Re: FiatEcuScan diagnostic software

Thanks for the invitation Shadey, but I've already ordered an ELM cable, so now I'll have both

Cheers for all the help,
Andy

Re: FiatEcuScan diagnostic software

hi , i'm new... been reading this post for a while and i am a little confused . I need several diagnostic cables to be able to acces all my cars computers? What is the latest elm327 version? I found v1.5 but i've read on a website that the 1.5 is a fake and the latest version is 1.4a .

I've found and elm327 v1.4 on ebay ( actually alot more than 1 xD ) but they're all made and shipped from china ... is it the legit elm327 cable of a copy?

What cable should i get if i want to check on an airbag error code? ( i own a fiat stilo 5dr 1.6 ) .

Re: FiatEcuScan diagnostic software

I have this cable(actually I have a lot of cables), works very well, you'll have no problems connecting to the Airbags. No adapters needed as it has a micro switch fitted.

Yes, but I have to admit I was scared to do anything once I'd connected to it. I had a quick look around and logged out.

However, I've had other forum members ask for help and I've let them use my laptop and cables to clear their Airbag faults with no issues.

You need a firearms license to mess with airbags.

I've been to shoots and clubs with friends that like guns, that was close enough for me.

The destructive power an airbag contains is more than I wish to mess with.

Find a fault code, change a bulb, YES.
But having a steering wheel explode in my face because I pressed the wrong button, NO!

I leave stuff like that to the experts, I have a very pretty face, let them blow theirs off, I like mine where it is ...

Re: FiatEcuScan diagnostic software

Lol. I've just got this image of your laptop screen, 'press F11 to disconnect' 'press F9 to detonate airbag'.

They're ok to work with, just need to be sensible and respect them.

Did you adjust the latency timer / buffer limits on the port? When im looking at the airbag screens its seems to want to timeout. Just easier to ask what settings youve adjusted it to than go potching :-p.

Re: FiatEcuScan diagnostic software

Botch perhaps?

botch. v. 1. To ruin through clumsiness. 2. To make or perform clumsily; bungle. 3. To repair or mend clumsily. n. 1. A ruined or defective piece of work.

So, for example:

"I met a gorgeous blonde in the pub last night, took her home for a bit of potching"

*waits for a flood of other examples*
