OBDII

I have a 1997 American Eagle Diesel Pusher on a Gillig Chassis with a Cummins 8.3 6 CTA. I would like to check the turbo boost, and monitor it while driving. I'm looking at these new OBDII bluetooth units that can monitor turbo boost and a million other things. I'm having a hard time finding the OBDII connection. I see several of the round screw type connections, none of the more rectangular connections.

Does anyone know where the OBDII connector is on this coach?
Will it be the older round or newer connector?
Is there an adapter to connect a newer OBDII instrument to an old round connector?
Will the older OBDII port even have the turbo boost information I am looking for.

Of course the option would be to put in an old fashioned pneumatic boost gauge, or an electrical sensor at the turbo and wires from the dash.

Any help would be appreciated!

Thanks.
Pete

Scan Gauge D has the connections needed.

Hi Pete! Welcome to IRV2! We're sure glad you joined the gang!

I use the ScanGuage D on our Windsor. Not sure where the connector will be but on most rigs it's under the dash near the steering column. Keep her between the ditches!



Good luck, happy trails, and God bless!


Merry Christmas!

I'm not sure but Your 97 Eagle might be All Mechanical, I'd suggest you call Gillig or American Coach and find out.

the odds are your coach is not OBDII. It is likely J1708. an ELM 327 device won't work with it, even with the Deutsch adapter.

the 9 pin port is round and should be near the steering column with another in the engine bay, likely near the trailer hitch. Should have a quarter twist off cover on it.
