Re: ELM320 PWM

I'd love to know what FORScan needs for my vehicle that the ELM320 doesn't support. Shouldn't have to have support fo all the other stuff (like CAN or VPW) if not needed for my vehicle. At least to my knowledge a 2000 model vehicle won't have either CAN bus so FORScan has no reason th check for supp...

Re: ELM320 PWM

so i would say probably not as it wont talk to anything on the car , Why would it not talk to anything? With the older ODB software/computer I had it talked to the vehicle just fine. I just don't have that computer (hence the USB-RS232 adapter) and that software didn't support things like PATS prog...

Edit: found your other post.
You need another key.

ELM320 PWM

Is there a way to use FORScan with older single protocol devices like the ELM-320? I tried with a USB-RS232 adapter and it's not detected. I don't know if it's FORScan or the adapter causing the problem. Before I find a different adapter to try or buy a different ODBII device thought I'd see if it e...

Re: How to program PATS using FORScan v2.3.*

will the car recognize the key you program as an admin key or will it be recongized as a clone of a key you already have?
