    Hi Guys,

    Ive been doing quite a lot of research into connecting my laptop to my car, im looking at getting a copy of sss, however my car is a 99", i can purchase a USB to ODB cable for the software for £20 however i am unsure as to weather the 16pin port on my car will work and my research has led me to belive that this will not work. You can though purchase adaptors that convert the 16 pin to 20pin under the bonnet connection. My question is if i use one of these adaptors will that work correctly with diagonosic software in perticular SSS.


    Cheers
    Deklan
