Default K+DCAN Cable Question

I just received the K+DCAN cable and I am unsure that it works. Maybe someone can help me out here. I installed the drivers and did checks. There is a LED on the cable housing that lights when I connect to the computer and goes off in about 20 seconds. Also when it is connected to the OBD connector on the car the LED never comes on. Is it supposed to behave this way...or is it supposed to stay on all the time when connected. Just trying to troubleshoot this thing....any help would be appreciated.

Thanks.

Hi,

Do you have the installation guide? For which car do you want to use this and with which software?

Yes I have the install guide and have done this properly. The question is does the LED stay on all the time when there is a connection...that is what I would expect but could be wrong...or does it go off after 20 seconds or so? The vehicle I am coding is an E70.

Thanks.
