Chinese code reader-it works
I posted here a few days about some codes I had showing which were read for me by a local garage.
As it happens they were 1177 and 1178 (misreported by me at the time).
From researches on alfa 156 forum here I discovered they were long term fuel trim alarms most likely relating to the maf. A new one is on the way, but not a Portland one.
I bought a Chinese code reader on ebay no: 220044311051, described as
GS300 CAN OBD2 EOBD HONDA GM ALFA Trouble Code Reader at a huge price of £21.99.
It arrived and works perfectly on my 2001 166. I can recommend it. So easy to use. In fact so easy to use I am wondering what other cars I can code read as otherwise where is the fun?
I hope this helps somebody else here.
