Question OBD2 Diagnostics

Could anybody please advise on which OBD2 Interface to use as I have had a look on emule and Fiat dont seem to be mentioned much also a decent software package to use.

Also any examiner software kicking about as I intend to have a bash at making examiner type interface. I used to be a Fork Truck Service Engineer Used to programme/ Interigate Fork lift trucks from several manufacturers one which had several types of Italian ZAPPI Control Unit installed this had CAN Bus interestingly had interface box between Laptop & Control Unit I have peeked inside this in the past it had a couple of small PCBs inside with microchips.
Might be possible to manufacture interface for examiner software.
microchips could be off the shelf anybody ever had their hands on examiner interface

I have also seen several members have installed examiner software but not got it to communicate with Body computor have they tried going into control panel on PC going onto Performance & maintenance/system/hardware/Device Manager/ Ports (Com& Lpt) & checking port settings baud rate etc

Re: OBD2 Diagnostics

You'll want an interface something like this
http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/ws/eBayISAPI.d...MEWA%3AIT&rd=1

Check what connection types you have on your laptop first though

For software, scroll further down the the page for links to various useful packages

I tried to get the Examiner software to communicate but it wasn't having any
