    tell me if its possible to have an OBD II based alarm system...

    basically a car alarm that connects directly to the OBD II port to complete all functions whether it be a stand-alone unit or if it were to be set up through a car pc

    this may be a shot in the dark but i was curious

    Why do you need an alarm to interface with the OBDII system?
    OBDII is mainly for diagnostics reporting/MIL reset,etc...
    What are you thinking it will do?

    Since this discussion would involve connecting to the ECU, it's off limits according to the Automotive Guidelines policy.

    Besides, it wouldn't work.
