    Tesla Model S OBD2/CAN adapter cable (Pre-Sept 2015)

    *** PRE-SEPTEMBER 2015 CARS ONLY ***

    OBD2/CAN adapter cable that allows you to talk to CAN bus 3 on the Model S. You would use this cable to connect a supported OBD2/CAN reader (ELM327, Blue Tooth, Wifi, Serial, USB, etc). The cable is 3ft long and is internally shielded for more accurate data If you want it shorter than 3ft, please include the desired length in a note with the purchase.

    Popular apps to use this cable include the amazing TM-Spy (iOS app is coming):
    https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.Turbo3.TMSpy

    Tons of other OBD2/CAN apps are out there, and not much information is given about the car through the car's "normal" OBD2 port under the dash. With a slight pull down of the cubby shelf, you can access the same OBD2/CAN port the Service Center uses all the time. Only pull the front of the shelf down, until you can reach your hand back and grab the cable. The port will pull from the left and you connect this adapter to it, along with the OBD2/CAN reader.

    Please contact me with any questions.

    Thanks!

    Nope. Tesla changed the OBD/CAN connector behind the cubby around Sept 2015. Everything after that date, including the Model X, uses a newer Sumitomo connector which is different. I'm sourcing those newer connectors and will make the cables with them, soon.

    I've been using TM-Spy as a tester right now. Here's a thread that shows screen shots and all the development happening. I've also used the old standby, Torque to give some data. When I have some time, I might play with some VBox-like apps to do performance numbers.

    All sold, but more parts are on the way. I'm still having a helluva time trying to source the connectors for the 9/2015+ cars. If I could get 50 pre-orders, I'd be able to swing it.

    Just ordered one for model S. Cheaper than trying to order the parts and have it shipped here to Canada :)
    Hope you can fulfill the order soon. Thanks!

    With this OBD2 converter... you can get diagnostics/read faults?

    This only connects to CAN bus 3. If there are diagnostic or fault messages being broadcast on that bus, then yes. It all depends on the software you're using.
