An ALDL cable is an OBD1 diagnostic scantool suitable for diagnosing engine fault codes and live engine data found in VR-VY Holden Commodores!

The ‘language’ spoken is called ALDL (Assembly Line Diagnostic Link), it is a very unique protocol that General Motors implemented on our commodores.

If your interested in hearing some technical geek speak about ALDL, click here to read more..

Some of the features and abilities of our kits include:

  • Reading engine fault codes
  • Clearing fault codes and engine light warnings (CEL)!
  • Reading live engine data
  • Easy to use one click connecting software!
  • And much more!

Our kits allow you to take full advantage of this communication line, providing professional diagnostic abilities at a fraction of the cost of factory scantools.

What can be diagnosed in my car?

“Diagnostics Made Easy..”

In conjunction with our ALDL cable, our Advanced Engine Diagnostics (AED) application lets you have professional diagnostic capabilities at a fraction of the cost of overpriced factory tools!

AED is designed to be extremely easy to use. It seamlessly interacts with your cars engine computer (ECM) to read diagnostic fault codes and live engine/transmission information on a modern instrument dash display.

What you see in AED, is exactly the same live engine/transmission information you would find in OEM tools, except made to be affordable and accessible to everyone!

Sometimes viewing live data is not always enough, or too much information to view at once, which is why AED is capable of saving and replaying live logging sessions. This advanced replaying ability lets you review your cars health and performance in your own time, and keep records of sensor outputs to compare with future issues and logs.

Our clients say

"Jason from Envyous Customs was happy to answer my questions about what kit and software I needed for my VY Commodore. It found a MAF fault straight away and confirmed a bad oxygen sensor"
"Instantly saved me a trip to the dealership for a dirty throttle position sensor! Thanks Jase!"
"I always thought using diagnostic tools would be difficult, but this has been made to be very simple. Works great on my Sons V6 VT and my VR V8"
"After using AED to see live engine data, I also purchased the airbag software SDT to read an airbag fault that keeps going off. Fault pointed to a clock spring, cleared straight away after replacing, awesome gear!"

Frequently asked questions

Great Question! 99% of people ask us this because it can be a  bit confusing with all the information online.

The following vehicles listed below use ALDL for Engine and Transmission Diagnostics:

  • ​​​​​​​VR V6/V8
  • VS V6/V8
  • VT V6 and 5.0L V8
  • VX V6
  • VU V6
  • VY V6
  • VT/VX/VY V6 Super Charged


The following vehicles ARE NOT suitable for engine/transmission diagnostics (see our OBD2 ELM327 kit!):

  • VT LS1 V8
  • VX LS1 V8
  • VY LS1 V8
  • ALL VZ’s *See note 1
  • ALL VE’s
  • ALL VF’s

*Note1: VZ’s use an ALDL cable for airbag diagnostics only.

We have made installation as simple as possible. There is two main steps:
1) Install the ALDL Cable driver
2) Install your chosen software.

Both the driver and software are available by a download link after purchase, and can also be optioned to have a physical copy included (CD or USB).

  • Body Diagnostics (BD)

Please make sure to checkout our the product pages for those softwares to ensure they are suitable for your needs!

So technically a Holden VZ or VT/VX/VY LS1 V8 vehicles have two different diagnostic protocols, think of these like different languages, these are:
1) OBD2 CANBus/VPW which is used for Engine and Transmission Diagnostics (See our ELM327 OBD2 Kit!)

2) ALDL which is used for all other systems including airbags, Body Control Module, instrument cluster ect.

If you wanted to view airbag data on a VT/VX/VY or VZ, you would need to use our ALDL cable and our software “SRS Diagnostic Tool”(SDT).
Whereas if you wanted to view live engine data in a VZ or LS1 V8 vehicle, you would need to use our OBD2 ELM cable with our application “Software on ELM Street”(SOE).
