Nissan Consult Device, Genuine Hardware

Post by CoZZm0 » Thu Aug 08, 2019 9:38 am

Has anyone got/played with an Original Nissan Consult handheld device ?

I managed to get one recently but i'm finding information and program cards hard to come by, or just ridiculously expensive. Interested to know if anyone has played with one or has one (working or otherwise).

Cheers.

Lindsay Drife at Z Shop Melbourne had a couple of these a few years ago. He might be worth a try.

I have 3 original Consult 1's (one is for parts) and a Consult 2 ...and lots of cards (european and a couple of US cards)
Still use the Consult 1's quite a lot...actually got one in my car with me all the time :mrgreen:
They are especially nice for diagnosing or resetting other DDL capable ECU's in the car (ABS/HICAS/AIRBAG/NATS/AC/AT/4WD/ATESSA/etc)

Is there anything in particular you want to know ?

That is the thing, there are so many systems, but it isn't really worth the time to implement the commands for all of them for the various vehicles out there

Hey Eric, I'm interested in some other cards for collection and diagnostic purposes. I have a 1997 Primera Wagon with SR20VE and CVT and the CVT diagnostics don't work with the card i have because the card doesn't have the right program. I looked at the possibility of trying to replicate the cards, but found out (as i'm sure many before me have) that they aren't a standard PCMCIA card format connector and given the cost and rarity of the card, i'm not in a rush to crack one open to see if i can do anything about making a 'universal' card like the similar technology of the Tech2's.

I keep my ECUTalk LCD in the car with me all the time.

Also interested if you have, or have ever seen the RS232C cable for the unit?

Yeh totally fair there Matt, and in most cases, its features people aren't going to use for the time spent to implement the diagnostics, not to mention you're going to need a specific cable that can connect to each of the different diagnostic pins in the connector for the other systems.
