Post can't connect the torque purchased version but free version connects
on: July 30, 2018 (GMT)

i installed the free version of torque and it is working ok. i just purchased the full version and now this version will not connect. the obd2 is connected to the pad but unlike the free version (lights come on) the lights do not come on (no connection) with the purchased version. because one works (even now) and the other doesn’t, i must need to do something else to set it up but i don’t know what. i went to torque setting and the only thing i could think of is the obd2 adapter settings, i chose the “choose bluetooth device” and i chose the one needed (only 1 shown), i quit torque and restarted it, i can’t find where it will tell me that it is set up correctly. what can i do to get this connected.

Your adapter can only handle one app
at a time. Make sure the other app is
not active. You may have to power off
the adapter to establish a different
connection.

Double check that Torque Pro’s adapter
settings are correct.

thanks i just got your reply. i started trying the obd2 out on my 97 dodge dakota. the lite version worked ok, but i still haven’t got the pro version to work, in adapter status the “connection to ecu” always has a no, while the connection to adapter will connect and the adapter error count will fluctuate from 0 to 8.
this after the lite version was deleted.
i then connected it to 2008 chevy blazer and it seemed to work ok. if you have any ideas why the limited/no connection to the dodge, i would appreciate it.
thanks.

I believe Torque Pro’s error checking is
more robust than Lite. I suspect the
adapter is having problems with the
protocol used by the 97 Dodge.

Some cheap adapters have problems
with the older protocols like VPW, PWM
and ISO. There are threads on this forum
that discuss this.

I suggest trying a better quality adapter
if possible. I use BAFX Elm327 BT and
Obdlink MX adapters which have worked
on the older protocols.
