My first thought would be the port isn't getting powered as it should when the key is on but not running.Does it help to know that it seems that with the key in the 'on' position I get 'no communications' on the scanner and can not read codes...but with the engine running the scanner connects almost instantly with the CAN and will read and reset codes?
CHUZZ: I have tried to register at www.ptcruiserlinks.com several times BUT the new member registration page has a EXPIRED recaptcha on it so it can't validate, until the admin fixes that I dont think anyone can join the forum....but yeah, it looks like a good place to be...IF you could actually join. I've looked around quite a bit but cant find any contact info that doesn't require me to have an account.
Since you have an account, could you PM one of the admins and see how a new member can register and perhaps get back to us?
Yea I've run into that problem too.I've been in touch with a couple of the moderators and they're not sure if the owner of the site died or what happened. They don't have any way to let anyone register and have no idea if and when that will be available. I'm going to copy your posts and put them on the forum and see if someone can help. That's the best I can do for now. I hope to find some solutions or suggestions for you there.
