  • 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!

                    ELM software

                    Hi,

                    here is a list and www links for all ELM 323 and ELM 327 OBDII interface software.

                    Sorry it took so long, didn't know how to upload the page.

                    just download the rar.

                      I have the exact same problem as you. Does your connector cable say "ODB Diagnostic Interface, Supports all ODBII Protocols" on it, and is it orange and purple? I think you might have the same as the one I got. I bought this horrible OBD2 connector for almost nothing on eBay, and now the only program that can communicate with it is a crippleware demo version of "ScanTool, some crappy shareware program that was written around the era of Windows 3.11 (I'm serious; it's really from the early 90's.)

                      I have tried ODBSpy, Scanmaster ELM, and OBD-Diag, and none of them can recognize it.

                      I wonder if I have the wrong driver installed on my laptop? Because this thing is supposed to connect on some sort of "serial usb" connection, and my laptop doesn't show any serial ports, so I wonder if it's really properly connected. Does anyone have any info on this?
