Hello, I have a 2009 Chevy Malibu

So this is really frustrating. I purchased an ODBII ELM327 adapter off of ebay only to find it does not support the protocol for newer GM cars. How can an adapter be labeled ODBII if it does not support ALL ODBII protocols?

The state of adapters is frustrating. Which adapters support ALL odbII protocols? I hate this trial and error nonsense as some of the adapters out there are scams.

Which adapter do I need for a Chevy Malibu 2009? Also the adapter needs to be able to reset the air bag module. I have already purchased ScanXL with the GM add-on.

The GM airbag modules use SW-CAN, which is not a standardized OBD-II protocol. An ELM interface will not support this protocol. The only interface I'm aware of that does support this protocol is the CarDAQ-Plus from DrewTech, but at $1200 its a little out of the price range of a casual user.

So if I buy an adapter that supports SW-CAN will ScanXL be able to reset the airbag? If ScanXL cant do it I want my money back.
