Online OBD2 PID Converter: Quickly Decode Your Car Data


Need to convert raw OBD2 data into human-readable form?

This online OBD2 converter transforms raw OBD2 data and returns OBD2 PID info.

Example: Enter 410c0bAFAAAAAA (raw Engine RPM from a CANedge).

The OBD2 protocol provides a standardized method for requesting data across car brands. Using a device like the CANedge CAN bus data logger, you can send OBDII PID requests into the CAN bus of the vehicle. If the vehicle supports the requested OBD PID, it will reply with an OBD2 response. This comes in the form of a CAN frame, typically with CAN ID 7E8, and with a data payload that contains the data length, OBD2 PID and the raw data payload.

Since the OBD2 PID decoding rules are public, you can thus extract OBD2 data parameters across different car brands in a consistent way. The decoding rules can e.g. be found on Wikipedia or in our OBD2 DBC file, which can be used to easily decode OBD2 data recorded with a CANedge OBD2 data logger.

The purpose of this online OBD2 decoder tool is to assist in providing a basic understanding of how to decode OBD2 PID data. You can enter data payloads for most of the common OBD2 PIDs to see it broken down into the OBD2 PID, mode and formula components to produce the decoded physical value. Try it out with data for e.g. Engine Speed using our example above.

If you want to learn more about OBD2, see our OBD2 intro and our OBD2 data logger articles.

If you're interested in trying out actual OBD2 data, check out our OBD2 data & DBC sample files recorded with the CANedge2. Via the link you can also download the free asammdf GUI software tool, which lets you view the raw OBD2 data - and load the OBD2 DBC file to decode the data into human-readable form. The log file contains data for e.g. vehicle speed, engine speed, intake manifold absolute pressure, throttle position and engine coolant temperature.
