  • Retried today without any problems! Weird?!

  • I've just purchased the Car Diagnostics Kit plus the FTDI basic board that's recommended. When I plug the FTDI basic board into my PC I see it appear as COM port 9 (as expected). When I connect the obd2 cable to the vehicle's OBD2 connector there's a very bad result: My laptop screen turns bright blue or yellow and starts screaming at me. I unplugged the usb cable from my laptop and held the power button down to shutdown and then reboot. I then plugged the obd2 to UART board (with FTDI basic connected) into the vehicle's OBD2 connector and the led's on the board light up. I then attempt to plug the USB cable into my laptop and I have the same result: bright color and screaming. This cannot be good... any thoughts??

No public wish lists :(
