Techtom MDM-100

Postby AZhitman » Tue May 27, 2003 6:22 am

Something sijoko posted got me thinking. This instrument displays several engine readings through the ECU and is used by Nissan enthusiasts who can't afford a Consult for certain diagnostics.

I found a company that sells this instrument for $330 - Does anyone else have one? Would it be a good investment for a few NICO members to split the cost and ship it around as needed?

We discussed doing this with a Consult a while back, but there wasn't much interest... Perhaps we have enough enthusiasts now to make one or the other worthwhile.

Would it just plug into the consult hook up, or would it go right to the ECU???

Post a link, Hell, I may just buy one for me

I have one and it is a great addition.

It plugs into the data port in your left kick panel on the driver's side of the car. The port is dangling next to your fuse block.

I got it because my HUD was down and used it for a speedometer.

It can be taken out and used on other cars in 5 mins.

I have even used it on my friend Frank's car and he has a S14 with a SR20DET from a S14. We did his wiring right out of the S14 manual so it looks like everything went well.

Good luck with the group buy fellas. I know I had to wait an extra 6 months because a group of 300zx guys got a group buy going and bought all of the dealers stock.

There is also an audible warning sensor you can connect to the MDM100N. It has a light and a ringer to warn of you set points you have passed.

There is another cool item. It is a device that displays all of your readings on a video screen. You can run an in car camera and get your speed, RPM etc. Just like the police shows. :D

I am sorry if the post is rambling but I love my MDM.

I forgot I had two pictures of it in my car on the 'net. So here they are:

For some reason, I think this unit only works with 4/6 cyl motors. Oh course I might be thinking of the conZult unit. . .

It seems like we explored this a year or two ago, either on NICO or on the old Yahoo board...

If I remember correctly, it wasn't compatible with the Q :mad: - but it's worth checking into again - maybe they've updated it?

Hmmmm. Sijoko has an "old" Q IIRC....

Can someone find out if it is indeed incompatible?

Excellent! If it works on the Q, will it do a power balance test? If so I'd buy one on the spot :D

Just reads some of the simple parameters, doesn't do any tests, nor can you change the ecu input parameters as the Consult does.Nor does it have a memory...........just displays speed, injector open time, coolant temperature, ignition advance, MAF voltage, rpm.

No paramaters for trasmission, ABS, or body control modules, nothing about TCS or active or traction car systems!

I think it is still a great device. It gives your ecu the proper mouthpiece. Other systems can be used to tune your car.

Gentlemen,

The Techtom MDM-100 is a "Read Only" device. It will work on 92-95 Nissan/Infiniti vehicles.

For $330, I think it's a worthwhile device. I paid $440 for mine about 3 years ago and have no regrets.

sorry to bring this thread up since it looks dead, but I have a techtom...I use it on my 92 Stanza. It's not actually listed as being compatible with the stanza, but luckily it works fine. So i'm thinking it'll work witha wide range of cars, I believe cars made up until 1996. It may not talk to you like 'kit', but it sure as hell displays alot of information, i'd much rather have this little device than 10 gauges staring at me like i'm piloting a jet fighter.

Here's the list of what it monitors:

Hitman-

Is your source still around? I see a lot of these on Japanese Yahoo auction, but it is too hard to participate if you are not domestic.

I assume that anything that works in 92-95 works in 90-91. Maybe they think all of the cars that old are (or should be) off the road.

Yes I know I'm digging this up. But I would really like to get one. And having a hard time finding one.
