Re: ELM327-compatible adapters - how to choose

Hello, I'm new to this whole thing. I just purchased an ELM 327 off amazon from a link I found in another forscan thread and am wondering if it is compatible. When I plug it into the computer, all I get is the single red light, but yet on the installation instructions on totalcardiagnostics for downloading drivers, it says all lights should come on then go to just the red light. My computer doesn't even appear to be finding this because when I click on device manager there is nothing that comes up for "other devices" Has anyone had any luck with the USB style OHP Elm Config from amazon? Or am I wasting my time with it? Please help

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.)
