hi there, its my first post!

In my case i was pulling my hair out as you most likely are trying to figure it all out.

i soldered pins 7+8 on the interface as our vehicles require it. Inpa would detect battery and ignition and even could look at engine values and yada yada...

long story short to end my 2 weeks of insanity and obsession. i simply bought a new cable and all was well.

If you have a cable with a white circuit board that may very be your issue like me. Purchasing one with the green circuit board did the trick

if you google white circuit board k can on google you will see posts about this very subject.

this is on my 2003 4.4.. with the 2002 im no expert but take a look under the hood to be sure you dont have an "ADS" connector as you'll be wanting to connect through that instead. As long as ediabas is setup correctly and in my case using version 7.3 worked for me you should be good to go. rheingold will pick it up quickly.

on a side note try using the K+D can utility, perhaps that may have been part of my sucess.. best of luck!
