is it torque, obdll or vauxhall??? Sign In

Hi There

Im Just wondering if anyone could help, i just purchased a zifira b (on a 57 plate) over a week ago off a private seller, which seemed in good nick,
anyway after a couple of days driving the car i noticed the dreaded engine light appear on the dashboard of the car, and i noticed that the ashtray was missing from under the handbrake which sent red flags flying,
so instead getting someone to check in the garage i decided to give it a go at getting a bluetooth obdll connector and plugged it into the connector in the car and i downloaded the torque app from google playstore but i kept on having problems establishing a connection wirelessly or by blue tooth so i went onto amazon and got a op-com usb diagnostics scanner and i made sure i had the micro adapter so i could plug it into my galaxy s5 neo smartphone, it automatically started torque as soon as i connected it but i keep getting the same error message all the time, which is really frustrating because i have triad messing with the settings etc, i am a pretty tech person most of the time,
((No Response From The OBD Adapter,Did You Select The Right Baud Rate))
Could anyone please tell me where i am going wrong or if theres another problem somewhere,??

i purchased the Stoga OP-COM Diagnostic Interface Code Reader Scanner
from amazon it said on the site that it is able to be used with a smartphone but on the instruction cd it only give you instructions to use from a pc, i have purchased a bluetooth and wifi obdll as well and they both have a pproblem connecting to the ecu too,
I have read somewhere that vauxhall have a problem with these obdll diagnostics, i have been trying to research for days now and its sending me bonkers, as i am getting mixed answers

i would be very grateful for any answers : )

This forum is based here in the states and that make of vehicle is not sold here, so advice may be limited.

Will a standard hand held scanner access the controller you attempting to communicate with? Maybe swing into a repair shop and have them plug their scanner in to be sure you don't have issues with your vehicle. If it works fine that way, you may need to contact the manufacture of the equipment you are using to get answers.

Since we volunteer our time and knowledge, we ask for you to please follow up when a problem is resolved.
