As Makers, we like to fiddle with things, figure out how they work and change them – often for the better but sometimes just for the hang of it – and our cars are no exception to this rule, which is why we believe it’s important to stock cool products like this DB9 Serial RS232 OBD2 Cable from DFRobot, which is designed to connect the ECU (Engine Control Unit) to OBD2 devices by the On-Board Diagnostics standard.

This enables you to alter the settings and preferences of your vehicle, with particular focus on the engine management protocols, to adjust your car for better performance, greater fuel efficiency, more torque at lower or higher rev’s, and much more fine-tuning that would typically be inaccessible without professional services.

And while these DB9 to OBD2 cables are typically used for troubleshooting problems within vehicle engine and electronic management systems, Makers like us love these cables because they let us mod’ our cars to improve a wide range of performance values. The cable also works well with the DFRobot CAN-BUS Shield V2.0 that we stock, but can be used for other OBD2 devices as well.
