    hi everyone. i got obd2 cable from ebay and i managed to install inpa and dis. the thing is inpa works fine but i cant get dis to work. i have 2 green lines at the top saying its pared and signal is good but when i connect to the car it say it cant communicate with a diaghead. the thing is that i spent so many hours trying to get it to work that i lost all the hope now. i was wondering if anyone in here is from Somerset uk. that can give me a hand with installation.

    What instructions are you following? There are a few installs out there now that are basically a pre-installed vm image.

    Also, are you sure you need DIS. I use Inpa 99% of the time because it's quicker. I think you'll need DIS if you are trying to read DPF errors in depth.
