Re: Alfadiag and Airbag help!
COM1 does not sound healthy to me, usually COM1 and 2 are in use in BIOS for specific tasks (modem, mouse ) I use COM3 on my Toshiba dualcore 1.8 gherz and Vista , and AD connects without any problem. Just last saturday a guy with a 98 1.8 156 visited me to collect a cable and see a demo on his car. Funny was that he had a MY99 airbag with an error in it but no warning light.
He also had a problem with a stalling engine (600rpm) after resetting with AD, he later phoned that the car behaved OK !
But I must admit that sometimes it is a pain to get the car electronics handshaking with AD. I set the values in AD at the highest possible settings, but I suspect that it all depends on the CPU in the laptop.
