I bought a newer cable that supports past the march 2008 build date and can do up to 2011 i believe... and that cable worked on my 08 and 07... haven't used it on anything else tho...

Hope this helps...
also what i did was look at my friend's 07 odd2 port's pinout and compared it with mine and thats how i found out it was a diferent Protocol where 03/08 was a CANBUS system
