I bought a usb OBD2 cable + software from BMW Cables UK a month or so back and unless someone can help me there'sa good chance that my laptop's going through my windscreen! I'm running Windows 7 32bit
I've had nothing but trouble every step of the way but through perseverance I keep getting further and further.
Inpa/Ediabas works perfectly!!!!!!!!!
The issue I have is when setting up the DIS or SSS (both connected to car) It comes back with messages like the following:
No data could be read out of the vehicle. This maybe due to the following causes: Diagnosis bus defective. ..... No communication with the control units.
On the SSS I did get a pin15 message once but only once out of the many times i've tried so don't think that has anything to do with it.
It wont find my car automatically so I try manually and it comes back with 2000 03 or 2000 06 to choose from I'm guessing the 3 and 6 are months???? When connected to Inpa it I.d's my car's 2000 08
If I go onto Diagnosis it wont highlight any modules at all but if I click on them individually it seems to be doing something but doesn't tell me whether there's an issue or not. At some point during diagnosis it seems to know that I have a problem with coolant outlet sensor and cps (exhaust side) which I already know from running Inpa. So if it can detect that I have faults then i'm assuming that it's connected even though i'm getting messages saying that it's not.
Any ideas guys??????
