    I can only read the DME with INPA. The other modules respond with IFH-0009: NO RESPONSE FROM CONTROLUNIT.



    Is there a modification to the cable? I am using the 16 pin connector.



    Thanks!

    I'm assuming the lead has a USB rather than serial connector?

    If so I came across this online...

    IFH-0009: ECU isn’t connected or doesn’t respond

    Reason 1: In the Ediabas.ini file, the interface is set to STD:ADS. However, you have
    connected an OBD connector.
    Solution 1: Modify the interface setting.
    Reason 2: The ignition is switched off.
    Solution 2: Switch the ignition on.
    Reason 3: The device manager has been used to disable the FIFO buffer for COM1.
    Solution 3: In the device manager (Windows XP: Enter “Start” “Control Panel”
    “System” “Hardware” “Device Manager” Ports (COM & LPT)), and select
    COM1 from the ports and under the “Port Settings” tab, select “Advanced”. There
    must be a check-mark by “Use FIFO buffers” and the highest possible setting
    must be selected for the receive buffer.

    If the car has a round socket under the bonnet you must use it to access all modules.

    If not, short pins 7 and 8 on the adaptor.
