Obdlink sx problem

Post by Ianstattoos »

I'm having alot of trouble connecting the obdlink sx to the car. All the drivers are updated and installed, I've done this quite a few times with no luck. I've tried using obdwiz and I'm also not connecting on there. Error says "connected to scan tool but not vehicle"

I've managed to connect it maybe twice out of alot of tries.

It's super frustrating, any help would be great.

Try using a different computer and do not install any drivers, just let Windows install them automatically. This check will eliminate driver issues.
If it still doesn't work, try a different car. There may be electrical issues with the OBD-II port (lose or oxidized contacts).
If nothing works, your OBDLink SX may be faulty.
