Cool Alfa Romeo Spider 916 Electronic Hood

Hi All,

I currently use Multiecuscan 4.0 with the green and red leads to generally interrogate the system and more to reset airbag as this is failure for mot's.

However i now have a problem with the electronic hood, flashing light for 10 seconds when starting and then no response.

The hood can be closed manually using the electronic buttons behind the seat for the release and opening of box.

So thought i'd get the purple lead to diagnose the hood ecu, when switching on the ignition and then pressing 'Y' to start the diagnostic, the key code light on the dash almost comes on immediately, this i think bars the connection and results in not finding the ecu!

Has anyone had the same problem and if so did anyone find a way around it?

Many thanks
