Yea, and OBDPro is supposed to read j1850. But mine just wont connect. Says it cannot detect protocol.
Yeah that should have no problems.
1. Is the power led lit on the OBDPro?
2. Can you connect to the OBDPro via hyperterminal?
Once you connect via hyperterminal, type in ATSP0, and hit enter.
Then type in 0100 and let me know what happens.
I have never used hyperterminal before, so I really dont know. I do know that the laptop is seeing the OBDPro. The Red LED is on, and communication starts, but suddenly stops. The vehicle is gone, and I probably wont be around it again till possibly monday. I will let you know.
Just to update the thread, after several different attempts at connecting and double and tripple checking everything OBDPro's came to the conclusion of faulty hardware. They are sending a new unit as we speak. Great guys to deal with and very helpful. I will keep you guys posted on the situation as it developes.
The odd thing about it all, is that it has been able to connect with every other make of vehicle I have thrown at it.....just not this Ford...
OBDPros sent a replacement unit to me. I tested it on the suspect vehicle and it passed with flying colors!! I will be sending the bad module back after the holiday so they can find out what was wrong with it.
Great service Paul!! I will highly recommend you guys to everyone I can!!
