I can't get my laptop to connect with the ECM

Post by Ribstone Hill »

I am trying to get a data log to look at but I haven't been able to establish a comm between my new laptop and the ecm. I contacted OBD Diagnostics (where I purchased the cable) and they recommended the latest driver and also recommended TunerPro because they believe it works better on Windows 10. (I had DataMaster) My com port is recognizing the cable as connected and the FTDI driver but it still doesn't communicate.

The TunerPro app says "hardware not found"

Did you ever get connected to your ECM. I’m running into the same problem.

Priobe,

No I didn’t. After spending about 20 hours researching forums and many sending help requests I gave up for now. Brian at TBI Chips told me “Windows 10 can be finicky”. I’ll try again someday when I have more patience. Lol

Have you had any luck yet?
