Gt alfaobd

Hi There

I am thinking about doing my own service and after reading the forums useful comments.
I realised that the oil change counter within the ECU needs to be reset.
So got the ELM327 bluetooth connector and fired up ALFAOBD Demo on my galaxy s3.

It can talk to the ECU and collect readings , but when I asked it to diagnose oil change (as it said to reset ecu paramaters) I got the message from ALFAOBD DEMO that I need DPF version?

Can 'we' obtian this from forum/members or do I have to buy another version?

Touchscan also worked, but couldnt see how to read/reset ECU counters with this tool.

I use ECMSPY on my Buell to set the throttle postion sensor and it works well (it can also adjust fuel mapping , but without dyno - I am not going there.

I like the idea/s of talking to ECU's for simple tasks for DIY home mechanics.

Yes Chris I have taken a look at ALFAOBD for my Android tablet. The Demo just lets you 'Look' and to do anything you need the full version which is 30.32.

I have a full version of Multiecuscan if I can help with anything and I am in West Sussex.

On 156 facelift you can reset service indicator using the info centre and info button scrolling to service then holding - and + buttons at same time for 5 secs or thereabouts. No need for diagnostics but not sure about GT?
