First meaningful post on here!
I have recently got a 98 146 1.6 TS and since I got it the injector light on the dash has been lit.
I got together the bits needed to interrogate the ECU to get the fault codes using an old laptop, rs232-OBD2 lead, OBD2 to 3pin adapter and KWP71 software and got the following error codes:
Read diagnostic faultcodes :
Bytes received: 08 F2 11 48 80 25 A2 45 92 7F
DTC: 0x08 = 8
state : 7
type : 0x12 unknown
condition1 : 0x11
condition2 : 0x48
counter : 0x80
DTC: 0x25 = 37
state : 5
type : 0x02 Short circuit at GND
condition1 : 0x45
condition2 : 0x92
counter : 0x7F
I'd be obliged if someone could look at these and see if I am interpreting these correctly,
the second one is battery 'short circuit at ground', I suspect this may have been stored from before I got the car as the battery was a dead duck, I'll check it again in the morning as it may no longer be present.
the first one is listed in the fault codes as 'engine timing sensor', is this the crankshaft sensor? If so where is it and is it difficult to fix?
Quite chuffed that I managed to get the diagnostic working, if anyone in the Derby area needs some fault codes reading/resetting give me a shout.
Any help appreciated
