    The EML on my Brera came on last evening along with a message: "check engine". I have not used fault code readers before, so I was hoping to hear from others on here who have: is there one you'd recommend? Also, are these car specific? TIA Sent from my Alfa Romeo using Tapatalk

    I'm new to the G club, and have a Vgate VS-890 code reader from my previous car. Just wondering what the thoughts are on code readers v Multiecuscan? Do code readers help much, or is it best to invest in something more specialised to Alfa/Fiat?

    Recently replaced my daughters MAF unit and a friends fault code reader was extremely helpful in diagnosing the problem and in resetting the dash light. His was a Bluetooth model which plugged in the OBD port and the screen was on his phone. Unfortunately I use an I phone and have for years so...
  4. Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    As per title really. My 147 GTA throws up the MCSF light if it's left idling after a cold start. If you just get in and drive 'through' the warm up phase there is no light. The car doesn't run poorly or display any unusual symptoms. The MCSF light flashes and I get the beeping sound until I turn...

    Hi all, have done some reading around this topic but still unsure which to purchase. I'm after a code reader for my car. 57 plate 159 2.4 JTDM Have iPad and iPhone only. Any ideas which one I should purchase? The more it does function wise the better! As always, thanks in advance! Yatesy
  6. Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    I had an engine fault light yesterday, for the first time. It reminded me that it's time I got up to date and bought a code reader. I'm looking for a stand alone unit that will diagnose engine/abs/auto transmission/srs, on most cars. The Launch CRP123 LAUNCH UK - Genuine X431 Car Diagnostic...

    I don't have a laptop so can't use fiat scan. 2005 16v 1.9 JTD will reader work to read and reset warning lights, including the EML light? I hope so as its very cheap...
  12. Alfa GTA
    What are people using for reading the error codes on their GTAs? Before I take a punt on some eBay rubbish, I thought I'd get some recommendations. My understanding is OBDII universal and really anything will do, or am I way off the mark? I've got an annoying reoccurring MCSF error that I want...

    Toolbox are advertising Sealey vs8700 eobd code reader for £42 . Has anyone used one of these on our cars, specifically 159 3.2 jts ? It seems like a worthwhile buy at that price.

    Hi, I've just had a warning show up on my car. Are there any Ipswich-based people with FiatECUScan and a cable that they'd be willing to let me use for a beer token or two? Cheers, Ecnarfi

    OK, I think Alfa UK is doing something similar to create a collage from Alfa photos for the 100th birthday, but Quattroroute Magazine is also inviting its readers to submit their pictures of Alfas new and old. They are great pictures, many are period cars in period times. My favourites are the...
