Even with a PL2303 chipset it should be no problem to diagnose the MS CANbus network. The only problem of the PL2303 chipset may be the maximum Baudrate (some chipsets do and some chipsets do not support the higher Baudrates that are necessary for some functons of the ELMconfig program).


Did you rewire the ELM327 interface correctly? There should be pin numbers on the OBD connector of the ELM327 interface. It is a pretty common fault that people mirror the connector pins and rewire the wrong pins.

If the ELM327 interface is rewired correctly it should technically be able to diagnose the MS CANbus network without any problems. After rewiring the ELM327 interface must be set up for the MS CANbus network. This can be done manually or with ELMconfig.

After the ELMconfig software is openened you have to select "Adapter setup" and next "Setup Adapter for MS-CAN bus". You only have to do this once. After the ELM327 interface is setup for the MS CANbus network it should work without any problem.

thank you Wilco for the quick replay.

you are right i wasnot setup adapter for ms-can bus. i had select auto select and i thought that i have to do nothing more.

the speed test was not working except if i select 9600 baudrate.

the max speed that my chip support is 256.000 and that baudrate  i select for the constant speed.

Now the speed test is working only if i select the 256.000 baudrate  and i can read and write to HS-CAN and also to MS-CAN 

can i read and write the pcm module with that speed or i have to buy another elm327 which support 500.000

thank again wilco

hello 

i want to fit cruise control to my focus

I order an elm327 cable from ebay because the seller said to me that it has an ftdi chip.

it came yesterday but it has a pl2303 chip.

I modified it today and i try it with elmconfing and with fds programs. The elm_ff2_en has characters that i can not read so i did not try it .

the elmconfing and the fds can read and write HS-CAN modules

they can not read the MS-CAN modules.

with the elmconfing program when i place the switch of the modified elm327 to hs-can and trying to read from GEM it show a CAN ERROR message. i think this is right.

but when i place the switch to ms-can and trying to read from gem it show a NO DATA message

why is this happens?

i check the wires to the switch and they seems ok

is there a posibility the not ftdi chip makes the problem and i can not read gem module?

have anyone with a pl2303 chip read and write the pcm module or i have to buy another elm cable

hello 

I want to fit cruise control to my focus 1.6 ti-vct 115ps.

This topic have almost 2.100 posts (and i make it bigger). I have reading this topic for 3 hours yesterday and other 2 today (my english is bad) and i am lost

Can someone tell me which posts i have to read to understand what to do with the elmconfing software?

and fist of all i want to buy from ebay the elm327 cable how can i understand which elm327 cable supports this software.

I ask ebay sellers about the chip and i had 2 responses. the first one is using 25K80 chip and the second 340 chip.

Is anyone from this chips ok?

 

thank you
