The question raised was about the earlier cars with a 3 pin interface (under bonnet). Your instructuons and most code reders won't work on this car.

Hi,
Multiecuscan is probably the best software www.multiecuscan.net

You can check your exact model here http://www.multiecuscan.net/SupportedVehiclesList.aspx. If the module is listed in red you need the registered version. Interface needs to be a USB (or serial 232) KL / Vag-Com type plus a 3 wire adaptor.
If your car has an Magneti Marelli ECU you could try IAW Scan http://iaw-scan2.sourceforge.net/

As I saw it, my ECI is from GM, and Multiecuscan can't read this model's engine ECU. What sofatware can I actually use in order to read the engine ECU?

What ECU (model number) is fitted to your car?

Hi,
That is a Delco / Delphi ECU. They are not supported by Multiecuscan. You might be able to use software desigined for GM / Opel / Vauxhall cars e.g. Corsa. I think early GM cars used 10 pin socket so you would have to look at the wiring diagrams for both and work out the connections. Even then there is a good chance the software won't talk to the Fiat. Also I think the ECU is coded to the ignition key, lock and immobiliser so you have to get a set if fitting used parts.

Re: How to scan the car

IAW Scan is fine for mk1 punto 55, 60 & 75. It should work fine with the 85 too but I've always had issues with it and the P85 ecu. I'd give IAW Scan a go first before paying anything for MultiECUScan @alexgm Its actually a really neat bit of software, should do anything you'll ever need it to do.

When it comes to the 90 I've never managed to read the codes, it must be possible but its not something I've ever needed so never put much effort in.

And just to be complete, a GT has a bosch ecu and you can do a blink test where you bridge some wires and the light on the dash blinks out codes. I have more info on this is anyone needs but I wont go into it here as that not what anyone has asked.

Re: How to scan the car

All right, thanks alot @blu73 and especially @g8rpit for your support. I'll try soon the connection on the ECU and give you a feedback as soon as i receive the materials. I'll try the free software IAW scan first and see what it's like
