Forscan Compatible OBD2 Scanner
« on: February 12, 2018, 09:28:48 PM »
Hello!

I'm looking for an OBD2 Scanner, so far I brought a couple off eBay and sadly forscan tells me the adapters are "clones" and isnt compatible.

I'm looking for someone advice and experience in this and can point me in the direction of adapter which will work.

Thanks Dingo

Hi,

I have one that is a clone and it will eventually connect. I need to pair/unpair etc a few times and I eventually connect.

Saying that I got p****d off with it and got this off amazon and it works without issue https://www.amazon.co.uk/gp/product/B01F0GVBWY/ref=oh_aui_detailpage_o05_s00?ie=UTF8&psc=1

Ideal cheers.

I borrowed one off a mate to check the chain stretch. So useful. Can you tell me what the switch on the side does? Just on and off?

Any chance you could tell me what to look for to check the chain stretch please?
