I hope that I am putting this in the correct forum.
I have a 2021 GMC Sierra Elevation 4X4 with the 3.0L Duramax. I bought the OBDLink MX+ so that I could pair it with my phone and be able to use the app to monitor certain things as I drive. Either I don't know what I'm doing (most likely) or the OBDLink isn't reading certain things correctly.
I would like to be able to see how long it will be until my truck goes into a regen cycle. I'm not really sure if the OBDLink can tell me this. If it can, I don't know what the exact setting (I think they are called PIDs) is called.
The temp gauge reads about 25° hotter than the truck's gauge does.
The torque gauge usually reads at <100 ft. lbs. This obviously doesn't seem correct.
The horsepower gauge reads at <50 horsepower at all times. Again, doesn't seem to be correct.
Obviously, I'm doing something wrong. I don't know if I have chosen the wrong setting, or what. I didn't have any issues at all with setting up the device or pairing it with my phone. Any help would be greatly appreciated!!
So i recently lifted my 2006 silverado 1500. it’s a 5.3 regular cab short bed 4x4 with the basic interior (rubber floors, floor shifter). I recently lifted the truck on 35’s and tried to tune the truck so my speedometer was accurate. I have a flashpaq 2865. it works fine on my dads truck, a 2008 gmc sierra denali, and turns on as soon as i plug it in. the tuning functions work as it should. i plugged it into my silverado, and it wouldn’t even turn on. i can’t find anything on youtube or google about this, and my code reader works fine and turns on without any problems. i just can’t seem to get power to the flashpaq. anyone else having similar issues?

Hi all, my Sierra went into reduced power mode a few weeks ago and I replaced the accelerator pedal position sensor after reading P1125. The code went away immediately and all was well. Today, my car went back into limp mode. I took the tape off my APPS connector wires and they seem to be in fine condition, the guy must have just wanted to keep them bundled together. After unplugging my apps, I plugged it back in and it got out of limp mode and I was able to drive it for like 5 miles until it went back into REP. Same code, 1125. Again, I tried unplugging/plugging the connector back in and the code is gone. Any thoughts as to why it keeps going back to reduced power and goes away for a bit after unplugging and plugging the APPS back in?

I have a reasonably modified 2015 K1500 4WD Suburban and I was wondering if anyone had done or has info on switching it to an OBD2 system? I'm guessing engine and tranny will need to be replaced including the main computer. Has anyone done it? Does anyone have any opinions? The interior is super custom and I do NOT want a whole different truck. Money not an issue.
I've been trying to figure out which OBD scan tool to put on my Christmas list. I found this one that you use with wifi to your smartphone. I think i like it.
Good deal on amazon for $17.99 right now, but you also need to pay $10 for an app to get all the features I guess. Still pretty cheap in my opinion.
Just wondering if anyone has any experience with this or another app based code reader. Or do you think there is any reason to get a traditional code reader that doesn't rely on my phone?
