i got one of those cables thrown in with car i bought a while back, and a disc that calims to be an On Board Diagnostic suite, but that turned out to be a load of rubbish anyway so i was never interested in the disc.
however, can i modify the cable myself as you suggest rarebear?
" connect pin 3 with pin 7 for airbag control and 1 and 7 for ABS "
and must you only pair 3 with 7, and 1 with 7 alternately, or can they be joined together and left that way indefinitely?
also, if i can make use of the cable, which diagnostic suite is best value for the diy'er?
fiatecuscan, alfa diag, etc etc
if i have three 156's to care for, MY98 2.5v6, MY02 2.4 JTD, MY041.9JTDm will the one cable and one suite connect to them all?
thanks in advance
