I am guessing this switch will be ok?
If not, which one of these would I need?

go to start and right click my computer, click "manage". Then browse to device manager and then find communication ports. right click and go to properties, then find the advanced properties of the COM port that you are using (or it may appear under USB). Then set the COM port baud rate in there, that might help you, and also disable any settings that relates to power saving on the comm port.

I am having issues, I have taken the ELM apart but the wiring on the back of my OBD connector is different.
Any ideas? We are abit stuck at the moment. The seller did already say this can work with canbus cars?

This is where i buy my ELM327 from.
I have just tested two of them (although i have no MK2 to attach to) i can get both of them to sit on 500000 and open up ELMConfig
i ran a test on them and both only go as far as 500000 , i did get a couple of error's while playing around , but both start now on 500000
Again i can't test fully
Can you get yours to sit on 500000 and open ELMConfig with out connecting to your car or does it just fail when you connect to your car.

Have you already tried to remove the positive battery cable for about half an hour?
If removing the battery cable does not solve the problem you can try to remove the instrument cluster from the car, connect it directly to a (12 Volt DC) power source and the ELM327 interface and perform the firmware update again . Sometimes this will solve the problem.
If performing the update outside the car also does not solve the problem there are only a few possibillities. You can buy and re-program another (either brand new or already used) instrument cluster or take the current (not working) instrument cluster to a specialized company for repair (if possible).
I own an instrument cluster which has similar problems like yours. It came from someone who tried to perform the firmware update and aborted the update before it was finished. Afterwards the screen turns black and nothing seems to work. The guy who did this had to buy and re-program another instrument cluster because he needs his car every day. Until now I have not been able to get it to work again.
I made inquiries in Europe and Asia are Visteon manufacturing, I used FTDI chips ELM327 USB, the connection speed is 500,000, but not be able to program success HEC 0509rom, where do you think there is a problem? Thank you

Try setting the speed to 38400 for the HEC upgrade , 500,000 speed is for the PCM upgrade.
The second point is there are many Rom's and your Asia Rom may not be compatible with a European 0509R ! Be Carefull !

I have tried again without connecting to car. The only way I can carry out the speed test is if I set the speed to 38400 in the first screen (next to Com Port) any other higher speed fails.
I carry out speed test and 500000 is ok (screen shot) set adaptor constant speed to 500000. next screen is the hard reset (screen shot) click OK. 'New speed was set reset adaptor to apply settings' (screen shot) I press OK and it all shuts down. I restart the speed is set at 500000 connect to car, ignition on, go to open port and it fails (see screen shot).
I think the adaptor may be the problem but if you can though some more light on this before I use the link you sent me I would be most gratefull.
I don't know how much further i can get as i can't test it , but i can get ELMCongfig to open once i have set 500,000 , i get the errors only if i change the connection speed to 38400 on ELMConfig IF it's been set to 500,000 before. If i want to go back to 38400 , then i open on 500,000 , run speed test then write 38400 to the elm327 , once it restarts i then open at 38400 and visa versa.

Reading a little more about it , it appears to be a genuine ELM cable , although i thought they cost more !.
Have you tried to connect to the MS-CAN (Gem) side with ELMConfig ?
If it worked on the GEM side then it would simply be a case of reverse wiring 3/11 to 14/6 and not the other way around , thats if it worked on the GEM side of things , if not then i would not consider trying to modify it.

The first thing I done when I got it, was pull it apart.
I can give it a try tomorrow though. What programs do I need to download Pree? As there are so many links in the first thread!
I did ask the seller if it was a Genuine ELM327 chip and he said it wasn't?!
Haha so he is advertizing a Fake! then even after pulling the clones down in his advert lmao.
The program you need is ELMConfig in the first post Version 0.2.9 , you may need to send the commands to it , "Adapter setup" "setup to MS-CAN"
If you get it to read , don't what ever you do try and write anything to your car as this adapter is not proven.
