cableshack k+dcan owners, I have a question

Recommended Posts

I know Jimmy will be back soon but I am impatient. When you hook up his  k+dcan cable to INPA does it fake the battery detection, ie black dot on battery even when it isn't plugged into the car?

 

Thanks.

Mine works true to the ignition - not faked.

I am wondering about the battery detection, not ignition m8 :)

Both Batt and Ign come on with ignition, battery is detection from obd port which you can see from the led,

the only time you would need battery detection that I have come across is when doing smg reset using dis, it needs to see ignition off but battery on to finish job,

this is done by changing a setting in an ini file, I have only had to do this once in the 7 years I have been using these cables.

Just found this again, I had forgotten all about it.

 

My concern is in ISTA+ it wants you to turn the ignition off with battery connected to initiate the DPF regen, obviously my old k-line cables no good for this car so I wanted to make sure I would be able to complete a forced regen.

I have seen with fault code resets you just cancel it when it tells you to power down and it will work but that's not the problem I will have with the DPF regen option.
