Hi everyone,

I was wondering if anyone knows how to poll a vehicles ECU for a mileage reading.  I believe you can send a hex code to a vehicles ECU and have it ack back with a mileage reading.  Does anyone know how to do this?  Thanks.

The car would have to have the ECU installed for that to work

All cars after 1996 are required to have OBD II installed.  A scan tool will be able to interface with the OBD computer or possibly a cpu with an usb or serial -> obd connector.  Some manufacturers have specific codes only applicable to their car, but most likely I would think mileage would be a standard code.
