Default Rhiengold ista communication problem to certain modules


I have been using Rheingold for a while now, and every now and then it seem to not want to communicate with random modules. Although when I look at it on the Map view it sees it the modules and shows serial # and all that no problem.

But when I go into service function.....

For example, im trying to bleed my injectors on my 335d.

When i go to service function, then Engine, then DDE, then Bleeding fuel system, then ABL Bleeding, fuel system;
I get the message:

Communication problem with the following control unit:

-Electric fuel pump (EKP) control unit

Continue troubleshooting with following test module in testing schedule:

- Supply to fuel pump

I have a DCan cable $30 one, i tried to solder pins 7 and 8 together it did not help.

Any ideas??

Thank you

Most likely a bad cable.

Yes probably. Get a proper K+DCAN cable OR ICOM made by a serious manufacturer. I payed like 40 EUR for my K+DCAN.

What chassis are you on? What version of data-files do you have installed? Upload a screenshot of your configuration or a log or something and I can take a look :)
