    Hi joylove, thanks for the quick responce, thought this might be the case, can I just ask looking at my under the hood plug .... I think pin 15 is missing would this make the cable I need to buy 20pin obd cable not an ADS and if so what should I go for do you have any recommendations at all .. trying to access the ASC / traction module to see if its fried ... do you know if I went for any suitable cable with inpa ... would I have access to those modules or would I need to buy a particular cable ... Chris

    Try a VAGCOM lead with 16 to 21 pin adaptor. I wrote a couple of guides about it. Search for INPA threads started by me on here.

    Hi joylove, thanks again for the reply.... had a read of your thread ... do you know if this setup would be ok ... http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/120789362014 ... just dont particularly want to get into any fabrications or the like just want to buy straight off the shelf if I can ... I know this is serial port, but will that effect me getting all the modules seen? (by the way my e39 was registered 10/08/1998 chassis **********BT91532 523i SE..) or will I need to get ... http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/120618973575 and http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/250893065479 and if so will I need to alter the wiring at all? Cheers Chris

    That first one is extremely interesting and not something I've seen before. It appears from the description to be an ADS interface for £25. Of course somone will have to buy it and test it to see.

    This part is absolutely correct.
    Please note this interface uses a serial RS232 connection. It won't work properly on USB/serial convertors.
    So if you don't have a factory fitted serial port, get the VAGCOM 409.1 KKL lead and the 16 to 20 pin adaptor.

    EDIT> The pin shorting is done for you in the 16 to 20 pin adaptor and no modifications are needed for that socket. Post 2001ish without the round socket you must short pins 7 & 8 to access all modules.

    Hi joylove, cheers for that, going from what you say and what Ive done in the past ie shot myself in the foot buying the wrong adapter!!! I think its wise to go with what you know works and go for the vagcom and 16 to 20 pin connector me thinks!!! One last question so with this VAGcom setup with INPA / ediabas will I be able to read ASC / traction modules? Chris

    I'm 90% certain it will. I don't own such a car to test on though so won't ever be 100%.

    its not an ADS interface its just an INPA 15pin to obd2 adaptor like in my picc on page 1 we have been here before it may access some things but not all of it on a 15pin round car...

    ya can buy that same setup for £17 (also linked to on these pages)...


    if there is no pin 15 population in the socket the setup may work on the car tho...
    330i sport a big chunk of berlin...
