    Bluetooth ELM327 interface

    Hello everyone...last week I've gotten the bluetooth ELM327 interface with the software on a cd...VitalScan...after many attempts to connect to VitalScan no way...I tried all possible combinations bluetooth serial port and nothing...gives me "timeout error "...then find another soft...the Digimoto5 detect the ELM327 (v1.2) but I do not read anything on the car...this also gives me error connect...ScanTool, Dashcommand, PCMScan.

    Why dont read the car...I do wrong or forget to configure?

    My car BMW e46 330D (year 2003)

    Greetings and thanks

    You are not doing anything wrong. The car probably is not EOBD compliant. Didn't need to be until 1st January 2004.
    Find a compliant car to test the interface. Any petrol after 2001 or diesel after 2004 - as long as it's a normal passenger car and not a van.

    I read that the ELM327 bluetooth is a multi-protocol and support
    • Supports ISO 9141, KWP2000
    • Supports SAE J1850
    • Supports CAN busmy car use the ISO 9141/2 protocol

    I read it "OBDII Generic Communication Protocols by Manufacturer [Revised Feb. 17, 2003].pdf" and I see that my car use a ISO 9141/2

    The document you are referring to, only applies to vehicles sold in the US.

    Car does not have to comply to the EOBD-rules, which are only required from 2004 on.
    Try it on a compliant car like I said before.
