Trying to identify this ALDL OBD1 USB cable. I know I used it years ago and now will need to use again to diagnose an intermittent CE light.
Does anyone know which cable this is? I want to make sure it does not have a counterfeit FTDI chip.
What position should that switch be at?
Can it be used on Windows 8 with following programs?
  • TunerPro for BIN file editing.
  • eehack for data logging and advanced diagnostics.
  • FlashHack for reading and writing BIN files.

Hmm what do you mean by switch position, for me it's just a matter of plugging it into the obd1 port, and then plugging the USB side into one of the USB ports on my laptop.

Take another look at the image I posted. The small black box on the left has a 2 position white switch on the left side of the plug.

Ahh that I'm not sure of, I just took a look at mines and it's like this yellow cap that goes on the two pins, not sure what it does so can't help unfortunately. That being said could you not just plug it into the car and try both switch options and see if you get a connection to go through?
