    Hello,

    Is there a known way to read codes on a MS40 OBD I 1993 320i E36 car.

    I bought Carsoft 8.4 300 euros and carsoft 6.5 65 euros. Both give me the same behavior:

    it starts doing the diagnostic procedure. I get the red diodes tx rx blinking.
    When the progress bar reaches the end, the progress bar falls back to 30% and goes up very fast then falls back to 30% and goes up very fast forever. tx rx blinking stops at this stage. I don't have any message from Carsoft. It just loops forever.

    I was told to disconnect the ABS module, which I did. It did not change a thing.

    The strange thing is that I don't have to put ignition 2 to get the voltage at the diagnostic plug.
    Also all 3 diodes
    K line 20
    K line 17
    L line 15
    are all green, even when key is on ignition 0.

    Point is: putting ignition 2 does not change described behavior.

    Called Carsoft technical service and they haven't found a solution yet.

    Thanks for any tips!

    Can you read any fault codes on other cars?

    OBD1 is not K line compatible. K line is OBD2.

    Carsoft should be able to read OBD1 cars. I first used it years ago on my E30! Trying it on another car sounds like a plan
