Hi, I am trying to read the ECM fault codes from my 54 plate 147 JTD. I have an ELM327 interface & ScanTool.net for windows ver 1.13 app - which I have used successfully on Ford’s. but when I plug it in to the Alfa, it won’t communicate. It just flags a fault that either connection isn’t made or ignition isn’t on. Is this because I am using an incompatible application? If so is there any freeware that I can get, all I need to do is read the codes, delete and turn the MIL light off. Any help would be much appreciate.
THANKS

Thanks I have just tried this using my interface is ELM327 1.2a. Reported incompatible due to too high baud rate, tried to reduce baud rate but still failed to communicate. In interface options there is ELM 327 1.3+?! Would you recommend buying another interface, can you recommend the best / cheapest?

Many thanks.
