Drivers for an ELM327 for Windows 7 & 10

Post by Stormy1958 »

Hi all, can someone point me in the right direction. I have install just about every driver set i can find but Forscan says it cant find an ELM tool. I have the connector with the switch for HS/MS switching & i am using a usb cable...any help with where i can get the correct drivers from would be appreciated.

Try disconnecting the cable, close Forscan, toggle the switch, restart Forscan and reconnect the cable. Some have mentioned that the switches aren't labeled properly as to HS/MS and it will not connect initially if the toggle is in the wrong position....once started, Forscan will tell you when to flip the toggle switch to the other position.

Just have a look here ...

Maybe this will help you

(If ELM327 USB isn't setup properly as per instructions below — then OBD software will not even detect the cable — let alone connect to the vehicle.)

if you still need the drivers then , pop open the unit , look for a 16 leg chip just where near the usb cable plug into the board,
this chip enulates serial to usb , find the number on the chip ( mine is pl-2303hx ) , then either post it here and il post the drivers or a link to them or search on elm website download , drivers section for the drivers.
i am the same as you just a forscan user still learning .
The search function is there for a reason use it.
no you can no longer pm me with your 1 or 0 posts so dont try.

I was skeptical, but finally got drivers working with an older ELM327 module on package 5! Patience is paramount.

Re,
Good evening! I bought a forscan ELM 327 scanner and my windows 7 notebook did everything straight with forscan but I can not in any way configure driver on the computer with the CD that came with it, windows does not accept and error code 28 came up.
Can you help me?
