    This is prime example of why to buy genuine fella, so 3 days later wasted & a lead not much good as is, you have to admit its a good reason to get authentic

    Problem is ebay leads are different versions so drivers will also be different I have found when I've checked ini files etc ages ago when I made the big mistake of buying cheap one, so you could ruin the lead by simply installing wrong drivers.

    Get yourself an original & never have this problem again.

    The "driver" for the ebay cables is just a standard windows USB-Serial driver

    The ebay leads use an older lead design with a serial based interface, then use a USB to serial converter to allow it to connect to the USB port on your laptop

    I also agree with you about the price. I can afford to take a chance on 10, i cant afford 300 to read some fault codes off though.

    i use the old 301? software with mine and it works perfectly fine. You may need to adjust the settings on the USB-Serial driver to get it onto one of the first 4 COM ports, mine came up as com7 initially but you can move it in the control panel.

    It looks like you have a lots of faults, possibly historic - I would reset the fault codes and re-run, in a week or so, to double check that these aren't redundant faults left from a previous owner!

    I have to agree with Diesel-A4 on this one - I have a cheap ass ebay cable and it worked fine, it read and cleared my ABS fault codes after fitting my ABS ECU.
