Electric hood adaptor cable for MultiECUScan software
This is a special break-out adaptor cable specifically designed for use with the MultiECUScan software package,
to offer systems coverage on some vehicles with an electric hood module.
See the Supported Vehicles list
on the MultiECUScan website for coverage details.
This adaptor also features some additional pin connections to support future software coverage.
Using this adaptor cable removes the need to modify your own interface cables with soldered connections that may
prevent them from being used with other vehicles.
What is included in the package?
'Purple' adaptor lead (MultiECUScan 'Adapter 4') - to allow electric hood diagnostics on some models.
This lead has a purple connector on one end for easy identification.
- Pin 7 on the diagnostic tool end of the adaptor is electrically connected to pins 7, 8, 11 &
13 on the car end of the adaptor.
(Pins†4, 5†&†16†are connected straight-through to offer +12v supply and ground).
Please note this bundle does NOT include any diagnostic interface cables - this is just the 'Adapter 4'
If you require all 4 adaptor cables, they are available here.
If you require the ELM327 and KKL interfaces too, they are available with these adaptor cables in a
hardware-only bundle here, or a full licensed bundle
