    1. im trying to connect to a 1 series e87 as iv had issues with lack of power im off on holiday with the car Monday and wanted to find out what was wrong before i go i have read every post i can find over the last week but cant find the solution

    2. i have tried pin 7-8 linked unlinked

    3. i have pins 1, 4, 5, 6, 9, 14 and 16 in the obd socket

    4. I have tried xp SP3 32 bit. Firewall disabled, no anti-virus. No other software is installed. (I've had the same problem using Win 7 and Vista).

    5. C:\Ediabas\bin is in the path.

    6. Installed the USB cable and set the COM port to 1. Latency is set to 1ms. There is no option to use FIFO buffer.

    7. Ediabas.ini has STD:OBD as interface. It is also set so loadwinxp = 1

    8. OBD.INI is in C:\ediabas\bin and \system32. COM port is set to 1 but i have tried every other com port too.

    9. When loading INPA, I get black battery and ignition when plugged in and starting car.

    10. I can not read the ECU. or read errors. just get ifh-009

    11. When trying to read any other module, I get the IFH 0009 No Response From Control Unit.

    12. i have tried 3 different leads all supposedly kline and dcan compatable

    13. i have tried 3 different laptops

    14. i have tried to run dcantools but i get interface not found when trying to set dcan

    15. i have installed the software from 3 different CD that came with the leads and 3 downloaded sources reported working

    16. i am going insane i have spent 2 weekends and every night in the week trying to sort this out ready for my holiday please please help. Beer vouchers available through paypal i am desperate !!!

    Sorry I can't help with your problem but I do feel your pain. I spent months trying to get a cable to work with dozens of different versions of software.

    I too didn't see any options for FIFO buffers but I did change them in the regitry, still didn't help me though.
    I could get INPA working enough to see/clear faults but nothing else (DIS etc).

    I took a punt at a completely different cable/software package from here

    BM Technic | BMW Diagnostic Cable | BMW Diagnostic Software « Diagnostic & Coding Cable with software for BMW. Automatic One Click Software Installation and BMW Cable with Ignition Detection.

    Everything worked, no messing with software at all other than click the INSTALL button.

    Too late for you I know and I'm not sure if it is suitable for an E87 but the seller is on an M3 Board, he helps out quite often maybe worth a pm to him,

    It's likely to be a canbus car, and you'd need the K+DCAN lead, as the usual lead is K line only.

    Have you got the "utilities" software that will swap from K line to CAN?

    OK, get the command line version onto your desktop, and plug the lead into the car and USB port, and quickly open the utilities program.
    It'll only work when the red light is on in the lead, and has a habit of saying the com port is in use or doesn't exist but if done quickly it'll work better.
