    Without an Auto-Scan we don't know which controller isn't responding, so please post a full Auto-Scan.

    Ignition on?

    What are the exact results when you do [Options] -> [Test] with the interface connected to the car?

    The engineering problems are likely insurmountable. It would be like proposing to land a rocket booster section on a barge floating in the middle of the ocean.

    I tried the auto scan and get the same message ''no response from controller'' for each of the modules.

    That's not "exact" results.

    How about a screen-shot of the MessageBox? Or simply press CTRL-C while the MessageBox has the focus and paste the results (which will be text) here?

    You didn't answer whether you have the ignition on.

    What color are the LEDs on the interface?

    Does this car have an aftermarket radio?

    ok -Uwe-been trying to do a screen shot and or ctrl+c and not working for me. So during my head scratching session I was looking at the fuse panel and found a missing fuse for dome lights, replaced the fuse and IT WORKS, I got full access to car computer. And yes ignition was on, leds were flashing green and it does have after market radio. Sure hope I'm all good now, thank you for the help, I may be back.
