The dreaded PIN 8!
I've just received my cable this morning, and although labelled as a K DCAN+ cable, it has pin 8. I bought from the Canadian vendor, Dan you'll most likely have the same thing buddy.
I've opened it up, and it seems that pin 8 is joined by solder to pin 7, so in effect is carrying whatever Pin7 is. It looks like an easy enough job, just unsolder from the reverse. So I am assuming on all of the working cables Pin 8 does not exist at all? Alan, would it be possible to put a picture up of yours, so I can be certain before I unsolder this one.
Thanks a lot!
