As this thread is about my UniDiag software, I thought I give some answers here.
Does it just cover the JTD?
Yes. For EDC15 a .def file is available so it is possible to read realtime values. For EDC16 it will come in the future, but faultcodes can already be read and reset.
The annoying thing about that group is the constant flood of e-mails drowning out the important stuff in my inbox.
Well, you can switch to only 1 email per day or turn it off completely and just look at the website when you want to.
Also waiting for approval hope it helps with older 145's
Probably. kwp71diag does work with a lot of ECU's from that period. Only some IAW Marelli's do use another protocol not supported.
I am working on a UniDiag version for kwp71/81.
I don't suppose that there's any chance that the software/cable will work on a 24Valve 164 (1993 vintage) do you think? All the diagnostic connectors are three pin weatherpoof type.
My software does work with the 164 also! It does work with the 75 and 164 TS as early as 1987. The ECU's in the 164 mainly use the KWP71/81 protocol.
Have a look at the following (dutch) forum to see it applied on a 164:
Alfa 164 ClubRegister :: Bekijk onderwerp - Diagnose software ECU's:Unidiag en KW 71/81 protocol
Here the beta version of UniDiagKWP71 is used. It only works with the interface I supply btw. I also have the adapter cable for the alfa three pin diagnostic connector.
had it working yesterday om my daughter's 147 Jtd , I am using the edc15 def file , there seems to be limited capability - any one found a better def file for Jtd ?
What is the problem?
But! can i just clarify that it will work on a 2.0T.S. Spider 1997, if you tell me where i should be looking i will go and dig out ECU and discover if its the 3 pin or what ever (7!?)
On the 1997 Spider, the KWP71 protocol is used, so my KWP71 software should work. It will indeed use 3 pin connectors (1 for each ECU: engine, ABS, airbag, ..).
The interfaces I have available are adapted to also communicate with the Airbag, ABS and other ECUs besides the Engine ECU. These extra connections can also be switched of with a small internal switch.
Kind regards, Sander.
