....for this very late response to your kind advice
I will answer in between your questions:
1. Are you using an OBDLink LX or the Can Tie?- They are not connected at the same time using a Y splitter are they?
=> No, I only use OBDLink LX in combination with AlfaOBD on my MotoG (1st Gen.) The CarTieBar on which MES is running I do only use ocassionally (like last weekend to reset the service intervals after an oil-change).
2. Are you connected directly to the OBD port OR are you using an extension.
=> Permanently and directly fitted to the OBD socket from the car. No splitter or extension cable.
3. Are there any other bluetooth connections running in the car i.e your radio/ parrot
=> Interesting you mention, because I suspect that Blue & Me is sometimes the one which causes the problem. However, other times staying connected with both (B&M as well as OBDLink) isn't any issue.
Once connecting doesn't work for one time, then also resetting my phone first doesn't do the trick. The only thing that works then is to take the OBDLink out and in again. Then I don't need to pair again, which is remarkable I think.
If I don't take it out and in, just trying to pair again after first deleting the data from my phone, by resetting using the small button it won't help. I think the little button is just for (re-)pairing both Bluetooth devices.
4. Are you using the latest app versions?
=> Whoeps, from AlfaOBD I only have the demo version. Perhaps I better buy a paid license (wonder though if it will cost a yearly update like MES, need to check. Such will have not much use for the 939 platform, since there won't be coming much updates anymore. In fact FIAT already isssued the latest factory updates quite some time ago.).
What I noticed btw from a very short trip lately after which my brother asked me to read out his BMW (yeah, these machines do also throw an error ocassionally
), is that when I detached the OBDLink from my car, it was quite warm. Not hot, but it made made me wonder yet why since there seems not to be another heat source surrounding in that particular spot behind the dashfacia.
I will keep you posted once I have found out more.
Many thanks again!
