Download the Arduino Software (IDE)

Get the latest version from the download page. You can choose between the Installer (.exe) and the Zip packages. We suggest you use the first one that installs directly everything you need to use the Arduino Software (IDE), including the drivers. With the Zip package you need to install the drivers manually. The Zip file is also useful if you want to create a portable installation.

When the download finishes, proceed with the installation and please allow the driver installation process when you get a warning from the operating system.


Choose the components to install


Choose the installation directory (we suggest to keep the default one)


The process will extract and install all the required files to execute properly the Arduino Software (IDE)

Proceed with board specific instructions

When the Arduino Software (IDE) is properly installed you can go back to the Getting Started Home and choose your board from the list on the right of the page.

This article will guide you how to install ELM327 USB cable/scanner on your Windows computer. It will then work with any OBD2 software and your car.

(If ELM327 USB isn't setup properly as per instructions below — then OBD software will not even detect the cable — let alone connect to the vehicle.)

Windows XP, Vista, 7:

Bought ELM327 from Total Car Diagnostics?

  • Install DRIVER PACK 3.

Didn't buy ELM327 from Total Car Diagnostics?

Install all 4 driver packs below. Reason why so many to install is various ELM327's use different hardware chips. So one pack below should work.

If you bought ELM327 cable from elsewhere (clones, eBay, other manufacturers) then install all Driver Packs below, because they cover widest range of chip makers...

  • DRIVER PACK 1
    Steps to install Driver Pack 1:
    • If you have 64-bit Windows, double-click on: CP210xVCPInstaller_x64
    • If you have 32-bit Windows, double-click on: CP210xVCPInstaller_x86

That's it!

Go to Step 2 below to test if everything is working ok...

Windows 8, 10:

Ok, we're almost ready to start scanning your vehicle.

First, let's ensure that everything is working fine!

Here's how...

Windows Vista/7/8/10: Control Panel » System » Device Manager

Windows XP: Control Panel » System » 'Hardware' tab » Device Manager

Step 2: Expand 'Other Devices' and 'Ports (COM & LPT)'

Notice any device with any one of the following names:

  1. FT232R USB UART
  2. Prolific USB-to-Serial...
  3. USB Serial Port
  4. USB2.0-Serial
  5. Silicon Labs CP210x USB to UART Bridge

NONE of above devices should have a yellow mark () next to them.

If none of the above has a yellow mark, then congratulations! You're ready to begin scanning your car(s). Click here on how to connect to your car in the next 5 minutes...

If any one of above devices has a yellow mark, then:

  1. Right-click on that device » Uninstall
  2. Unplug cable
  3. Restart PC
  4. Download and unextract DRIVER PACK 6
  5. Double-click on 'InstallUSB' to install
  6. Connect cable to laptop. Yellow mark should now be gone. Success!
    If yellow mark is STILL not gone after doing 1-6 above, then do this:
    a) While cable is plugged in, right-click on device with the yellow mark.
    b) Click on: Update Driver Software
    c) Choose: Browser my computer for driver software
    d) Browse to and select folder where you unextracted Driver Pack 6. Make sure 'Include subfolders' is ticked ON.
    e) Click on: Next
    f) If you get RED warning, choose: Install this driver software anyway
    g) After it installs successfully, another yellow mark may appear under 'Other Device'. Eg:
    h) If g above is true, then do steps a-f for 'Unknown Device'. It may also show as 'COMx'.

Even DRIVER PACK 6 didn't help? Then likely it's a 'Code 10 error' next to 'Prolific USB-to-Serial' device. Click here to fix that.

Even 'Code 10 error' fix didn't help and yellow mark () is STILL not gone? Go to Troubleshooting below.

How To Scan / Diagnose Any Car with OBD2 Software...

Step 1: Install your OBD2 software (if you don't have it — checkout TOAD OBD software). Do NOT launch it yet.

Step 2: Connect ELM327 USB to your computer and car's OBD port (usually underneat dashboard/steering wheel).

Step 3: Place the key in the ignition and turn it forward to 'ON' position. (Position where all dashboard lights are on. This is one position before engine starts.)

Step 4: Start your OBD diagnostic software. Click 'Connect', and it should auto-connect to your vehicle. That's it!

TIP: If you want maximum data reported from the car — turn on the engine.

Yes, you can safely drive the vehicle while ELM327 is plugged in and application is monitoring car's data. Keep eyes on the road at all times.

Troubleshooting: Solutions for ELM327 Connection Issues...

Common Solutions:

If you're unable to connect successfully to your car, then that's because of 2 reasons:

  1. Your vehicle is notOBD2 compatible.
  2. Random issues that can be fixed with below solutions...

Here are solutions in recommended order:

  1. First check that ELM327 is physically working (not defunct). When you plug in the cable into a USB port, all the lights on ELM327 interface/device should flash. And then it'll return to 1 red light (power).
    Condition of a defunct ELM327 interface: All lights will not initially flash, and only red light will be on.
  2. Restart computer (while keeping cable connected to laptop). Try again.
  3. Plug USB into different physical port of your computer. Try again.
  4. If all above solutions fail, then we will help you (only if you are Total Car Diagnostics customer). Here's all you need to do...

    Connect ELM327 USB cable into laptop. (Don't need to plug the other end to car)

    Step 1: Go to Control Panel.

    Windows Vista/7/8/10: Control Panel » System » Device Manager
    Windows XP: Control Panel » System » 'Hardware' tab » Device Manager

    Step 2: Expand 'Ports (COM & LPT)' and 'Other Devices'.

    Step 3: Take picture of the screen (Press 'Print Screen' key on the keyboard then paste into any graphics program. Or take shot with camera/phone.)

    Step 4:Contact us and attach the picture.

Free Software To Test If ELM327 is Working with Windows and Vehicle...

Step 1: Install EasyOBD. Do not launch it until Step 4 below.

Step 2: Connect ELM327 USB/Bluetooth to laptop and car.

Step 3: Turn on car ignition. (One step before engine turns on)

Step 4: Launch EasyOBD. It will automatically connect.

Diagnostics

If first 5 lines are GREEN — then ELM327/Windows is 100% installed correctly. In this case, can get TOAD pro software.

If any of the first 5 lines are RED — then OBD2 scanner won't work on your car. Rather take it to mechanic.
