Searching for WIFI.... No ELM Found

Post by Deacon » Thu Dec 28, 2017 7:30 pm

On my laptop. Keep getting " Searching for WIFI. No ELM Found. Please check connection and retry." Have tried bluetooth and hard wired ELM. Same response. How do I get the program to find my ELM?

I had some issues with this. I found that I needed to make the connection default. I don't know if you are using Bluetooth or USB or WiFi but, whichever you use, it might be a good idea to do what I did.

^^ forcing the selection helped me to establish a connection when I was running my bluetooth dongle.

I had the No ELM...message with my USB connection...until I installed the updated/correct driver for my OHP ELM327, then worked like a charm afterwards.
