Hi All

I have been thinking about getting a cable for my GT at some point but now my father has also gone and bought an 06 Audi A4 TDI (B7), would ideally like a cable that works for both.

Is it right to say that ELM327 is the preferred cable for Alfa's but will also work with the later VAG based cars as well? Bit confused as they both (KKL/ELM327) seem to be listed as OBD2.

Thanks all :thumbs:

btw. OBDII is the wrong name it is EOBD for Alfas...
KKL works on the K and L line, ELM is for the canbus system (bodycomputer)

no need to modify ELM327 to work on 3-pin Alfa??
On an old 3-pin car, yes. But all 156/147/GT had the Standard big diag connector.

For a 147/GT you need both ELM and KKL cables to cover all ECUs.

what's the difference between the two cables, i do not have ELM327, but KKL cable meets basic needs
You need an ELM interface to get to CANbus stuff.

All covered on the MultiECUScan website in the "Supported Vehicles" section.

Hi I'm having problems communicating with the car I bought a modified cable from uk- diagnosis on eBay. Subscribed to multieuscan . despite it saying it's connected, ROM all accounts it isn't. I'm running Windows 10
