I would really appreciate if someone would be kind enough to help me out. I have purchased the obd/usb cable suggested on this forum and followed the advise/download/installation to a "T", numerous times. I still do not have the program working. I posted again on the same thread, stating the installation problem, with no replies. I am not new to the automotive field and diagnostics. I am a former senior master technician;however, I am not a program writer or software engineer. I say this because I've read a few times on this forum people stating to others whom have asked for help, "if you you cant install a simple program , you have no business messing with the car". I just wanted to make it clear that Im not diving in blind, but as stated.... Im not having ANY luck getting the software to work. I have tried many times on and off for a month with no luck! I would be more than happy to Buy the program if possible, but I cannot find a source. Any help is appreciated, its just very frustrating that I posted a question , received replies telling me what to order and download, then when I ordered that cable and followed those instructions with no success, now no one has any advise??????


Thanks!

It would help if we knew what specifically isn't working.

The problem I am having now is that when I open the Inpa program It does not connect with the vehicle. Both the battery and ignition "circles" remain blank, and there are no vehicle options (F3-F9.) It does say "running" in green on the bottom left, whether connected or not. There are also (2) small circles on the top left of the screen that are flashing.

Thanks

Do you have this serial/usb interface set to use com1 and the lowest latency possible? Have you created / copied the obd.ini and ediabas.ini files into the proper place?
