The ElmScan 5 Compact (USB) Scan Tool has been discontinued. It no longer works with the latest version of OBDwiz software and we are unable to generate license keys for the earlier version. 


If you have your original license key, the ElmScan 5 Scan Tool will work with an earlier version of OBDwiz. Version 2.16 is the version that supports ElmScan 5.


You can download and install v2.16 of OBDwiz software here: https://www.scantool.net/scantool/downloads/266/obdwizsetup_2.16.exe

If you can’t find your original license key, there are other third-party programs that will support ElmScan 5.
