    I've just done some more research which I really should of done before buying a cable to begin with. I think I may bite the bullet and go with the ADS/OBD interface you linked earlier.

    Thanks again.

    sorry to butt in with irrelavent questions but the lead/software in the link does it allow you to enable/dis-able the built in options on the car? ie total closure/opening and things like this?
    It's a ragtop thing, you wouldn't understand

    The software supplied by that ebay seller was useless, it was just a copy of an INPA & EDIABAS folder that had already been installed. I had to source the installer elsewhere.

    As for the lead, if your car is using the OBD2 standard protocol then I guess it may work but I haven't been able to test that as my BMW interface is via the 20 pin bonnet socket using the ADS protocol. As you can see from my earlier screenshots it was not completely useless and it did allow me to access some modules from the car. I was able to read engine and airbag fault codes for example.

    In short wait for someone who has some more hands on experience to answer your question

    I disagree.

    It is not necessary to use that full duplex interface that only works on laptops with a proper fully built in COM port with an E46.

    You can use a £6 USB OBD2 interface for an E46, with a £6 16 pin to 20 pin adaptor if your car has that socket under the bonnet. Find my guide entitled BMW INPA success on here.

    DIS is a lot of work, requiring virtual machines and LAN USB bridges. You can use NCS Expert to code CKM. Navcoder will also support CKM soon.

    I'm just working on this myself. The ADS interface is not some magic box of pixies. With two K line transcievers it must be possible to get it to work.

    It is all about what the EDIABAS expects the see. Some modules (DME, HVAC etc) talk and receive on TxD. This is the line you have working. Others they talk on TxD but listen on RxD these are the modules that are not responding (ZKE, KOMBI).

    On the ADS interface it uses a gate on TxD to route data to RxD and then listen on TxD. With a diode it should be possible to perform this function. Furthermore there is a need for echo on one of the interface types to keep Ediabas working.

    Can you please open your adaptor. It is not the same as mine. Can you post any pictures and also please check if the two LIN transcievers obviously connect to any or all of the following pins.


    OBD2.7 K line
    OBD2.8 K line
    OBD2.15 L line

    I am going out to the car to do some more tests.

    OBD2.15 L line isn't in use on this cable.
