    now the cars pins are different (cant be bothered to go and list them)

    so should i buy a cable with all 16 pins present to get it to work or do i flog it back on ebay (it is working just not on my car at present)


    cheers ian

    sounds like you need a new lead..

    have you tried the companies website??

    the plugs are the same..maybe it's just the terminals that differ??

    hi there thanks for replying, yes the terminals are different from the male connection to the female one, ive tried the website but they only offer

    pc connection in with full 16pin lead not the serial to full 16pin

    however i asked on ebay a guy who sells these gs400's and he said it wont work on y20dth diesel engines as these use a simtec protocol????


    seems wierd


    cheers ian

    Diesel engined vehicles didn't start to use obd2 until, IIRC, about 2004. I will check my facts at work on Monday.
