'99 GTV 3.0

Multicuescan

I have a 98 3.0 GTV & a 2003 2.4 10v 156.

I plan on selling the GTV but it's failed on emissions issues & I need to check with diagnostics.

My far-more computer techy daughter has installed the software.

I have had an ELM327 (probably a Chinese copy) bought but never used for a Mondeo, so I don't know if it works or not.

Plugged into both cars it's giving different results.

The GTV says 3-pin adaptor required. The computer/cable powers the engine fan continuously. There are different engine management systems listed.....how does one tell which one?

In the 156 the message says there is no Com Port.


I have no idea how to proceed from here. Should I maybe buy a different interface cable.....are there any that are straightforward to use....I need one that has the drivers downloadable as the disc drive doesn't work.

Another option might be any helpful member in the Fife area.....anyone know of anyone that I could visit & check the laptop/software/hardware is working?

Depending on what ECU you want to talk to (Engine, Airbag, ABS) , you need a different cable adapter.

Or get a kit that will more likely work 1st time:

I am sorry but are you sure that these will work, proven tested that they work from second link? I already got 2 of those cheap elm and neither worked on my alfa 147, one of them is exactly like the one from second link.

I gave one of those cheap elms to a friend, he physically swapped the pins in the elm to make it talk to the engine ECU (I did not buy the kit, just the elm)

EDIT: if you want to find the one that works, with reference, then use the search function of the forum and read the threads - there are enough of them
