Technical Brava 1.2 obd location and alternator lead question

Well now I'm spoilt for choice, two contenders!

I managed to get the cap with 6 red dots off the lead by the suspension top/fusebox and it revealed the yellow/red connector.

I also managed to get the brake pedal in my ear and get the cap off the connector above the pedals, the white one. This might be the obd, but if so then what's the yellow/red connector?

Also, I was expecting a 3 pin diagnostic cable (can't even remember why, read it someplace) but it looks like a normal obd2 might even plug in...

Any thoughts appreciated.

Under dash certainly looks correct..

Plug and play ;)

Tell us the CODEs you get.. we can figure it out :)
 
Yes it is a standard obd2 connector


What are you going to read it with?
 
I've been looking at the various tools, seems to be a minefield.

Some say V2.1 has bugs, best buy v1.5.

Some tools don't do diesel (I'd like to try it on my Audi too..)

I think this might do the job - Vgate iCar Pro BLE 4.0 OBD2 Diagnostic Tool (Amazon)
(quite a bit more expensive though...)

lambda sensor would be my (completely uneducated) guess.

I had one go on a Jeep once..

There's no misfire, runs fine.

Seem cheap on ebay, just hard to get at (have to go underneath).

OMG................

No .....code.....tonight.........waaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa

Do you have a laptop , what operating system is it?

Charlie please tell him about free multi ecu scan software and reccomend a lead .

>Do you have a laptop , what operating system is it?

Yup, win 10 home.

software/lead sounds interesting..
 
Is the VS600 better than the little bluetooth tools then?

I know the software is extra if you want to reset but the realtime dials on android looked pretty.
(I'm kidding, sort of..)

Or the laptop idea sounds like a goer too...(more up-gradable maybe)
Update: just noticed VS600 is Software upgradeable via internet.

OK, VS600 is front runner, just waiting for info on the laptop option.

Thanks all, what a great forum.
:)

They were cheaper..

The 890 looks better on price.. but do check features


OR

Look at

MULTIECUSCAN software

Free version should do all engine work yor Brava could want.. 15quid of cables and you should be in business :)
hand held readers are good in that
it's plug and play ,
Plus it will work across a range of different manufacturers.
All European market petrol cars since 2001
And all euro market diesels since 2004.

Amazing what it does for the price.

The free software may be less useful on non fiat cars as it only reads basic engine codes on non fiat vehicles.
 
OK, I got 4 codes, I'm not sure I'm much the wiser...

P0141 - 02 Sensor heater, Circuit bank 1 sensor 2
P1141 - DTC definition not found.
P0136 - 02 Sensor Circuit bank 1 sensor 2
P0115 Engine coolant temp senor 1 circuit.

Sensor heater = lamdba?
Not found is worrying, I specified Fiat..
The engine temp gauge seems to work properly.

Thoughts?
