    Question someone please help me with diagnostics problem

    all i wanted a carpc for is to get some diagnostics.

    so i went and bought an interface ( http://www.obdpros.com/ )
    and bought pcmscan.

    so i went and ran everything and it says it is connected but won't pull any diagnostics! i spent a lot of money on it i would really appreciate it if someone could help me out. the car is a 1998 ford mustang.

    also, the problem isn't pcmscan. i also tried one of the free programs that came with my interface and i had the same issue. it says it connects, but doesn't actually read any information!

    I am no expert yet, but it will be helpful to know what make/model/year car we are talking about.

    I doubt you'll find technical help for that product here. Have you tried their forums or calling them?

    Have you tried it on a different car?

    The OBDPro interface is a solid unit and should be working fine. It is possible that you may have received a defective hardware interface.

    If you can send me a techlog from PCMSCAN, I'll take a look and see if I can figure out what is going wrong. Email [email protected] with the techlog, or let us know and we'll tell you the steps to generate the techlog.
