Ficht'Ram injection

Using Ficht Diagnostic Software for 2002 and older engines and I'm getting an error message. I don't know if it's a message from the engine or the diagnostic softare.

 

database error 22 in model function

Re: Ficht'Ram injection

What software are you using and has it worked OK in the past? What is your engine model number?

 

Code 22 means a temp switch is closed or the wiring shorted.

This message is popping up before I can get into the error codes. I know what I should see on the next screen but it's not getting that far.

Re: Ficht'Ram injection

Is this factory software package purchased from a dealer or from an online source such as Ebay and from an off-shore company?

Re: Ficht'Ram injection

It's factory software. It even has a part # 3030336. It worked just fine on my old laptop but that laptop died.On the one I have now it doesn't seem to be getting to the screen of actual diagnostics. The old pc was Windows 98/dos. I found another one that is Windows 98/dos. I copied the program to the hard drive just like the other one but I don't seem to be getting the same results. I found a couple of blogs about configuring the com port but it didn't say what to configure. Not sure if the com port is my issue.
