Trying to read COM Port hangs up

I send a byte packet to request a value from my device, the packet is sent correctly however when it gets to  indvalue = IndicatorPort.ReadLine()
it just hangs nothing happens
Public WithEvents IndicatorPort As New IO.Ports.SerialPort 
Public CurrCOMPort As New ArrayList
 
Public Sub RequestProbeValues()
        Dim Packet(4) As Byte
        Dim intloop As Integer
        Try
            For intloop = 0 To CurrCOMPort.Count - 1
                IndicatorPort = CurrCOMPort.Item(intloop)
                Packet(0) = 42 'Constant BMS message
                Packet(1) = 4 'Constant Length of Table upload
                Packet(2) = 6 ' Constant Command of Table upload
                Packet(3) = 23
                Packet(4) = 152
                IndicatorPort.Write(Packet, 0, 4)
                System.Threading.Thread.Sleep(100)
                Read()
            Next
        Catch ex As Exception
            MessageBox.Show("Unable to Communicate  -Request Probe Value")
        Finally
        End Try
    End Sub
    Public Sub Read()
        indvalue = IndicatorPort.ReadLine()
    End Sub
