I struggled for a week with the same one Vicki had (newlauch). The company is trying to help me with getting it paired. Today, I received two others that Vicki mentioned and they both paired on the first attempt. They are:BAFX ELM 327 ($23.99) at http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B005NL ... os_product" onclick="window.open(this.href);return false;Turbo3 wrote:Vicki sent me her ELM327 that she could not get paired. At first I had the same problem. If seemed like it would not take any passkey.
After a little reading I tried powering it up and then immediately pairing with 1234 and it worked.
I will need to do some testing to see how long the window is that will allow it to accept the pairing code.
My testing was done with a bench power supply. But after pairing and running my app it will auto connect whenever I power up the ELM327.
It is best to first do the discovery step on the Phone so it shows up as a new device. Enter the pairing code but do not press Enter/Done just yet. Unplug then replug the ELM327 then sent the pairing code. You only need to do this one time to get it paired. (The Leaf is not here to do a real test but it works on the bench)
