I purchased that cable, and downloaded the free MultiEcuScan software but im having an issue getting the software to connect to my engine ECU.
When I plugged the device into my Windows 8 pc, it automatically installed the drivers and it appears in device manager as USB Serial Port (COM6).
I then noticed the option on the CD supplied to install the FTDI CDM Drivers – do these need to be installed as well as the automatic windows drivers?
In the MultiECUScan software, the interface tests appear OK, but I get the following message when trying to connect to my engine ECU:
ELM327 – ECU CONNECTION FAILED
CHECK YOUR CABLE AND SERIAL PORT SETTINGS
Did anyone else have this issue?
