PA Soft 1.4 question

Anyone know if it can read Voltage? Like the live data option?

Live data has limited support. I have never figured out what DME supports it, but EVERY car I have ever used my PA Soft on did not support live data.

If you need Voltages, you do not need PA Soft, see the 4th link below in my signature for the Hidden OBC Menu and display Voltage on the OBC display.

You go to DME and click on Live data tab and then you hit "+" and it will get you to PAGE2 of live data and you'll see the voltage.

No problem, let me know if you need more help with this scanner. It will be a good reason for me to get it out of the basement and play with it :-)
