    My ELM323 only works with 'ScanTool'

    Hello,

    I recently finished making my own ELM323 OBD interface and only 1 software application that I found (ScanTool) works with my laptop, and to make things worse less than half of the parameters are available. Any other software app that I tried does not even see the interface (Car-code/Pro-scan etc).

    Has anybody any ideas what is going wrong?

    Thanks

    that is odd. supposively there are plenty of third party software programs that will work with the ELM chip. from what i gathered, its simply just a serial interface. something maybe wrong with your setup possibly?

    I made the cuircuit from the ELM schematics, and it does the exact same thing with other EOBD/OBDII cars.

    I have double checked the ciurcuit a few times and all is perfect (its squashed onto a PCB 2/3rd's the size of a matchbox), I am going to rebuild another larger PCB and try again.

    In the meantime I will try digimoto.

    Thanks for your help!

    Since the release of Digimoto 4.03 we have cleared up many issues regarding integration with the Volvo line. If you have any questions regarding integration with your specific type of vehicle you can always e-mail me ([email protected]) or call me (414.232.6121) directly.
