I'm positive it's the cable at fault (see photo). I've tried everything this afternoon, two different laptops, anti-virus off, firewall off etc etc - no joy.
Has anyone actually got this specific cable working?
My second cable like the one shown in Murray's pic above arrived ( a week ago) and I just tried the following:
Using the old cable I thought I would try FiatECU scan 3.2 as someone previous suggested, checked latency, port 3, ran it and tested for interface being connected to the car MAR position, pin 3, all good found the cable and within tolerance. tried all the V6 options no joy.
Got my new cable, checked it in device manager com4 this time, set up latency at 1. ran FiatECU scan scanned for interfaces being connected to the car as above. no joy
Tried the new cable in multiecuscan....changing com4 etc ... all v6 settings.... nadda!
so two cables from the same supplier and I have not managed to connect. At least I only paid for one!
...... I am going to read back through the post to see if I missed anything but I dont think so. (firewalls off and was running as admin)
