I recently got my ELM327 off Amazon. I installed all the drivers that it told me to download. I get an error saying that it cant connect to the ELM. I dont really know where to go from here. Any help is appreciated.

I am using my laptop and its a USB adapter.

Hello.
I can not join ELM myself
I have a 2008 Mondeo 2.0 TDCI. Forscan does not see an ELM cyst. Win7 system can see USB (com7). I have set Forscan connection com7 ... no connection. ELM-USB cable works with other software (Focom). I asked for another wire, you do not see.
Someone gives advice
Thanks.

I have the same setup, double-check you download the correct driver to your computer for the ELM you are using.

I received the no ELM message on my laptop when I was trying to connect to my truck...once I downloaded the correct driver to my laptop, FORSCAN worked like a charm.

If it's genuine ftdi then look online at ftdi
If not genuine try the prolific driver. Worked for my non genuine elm
