Obdii On Is200

Recommended Posts

Hoping someone can help me....

I bought the Informeter in Japan.


Unfortunately it does not work on my 2002 IS200 german model.

My problem looks like this topic: klick

The Altezza (both with 3S-GE and 1G-FE) is listed by Greddy to work with the Informeter.

I have already tested some cars( all german models): 99 Nissan Micra K11, 2005 Honda Stream, ~2000 Mazda Premacy (with Honda used in the preferences of the Informeter) work well with it.

Pins used by the Informeter are: 1,2,5,9.

Pins on the OBD in my car are: 2,3,4,5,10,12,13,16

By the cig lighter Pin 1 of the Informeter is supplied with 12 Volts+.

But the damned thing always says: Communication error. Check manufacturer".

Does anyone know the differences in the OBDII-configuration Altezza/Lexus IS?

How can I get it work? E-mail to greddy is not answered yet :-( .

regards from germany

the 3s-ge altezza doesnt use OBD II...and neither does the JDM 1g-fe engined altezza

as was stated in the topic you have linked to.

the item you have bought is designed for the japanese market

I've been looking at these recently and wondering if they work or not.

So can you just set it to honda setting without having to fit it in a honda first or does it auto configure or something?

Does it give decent readings? a/f etc?

I think my fault was, i never switched off ignition after changing the settings. So setting to Honda, then putting ingnition once off and on should work, even not sticked on to a Honda before :winky: .

Throttle-position (the throttle controlled by ecu, not the "position" given with your foot) and A/F-correcture are given out in Volts or Graphs. If you know the band of them, you can set min/max and get accurate readings. O2-reading is the nernst-lambda, so it switches permanent from rich to lean, isnt much helpful. A wideband-lambda is really better. A/F-C is only a A/F-correctur-factor, dont know what this really means and is good for.

With the informeter you can read out:



intake temp

water temp



A/F correcture

intake manifold pressure

You can define how it is shown, by graph, numbers, circle and needle. Peaks are also captured until you switch ignition off.

A similar unit is the Blitz R-Vit. This can (with a separate unit) show you A/F by wide-band and is much more effective than the read-out of the lambdas fitted by Lexus.

heres a video i made, accellerating from 0 to 170 km/h
