The ELM software is happy to use an ELM327 bluetooth adapter, i guess that's why they called it Software on ELM street.Are you using the required cable?
Thanks Steve - I'll check that although i think my fault is a little different to yours, Battery voltage doesn't decrease when attempting to crank and also my ECU isn't able to be queried via the OBD2 port whereas the Transmission and Fuel Pump modules are.I just had a similar situation on my WN PPV. I had recently painted my engine compartment and found the Engine ground going through the fuse bracket was the weak link. Think yours (VE body) is straight to the shock tower but it was behaving the same. If you want to test the theory run a jumper cable from your negative battery post to the Engine on a good ground. If it fires right up then you got a bad ground I would think at the chassis point where the engine grounds. Just need a long pair of cables. Or if you got an extra battery go to the battery jumping post up front and ground to the engine.
