Getting Torque to read tranny temp on JK 2012 diesel auto

Hi Guys,
Does anyone have the custom PIDs required to get Torque to read a JK Wrangler 2012 auto tranny? I have seen PIDs for pre 2012, but I require them for a 2012 on. Yes Torque was recently updated with two methods of reading tranny temp, but only one half works. The reading it gives is a copy of the water temp so it is crap and should not be used.
Drive used to, sorry, Drive can read Tranny temp. On my old phone (Android) drive works well, but I have updated to a new phone and drive won't even connect. Something about permission for Bluetooth. Do not bother to purchase drive if you have a new phone as the maker does not reply to emails (maybe he has shuffled on) and it will not work. The fact that I can get Drive to read tranny temp (old phone) means it can be done. I have come close to getting Torque to work, the gauge does communicate with the reader as I get the green heart beat, but it does not give temp.

As it seems Drive is now no longer supported, does anyone out there know how to pick it to bits (code) and get the goods!

True tranny temp on Torque would be the icing on the cake...

Bugger not a 2012

Hi TRAUMAhead,
Thanks for the heads up, close but no cigar. Things changed in 2012 and it looks like the PIDs were for 2008-2011.

Best bit is you pointed me to a new forum all about Torque. Now I am happier. Would be happiest with a tranny temp reading but.
Cheers Yt2...

My Auto tranny thanks you all.

Following TRAUMAhead's, Andi's and a bit of homework, I got Torque to read the Auto on a Aussie viechicle.
In Torque, go into settings - Manage extra PIDs/Sensors then add a custom PID. Make it look like this and there you have it.




Be kind to your Tranny and keeping an eye on him when in the rough stuff or towing.

Enjoy ...
