What is the default wiring the OBDii plug comes setup as? I can see the Pin 6 trace on the board goes to red, but the green wire trace I can't see, I imagine it is on the back of the board. Is it on Pin 14 already? I don't have the board in front of me, but I recall the White wire going to pins 4+5 (GND), can't see the black wire trace, does it go to pin 16?

When I plug the OBDii into my car, it freaks out and I get all sorts of error messages on the Driver's Information Center screen (2008 Pontiac G8 GT). Just need to make sure everything is wired correctly. Error message go away if I disconnect the cable and restart the car.

For reference the G8 OBDii connector is pinned as follows:

Pin 1 - Low Speed LAN (Not planning on monitoring for now)
2+3 - Not used
4+5 - GND
6 - High Speed LAN +
7-13 - Not used
14 - High Speed LAN -
15 - Not Used
16 - Batt Pos. Voltage.

Based on Gary's reply to <a href="https://plus.google.com/103292489750574578730/posts/c3kR5GBVFCc">this Google+ post</a>, it looks like the default pins are the High Speed Bus on pins 6/14 on the OBDII connector.

@Jsn95 After taking apart the cable I can confirm your assumptions: the green wire does in fact go to Pin 14 and the black goes to Pin 16. (following the trace on the back)

Looks like your connection to CANBus Triple was lost, please wait while we try to reconnect.
