Hi guys, i bought FiatEcuScan today and was mighty excited to use it on my car but to my dissapointment, the only thing i could access was my Ecu to reset parameters and all that, but thats not really what i bought it for :( i wanted to use it to reset my service indicator and go into the body computer to check things out there like the seat belt bing and stuff like that but i only get a error when i try to access that stuff as if the cable is unplugged and when i scan it only picks up the engine ecu also, am i doing something wrong? according to the website diagram of cars i should be able to access all of these things with the standard elm cable.

I have the ELM327 Ver 1.5a interface so i shouldnt have problems but i am :(

I may need your services after all Benzina, or maybe I should just splurge and get the software and cable for myself anyway.
After my quick oil change on Saturday, I am still getting the "change engine oil" warning, so obviously I need to reset the error now.... I was hoping the car would do it automaticlly, since it reported the error automatically :lol: Wishfull thinking :p
