    ODBII or not OBDII?

    hi, a while ago i bought an elmscan 327, and recently i connected it, to test it, but i get no readouts...
    first i thought it had something to do with the front end i use (centrafuse), but when i tried it with scantool and had the same problem, i was pretty sure the problem was something else...
    i mailed the store where i bought the elmscan from, and he let me do some things to find the problem:
    in hyperterminal connect to the elmscan then
    type ATZ -> result: ELM 327 v1.1
    type ATSP 2 -> result: Ok
    type ATSP 0 -> result: Ok
    type 0100 -> result: unable to connect

    so, the store says my car is not obdII compatible. i called my garage and they say my car is obdII compatible, because they use a tech2 which reads everything through obdII...

    so, my question now is: is my car obdII compatible or not?

    it's an Opel (vauxhall) astra g from 2001 (built december 2000) with a 1700 dti engine (engine code Y17DT or Y17DIT, not sure)

    ps: for as far i can find on google, my car has to be compatible, but if it is, there should be some kind of label under my hood that says OBDII compatible...

    Obd-ii

    Hi,
    As the vehicle is diesel and pre-2004 there was no requirement for it to be OBD-II compliant. You'll find there is a proprietary (Vauxhall/Opel / MEMS??) protocol running from the ECU for diagnostics, but you won't get onto it with the ELM327.
