This Alfadiag is going to get me mad...
It never worked OK, but at least I was able to connect sometimes, and then some other times it also kept connection alive for more than 10sec. But then Fiat ECU Scan came along and I stopped using Alfadiag because of this constant connection problems. FES allways connects in first attempt and it also stays connected (same story with UniDiag, but that one is useless).
But now I came across a problem that needs Alfadiag, I need to calibrate steering wheel angle on the Bosch ABS 5.7 ECU (FES doesen't offer this calibration)... And the problem is ofcourse connection. I cant connect to any of my ECUs (ABS, Airbag or Engine ECU) with Alfadiag no matter what I do. I tried a million different COM port settings and latencies in Alfadiag. I also disabled WiFi, Bluetooth, Ethernet, Soundcard, Cardbus slot, IR port, Virus scan software, disabled power savings and set the CPU to max speed... just to make sure there will be no interference, but it just doesent work.
I also downloaded the newest version, installed Alfadiag on my fathers and my girfriends laptop... It doesent work there either.
I read all the topics on the internet regarding Alfadiag connection issues and I tried every possible solution.
Does anyone have any idea what else could be tried? Because the cable is working 100%. I tried it on all three different PCs with Fiat ECU Scan and it just works without a glitch.
I also asked Derek, but still havent got reply from him.
