Trouble connecting with PST2

Recommended Posts

I'm having a problem with my laptop based PST2 that I wanted to see if anyone else had ever encountered. I tried a different laptop and different cable on 2 different cars(993) so I'm down to either the KTS card itself or something in the software is amiss. Basically, it will go through the whole scan and then say "System Not Found" after the scan is complete. I know there is some communication because if you leave the car off, the PST2 will prompt "Is the ignition switched on?" and then automatically start the scan when the ignition is switched to the second position. Any thoughts greatly appreciated!

Thanks for the responses guys. I have tried it on 2 different cars and checked the connectors on the KTS card. I'm pretty short on options at this point so I think I will make up a shorter cable (current cables are 3 meters) to see if it might be related to signal loss or interference. I do have a ferrite suppressor at the KTS end of the cable but who knows.
