Sorry for not replying sooner. I specifically went for an ELS27 because it stated full support for both MS- and HS-CAN.

There's a good post on here: viewtopic.php?f=4&t=6142

This has a long table of various adapters, compatible protocols etc. The key is having an STN11xx range chipset which has built in support for protocol switching; more details about MS- and HS-CAN switching (or devising your own for an older dongle) are also on the forscan forum: viewtopic.php?t=4

I have my new ELM327 Modified adapter, but I still don't see a service procedure for bleeding the abs brakes. Any ideas?

I have an obdmx+ adapter as recommended by forscan but I do not see the abs bleed option anywhere???
What am I doing wrong?
