About the only one that works for us is the Transmission temp sensor. Would love to get more codes, but nobody here seems to be experimenting with it.

Not sure what you're going to do with the information you get if you don't understand what O2 sensor data is. As I said - you can easily get transmission fluid temp from the sensor. That will save you installing one in your pan if you tow a trailer, for instance.

What specifically do you want to know about your vehicle that the Scangauge might be a better tool for than an Actron scan tool, for instance?

On their website it says that you can use the x-gauge for engine run time minutes/hours,fuel levels,oil life as u stated transmission temp. I want to have access to all the gauges possible. That's why Im asking if I use the codes for ISO,VPW,PWM 2 make it easier to check what ones work and what ones don't .

I think it automatically detects what your truck is. When I plugged it in it said VPW for my '03. When you enter the codes start with TXD and go all the way to NAM. I didn't have any problems programming anything except I think the engine torque (under GM VPW). I programmed horsepower(not sure how accurate it is), short/long term fuel trim, both O2 sensors, A/F ratio, knock retard, remaining oil life, and tranny temp. I know the elapsed time since engine start works but i erased it. Some of mine came from the list "GM VPW" and some from the "ISO and VPW" lists. I'm sure some more of them work that i didn't try, but i don't need 'em. Just try them, if the don't work you can just erase them. Good luck!

Curious if the knock retard values were believable. When I programmed the x-gauge values for VPW often I'd get numbers in the 70-90 range. Scanguage tech support suggested I try the following:
TXD: 6C10F12211A6(01)
RXF: 0462851106A6
RXD: 3008
MTH: 01C202000000
NAM: Kr
Knock retard is more believable using this setup.

I tried your setup. I'm getting close to the same numbers, they are just in decimal form now. I get 0.0 at idle or no gas. I get between 0.0 and 2.4 when driving normally (city) and when I floor it, it will jump as high as 7.5. Just wondering what your numbers are?

I get similar values. At steady throttle they will drop back to zero.

Just wondering !!!
Is it normal that the A/F Ratio value reads a steady 14.6 value ?? It rises slowly as it warms up then it freeze at 14.6.
