Elanscan frustration!

Postby Steve A » Mon 06.05.2019, 17:40

:banghead: As some of you will know at Hethel last year I had a problem with my ECU.
At the time we couldn't get ElanScan to work, I thought it was all down to the ECU.
However now I have a different ECU but still no ElanScan ?
I have tried my lead on other cars and it's fine, but have also tried different leads laptops on mine.
I have also carried out a continuity check of all the wires going to the Al dl plug.
12V across pins F and A, checked pins G (orange and yellow) and pin B (white and black) which go to the ECU A8 & A9 which was good.

Any suggestions would be appreciated :bonk:

Does it go into service mode when you short out pins A & B?
Is there ~5V on pin G wrt pin A when you turn the ignition on?

Can your lead+computer log another car without any problem?
(it's a bit unclear for me if you just tried your lead on another car, but with another computer)

Maybe you could try to send a few commands manually with a serial terminal to check if the ECU answers anything ...?

Steve,
As you noticed at Hethel, I have 'all the gear, no idea' when it comes to elanscan - it works for me, so I don't need to understand the reasons why, so can't help.....

.....except.....

.... I am happy to post either my elanscan cable or the bluetooth adapter to you prior to CC to see if you can get any of them to work with your computer/android phone.

Failing that, I will take them with me to CC, along with my laptop - but it would need someone (Geoff/Ripo :poke: ) who understands the 'workings' to see if they can get your car to talk to anything.
Dave

Just the one now, but this one's mine! - and it will be finished eventually.....

go on - click this link - you know you want to!

:D CC is probably the best bet, with such a big concentration of experts in one place :smt023
