Hello All,

Does anyone know is there a compilation of MG ZS EV PID's for the Torque Pro app. It would be handy to have. I had it set up on the ioniq and it was very handy.

Thanks

Any ideas how to make use of this PID data for a Bluetooth obd2 with torque pro or any other app?

I can connect to the OBD2 but it can't connect to the ECU.

It would be handy, I used Torque Pro to check and find out which HV battery cells are low to repair/replace on SWMBO's old 2006 Prius.

Just found this page which might be helpful? I might have a crack at this some time, unless somebody has already done it?

I've never worked with Torque or OBD-II PIDs previously so it took a bit of fiddling but I've now got a set of PIDs for Torque Pro which work with my MG ZS EV saved at:

This would not have been possible without the excellent reverse engineering work done by the OVMS community.

Wow, thats great work. Are these available as a download file?

Great work! Just uploaded those extended PIDs of yours to Torque Pro and most seem to work. However, when you try to create Virtual PIDs that add or subtract two of your extended PIDs I've discovered they don't work because the equation editor doesn't like your filenames with the leading dots. I wanted to subtract the Cell Min Volts from the Cell Max Volts value to show the Balance Error, I got it to work after creating two new PIDs with simple filenames eg ezs_cellmaxv

Hi @Vince31
In-fact the file you've used is a historical one that I received part-way through development from the Thai ZS EV user group. My PID list is called "MG ZS EV.csv" (as you can see in the instructions) and it does not have any leading dots. It also already contains a Virtual PID called "MG BMS Voltage Delta" which should give you the info you are looking for :)

How similar would the PID file be, for the MG5?

Strange, but PID means something totally different for me. I used to work in the control & instrumentation business, for whom PID means Proportional, Integration and Derivative control (A PID Controller is something like a thermostat but usually gives a variable output to ramp a heater, pump or whatever up and down, instead of a simple on/off switch like in your central heating thermostat. It's also able to cope with the rate at which temperature is closing in on the set value [differential] and the length of time it's been different from the set value [integral], as well as the simple thermostat-like difference between set point and measured value [proportional]).

For those who understood those things (I never really did) it was simple. For us mere mortals it was akin to Black Magick or similar dark arts.

Even more confusingly, people in the control and instrumentation industry also talked about "P&ID's" - Piping and Instrumentation Drawings. (I did "get" them though 😁).

Funny old world, innit?
