Another 147 Airbag light...


I bought this lead:

and downloaded FiatECUScan to finally clear the airbag light on my 147 Selespeed (2002 model). Followed all the instructions etc, connected to the main ECU (engine and gearbox), all well. I can also connect to the ABS system - again, all well. Not a fault code in sight.

When I switch to position '2' to connect to the Airbag ECU, FiatECUScan tries to connect and then fails, stating that I need to check port and cable.

Does anyone have any thoughts? Seems a bit odd that I can connect to every other system/ECU on the car, but not the airbag.

Look forward to hearing your thoughts...

I've had this a few times with Alfa's especially with the ABS, basically what happens is that this is a can bus system where each section has its own control unit eg. ABS, engine, Airbag, the problem is whenever a fault code is logged in each control unit it fails to communicate with the diagnostic equipment (no idea why)

I suggest keep fiddling with all the connections then keep trying to connect, you will eventually get there
