I have purchased my second Carsoft 7.4 interface unit(Copy unit), and i still have no joy in getting it to connect with the car, a 2002 A160 L (Japanese Import).
1st time I had a straight forward interface, and when you try to connect, it just says 'diagnostic cable faulty', so I returned it and bought another type.
2nd time, I now have one of the so called 'blue box unit's' a multiplexer unit, fully wired for all K-lines, the led's light up, and it partially connects for the first 10 -20 seconds, then fails, 'diagnostic cable faulty' so close but....
A Dell Latitude CPi with a factory RS232
A Tiny PC with factory RS232
A Compaqu Presario V4000 with a PCM bard bus to RS232
2 different sources of carsoft 7.4
But im unsure of the RS 232 port setting? any ideas.
Is there any good download versions of carsoft?
Has anyone tried using a breakout box on this car/interface?
This is the unit I have;
