FreeSSM OBDII cable

Post by Allanon93 »

Does anyone have any links to any cables that work with the free SSM software? I have been looking around for one. They are either links to a lot of generic ones, or cables from other countries and take a long to ship.

So I found a cable that works. But here is the weird thing it will communicate with the TCU, but not the ECU. Any ideas why? Any input would be gladly welcome.

Do the ecu 'flash' plugs need to be connected?

^ If you mean the two GREEN plugs under the dash, DO NOT PLUG THEM TOGETHER! This resets the ECU and puts it into diagnostics mode.
