Hi guys, just purchased a copy. Looking forward to working with it. Installed in my car, get an error can not read the protocol. Do I need to set up com and what protocol somewhere? I am using the Skyline skin. Have not changed anything yet as I wanted to see if it would connect first. Scanner is an ODBPros USB unit.

What kind of vehicle do you own? Are you sure it's OBD-II compliant?

Would you be able to send me a techlog (on level 9) of this problem so I can see what's happening?

Sorry for the delay, just returned from a business trip. It is a 2000 Mazda Protege. I live in Canada. I will send you the log when I get home this evening.

This wouldn't be an OBDPro interface by any chance would it? (It would be much easier to identify as OBDPro if the interface reported itself as such).

It looks like this interface doesn't support one of the ELM327 commands that we are using in our software. I'll have to think about a good way to solve this problem.

Indeed it is an ODBPro scanner, sorry for the lack of information. Hope you can solve it.

Also just a heads up. I purchased another piece of software and the company found an issue with Fuel Status, it was resolved but want to make you aware of it.

very first pid Fuel Status, pid 0x03. For some reason according to the log your vehicle only returns one data byte instead of two as per the OBDII specification. Normally if the second data byte is not used it just returns 0, but in your case there is nothing. My routine expects the extra byte and that is enough to cause the crash.

It should reply with something like
41 03 02 00

What I suspect you will get is
41 03 02

... that is exactly what I got, the last 2 digits are missing with no place holders such as 00. They changed the software and it runs GREAT now.

Hi Brian,

Thank you for working the ODBPros. I have to return the scanner so they can update it to support Dashcommand.
