Multiecuscan proxy alignment - can i do yours for free

Hi All

Following on from the tips and advice given to me on other threads regarding MultiECUScan software and cables, as some of you may know I bought a second hand Dell laptop from Ebay for just over 50, bought the cables from the links that many of your provided (thankyou) and now bought the paid version of the software I've successfully reset my Service Indicator and done a Proxy Alignment which has successfully got rid of the flashing mileage.

Wow, well pleased!!

I'm based 10 minutes from junction 4 of the M25, if anyone is willing to come over to me who has any ECU resetting needed, I'm happy to do it for you free of charge if you're willing to come over.

So whether it's that annoying Proxy Alignment or just switching off the seatbelt alarm, I'm your man!!

Only problem I encountered were a few of the menus gave error messages on connection. Other than that it's a job well done.

Thanks to everyone that gave me advice on this.
Thanks 44sunsets thanked for this post

+1 from me too.

I can offer the same service, but no doubt coming down all the way to Cornwall is a bit OTT. Still, the offer is there, but I'm no expert at all so maybe we can learn together!

A couple of error messages that I got. Didn't stop me connecting to the right modules to reset what I wanted though.

Does anyone know if there's a way to change the KM to Miles on the software? Couldn't find a setting for that.

I have my Own fiat Ecu scan software on my laptop. I had flashing milage a year or so ago, but have not seen it since. I have seen many people talking about flashing milage on here, so it's only a matter of time before it comes back.

My question is what is the proxy alignment and how does that fix the flashing milage ??

I will plug my car in and have a look at whats on there when I get a chance. obviously whilst its not flashing I'm not going to start resetting stuff.

Do you have a "modified" interface? Many of the cheap ones have a design error that connects a 120 ohm resistor across the CAN bus pins. This causes errors on some modules. The modification is to remove the resistor. You can check for the modification by measuring between pins 6 and 14 (CAN bus) of the OBD connector with a multimeter set to ohms. If it reads about 120 ohms you have a unit with the design fault. The resistor can be removed yourself if you are OK with a soldering iron. The location of the resistor depends on the interface you have.

I can also help other members with my Multiecuscan setup. I'm located on the A14 just west of Cambridge.

HTH,
Robert G8RPI.

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

My 2001 punto 1.2 has the base speedo display it's showing just over 90 k. I have a replacement instrument cluster tacho/temp gauge etc. When I swap them over the odometer flashes and also another red warning light. Can these be reset.
How far west of Cambridge are you.


Thanks
