    Dash Cam - a bit of a long shot

    So guys not expecting the earth, but maybe somebody might wanna help
    Its not really too much to do with VCDs more to do with the OBD port on my car

    So I drive a UK 2007 Seat Altea Petrol, I bought a dash cam that connects up to the OBD port, The camera works and records just fine, but it doesnt get anything from the OBD port apart from power, no car data is received, it doesnt seem to sync
    The camera is a Blacksys CL100B, I bought it thinking it would be okay for all cars but it comes with a list of cars it is good for, guess what my 2007 Seat Altea isn't on the list

    So I was wondering if maybe another cars OBD code might work, I have tried the VW Golf Mk6 and also the Passat, Jetta, none work

    Was trying to get my head around how does each car differ, do you need a different set off 'login / data parameters" to connect to the OBD port to say the Golf, Passat or Jetta

    The codes Blacksys use look like 005-000-190 for the Golf versus 005-000-161 for the Passat and 005-000-162 for Jetta
    I was wondering if this meant anything re the login credentials for say any device via OBD or if maybe this is code just unique to the Blacksys kit

    There are no other cars listed in the VW, Seat, Audi section

    blacksys.co.kr/eng/support/download_read.php?id=202&no=0&field=title&search_word=obd is the link to the list of cars if anyone is interested lol

    I have tried emailing Blacksys but got nothing back

    Here's hoping thanks for reading this far

    All the best

    Generic OBD-II is well standardized, although there are four different protocols that have been permitted over the years, but VAG only used two of them. There are no "logins" for reading generic OBD-II data.

    005-000-190, 005-000-161, and 005-000-162 don't mean anything to me. I suppose they could be PID numbers? But that doesn't make much sense because 000 would be a list of supported PIDs in the between 001 and 031...

    The engineering problems are likely insurmountable. It would be like proposing to land a rocket booster section on a barge floating in the middle of the ocean.

    Wow cheers UWE, to be honest I wasn't holding out too much hope of any sort of reply but it really seems like you know your beans and OBD stuff too !!!!!

    Just wondering how clever you are LOL

    You mentioned that there are generally 4 different protocols, but VAG only used 2 off them, think i got that bit right

    Just wondering if you knew what protocol the 2007 Seat Altea (5P) I drive uses, and is it the same protocol as any of the following
    POLO - 2013
    JETTA - 2012
    PASSAT - 2005
    GOLF 6 - 2012
    CARAVELL - 2012

    Cheers again mate and owe you a beer

    I'm pretty sure the Altea was based on the Golf Mk5 platform.

    If so, if memory serves they use CAN when connecting the VAG way, but EOBD/OBD-II (standardised engine management) diagnostics are on KWP2000.

    A 2005 Passat might do the same, but I'd imagine all the others are new enough to use CAN for EOBD/OBD-II too.
    Apparently I should put something witty or profound in here...

    No, I can't say for sure. It may very well depend on which engine the car has. Some of the early Mk.5-based cars used CAN for all the proprietary diagnostics while keeping a K-line to the ECU (and TCU, if equipped) for OBD-II on the K-Line.

    If you have (or know someone who has) VCDS, try the generic [OBD-II] button. VCDS will tell you exactly which protocol is being used for OBD-II.

    A 2005 Passat would still be on K-line; the latter 2010 and newer cars would most likely be CAN.
