Problem Opel Scanner
« on: May 17, 2013, 11:44:39 »
Hi. I`ve just bought Opel-Scanner for my Zafira A, 2005, 2.0L TDI, Y20DTH

Cable ID is A719,(USB cable)  and software is ver 1.0.1.71

Bought from www.obd2.no, Vidar Huke Larsen, Norway

I don`t get the software to work. Can`t connect to my car.

Help file from this forum is not supported via Windows. I`m running Win7, 32bit ver.

Installed drivers, choosed Auto Scanner Opel, Had to choose 2004-Zafira-engine managment-Y20DTH ,  but never got contact with the car.


Error message: Unable to open USB device

In the software you can select USB or COM. Make sure, it is USB.
Also, when you plug in the interface, does your windows accept the interface properly?

Yes I have choosen USB in setup.

Windows tries to install own drivers, but I changed them to Opel Autoscanner. Used the ftdibus.inf, also tried ftdiport.inf file.

So, you need to make sure, your drivers are installed properly first.

Zafira A has no CAN bus.
Please connect the interface to the car, try to get connected and send me log?
Logging can be turned on in Options menu.

Hi. Thanx for info.


I`ve tried manually select com port`s in setup. I came to com 18, and then I got contact with the car. USB didn`t work at all.

So now it okay.
Thank you for help.......
