It wasn't a prototype but had the latest firmware on it. No results, l.e. Nothing showed up which I reported back to him. I can only assume they are either still working on it or have given up on it.

Wanted to bump this back up to the top, wondering if anyone has had any luck yet on OBD2 tech with anyone so you can monitor transmission temp and oil pressure on a gas engine Promaster? If so, which company has made it?
Thanks.

I never heard back from them after I sent him the data results.

This post, not mine, was dated Oct '18, might work on the PM?, for those of you with ScanGauge.

I just got these codes from ScanGauge to program an X-Gauge into the ScanGauge so it reads the temperature in the transmission of the 62TE 6 Speed Transmissions found in the 2012 - 2019 Dodge Grand Caravans.

I thought I would post in this section for future reference for those searching the Internet for this information, as you need to know the temperature of the fluid in the pan for correct refilling procedure using a measuring dipstick like the one Dorman makes. Not everyone has access to a proper scan-tool to read this information and most cheap ones will not do it, but they might have a ScanGauge or have a friend that has one. Or might just want to watch the temperature as they are towing.

X-Gauge Programming codes:
TXD: 07E022B010
RXF: 046205B00610
RXD: 3010
MTH: 000100400000
NAME: TF1

I realize you can't do this while driving, but a non contact lazer thermometer pointed at the trans pan will give you a good idea of the oil temp in the transmission. I do this when I use a dipstick to check its level.

I dont bother. Fully warm and idling in neutral on level ground, the spec is 2” on the stick. Set it there and forget about it.
I could be mistaken, but I have evidence that this particular trans is tolerant of being underfilled, but not tolerant of being overfilled, which is why the filling is such a proceedure. I have personally run our trans OUT of fluid (leaking) several times. It starts slipping, then just doesnt move. Add more and it worke fine again.
But overfilling it might put the fluid level up by the spining bits. This would froth the fluid and aerate it, and trying to drive on air bubbles would likely cause rapid wear. My guess is that this is why the factory is so anal about the level.

Linear Logic customer service me an email (November 2020) with info on this topic that I have pasted below AND it worked on the SG2 we just installed in our 2020 Promaster 3500 Travato:

"These XGauges worked for a 2017 customer, for engine oil temperature and transmission fluid temperature:
Engine Oil Temperature (°F)
TXD: 10F121E8
RXF: C32100000000
RXD: 3008
MTH: 00090005FFAD
NAM: OIL

Transmission Fluid Temp (°F)
TXD: 10F1229110
RXF: C46205913610
RXD: 3010
MTH: 000100400000
NAME: ATF

On your ScanGaugeII (with the vehicle running) select MORE> MORE> scroll to XGAUGE> EDIT. There should be a number on the top right of the screen. For each XGauge, you will need to select a different number (memory slot) that does not already have an XGauge saved under it. Once you select the number, press EDIT (bottom left) and you will be prompted to enter in different parts of the code, pressing OK> after each part. Each XGauge has five parts: the TXD, RXF, RXD, MTH, and NAM. Simply enter in the corresponding codes and after entering in the NAM press OK> and SAVE>. The XGauge should now be with your other gauges. These directions can be located on page 40 of the user manual."

NOTE: When I contacted UltraGauge with the same questions on Oil and Transmission they said, essentially, sorry we don't have a fix - thus my Scangauge 2 purchase.

Scan Guage 2 in 2019 ProMaster Gas. Have the following working.
Mode CANLF

Engine Oil Temperature (°F)
TXD: 10F121E8
RXF: C32100000000
RXD: 3008
MTH: 00090005FFAD
NAME: OIL


Transmission Fluid Temp (°F)
TXD: 10F1229110
RXF: C46205913610
RXD: 3010
MTH: 000100400000
NAME: ATF


Fuel Level (30 sec updates)
TXD 07DF012F
RXF 0441052F0000
RXD 2808
MTH 006400FF0000
Name FLV


Full list of gauges shown, parked at idle about 5 mins

ATF = 41
OIL = 42
FLV = 74
HPR = 16.0
CPM = 9999
VLT = 14.4
IA = 40F
GPH = 0.91
IGN = 18
LOD = 21
LP = CLSD
MAP = 4.6
MPG = 0
MPH = 0
RPM = 1036
TPS = 12
WT = 150
AVG = ---
TFC = 0.42

this is a newer scan gauge so firmware is 4.5
support had suggested trying the other x gauges in cansf but only fuel level worked
as mode comes up as CANLF I plan to try some of those next

Tried the CANLF codes for Xgauges on the Scan Gauges 2 as they are what FIAT uses and found much more success. Here are the ones I know work from the CANLF list (manually added via xgauge and preprogrammed from factory. The pdf notes others tried and not working too.

Still no Oil Pressure. Support Rep gave one to try but it was from CANSF list and did not work.

Gauges of interest for some might be
Trans Fluid Temp
Oil Temp
Engine Water Temp (these vans run hot)
Catalyst Temps for Bank 1 and Bank 2
