Alfa Romeo 147 and ELM327
Just a little help to others having trouble getting connected.
The car :
2001 Alfa Romeo 147 1.6TS (120HP)(Norwegian car)
Cheapest ELM327 I could find for computer(20GBP + p/p)
SW: WOBD(1.51) / ScanTool (1.13)
Connected to a W7 64bit, and drivers for usb2car interface drivers installed by them self.
Settings MUST be adjusted to 38400(baud rate) in device manager/SW, and of course the port must be the same in device manager/SW. 9600(baud rate) which was automatically set, didnt connect or work at all.
I had to wait a little, after starting the SW for the first time.Because W7 adjusts to "basic" monitor settings, to support the SW.
Then finally I was able to read out a few errors(P1177/P1178), and reset the yellow motor lamp in the dashboard.
Hope this helps others like me, and that you dont have to throw the equipment, or spend several hours. That could have been spent driving instead....
