It won't on cars manufactured before 2005, pins 7&8 need to be bridged for these. You can buy an adapter or install a switch for this.

Seems as though all the guys with the information are banned. Anybody know how to find the correct OBD II cord and the software? Any links for the correct OBD II cord from xcardiag?

I have a cable that I don't need since I sold the car. I installed a jumper to that it can be used on old and new cars. Send me a PM if interested.

The K+DCAN cable from one stop electronics.com is known to work well. They ship via HK post, so it can take a while to arrive.

The software is floating around all over the place, some crooks might even try to charge you for it.

Wow, it's surprisingly expensive compared to what I found on Amazon.

I never seen any problems reported with the one stop cable. Others appear to be hit and miss. Your mileage may vary.

I posted a DIY with links to the software:
