I'm having a issue with the OBD II Code reader/scanner I just purchased communicating with my car. I follow the directions fine and everytime it tries to find the protocol I get this error "Failed to establish communication - Verify the connection at the DLC. Verify the ignition is ON. And press any key."
I checked the power and grounds and it came up positive, ground at pins #4&5 and power at pin #16. I was told our cars use protocol ISO 9141 and my tool supports that.
The scanner is the Memoscan U581 "CAN OBD II". I tried to update the software but the website www.memoscan.cn
is down and I'm unable to update.
The car: 1998 Eclipse GS-T (with 6-bolt swap, could that cause the issue ? )
The scanner works fine on a friends KIA, but just cannot connect with my car. Does anybody have any suggestions ?
