    You need one that is compatible with your car! NOT CF

    IIRC though, CF was made to work with the ELM scanner.


    MAKE SURE IT WILL WORK WITH YOU CAR THOUGH OR YOU'LL BE WASTING YOUR MONEY!!!

    Get the obd2allinone unit. It works great with centrafuse and is compatible with all obdII protocols.
    EPIA 800, DWW-7VGA LCD w/Touchscreen, 256mb ram, dvd rom, ati radeon 7000 video card, 80 gb 3.5" hard drive.

    But you STILL need to check that your car is OBDII because not all are Especially outside the US!

    i've tried two calbes. one is elm based, is working with other software than cf, but with less details. i've also tried a kl/kkl cable only for audi,vw,seat, works good with other software than cf, and absolutely not in cf. the reason is, that it's an absolutely different type of cable, which means, protocol is in software, not like the elm in hardware.

    OBD I was never really a standard, so interfacing to it is a real headache. There are stand-alone readers out there, but they're very expensive. I've never seen a module for OBD I like we're talking about for OBD II.

    The OP has a 2003 Hyundai Santa Fe, so I'm pretty sure it will have OBDII, most likely the ISO version.

    As far as I'm aware, the only officially supported OBDII cable is the ScanTool.com ELMscan range. Don't spend extra money on the expensive one they push on their front page that does all 3 variants of OBDII (unless you plan on changing your car regularly) get the ELMscan 3 in the correct variant for your car.

    Also I can confirm that the OpenPort cable from tactrix.com does NOT work with CentraFuse, so don't get that.
