    are you using a correct vin to connect?
    if you have an aftermarket chip you should be supplied with a vin number you'll need to enter in your scanner to check for codes... street and performance's website has a vin on there to use with their chips..
    i tried one scanner and couldn't get it to communicate. went to my friends shop and hooked up his scanner, grabbed a vin from some other tpi vehicle and then i could get it to work?
    good luck man

    you gonna be at blazerfest?

    This is the problem, you can't convert the WinALDL from serial to USB yet. They don't work right. Find a friend at a shop and use his scanner.

    You do have to have a VIN number to make the scanner work for the Professional type readers.

    The USB to serial converters don't work.

    Good Luck
