I have a 1997 Galant GDI VRG which has some intermitted problems and would like to use my diagnostic tool to diagnose, but my tool says vehicle is not responding. I cannot afford to buy the proprietory tool so i use a generic tool (OTC Genisys and EZ Scan also a Software type ELM327) no one in my small island has that tool. so can anyone tell me if it is possible to read my car codes and how?

Hello from Russia!
I have some problem. I bought ELM327 bluetooth and can't connect it to my MMC Galant 1998 TDI ECU. I tried various program, varied vechicles. My software found ELM, but can't connect to ECU. It returns "Error detection OBD protocol". I bought it on Ebay, from china seller. It's Low price, attractive offer, fast shipping but it DON'T WORK!!!!!!! I have lost all hope to connect......
I have made some screen shoots. If you want I can send it for you.....

There are many elm327 products on the after market, some are designed to work on CAN bus protocol vehicles, some support K-Line protocol, some of them support all OBD2 vehicles. If you get a K-line elm327, it can not communicate with CAN BUS vehicles. We had better identify our vehicle protocol, and than to get a correct elm327 adapter even though it is cheap. Dealer should hightlight their elm327 features, protocol, working system, communication mode(WIFI/Bluetooth) etc. This supplier done a good job
