Cantucci, can you explain why you want to plug into the obd socket? The location on your lhd should be under the dash next to hood/bonnet release same as cx30

I have a Bluetooth dongle in my CX-5 ODB2 socket for data logging. All the PCM data is transmitted over the CAN bus, so it’s interesting to learn more about what the car is doing, but not telling you about!

Hopefully I’ll be able to learn something interesting about what the MX-30 is doing via this port!

Modern cars make it too easy… back in the day I had to actually take the ECU out of my ‘91 MX-5, desolder the CPU… Put it in a test circuit, trick it into entering a diagnostic mode and then dump the EPROM… I then spent many an evening reading over horribly written 6800 assembly code just to find the mapping tables… those were the days…

I have an obd2 dongle and it does not work on the MX30. It did work on my MX5 and previous CX5's.
EV's , don't have to follow the obd2 protocol like petrol cars do.

I guessed as much. Though I suspect it’s not necessarily a protocol problem, but rather the logging application not knowing what PIDs to look for!

ABRP has a very specific list of cars it is currently compatible with and the Mazda isn't on there. I would suggest contacting ABRP to find out how to contribute to the compatibility list

OBD2 was standardized in 1996, so that all garages could read and repair fault codes on all car brands.
However, in 1996 there were no electric cars and as a result they are not covered by those rules.
With electric cars we are now in the same situation as before 1996 with petrol cars. Anyone can develop their own software for their electrical models and obd2 is no longer the standard.
