diagnostics software

Right....I have a laptop so can I get hold of software to diagnose 156, if so how much does it cost and what leads do I need to go from the laptop to the diagnostics port in the 156...any help would be greatly appreciated ta.

Also...does anyone know what value resistors I need to put across the connectors on the cables from the floor that should go to under seat sensors so that I can fool the computer into thinking there are sensors in the seats so that the airbag light goes off, no worries about the responsibilty issues as I don't care about the airbags thing I just need the light to go off when it should when I put the car through it's manx test, then I'll take the resistors out...the airbag light has to work so it gets through the test for me to register it as a manx car and not a uk one...ta.

Re: diagnostics software

I have a feeling that if the airbag light is on then all the bags are disabled so i'd leave the resistor in place.

Thanks for that David....that is really cheap, I was expecting around £140...I'll definitely get it..that and the interface lead will pay for themselves within two would be visits to the dealer at £42 + vat each time..ta
