely ignore the setting in the options, anyway I'm trying to apply some corrections for next update. You can solve the problem in this way: go into the options menu and disable the option "Automat...

Re: DDC engine and VAG DPF app

MY2017 2.0 TDI 140 KW QUATTRO (with torsen, not ultra) S-tronic

Currently it has 76.000 Km and the oil ash is at 25%. With the current rate is should reach the 100% at 300.000 Km more or less.

Re: VAG-DPF

The parameter that gives you an indication of the life is the oil ash percentage. In your case is 86% so your filter isn't at the end of its life. But this is just an indication, the real effect on the engine is the reduced distance between every regeneration. If you own the car since it was built, ...

Re: DDC engine and VAG DPF app

It's very variable, but my 2.0 TDI EURO 6b has more or less that rating.

In winter, my regenerations start every 200-250 km using the car mainly in city with some long trip of about 50-100 km in the weekend.

Re: Motor DPCA

Just a second: I see that your engine is a TSI so gasoline engine. This is the problem! The app works only with diesel engines with DPF system. I tried months ago to connect to a gasoline car with GPF system but the parameters setup is completely different and I don't have possibilities to study it ...

Re: Motor DPCA

This screenshot confirms that the communication is correct because the ECU parameters are read correctly.
This is the only engine groups that give you some value? I see the soot mass read correctly but with value 0 (that is wrong of course). All other engine groups give you "nd" only?

Re: DDC engine and VAG DPF app

In fact the standard limits I've seen are 24 or 28 or 30 grams, and usually the ECU starts to heat the filter only some grams below. Strange behaviors usually means faulty sensors, but it's the case to investigate deeper. In my personal experience I've seen that with the previous A3, the ECU started...

Re: DDC engine and VAG DPF app

When there is an adaptation in progress, for example after a battery or ECU replacement, usually the ECU starts with the most conservative parameters and then step by step it returns to the standard functionality.
The sensors history is normally used by the ECU for its calculations.

Re: DDC engine and VAG DPF app

I don't have the correct answer, but my personal opinion is that it happens because the ECU doesn't have historical data enough to be safe, so it launches regenerations closer than usual. Probably because the DPF system is risky for safety and every possibile fail must be prevented in advance. After...

It's better to write in English in this forum, I added the google translation to your message. iCar 2 is a good adapter, I own it and it works fine. Your engine is pretty recent and I don't have feedback about it. Using the free app, you could try to set the engine group 18 in the options menu that ...

Re: DDC engine and VAG DPF app

Your engine code should be DDCB.
Unfortunately I don't have any feedback about it and I don't know if it works with VAG DPF.

The only way is trying every engine group (in the options menu) to check if some of them is ok for your engine. Maybe using the free app before to buy the full.

Re: CXMA

Ok this is normal. I added this message (it isn't an error) to inform the user that the connected engine isn't in the supported engine list, so a quick analysis is required to find the best engine group. Without that message, in case of unsupported engine, the app would work using the engine group 0...
