Code reader

Hello people. Can anyone help me? I have a 2000 'T' REG GTV 3 Litre 24V. I am trying to find an engine fault code reader that will ork on my car. I just baught a geniscan gs400 only to find it won't read my engine computer. I just get link error all the time! This is the second device I have tried and I don't want to give up as the garage charge so much for this service...

Re: Code reader

Do you have a laptop at all david? if so i would recommend purchasing a cheap obd2 usb cable off ebay such as this

Ebay Cable

and then purchasing Alfadiag software from their website


The cable needs to run the KWP2000 transmission protocol i believe, so best checking that in the listings, if you dont have a laptop then im sure someone can help you as which stand alone device to purchase, although the alfadiag software is brilliant as it doesn't just read and reset codes it has many other features such as relay testing, power graphs etc etc.

Remind me again what the benefits of owning an alfa are
i spend all my time in the tech lounge and the car spends most its time on the ramps in a garage

They all haev the same obd16 pin connector. Used it on the mrs's spider and my 156 so with alfa diag you'll be fine. Chat to rarebear as he does the correct cables
