Todays problems with the GT - unable to connect to ECU and side light change fail
had a little poke around with my GT today.
since i picked the GT up the side lights have been very dull. both right and left side lights have an error.
so i did a bit of research and decided to change them both.
the drivers side light already had its little black tab snapped off but i was able to wiggle it out using the wires and got it changed within a few minutes. light error now gone and working well.
the passenger side however has been a nightmare. the tab was in place but the light seems to be stuck. ive gripped it with pliers, my fingers, and wiggled it by the wires but nothing. its stuck.
it comes out so far but i just cant get it any further.
does anyone have any ideas?
i gave up on the side light for the day and decided to try out multiecuscan for the first time.
i bought a cable connector (pic 1)
and plugged it in under the drivers side just above the fuse box (pic 2 and 3) and it seems to be all the way in there to me.
however when i click on connect it says com1 port is not present (which i am assuming means it isnt connecting to the ecu (pic 4) any ideas?
i really want to take a look at whats going on wiht my ecu as i am having some intermittent problems with my electric windows and a flashing odometer.
any help would be appreciated, sorry for the long post
