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?
