Have you got the female OBD2 connector? If so just connect OBD2.7 to TxD and TxD2. EDIT: and hook up the Power and GND too.

Any help would be appreciated
You need INPA and EDIABAS as a bare minimum.

INPA is the program that talks to the car.
EDIABAS is a tiny program that shares the COM port out to several programs when needed.
