Re: proxy alinement(sp)

Proxi alignment is a process using the 'Examiner' to set up all the electronic control units and Nodes correctly with the body computer.

It makes sure everything is in sync with one another so that they can share all the information on the CAN lines.

If say, you change a control unit, and didn't carry out a proxi alignment, there could be a communication fault between 1 or more control units/ nodes.
For example;

if a abs control unit was changed, the abs sends a reading to the body computer, which then sends the reading to the dash speedo.

If proxi alignment wasn't done then there could be a problem with the body computer recognising the new abs control unit, and might not give a speedo reading at all.

Re: proxy alinement(sp)

why would you want a glow plug lights working ina petrol car? or are you asking if your gonna have problems with the whole unit? i doubt youll have problems, should be the same set up but a glowplug light added for the diesel versions.

HAHAHAHAHAH just noticed your avatar,baby changing gear, .......wondered why you had that avatar

Can you take bulb out Dave or are the LED's? Does everything else work ok?

You can access some clusters through examiner but not sure if you can go much further except check lights/gauges,need to look into this.What year is the car?

Re: proxy alinement(sp)

Hopefully you'll be ok Dave - the Marea and Cinq both have lights on the dash which aren't used.

Re: proxy alinement(sp)

No to mileage, 20 minutes from start to finish (including getting rid of any errors in the systems). It doesnt work out mpg, thats down to body computer and efi ecu.
