Problems with ELM327 obd2

Hello All,

I got an ELM 327 bluetooth to diagnostic my Focus 2001 1.8 tddi from Germany.
I use scanXl as scan software and some other softwares but it dosen connect:

I got this error:

Error 104: Error detecting OBD-II protocol.

Does this type of focus have OBD 2 protocol?

Please can anyone help me.

Regards,

N

What kind of bluetooth adapter did you buy? Some of the cheaper chinese units dont connect properly or even at all. That being said have you ever gotten it to connect successfully at all? And if so what protocols has it worked with?

Do you know anyone with even a cheap code reader who could check the port for you? Or your regular garage might do it cheap/free, especially if they're doing other work at the same time.
The port could be dead due to a bad battery or blown fuse, though you'd notice the symptoms when the car was running.

I bought 2 of the cheap Chinese dongles for the Torque app. Neither one worked.

I bit the bullet and bought a tuner from Tom.
