I just joined the AO forums and didn't really want my first post to be a cry for help but seems it didn't work out that way. /thinks "Guess most people join to ask a question "
I have a 2004 jts spider with the EOBD light on . I had it come on shortly after buying the car and had it diagnosed as a fault with the FEV which they said was due to a loose connection on the fev which was fixed for £95 and all ok .
Then just last week the EOBD light came on again and after
searching your forums I decided to invest in a diag tool as I can see it being some kind of investment !!! However after buying this http://www.ecufix.com/shop/index.php...roducts_id=182
and installing the software I can't get it to work
I downloaded the alfadiag tool version 126.96.36.199 and the virtual com port driver. Having connected the lead to the USB port the hardware was detected and the virtual port driver installed ok . However when connecting the cable to the car and turning the ignition on I can't get a connection .
First off has anyone else used this tool and if so what is the correct method of set up . How do I tell which ecu my car has ? i.e which version of Bosch Mototronic I should be selecting in the alfadiag setup. How do I properley configure the comm port?
I always considered myself of a bit of a pc techie but just can't get this one to work .I might have missed something and also wondered if I should have used the VAG-COM driver for the lead.
When I run the VAG-COM tool it says it sees the comm port 4 but the interface is not ready.
Any help would be most appreciated
