Hi from Berkshire England
« on: June 25, 2021, 11:04:51 am »
New to this and not a regular user of any forum so apologies if I have messed up.
I own a 2015 Explorer but came across yr forum as hunting info on the TigerTool diagnostic ECU ELM management tool.
I couldn't get it to work with the cheap USB ELM cable so gathering any info I can.
Love the Explorer. My first Triumph.
Other bikes in the stable include 78 Z1000 , 81 CB750 and 900 Bol Dor.

Welcome to the forum.  You might try a better OBD cable, that has been the problem most have had getting the Tigertool to work.   
From and earlier post about the interfaces that work:

Hi
Are these ELM's still best to use with the tiger tools software.
I copied the links off a post u made for this on the Explorer forum

Best quality unit, BBFLY-BF32301 on Amazon:-
https://www.amazon.co.uk/bbfly-BF32301-ELM327-V1-5-Diagnostic-Scanner/dp/B074JDCX59

Same unit from AliExpress, much cheaper but longer leadtime:-

Alternative (cheaper) unit from AliExpress that's proved reliable so far:-
https://www.aliexpress.com/item/USB-ELM327-V1-4-Plastic-OBDII-EOBD-CANBUS-Scanner-with-FT232RL-Chip-ELM-327-OBD2-USB/32720127143.html

Hope this helps.
