Asalam U Alaikum Brothers!
Today I want to disclose the very reason why I joined this forum after having been maintaining a Daewoo Racer for past five years and silently observing the comments on this forum for so long.
Actually, I have some worthy projects in my mind regarding this handsome vehicle and need to share it with you all, to seek ur advice. The prime requirement of these projects emerged due to following reasons:-
1) To make the maintainability of this Car easy for all
2) To remove the “havva” of Daewoo Racer’s maintenance issues from our minds, as created by Toyota/Suzuki market dealers and mechanics
3) To make the drive of this vehicle a pleasure on Pakistani road conditions right from Soost to Gawader.
Besides solving our day to day issues, I need u all to help us out in solving these particularly long term issues, so that we make life of all Daewoo lovers easy.
Project # 1
Aim: To create abundant availability of ‘Scan Tool / Analyzer’ so that it is accessible to all of us.
a) Can a generic OBD-1 scan tool work with Racer’s ECM? If Yes, from where we can buy one? If No, can we make one of our own?
b) Reading the codes is off-course not a problem. However, reading sensors’ output and further analyzing it for printing in a readable format is an issue. So what is the data structure of the ‘serial data output’ of ECM’s OBD connector? This would help us in making a front end application (GUI) for our own analyzer.
c) If accepted, in what format we can provide input to ECM through our software based Analyzer Tool, so that we may alter the actuator’s to test their serviceability and adjustment levels?
I hope these are workable issues and not beyond our capabilities. So waiting for kind comments and discussion from u all, including @testdriver. Relatively easier projects are still to come!
Thanx and Fi Aman Allah to all brothers.
