Thanks e46er,

Yeah I am past those errors now for those reasons, I am focused on getting the DME codes out.

I definitely am making sure it is fully inserted. And have done about 10 scans now with unplugs etc between them. I usually wait about 30 seconds after turning on the car to connect the adapter,then about 30 more to the computer, everything else scans fine. Just tried it with 3 minutes between each... nothing.


So I soldered pins 7,8... then also tried 1,2 as well. It didn't do anything.

I also tried to update the software to to no avail.

On websites for the product & software I read this:

"Unlocked" functions to show possibilities of full version:
DTCs description in DME MS43.0, EWS3, SRS MRS4
Clearing DTCs in same units

I purchased it from newegg.

I'll probably help FastChaz or another e46 driver scan their vehicle to see if it is my scanner or my vehicle.

Any other thoughts? I also noticed that on the first startup screen after the initial scan, I don't get any chasis or options info, I only get milage in km and VIN. Not sure if that's related.
