OBD pairing fails on 3rd step

Make sure the car is powered on while trying to connect. Might take a second or third attempt on some cars but should definitely work.

I still have been unable to pair using my android phone.  It still fails at "car connection not established." I've tried it in many vehicle power states without success.  

Is there anything else I can do to troubleshoot?

I have same problem fails in 3th step "car connection not established" Tried it over 10 times when car powered on. I am using a Maclean MCE200 on an Ipace 2019. The same ODB dongle works without problem when I try to connect it with Torque. It will connect and read all data from my car so the problem is in the ABRP app. In the 3th step it just takes 1 sec to get the error so looks like a timing issue that perhaps the data from car is not received within a set timer and then the error appears perhaps this timer can be changed ?

We have users confirming that the ipace 2019 works. You really have to make sure that you do not use torque before connecting to the ipace. Also replug the dongle before you connect to ABRP and make sure no other app is associated to it and runs automated steps based on a connection. Also Y-cables should be avoided if used, as that could confuse the dongle if responses from another dongle come in.

Please try again and if it does not work send debug data and let me know the exact time so i can check in the logs if there is anything wrong. You can also send me a mail to samuel@iternio.com with those details.

Samuel thanks for your reply. Yes I know it has been reported to work on Ipace 2019 as I also am in contact to some of these users on other forum. Yes I made sure there is no other application that is connected to the ODB dongle. I took another android phone only installed the ABRP app . I unplug the  dongle from the car. I start the ABRP app and go to link it with OBD dongle. I plug in the dongle it is found in the search box. I select the found ODB. A new window opens and it pass step 1 and 2 and then on step 3 after 1-2 second it stop and gives error message that can not communicate to the car. The car is powered on ready to drive in P modus. I have tried closing and restarting the app always same result. Can you explain me how I can get the debug data to send to you?

Has anyone successfully paired an OBD dongle with ABRP in the I-Pace?  Pairing with the Vgate iCar Pro Bluetooth 4.0 (BLE) OBD2 dongle fails on the third step.

I have another car but I think this is a dongle issue.

In my case I had to close ABRP then pair the Vgate iCar Pro with my mobile and then open ABRP again.

I was then connected to the dongle after step 3.

Good luck

I can confirm this strange behaviour with the Vgate iCar Pro :

- when the "Android-vlink" is not paired with the Android phone, the "Ios-vlink" is not visible whithin ABRP

- when the "Android-vlink" IS PAIRED (code 1234) with the Android phone, the "Ios-vlink" is visible whithin ABRP, but I still cannot succeed with the third step "car connection not established"...

Same problem with my car. Dongle found but failed last step "car connection not established" although is reported to work with same dongle on other Ipace cars it does not on mine. The error is showing very quickly on step 3 can it not be a timing issue that the response of the car is slower and creates a time-out?

Sometimes it requires a few tries. Just keep on trying. We are also working on improving the setup procedure to make it more stable. If it does not work in the end you can always open an upvotys issue through the app via support & feedback.

 

Some cars like the MG ZS EV for example fail at the last step, as the new long range models don't use the same OBD commands. So could be similar issues on other cars as well. But first try it a few times and only if if you can't get it to work you can still create an issue.
