Default OBD2 PIDs specific for the pt cruise


Out of curiosity, a few weeks ago I bought a CAN Bus OBD2 adapter on deal extreme.
That adapter makes it possible to send obd2 commands via bluetooth to the on-board computer of my car. With those OBD2 commands you can read all PIDs that are sensors which measure things on your car like, for example, oxygen, temperature engine speed, etc.
Now I'm at the point where I can process the general PIDs (the range of PIDs that are the same for each car although not every car supports them all). The measurement data I can put into graphs and, if I connect a GPS to my laptop, I can make a google maps map (example: sensor_engine_load - Google Maps) where the color of the rout lines indicates sensor value (blue: low value, red: high value).
Of course, this program is open source.
Website: O2OO
The idea is that eventually will analyze the data and then give an overview of it and maybe give tuning tips.
Example of such a report in the current phase of the program (development version 0.4):

what is my question
Besides supporting 256 generic PIDs there are also brand and vehicle type-specific PIDs of sensors. The toyota prius for example, has a sensor that weighs the weight of the occupant of the passenger seat. My question is: does anyone have any documentation on these? Each brand / type of car is fine but pt cruiser limit (from 2007) pids are somewhat preferred as I own such a car.

follow-up question
If anyone has ideas about additions / adjustments to the PDF that my program creates, then those are also welcome!

As a new poster to the forum, the forum won't allow you to put all the links into your posting until you have a larger number in your post count. It thinks your trying to the forum.

Also check out the PT Cruiser Technical Documents Library on the top of the Tech & Performance section of the forum. Might help with some of your questions.
