156 JTs Code reader & re-set
I've seen the 156 JTS OBD leads on ebay but what else would I need. What other hardware is required and must I buy expensive software too?
The 156 JTS seems to like asking to go to the garage because its ECU has detected an error. Yes it could perhaps be an advantage for some but I am getting a little tired of this because it almost always involves me paying a standing charge for the codes to be read. The irony of my car undertaking a diagnosis that requires me to pay someone else for the job it has done is wearing thin.
It all becomes even more frustrating when the ECU has decided to log an error that has me paying someone only for me to say "I'm not fitting a blooming KAT, just clear the alarm please" and over a thousand miles later that code error has never returned!
It seems that the JTS ECU fault algorithm could perhaps be a little too sensitive and temperamental. So I would like to be able to read these codes myself, clear them if I feel they are wrong, they will surely return if it turns out I was wrong. I would also like to clear codes after I've replaced parts.
