How far west of Cambridge are you.


Thanks
Yes, these should be able to be reset. depends on what the red light is.

I'm at Jct 29 of the A14 a couple of miles from the end of the M11.

Re: Multiecuscan proxy alignment - can i do yours for free

I'll see if I can figure what the flashing red warning is about at the weekend. I've also currently got an issue with power steering not operating and warning light on. The steering wheel has been off centre for ages since I got the car. I realigned it by adjusting tracking at the wheels could this have caused the failure and the light to come on. Is this a recalibration job.

The flashing red light is the door open warning, might this be down to there being no switch fitted on the tailgate on my car.
Can the proxy alignment be sorted with the free version of multiscan.
Are you still up for doing a reset if I came to you at a convenient time.

Hi,
Door open will be missing switch if it has not been linked out. Why is it missing?

No you can't carry out proxi-alignment with the free version of MES

Yes I'm still happy to do a reset nd some diagnostics for you.

The instrument cluster currently on the Punto doesn't have 'door open' indicator or a light in the boot so only assuming it doesn't have a switch.
Can I drop you an email to arrange time to call
Cheers

Re: Multiecuscan proxy alignment - can i do yours for free

Well I must have missed the switch off the seatbelt alarm, I'll have a look at that tomorrow.


Only reason is we have quite a long drive with a gate at the bottom which we have to open, time we drive down there the seat belt alarm is going off, I am not putting on the seatbelt on my drive to take it back off to open the gate.


Electric gates I hear you say......
