  • Drivers ELM 327 USB

    Hi, I just installed my OBDII cable, but i can not find the drivers anywhere...
    it's an ELMscan 327...
    I searched for the drivers (on scantool.net) but the ones I downloaded from there don't have a setup file included, and when i let windows search the drivers in the folder I extracted the files to, windows cannot find any...
    I'm using windows XP

    can anyone help me?

    ps: it's an elmscan with USB

    Have you checked your installation disk for the driver?

    You should contact the seller and inquire which USB chipset your unit is using.

      I don't have the cd no more (or can not find it anymore ) so I will have to download the drivers somewhere...

      i think i may have found them... will try to install them tomorrow..

        usually, when you find a solution to an issue, posting that solution is generally beneficial, especially for the other members of the fourm. For instance, this guy could have used the link: http://www.mp3car.com/vbulletin/1160678-post13.html

          thx for pointing that out, but I was not able to fix my problem.
          the drivers i found were not the right ones, and i stopped trying to get obd2 to work.

                ive taken winzip and acrobat reader out to save space on the file

                Ive also got it workin

                it was not workin because my touchscreen was not compatible in the scantool program so i used keyboard shortcuts.. hopefully a mouse would work better than a touchscreen.

                        Mine uses a virtual COM-port, and as far as I remember, they all do..\

                        Try these: http://www.ftdichip.com/Drivers/VCP.htm

                        Most virtual COM-port devices use the FTDI chip.
