Magnum IntelliDrive engine monitor on '98 Beaver Patriot


Recommended Posts

So I have this "new to me" 1998 Beaver Patriot with a Magnum ID installed in the dash.  It is DOA and no longer supported.  So I'm looking to add some other kind of engine and systems monitor.  Do these old Beavers have an actual OBD port?  I was looking at the BlueFire 9-pin Bluetooth gizmo at Amazon https://www.amazon.com/dp/B01CS1HUXI/?coliid=I1VOC0FBMMLTTZ&colid=I290RGXG48UZ&psc=1&ref_=lv_ov_lig_dp_it_im but not seeing any round connectors under the dash.  I though this would be nice to stream the data to a small tablet mounted over where the Magnum ID device was.  In my brief exploration under the dash I did find a large bundle of wires ending at what looks like a DB-25 female connector.  Sort of like the old serial or parallel computer plugs.  What is this used for?

Has anyone found any other solutions to monitoring engine data on these older rigs?

What engine does it have?

Does it have an analog engine control or electronic ECM?

You can only use the Blue-Fire and SIlverLeaf on engines that have electronic ECM's where the ECM will send data to the Blue-Fire or SilverLeaf.

Cat 3126b, I believe.  Will have to dig out the book and see if that tells me if its analog or electronic ECM.
