Hello,

After the advice received on here, I purchased the full license for FiatECUScan to carry out a Proxi Alignment on my Alfa 147 and it worked great! Hurray!

Everything apart from the Dashboard node, that is... it says failed timeout when I try and Proxi Align it. I also cannot connect to it to read faults or reset my service interval. When I try and do this it says Elm327 -> ECU Connection Failure. I know for a fact that my serial settings are correct so is there no problems there...

The strange thing is, before I bought the full version (still running on 3.4) I could connect to my dashboard fine, but being the limited version I couldn't reset the service interval then either.

This has turned from annoyance to worry now as I am thinking that there could be something seriously wrong in my CAN line, please if anyone has an idea do share!

Thanks in advance, Mike.

Some cables are not compatible with certain modules or need pins shorted to access a particular function...

FES website will say if elm is compatible with that module on your car and if you need to short pins

Thanks for your quick replies.

I started a thread over on the FiatECUScan Forums last week when I first had the problem and I sent a report then too. Heard nothing back yet but I'll keep checking...

I have two different ELM cables which should be able to access the dash, what's weird is that it did work once - but then never again?!

I have a feeling the dash was replaced in 2009 but I am not sure, could that cause it?

Just bump your thread, Yani is quite busy but he got round to my problem after about 2 weeks and it was fixed in the new build.

I had a similar problem, my dashboard node always made my proxi alignment fail and it was all down to baud rates, try a few different settings and see if that works

Lovely cheers.
I'll get on the case this evening with the baud rates - and thanks for the bump!
