      Posting in General Chat thread.   11/11/2017

      it has been noted that too many Members are posting messages in the General Chat area instead of the correct Forums. Any messages posted in the General Chat area that are not General Chat will be deleted without warning and offenders may recieve warning points if repeated instances are seen from that Member. There are plenty of different Club areas that encompass 99% of Ford related posts, please select and use the correct one. If anyone is not sure of which area to post something then feel free to P/M myself or other Senior Staff for guidance. The Moderating Staff are having to spend far too much time chasing this problem instead of maintaining the other areas of the forum.

  1. Can you, please tell me more about "hanging the automatic gearbox settings on a manual shifted car is a known trick to make the car feel a little more powerfull."
  2. I fallowed the tutorial from the first page. Than I saw that there are double switcher on the market.
  3. I received the second diagnosis and it is working :D I manage to add the switchers and I now I have Eco Mode, DDS, Radio and Auto-locking. I will put some photos to see that the interior is completely different to the the one from the tutorial: the leds are smd and the pins are in another order. I activated also the double locking, but is not working!
  4. On this site you can find checkChipVersion_v1006 software and see what chip you have. If is PL-2303HX or HXA probably is fake like I had! I couldn't manage to use it!
  5. I will give Negative to the seller because I can not use my Elm :( Can you please tell my what version of Chip do you have? You can use checkChipVersion_v1006 software from http://www.prolific.com.tw/US/ShowProduct.aspx?p_id=225&pcid=41 Thanks!
  6. I didn't manage to use ElmConfig, finally. When I am trying to make the speed test on windows 7 i get the error from the picture (correct response from ELM timed. Received response to request "ATZ" : u). When I am trying to make the speed test on windows XP, Elmconfic find ok all the speeds until 500.000 and then i had the error from this picture and than the message from this one . Do you have any other suggestions for me? PS: I was trying also the EasyOBD software and it is working, all the led from Elm are blinking; I can connect to Obd and see that I have no DTC error and I can see live parameters, so is working somehow. LE: Using checkChipVersion_v1006 software I found that I have a PL-2303HX / HXA chip, and on Prolific.com I found thah this chip are EOL and discontinued chips and there is a big possibility to be a counterfeit/fake PL-2303HX Rev A (or PL-2303HXA) USB-to-Serial Controller ICs using Prolific's trademark logo, brandname, and drivers, are being sold in the China market.
  7. Finally I manage to install the cable!!!!!! I re-installed the operating system(now i have win 7 86x) and than i run the driver as administrator!!!!! Thanks to all oh you!!
  8. It is still not working! From the begging I manage to install the driver, but when I am plugging the cable I have the error from the first picture. In the second picture you can see a print screen from Device Manager. I install the driver and the cable on a friend laptop that is running XP, so the cable is working. In must be a problem with my Win 7 x64 :(
  9. Thanks for the link, but it's still not working :( I tried also with this driver http://www.prolific.com.tw/US/ShowProduct.aspx?p_id=225&pcid=41 and I have the same error. Yesterday I received the Auto Diagnostic and I Tried all day to make it working, but I didn't manage. I manage to install the driver but when I am plugging the cable I get a error that tells me that the device is not working properly. In the device manager I have this error: This device cannot start. (Code 10) I am using a Windows 7 Ultimate on 64bit and I was trying to install the Auto Diagnostic on my desktop with Windows 7 Home Edition. Do you have any other suggestions? I will try soon on a friend's laptop with windows xp installed. LE: I bought it from here http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/ELM327-V1-5-OBD2-OBDII-CAN-BUS-USB-Auto-Diagnostic-Interface-Scanner-/221195395707?ssPageName=ADME:X:RTQ:GB:1123 so try to avoid this seller!
  10. Hello! I received my Elm327 today(bought from China on ebay) and I have the same error. I was reading on Prolific website and I found this: !!!Counterfeit Warning!!! Please be warned that counterfeit/fake PL-2303HX Rev A (or PL-2303HXA) USB-to-Serial Controller ICs using Prolific's trademark logo, brandname, and drivers, are being sold in the China market. Counterfeit IC products show exactly the same outside chip markings but generally are of poor quality and causes Windows driver compatibility issues (Yellow Mark Error Code 10 in Device Manager under WinXP, Vista, and 7). This warning is issued to all customers and consumers to avoid confusion and false purchase. Please purchase only from stores or vendors providing technical and RMA support. What can I do?
