Can this be done I have 1999 e46 323i and need to check the fault for abs/asc and handbreak lights conning on together and my laptop is only a few months old so does the bmcables.com 20pin to obd2/USB thing work with this kind of problem as the guy told me it will but we all know people will say out for u to but something. We're as a chap on another eBay listing says I need a true com port on an old laptop to work inpa properly via there 20pin to PCMCIA port. Anyone clear this up or needed to do the same.
All I want to do is read the faults
Last thing I want to do is waste money on a cable thats no better than my Peake research tool which is ok for engine stuff
Edit : I have found out off the other guy that I can use a C110 scanner with a 20pin adapter which will work so maybe the best way round it .
