I can not describe how happy I am
My gtv turbo has had airbag light on since I turned the key while one of the airbag connectors was open. Just a stupid mistake. Then I was searching near and far how to reset the light. Especially after none of my friends programs and adaptors could talk to that box.
Then finally there was light when I found this trw2scan but It sounded a bit tricky. Even though I'm an electrician. I thought I was more likely to burn the whole thing then gain anything. But as inspection was creeping closer I decided to just go for it and see what happens. Nothing motivates like nescessity, huh
So, cables and adaptors from e-bay, software from repair wiki, a friend supplied old airbag cable harness for 156,
rummaged my dads drawers for the resistors... Then brought the whole lot inside along with ecu.
I opened the airbag cable plug to se which wire goes where, and had to move some of them. Made dummy resistors, and soldered it all together checking and double checking as I went ahead. You can imagine my dissapointment when windows said "trw2scan has crashed" or something similar
I had absolutely no idea what was wrong. I kept checking connections, drivers, voltages etc. NOTHING helped. I even tried another computer with same result
Then finally looking at the directory I realised I'm supposed to run the .obd file, not the .exe file, and when windows asks which program to run it with, then tell it to use the .exe file! I don't know if that is how you all have done it, but that really wasn't clear to me even after reading the instruction many times. Maybe it's due to my non existant computer skills
Thank you guys so much! It really is something special to have a community like this. And the feeling of fixing it without going to the dealer, well priceless really
