I assumed it would be something easily sourced off Amazon or Ebay. Searching for "OBD 2 KKL 16 pin to usb with FTDI chip" doesnt yield any results except for ebay ones listed in China.

Am I searching incorrectly or is there a link to where I could get one already here? THanks!

The Guzzidiag cables from Lonelec (http://lonelec.co.uk/index.php?route=product/category&path=57_20) provide this function. If you aren't already using Guzzidiag, you might want to consider this option and kill two birds with one stone. I've had only limited success with OBD2.

Dave, GuzziDiag uses OBD2, and that cable is equivalent to what Lonelec provide. It has the FTDI chip according to the description. He will just need to get the 3 pin to 16 cable separately.

Just out of interest I searched for this cable on Amazon Australia and found this. Almost twice the price.

I think some vendors are either taking the piss, or really don't want to ship globally.

Don't pay more than $25-30 AU or equivalent of whatever your local currency is. It must have the FTDI chip, or you will be sad. That's for the 16 pin OBD2 USB cable.

The 3 pin to 16 pin cable is only worth $10-15 AU. It's commonly referred to as a Fiat cable.


Lonelec is the best source as they guarantee them to work, and will replace them if they don't.

I got mine from OBD Innovations: [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]

It appears back-ordered from there, unfortunately. The important spec on the cable is FTDI FT232RL. There are cables that look the same, but don't have that chip. Those don't work, I learned the hard way.

This is the link I followed to buy the cables. The 3 pins are too big and don't fit my bike. Not sure what to do. I've got a new beetle map and can't get it into my bike.
