If you have the 16 pin socket only then short pins 7&8 on your adapter to access all modules.
The baud rate is 9600 and half duplex.

The data comes in hex in up to 32 byte messages. Throughput is a serious limitation.

Later cars (2007+) went to K-CAN at 100kbaud and 500kbaud for faster firmware updates and messaging.
Thanks for the info. At the time I didn't have the 20 adapter available to me. But i just got it in.
