when I plugg the scanner into my car (2000 BMW 328ci) and I am getting***65279; the following errors:

Connection Error with IKE , then

Connection Error with EWS

any help please
I plugged it into the round port under the hood and wallah it worked no error code and turned off the daytime driving lights., so if your car is 2000 and older use the port under the hood which you have to buy the adapter which was like 10 bucks.
