yeah, today I'm going to check the obd on the car
yes he is, and he wrote me yesterday with some advices, but unfortunately none of them worked. Hopefully he will notice this thread later. Meanwhile I've found two other users having the same problems in the past, but none of them provided a solution or at least, not mentioned there - viewtopic.php?p=275016#p275016sotal said:The OBD connecter on my cable also has pins 4 and 5 connected together, I wasn't worried though as they are both grounds, one is signal ground and the other is chassis ground.
You've done what my next test was going to be, which is to plug the cable in and test continuity between the back of the obdII port in the car and the rs232.
I've no idea but the software writer is a member on here, you could try PMing him or waiting to see if he comes along to help!

I suppose it's got nothing to do with "interfearing"the comm port, most possibly somewhere in the source you're not using exactly "." or "," symbol, but "decimal symbol" as of windows, that is different in different country.Malafax_dand said:And I have indeed heard of regional Windows settings interfearing with the comm port function. Although this has usually been from eastern countries.
Like I said, the problem was the regional settings of Windows. When I switched from "Bulgarian" to "English, US" everything worked like a charm !Edable said:j1v,
