Please pardon my ignorance as I am new to all this,
I have a 2000 E39.
I have a Scantool with an ELM323 chip in it. I am able to get info from ecu using free software from scant00l website.
I want to use BMW cars0ft, but when I c0nnect using this software instead (I have assigned right p0rt t0 it) I keep getting err0r saying check cable
What am I d0ing wr0ng?
Yes I spilt a pint of beer on my keyboard (I'm on my laptop now)
I was thinking that you may need the correct bmw cable to access the proprietary information that carsoft is supposed to provide. Just thought there may be a way around it before I start spending on one.
Does anyone know of any other software thats good for BMW diagnostics? (it seems to be missing on a cylinder no fault codes reading though)
