Hi,

have you tried "Run as administrator...."? While, as I remember (that was on windows 7) I had a user that was in administrators group but was "kind of limited" in a sense that accessing devices was not working unless I started an application with right click->Run As Administrator. Perhaps is the same problem with you on windows 8.1.

Have you got a code reader at all? Just to check that the OBD port in the car is still working now.

I cant remember installation tbh, I just followed a youtube video and it worked first time lol.

What do you have the Baud rate set to?

Yeah it should work fine 500000, but if you've tried changing it then won't be that.

Running out of ideas I'm afraid! I'm sure someone will come along tomorrow and tell us it's something really simple lol.

Nice one, at least you've sorted it!

Haven't had an issue with my mirrors using ELM, maybe popped the fuse?

Hello all.

I've just started playing with this now.

Does anyone get 4 or 5 chimes when they turn the ignition or engine on? I'm getting it and it's quite annoying and unnecessary.

What setting do I need to adjust?

When does the extra information appear on the dash display? I get nothing extra over the usual when sat still with the engine idling.

Cheers

Kye

Try reinstate the backups you made before you made any changes, reinstate the instrument cluster and gem specifically and see if that stops it...

All sorted! No more annoying bing bongs. I can open the drivers door with the ignition on and remain in silence!

I have selected the extra bits to appear on the display between the clocks, but it doesn't seem to work. Any idea anyone? Car spec under my avatar.

Which extra bits did you want in the display?

I got radio stuff on mine but due to the small screen it was just annoying so removed it again lol.

Think you may need to update the cluster firmware to the latest level before some of the extras show up, I'm sure there's more mention of it earlier on in this topic

hi,

I am trying to activate the cruise control on my focus 2.0 tdci 136 using elm config 0.2.15 but when I get to the pcm configuration and read my car info it comes bac as a petrol car and wont let me change it, I know I only have to check the integrated speed control box and then write it back to my car but I am not wanting to do this in case it causes any damage or makes my car not start with it thiking its petrol.

any ideas please ?

Yes I selected the correct engine in the drop down box but still comes back saying it's a petrol and won't let me change to diesel.

Ah ok, and it says 'unleaded petrol' in the drop down on the left? Mines the same, didn't make a difference when I activated cruise yesterday. :)
